  • Replied in Current trip
    Two months with a carry on weighing 20 lbs.  Not much room for camera gear, but I like a wide range of focal lengths. Collapsible zooms, a pancake and a fast prime. 9-18, 12-32, 40-100, 9mm ...
  • I have the 300/4, but I also have a FT 300/2.8 that I could use. This would be equivalent to a FF 600mm/f4. After getting the 300/4 I seldom use the faster lens. I prefer the size and IS of the...

  • Sure, Select Preset MF.  You can get this from the AF/[] button, or an assigned button. Press info. Focus on what you want to know the distance to.  AF or manual focus. The distance is displayed. G ...
  • I am using a M1 MkII, but I still have a M1.  The problem I have is switching back and forth between two modes.  Both cameras will return to the default setting in MySet (M1) or Custom Mode (M1.2). ...
  • Just to clear up a misscommunication;  I don't have a problem selecting a different configuration (M1.2) or mySet (M1) quickly or easily, my complaint is they go back to a reset state whenever I ...
  • Created discussion thread A few eagles (and my ongoing M1 gripe)
    About a half dozen bald eagles were hanging around a couple of weeks ago. Not great light, and I always find it difficult to get black and white birds exposed correctly. But Iit is nice being able ...

  • New build, and I didn't add a graphics card.  Using the integrated graphics on an i7 8700. SSD. I had a Radon graphics card on the old machine, but I had problem with Lightroom showing a blank ...
  • Replied in My thoughts
    I just finished a new build. Replacing an i7 860 from about 2009, trying to get a new machine that lasts another decade. This is my thoughts about what to put in a new machine. Most of the ...
  • I think Olympus started a lot of the argument by comparing 4/3 lenses to FF lenses without considering noise of DOF. Thanks.  A neighbor of a relative owns the Old Crow site and gave us a tour. It ...
  • Kinda my point.  For about 15 years on about a weekly basis someone will pit a premium Olympus lens against a consumer FF lens and say they are equivalent. Try a different approach.  If I were told ...
  • ....which is why I hate the entire equivalence argument. It almost always leads comparison of a super high grade lens in the smaller format to a high grade, or standard grade lens (or a ...
  • This is an earlier thread with a bit more information about how to use the range finder. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60076164 I have never used the preMF the way it was intended (one more ...
  • I have both, if I could only have one it would be the Panasonic. The 300 is sharper, and better IS on the OMD. I'm not sure I would notice the difference in sharpness unless I shot in controlled ...

  • Replied in a quick test
    I don't take that many long exposure UWA shots by hand, but thought I would check this out. Took a quick shot hand held 7mm shot @ .6 second of the grid. This is the full res shot. If you look at ...
