  • He says on a gear jockey review site... Just shot down your spy plane with my superior AF.
  • From the Reviews Editor: ” Unfortunately, its core capabilities are looking outgunned in today’s market, especially given fierce competition at this price point from cameras with larger sensors. It ...
  • If you do video or foul weather shooting, the Olympus. If you want the best files for still photos, the Canon.
  • In cinema capture medium stops are calculated with the doubling of diagonal = 1 stop. So 43 is always 2 stops less than 35mm. You just go up and down the scale depending on the format.
  • From the DPR Reviews Editor: ”Unfortunately, its core capabilities are looking outgunned in today’s market, especially given fierce competition at this price point from cameras with larger sensors. ...
  • You can’t market over an inferior sensor. From Ming Thein, MFT user and former Olympus rep: ”A Z6 or Z7 will give you easily three to four stops (or more) wider shooting envelope, and pack to ...
  • https://www.nikonusa.com/en/learn-and-explore/a/tips-and-techniques/understanding-animal-detection-af.html YouTube is your friend. https://petapixel.com/2020/07/21/wildlife-photographer-blown-away- ...
  • Excellent camera at an awful price compare to the FF competition. They can’t keep wrapping lots of marginal tech around the inferior sensor and still try and charge what they do. This is why...

  • Because the Z5 is half the price and size, with better AF anyway, and FF DR, high ISO, etc. Birds are animals. I think you’re confused with mammals. The new Canon and Nikon animal AF does birds and ...
  • It has to outperform the Nikon Z5, which has animal and animal eyeAF, looking amazing on tests so far. They are even putting it in the Z50. That’s FF and APS-C *already* doing it at a fraction of ...
  • If Olympus or NewCo came out with a 16MP, dual native ISO sensor, with 2/3 of a stop better high-ISO than the current 20MP sensor, shooting video in ProRes and HEIF, with an option to constant ...
  • And if you’d priced a Z5 instead of Z6, the FF package would have been between $500 and $700 less expensive, with much superior AF. Olymlus is competitive if they get their pricing in line with ...
  • At that 15mm focal length, the camera is in the realm of smartphone competition, which is exactly the problem Olympus identified in the JIP Memorandum. The market for a dedicated prime shooter ...
  • No manufacturer does that kind of breakdown. The Nikkei interview of the Canon CEO was clear that below ¥110k per unit they are not making returns. Canon, Nikon and Sony all said the opposite. ...
  • Replied in Quick Look
    I don’t own but tried it out for an hour. It is a large, heavy lens, but optically very good...no, excellent. The design is largely for video as it doesn’t focus breathe when racking. It’s for ...
  • They also can’t compete on $1000 cameras at EM5 size because that market’s been gutted by smartphones and the price point loses money. As with all other brands they must have a suite of far higher ...
  • I’m sticking with 90% because it’s sunny outside.
  • According to CIPA true telephoto (over 100mm) sales account for 27% of all glass sold. The caveat is that includes a lot of kit glass, like the ubiquitous 2-lens Christmas special package of a ...
  • A market contraction of 90% doesn’t make sense. Across all brands no less. An entire, premium, flagship, strategic Japanese industry humbled by smartphones. They’ve all been off on estimates, ...
  • 2-stops is HUGE. Only on an MFT forum would anyone argue it’s not. Good Lord! Olympus lens prices are reasonable with high IQ and excellent designs. Compared to FF they are actually priced ...
