  • If dpreview didn’t have the forum activity notifications I wouldn’t have noticed anyone replied to this thread. It flew off the front page pretty quickly. After using the EM1 mkii for a couple of ...
  • I tried it with the Panasonic 15mm.  Tried high res mode, and checked the different channels.  I couldn't duplicate your problem.  It was just a quick test, but it sounds like it is pretty obvious ...
  • On the M1 mark II, the 12-40 is compatible with pro capture and focus stacking. I have the 12-40, like the PanaLeica lenses that I have, and would prefer the extra focal length over the slightly ...
  • Yesterday I had a couple of other telephotos out.  I was using OI.Share as a remote, and didn't get high res shots.  Just a quick test, but the SHG primes look a lot better.  I'm not sure what ...
  • Replied in The 100-400
    I didn't mean to take anything away from the Panasonic lens.  I have been getting really good results from mine. With the E1 mk II it is a great package for wildlife, but if you look closely it is ...
  • I thought about trying high res mode on a very accommodating owl, but not really many opportunities to use high res with the 300. I don't have the 300mm F4, but I here is a quick comparison ...
  • Micro four thirds has a wider selection of lenses. There are lower cost options that are quite good, so the premium lenses don't have to try and cover more cost-conscious customer.  The micro four ...
  • I use it all the time (I felt like I had to, I've been asking for inbody AF for a decade). I have all three limits set, but usually I set one for the current conditions and just use that. I have AF ...
  • I am using a Kirk generic point and shoot plate (PZ-130).  It is a pretty good fit, but the anti-rotation is mostly from the cork base. The custom plates have the channel the wrong way.  When I use ...
  • Olympus has a website (four-thirds.org) with information on both Olympus and Panasonic, and some third party lenses.  four-thirds.org.   It doesn't work with some browsers, but this is a
  • Everything is a compromise, but this lens is a great fit for how I use it.  Light enough to take on short backpacks, small enough to take in a kayak.  Plenty sharp enough, and the AF works really ...
  • Done that a few times, but I'm starting to learn. Canon puts out a 140 page manual on how to use their AF system. We get a vague line "Sets the tracking sensitivity for C-AF" for more info go to ...
  • Hi Peter, These were all shot with C-AF with a single point.  The immature eagle was all points. I am not using tracking. Experimenting with the settings. The ones I have settled on (for now), AF ...
  • Trying to get a handle on the M1 mark II for birds in flight. So far it has been much easier for BIF's.  The AF is better, and it is easier to track.  Using the in body focus limit and the AF ...
  • Sometimes you just have to yield: Black canyon/Umtanum Ridge - never again after mothers day. I wouldn't want to have to yield to a sheep on a trail in the Grand Canyon.  I don't even like being ...
  • The Barred Owl was a bonus.  I was hiking back from not getting an Eagle shot I wanted (it decide to fly by when there wasn't enough light) and was about 3 feet from the Owl before I noticed it.  ...
  • Great performance by the electronic shutter.  If I shot that with my gm5 the wings would be bent in all kinds of strange ways.
  • I really like this part of the Olympics.  Most hikes in the Olympics are either a straight up 4000 feet, or a long slog up a valley.  As I recall getting to Mt. Cameron was both.
  • Replied in abouts goats
    I didn't mean to hijack this thread. But every now and then you see a really massive goat. Although they are potentially dangerous, all the ones I've been around are pretty docile and usually easy ...
  • Replied in abouts goats
    The goats are attracted to salt - and are getting way to comfortable around people.  Almost all of these were chased off, one of the ones in Glacier was using the trial, we climbed up a bit to let ...
