  • Yes, and I wonder why. I sold my Nikon gear in favor of OMD in 2013 and while I'm semi-retired, I have no regrets. Please note that several National Geographic photographers use OMD; perhaps they...

  • Yes, a disappointment. A great EVF is a must; if you can't see it you can't shoot it. I received a GX9 yesterday, put in the battery and looked through the viewfinder. Yick. Vastly inferior to the...

  • Replied in Great lens
    Definitely a nice all-in-one. I would like a faster version, but then there's the 12-100 at a much higher price and larger size. My copy has noticeable edge softness problems at the extremes, ...
  • I tote the 12-100. It's a sweet lens; yes, a little heavy by m43 standards, but it does most of what I need. I also squeeze the 9-18 into my bag, just in case I need the coverage. If I can I'll ...
  • Yes, the 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 produces fine images, from a tiny package. I would want the faster lens, though. Sometimes the extra stop can save your butt.
  • Thanks, Kszchopstix I've been following Mirrorless for a while, but missed this comparison. I respect their reviews. I also have been using the 12-100 and find it a fine lens, if a bit big for the ...
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic 12-60 f/2.8-4 on Olympus
    I've been using the Panny 12-60 f/3.5-5.6 on my Olympus bodies and like the range and size. I'm not liking the way the lens zoom ring performs, it seems sticky. I would like to consider the ...
  • Beyond mentioning the optional eye cup as necessary to supress glare when using the EVF, could the reviewer comment on the quality of the EVF, especially refresh-rate and image clarity? Thanks.

  • Replied in Not Adobe
    Agreed. Feature set parity would be impossible. I don't use Calculations or Apply Image and I work only in RGB; obviously, I don't need every tool. But, an Adobe replacement should provide the ...
  • Replied in Be Happy.
    The "Auto Tone" adjustment is located in the Develop module of Lightroom and the Basic Panel in Adobe Camera RAW. I think they share algorithms, which Adobe says use artificial intelligence (AI) ...
  • Replied in Not Adobe
    I find the current version of PS makes flawless panos from handheld captures. I have to tweak the composites with Transform-->Distort and -->Warp to straighten and fill the corners. I also might ...
  • Created discussion thread Not Adobe
    I know many of us here loathe the Adobe subscription license. I am a photographer and use Photoshop daily in my day job as a pre-press image specialist (which I balance with photo editing and ...
  • Save your money. Buy the latest technology; prints from a printer that old will not compare favorable with those produced by current printers.
  • What kind of photographer gives away work? You can't be a professional if you don't get paid. And what about releases? Both the platform and the photographer can be sued. I saw on picture on...

  • I know this camera is well respected and seems like a fine little solution for light travel and street. But, but, but, it's becoming obsolete. Waiting for an upgrade may be like waiting for Godot,...

  • I agree. But, given the consumer trend away from compacts in favor of mobile phone cameras, I think we may be waiting for Godot.

  • I have a 2013 MBP, i7 Quad, with 16GB RAM and LR runs fine, going back and forth to PS for layers. Files can be up to 500MB; I have no complaints on speed. Do you think there might be other...

  • MediaPro is still maintained by PhaseOne, though I would say barely. A year or so ago they released MedioPro SE to address issues with MacOS and closer integration with Capture1. I cannot speak ...
  • I've been using MediaPro since it was first introduced as iView in the early 2000s. It's pricey, but a great DAM, with many ways to catalog and sub-catalog collections. Unlike LR, you can open ...
  • Love, love, love my OMD EM1 Mk2 and the 12-100 f/4. Does just about everything I need. Also, my 9-18 wide-angle is small and light enough to go every where and be there when I need it. Add primes...
