  • I'd probably give the overall edge to Olympus, at least at the "pro" end. But I'm glad we have access to both, I have more Panasonic gear than Olympus, and ultimately it often boils down to what ...
  • I think it would depend more on software than monitor. The integrated gpu on the mini will be fine for everyday use, but if you use software that uses the gpu extensively you may have issues. I ...
  • There's simply not another m43 body that tempts me right now. The E-M1iii looks like a great body and it brings a few tricks to the table the G9 doesn't offer. But it certainly doesn't offer ...
  • It's a heck of a camera. I've certainly not used a huge range of bodies, but the G9 has the best ergonomics (I know, a subjective personal opinion) and feature set of any body I've used. At ...
  • One of the things that always bothers me about these kinds of things (and I don't know what the folks doing the testing actually do) is that very often different lenses are being used. And the ...
  • I've had copies of the 17 f/1.8 and PL15. The Olympus was capable of making very nice images but as a prime it was not a standout in terms of resolution. My copy of the pL15 is distinctly better ...
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    Fullly agree. I definitely think the G9 offers more value. It still feels like a very current camera to me. The Olympus does a few things the G9 doesn't, and vice versa. And while larger than I ...
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    I think it's a great camera and at the current prices a terrific value. But I don't see that it buys you much of anything compared to the E-M1iii. The interface between the two cameras is very ...
  • Have you given any consideration to the base 16"? Perhaps it's just too big and heavy for your needs but the base 16" comes with a 6-core i7 with higher base and burst clock speed than the 4-core ...
  • I have the Olympus version of the Panasonic strobe. Works well on camera. The infrared off camera triggering is inconsistent and requires pretty careful placement. And as someone else mentioned ...
  • I'd echo this. All comes down to focal length, really. The 30 doesn't give much working distance. It's easy to block light and cast unwanted shadows when working really close to subjects. More ...
  • I'm in the US and the pricing structure is different. I believe the screen on the Pro has a larger color gamut than the Air. Specifications also say it's brighter. They are virtually the same ...
  • The i7 version has to be a 2017 model or earlier. Is the i5 version a 2019 or an earlier version. The i5 in the 2019 is a 6 core cpu and it's much faster than than the earlier 4 core i5s that were ...
  • As suggested, if you're buying a 27" iMac the ram is user upgradeable and it's an easy upgrade. Even someone as klutzy as I am didn't have any difficulty. The integrated video card in your ...
  • Replied in Macbook
    Yep. I didn't think about both the Macbook Air and Pro as having 13" screens. It's the current Macbook Pro that still has the butterfly keyboard. The 2020 Macbook Air has the replacement keyboard ...
  • Replied in Macbook
    Yes, almost all of the reviewers seem to like the new keyboard much, much better than the butterfly keyboard that was widely disliked. I would expect the butterfly keyboard will be replaced on the ...
  • Replied in Macbook
    Lots of reviews on the new Macbook Air on Youtube. Lots of concerns about heating and throttling when pushed. They don't technically throttle since they don't drop below the base speed, but they ...
  • Replied in Z6 and GX9..
    2nd one in the pair looks under exposed in most of the comparisons. Comparing images is so dependent on how they are processed. Out of camera jpegs are processed, they just may be processed ...
  • I really like mine. I recognize that it has it's limitations but as a travel, street, everyday companion type of camera it's in it's sweet spot.
  • I did as well. Just very stiff. Fortunately, it still has two control dials and they can be configured as desired.
