  • Replied in G9 vs EM1.2?
    Personal taste. I found it difficult to work with Olympus menus in the field. It's a bit like computer software though, if you are using it everyday for everything you can master it...as a weekend ...
  • While awaiting the arrival of a new Panasonic G9 I am wondering if the "depth to defocus" will work on the older versions of the  f2.8 12-35 and 35-100. Is there a way to do a update on these lenses?
  • Replied in G9 vs EM1.2?
    I finally gave up on the Olympus EM-1 Mk2. The menus and interface were just too confusing and unmanageable - they had become incrementally worse than on the Mk1. I found myself using the reset ...
  • I haven't decided to bring my MFT kit yet...may go with my Sony a7Rii and a f4 24-105...but if I do bring the MFT kit: Panasonic 8-18 Panasonic 12-35 or 12-32 ?Panasonic 35-100 f2.8 Haven't used ...
  • Replied in ...but
    ...wait until you try the GX85 with the Panasonic 20 mm. Actually pocketable, fun camera to shoot with, excellent features.  I've actually used it with the Panasonic f2.8 35-100 and the Pan/Leica ...
  • I have the Panasonic 12-35 and had the Olympus 12-40 ( aka "mini-beast"). I always seemed to use the Panasonic even on my OM-D EM-1 Mk2. It was lighter and more compact. Both lenses performed very ...
  • Thanks Jeff! I was curious to see if Sigma was going to release any of the ART series in a native E mount. I'll wait until February to see what's offered. For now I'm pursuing the Sony 24-105 f4 to ...
  • Created discussion thread Adapters and Sigma Art
    Brand new to this forum. Just got a Sony a7Rii in addition to MFT gear. Amazed that the body is essentially the same size and weight as the OM-D EM-1 mkii and probably smaller than the Panasonic ...
  • Replied in 12-40 v 12-100
    I really didn't love the Oly 12-40. Aside from the rumors (?truths) of the lens breaking off at the mount, it was really bulky compared to the Pany 12-35- which I kept. I did get a 12-100 and use ...
  • Replied in SOLD THE 12-40
    I own a Panasonic 12-35 f2.8. I got a 12-40 Olympus as part of a deal with a new Olympus body. I found the Oly12-40 to be a bit clunky compared to the Panasonic. There were rumors of the 12-40 ...
  • I have tried to find the "right" birding lense for MFT. Where I frequent for birding I need reach. I've used the Oly 75-300- not bad, but a bit slow and not so sharp at the long end where I need ...
  • A few thoughts. 1. The f1.4 25 mm Pansonic/Leica was a great lens...but expensive, even used. Doesn't answer your question though...pricey 2. I bought the Panasonic 25 f1.7...happy with the photos, ...
  • Not advice for everyone! A little practice and my rig was set up 90 minutes before totality. My friends and I were able to share the eclipse on the rotatable screen of my OM-D EM-1 MkII. During...

  • I'm going out west next week with my walk around combo as an Oly 12-100 and a Panleica 8-18. I don't have a wide prime and I don't want to be at Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park and the Devil's ...
  • Whatever...To each his own. Buying legacy lenses like the SW 50-200 wasn't so inexpensive! I feel sorry that you are missing the joy of the  Oly12-100 (sorry that was a bit snarky!)
  • Ditto. Amen! Foolish post, why didn't he just return it for another copy? I have a 75-300 also...good lens but not in the same league as the Pany 100-400.
  • Replied in ...but...
    I stopped using legacy lenses...Macro f3.5 and SWD 50-200...they were bulkier and heavier than the M.Zuikos, which was the reason I moved to MFT....so I don't have this problem. I share the ...
  • Had the Oly 12-40 - too big, too heavy, images not as "nice" as Pany 12-35 (microcontrast or whatever). The Pany 12-35 is my most used lens- compact, sharp, contrasty-- didn't miss the Oly 12-40 ...
  • I've had both cameras- actually still have the GX85. The OM-D EM10 is getting long in the tooth. The GX85 better stabalization and ergonomics. I do not have a problem with EVF.  The PEN-F is ...
  • ~30 years-Tamron, Nikon, Canon,Sony, Olympus,Sigma, other Panasonic- least creepy!
