  • Sorry, I admit I haven't looked into your thread closely (as I'm currently dealing with dead hard drives and full network storage drives...so just taking a minute break)...but noticed you ...
  • I'm presuming he meant his prime of choice was 35mm while using film cameras as opposed to 35mm with the Nikon DX format? To the OP, if you mean 35mm in film, then yes, 17mm is the closest. If you ...
  • Really? I can't understand why they can't "guarantee" whether they would uphold the warranty or not. They should "know" which way it would fly. That makes no real sense. It should be a simple yes ...
  • ahh, well, if you can adapt to using the 15mm it would probably be worth it. If you can't, or more importantly, you don't want to, the Oly 17mm is certainly a fine lens. Already fallen for her, but ...
  • why this would be a huge negative? So you can't use a feature on an Olympus body...it's not as if there are other lenses that have an aperture ring, certainly no Olympus lenses anyhow. So ...
  • If you 'Must' have a 35mm equivalent lens, then go with the Oly 17mm 1.8. It's a fine lens. Actually, there isn't really any dud lenses in m43 land. Sure, there are ones that are worse than ...
  • Else stick with the current modern kit zooms from either company. -- Hubert My non-digital gear: Agfa Isolette, Ricohflex VII, Bessa R, Bessa L, Zorky 4, Fed 2, Konica Big Mini, Konica Auto S2, ...
  • From everything I have read and seen, the Panasonic 12-32mm is better optically than the Olympics Ez. Optically, looking only at standard FL kit zooms, the order should be... 1) Panasonic 14-42mm ...
  • Replied in If only...
    if only it was available when I got my GX8...and it was free... Oh well, can't complain, already go a lot of use from my GX8 that I wouldn't if I had waited till now. Still...$500USD vs free...oh ...
  • as, as far as I can tell, the EZ is not that good optically. Not bad mind you, just nothing to wow about. If you are considering the EZ, I would recommend getting the Panasonic 12-32mm pancake ...
  • Replied in Ona Bowery
    Although expensive, they are built really nice. Been eyeing one for a while now. In general I'm also one of those that is thinking of just getting a messenger bag and putting in an insert. Already ...
  • How do you find the 12-60 optically? If it's close enough to the 14-45mm I think I'll be replacing mine as I would love to have the 12mm end and a weather sealed lens for my GX8.
  • Replied in GX85 then...
    As far as I know, the IBIS on the GX85 is pretty comparable to Olympus. Probably only falling slightly to Oly's best IBIS (i.e. not significant enough to be noticed). But the one thing that the ...
  • a spotting scope, yes. With a light tripod, I have problems but with a better tripod, not so much. Albeit, I haven't looked closely at what shutter speeds I have used so can't say how 'slow' I can ...
  • If you need IBIS while on a tripod...I think the problem may be the tripod...
  • Replied in Not.
    Simply put, it's not essential for me. It's nice to have, certainly, and do like it those rare times I would use it. Mostly for use with my manual lenses which is, unfortunately, rather rare. Video ...
  • I have the GX8 which I love... But wondering how it's 4K compares to the GX85? Not sure if that would be enough for me to switch since my eyes didn't do too well with the GX7's EVF, but it would ...
  • In general, yes, I use the LCD for shooting video... Except when manually focusing. I find that I can focus faster and more accurately when using the EVF on my GX8 when shooting manual focus video.
  • Replied in 3D failed...
    Because it was expensive, inconvenien with too many competing designs. Plus consumers just didn't get into it. 4K on the other hand, just like 720p and 1080p before it has quickly gotten cheaper, ...
  • Those are nearly an extinct breed of TV's these days (at least where I live). I don't think you can find them at all, unless they are hidden in some dark corner off in the back...
