  • It is not a bad lens, though it isn't in the same league as the Panasonic lens. Doesn't cost as much either. You can get pretty sharp results from it in the center; a bit less at the edges, but ...
  • I bought a grey market Pana-Leica 212-60mm and it is the one that sits on my Pen F continuously. I still have my Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8, though I may be interested in the 8-18mm Pana-Leica and ...
  • I have the eye sensor on, but usually keep the screen pointed inwards and use the EVF most of the time.
  • Me too, though I am still annoyed that I had to reset all my old settings again after the update. You would think they could make an update that won't require all that setup work again...<sigh>
  • Don't know about the Sony A9, but I can talk about the A7ii (regular, not R), as I traded it in on an E-P5 and am now on a Pen F. Much nicer camera to use, less of a headache to carry and the ...
  • I did find the $790 price a reason to jump, but that's becase it suits my style better. Outdoors I like the extra reach, especially when I am out on my motorcycle and need to limit my kit a bit. I ...
  • I can see them improving their 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 zoom, to perhaps an f4-5.6, adding in the dual IS. They haven't changed the Mark II version of the lens yet and that would seem to be something ...
  • I would think that the extra 20mm reach is worth the slightly higher aperture. I feel this is especially true with the newer m43 bodies, such as my Pen F, which is actually pretty good even at ISO ...
  • Haven't tried the  12-100 Olympus, but I just got the PL 12-60 and am very happy with it. As sharp as my 12-35 mk1, while as light as it and with a longer reach. Looked at the12-100, but it is ...
  • Replied in PEN-F Bag
    That's the newer version of what I use, but it sized about the same and has similar features. Nice touch is the leather use, as mine is lacking that. Quality is top notch and it is a perfect bag ...
  • Replied in PEN-F Bag
    Check out the National Geographic small bag. I keep my Pen F with my Pana/Leica 12-60mm (just got it and I love it), as well as my Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8, plus extra batteries, SD cards and even ...
  • Not the Javits Center. I went to the motorcycle show there in December. Granted, the motorcycle show is never as big as the auto show, but it is held in the same hall and the lighting isn't the ...
  • As long as they aren't going too fast, you should be fine. I shot some motorcycles going up hill at a ski area in the snow (don't ask, but it was fun watching) and I was able to get some good ...
  • I did sell my Sony A7ii and my Sony Zeiss 24-70mm f4 zoom and the excellent 55mm f1.8 prime. Didn't get the Pen F immediately, as it wasn't out, but did get an E-P5 and now have a Pen F, with a ...
  • Yes, and it is still a pretty good camera. I still have mine, though I have relegated it to a backup body to my Pen F. Agreed, the Pen F isn't a replacement for the E-P5, but it is a quite capable ...
  • I had the Panasonic 20mm and now have the Olympus 17 f1.8. It is a great little lens, almost perfect for street shooting on my Pen F. It is sharp enough except for real pixel peepers, focus is ...
  • I shoot RAW and the high res mode is available. It is typically in one of the odd menu selections, though the exact one escapes me now. I have used it a few times. Seems more of a gimmick than of ...
  • Yes, a lot of differences. The Pen F has the newer 20mp sensor, has IBIS which is almost magical and has the latest and greatest processor, making it a  lot more responsive. I went from a E-P5, ...
  • Have you looked at Olympus Pen F for m4/3? It also has IBIS (and on my Pen F it is almost magical; I can hand hold at really slow shutter speeds, which is amazing due to my hand tremors), can take ...
  • As many have said, you can't go wrong with either the Panasonic 12-35 or the Olympus 12-40. I found a demo Panasonic 12-35mm and purchased it at a good price, so that's why I have that. Was so ...
