  • I apologize for perhaps not being as tactful as I could have been in my reply. My intent was not to insult the OP, but to let him know that his request was a bit daunting. To the OP: You should ...
  • Here are a few of my favorites: Where the 12mm shines is in color rendition, contrast/microcontrast, and simply what it does with light. Corners, no, not perfect. But the rest of what it does can ...
  • Yes a BOOK on the lenses. Not a thread on a BB. And, as I will annotate below, the post you like has a completely different take on lenses than I do. So, who is correct? The only way to figure ...
  • This is like asking for a comparison of all similar dishes at several different restaurants that are priced at varying levels and served at different times of day. I can see asking for a ...
  • Then pick the one that feels best in hand and has the UI that works best for you.  You won't go wrong with either brand. I have used assorted M43 bodies since 2011, with a brief (2 year) foray into ...
  • The first one below, of the snow falling at a local marsh, was one of the very first images I took after getting my very first M43, an EPL1. I downloaded the images when I got home, and this one ...
  • I think it's a couple of things:  First, O&P have been releasing much more carefully thought out bodies of late (on a much slower time schedule, too), so I don't think there is either the kind of ...
  • The black and white conversion program alone is worth it (Silver EFex Pro).  It's better than any in-camera conversion program that I have used, and has massive flexibility.  The other programs in ...
  • Have not tried it yet, actually, but I wanted the new version for future OS compatibility and also updates and bug corrections. -J
  • Created discussion thread Dxo Nik collection half price sale
    Been waiting for this sale since DXO bought and updated the Nik collection software earlier this year.  It's on special for half price today, for $34.99. Silver EFX Pro alone  is worth that! -J
  • Yes, of course.  I had a foray into FF a few years ago and came back to M43 as my main camera system.  Tele and macro are uncomfortably large on FF, and that's the bulk of my shooting.  However, ...
  • I reached my "good enough" level in M43 with the GX8. I've had no desire to even look at any of the newer models, as whatever improvements they have had over the output of the GX8 are subtle ...
  • There's always Goodwill....
  • Commented on photo Sweetiesm in jalywol's photo gallery

    A long-haired Chihuahua. She is a particularly smart little dog, and fortunately also a very nice-tempered one.

  • Does your G85 produce output that you find meets your needs? Do you find using it to be an enjoyable experience? If yes, then Voila! You have the right camera for your purposes. If no, then figure ...
  • Replied in Lots of options,
    I was never a great fan of the 14-42mm 2nd generation Oly kit lens. The first gen had better optics, IMO, although it did have that nasty wobble when extended, that amplified shutter shock... If ...
  • Replied in No
    I initially bought M43 for the size. I wanted a smaller "go-with" camera to complement my Nikon D90 system at the time. After 9 months with M43, the D90 got sold. Was M43 as good? No. Was it "good ...
  • This is what I do, also. I wear a pair of fingerless magic gloves (cycling gloves would work too, but magic gloves are cheap and work well) and then over them a pair of Thinsulate gloves (or ...
  • Kind of a long time after it was posted to put up an answer to it? -J
  • Rent or borrow the Nikon system you are considering. Take both systems to an air show and shoot comparable subjects. Go home, download, and compare. You will either notice a difference, and have a ...
