  • Not saying it's not a good camera, but these are crucial omissions (in my opinion) for a camera in this price range. Especially when you consider the competition and the other cameras already in...

  • I just want a replacement for the eyecup that fell off of my VF-4 and vanished somewhere in my apartment (thanks, dear). Are any of the eyecups that they sell compatible with the VF-4? I'm not ...
  • I'm an Olympus guy. I shoot with an E-PL5. I'm invested in the Micro 4/3 system, with both Olympus and Panasonic lenses. I want them to do well and make good products.

    One thing that continually...

  • So, essentially what you're saying is that you can't shoot the Panasonic lens wide open anyway and get sharp results...it needs to be stopped down to about the same as the maximum aperture as the ...
  • Correction: The hotshoe has to be exposed in order for a cable to work...so no, I suppose you can't use a flash and a viewfinder simultaneously. That could be a problem if you have a very sunny ...
  • Can you please explain the practical advantage of the Pen-F over the GX8? Because I don't know what it would be.

  • What about fill flash outdoors on a sunny day to prevent lots of shadows on people's faces? That seems like the most logical time to use a flash AND the most logical time to use an EVF.
  • For the price Olympus is asking for the Pen F, why not get a Panasonic GX8 instead? It's weather-sealed, has the excellent DFD autofocus system and offers 4K video. It even has IBIS for your...

  • I was curious about the 45-200mm Panasonic. How does that one perform?
  • Commented on article Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Review

    Back in 2002, I was a reporter for a small newspaper, and we didn't have dedicated photographers, so I was a reporter / photographer. I also switched off between covering news and high school...

  • Well, you CAN use a flash, you'll just need a bracket and a cable for it.
  • The real advantage of 4K video (to me at least) is 8 MP stills. It's like having a burst mode at 30 fps. That would be tremendously useful for sports photographers. 8K would be even...

  • Look at Olympus trying to be Apple.

    Don't get me wrong...I like this camera. It certainly is sexy. But it's severely lacking as a value proposition. Within reason, I don't care how a camera looks....

  • Thanks...that's what I thought too. I guess the guy at the camera shop was misinformed.
  • Addendum: The guy at the camera store told me that the PDAF is only beneficial if you're adapting legacy 4/3 glass to the E-M1. It wouldn't help me at all if I were only using Micro 4/3 glass. So ...
  • So help me understand something. What's the best upgrade path from my E-PL5 + VF-4 viewfinder if I am primarily interested in tracking moving subjects with Micro 4/3 lenses? Is it E-M1, E-M5 Mark ...
  • Thanks for saying this. I use an Olympus body (E-PL5), and I was considering switching from my Oly 40-150 to a Panny 45-200 for the extra reach. Would similar speed issues arise from making that ...
  • I have the E-PL5 and VF-4, both of which I bought used on Craigslist so I got a very good deal on both. But if you're buying new, the E-PL7 and VF-4 together are considerably more expensive than an ...
  • So I ended up renting the 40-150mm f2.8 as was suggested. It's a tremendous lens. Someone also suggested renting the OM-D E-M1 as an upgrade over my Pen E-PL5 + VF-4 viewfinder. I thought renting ...
