About me:

My plan is to ever improve my trade, my hobbies, and my relationships with family, friends, and my God. My trade is teaching Math and Computers. My primary hobbies are lutherie (guitar building) and photography. My God is slow to anger and abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor His anger forever; He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us for our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth so great is His love for those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us. If you have questions or gripes about my God, I always enjoy talking with someone who is a seeker. Rock throwers are rarely convinced of anything spiritual and I can respect their desire to believe differently than myself.

  • Covetous contest for me. ;)

  • Looks like a lot of fun. A camera that can handle the elements without flinching inspires confidence. I wish the price made the camera more accessible, but maybe it's worth it. I think the IQ is...

  • It's worth mentioning that most brands outsource some or all of their branded products, but I agree it's not the same Kodak that went bankrupt that is producing this product. That may be a good...

  • The M1 is interesting because of price, established 4/3rds mount, and camera/smart phone interface melding. The RAW quality is good, AF is poor. Even more exciting would be if they made the...

  • The comparison to the D5 price and subsequent comments about matching performance (especially dual processor for speed and AF proficiency) seems to indicate that they are either going after the D5 ...
  • With a title like "Sensor too small?".... you are wondering about this forum? Now with a dose of friendly sarcasm, here are some other thread suggestions to help you avoid anything that might bring ...
  • I'd like one of each.
  • All fine.  Not for me, but the technology developed for such cameras tends to trickle down eventually. I do think that if Sony does this, they will need to make a couple wildlife/sports lenses. ...
  • Hey Richard, I'll write an article about buying value leading used cameras as long as there is a way to update and discuss "recommendations" with the community. :) Many of us keep a pulse on used...

  • So, I think what you all are getting at is that there are other options for less money (and better IQ) that are attractive in this segment. There are no duds, and with competition this good, it is...

  • Yeah, I can groove with that. I was raised to save well and occasionally spend well, but never at the cost of debt. Sometimes, splashing out is worth it.
  • Kharan, though I do shoot the A7 (and not just portraits or landscape), the price comparison was about the A7ii which outclasses my camera by quite a bit. Yes, the E-M1 is faster as I stated. The...

  • Pricing the E-M1ii the same as the very best DSLRs in the "smaller sensor" segment would be great! $1499 would be fine and that's what Olympus should have done rather than charge hundreds more...

  • I agree with the OP on this post. I shoot an A7 (not A7ii). I shot an E-M1 alone side it. Still shoot 4/3rds sometimes. The A7 and E-M1 for practical purposes are the same size. The optics of the...

  • Was that good friend named Mastercard by any chance? ;)
  • Good day Henry, The reason I still keep a pulse on Olympus developments is I still have an E-1 + 50-200mm + 11-22mm. Two of my favorite lenes. The 11-22mm was a wedding present from my wife. The ...
  • I've had an OM-1 without problems for 30 years. I've owned an E-1 without problems for 12 years without major issues (hand grip peeling is all). I owned an E-3 for 5 years without problems. I owned...

  • Since when have they excelled in build quality? At least since 2003 with the E-1. Even in the results of the survey with very small sample size that was linked, many people reported never having...

  • I've had that style of screen on 2 of my cameras. I like it. Works for me.

  • Of course it's no contest iamatrix! Simply because no one was contesting that point. So glad I don't have to research what isn't relevant to the discussion. Oh, and webger15, it doesn't matter that...
