  • My pleasure! Indeed, in terms of focusing speed, there is no comparison between the two. The Sigma focuses as fast as the 40-150 Pro or 300mm Pro (slightly noisier). This is true at least on my ...
  • Please ignore the incredibly shoddy and hurried editing. Wanted to capture birds in suburban settings - used the 20mm, Minolta 28mm (both with manual focus) and Sigma 56mm. Loved the results from ...
  • Replied in wrong
    Going by the upvotes that Guy and you received, I'm guessing that forum members aren't particularly fond of sarcasm. A couple of years ago, I made an April Fool's post saying that I was quitting ...
  • Like many wildlife photographers, I used to own a teleprime and a medium-reach telezoom lens. In my case, the zoom lens was the Olympus 50-200 SWD, which I replaced with the more expensive PL ...
  • Did you know that the Olympus 12-100mm f4 Pro does the same job as a 24-200mm f8 lens on full frame? Sony does not have an f8 lens, but they do have the excellent 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 lens. It has ...
  • This is sensible advice. Another lens that no one has mentioned yet is the Lumix 12-60mm. Versatile and cheap. We're all talking about the 12-45, 12-40, 12-100 but we do not know what OP's ...
  • Something that hasn't been mentioned on this thread so far is macro performance. This might not be important to you, but if you do not plan on shooting up-close, you perhaps do not need an AF lens ...
  • I agree with you, 100%. Some years ago, I sold my PL 100-400 chasing after all-important sharpness and faster AF (to be fair, my copy wasn't the sharpest) and purchased my 300mm Pro. I have no ...
  • Looks like we have similar priorities - I am in the PNW as well and empathize with the challenges you'll be facing thanks to rain and bad light. :-) That would be easy to do with even budget ...
  • OM Workspace finds the sharpest photos in a burst, but I do not trust or use that feature. One reason being that sharpness is only relevant in some cases and wing position, composition, the ...
  • No offense but if DSLR quality is "blowing you away", you probably aren't using your gear correctly.
  • Again, my pleasure! I hope you have many more special experiences in my country. :-) To clarify, when resorts provide a staff naturalist, they still use government-authorized vehicles, drivers and ...
  • Ugh! This is why I never share my vehicle with other tourists. There are two easy ways to ensure this: one would be to use a tour operator who specializes in wildlife safaris. They take care of ...
  • Hi Gursharan, great question. Something to keep in mind is that the DCR 250 can also be used on the Olympus 60mm (or any other lens). The attachment clip that comes with it won't fit the 60mm, but ...
  • First off, seeing a thread about tigers makes me happier than you can imagine. I have only been to Ranthambore once (growing up in central India, I had plenty of tiger habitat an hour's drive ...
  • You should try eBay. Have you considered that MFT cameras are widely available because they're affordable? An OM-1 costs $2200 and can do nearly everything that a $6500 A1 or $5500 Z9 can and a lot...

  • You're looking at it the wrong way. On older OM-Ds, I had to review each image in a burst at 100% to see which ones missed critical focus. Which ones have a bird's beak sharp instead of the eyes, ...
  • Not every high-end m43 lens is large and heavy either. Examples: Olympus 12-45mm f4, 20mm f1.4, 40-150mm f4, 8-25mm f4, Panasonic Leica 12-35mm f2.8, 9mm f1.7, 35-100mm f2.8. All compact,...

  • Mine has finally shipped today. Ordered from Roberts and I had to call them to 'nudge' them to ship it. You might need to make a few calls, including to OMDS. Good luck! :-(
