About me:

I'm a hobbyist, who's been learning digital since 2003. I love photography, and grew up on the imagery of Life photographers and people such as Cartier-Bresson and Ansel
Adams. Digital photography has re-awoken my childhood interest, and I'm having a ball with getting those 'once in a lifetime shots'. I may not be as good as my childhood heroes, but I'm having

  • Thanks Denj that did  the trick. It was driving me nuts!
  • Created question thread EM1 II question
    Of late, when I try  to review photos on the LCD it won’t zoom in. All I get is a reducing green frame indicating how many times it would zoom in if it was working! There may be a setting that’s ...
  • Created user review thread Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f0.95
    My Zhongi Mitakon 25mm f0.95 fell apart a few months ago. It was my favourite manual focus lens. I decided to buy the Voigtlander to replace it. The Voigtlander has not disappointed. Although a ...
  • Replied in today’s choice
    Now, I would lean towards the EM1 II. I think that it’s form factor is better (I’m not sure why). It’s also a bit more intuitive to use (admittedly that’s after more than a year or use). I imagine ...
  • Created user review thread Em1 II: now much improved
    I held back on reviewing my Olympus OMD Em1 II because I was underwhelmed by its focusing performance. Olympus indicated that there would be a major firmware upgrade coming, and they finally ...
  • I guess I am undecided about the two fields of view. I have  a Zhongi Mitakon 25mm f0.95, which, strangely, fell apart. I used it extensively. When I had Canon gear I had the 50L and the 85L and ...
  • Thanks for the detailed reply.
  • Created question thread 25 or 45mm f1.2?
    I’m considering purchasing a 25 or 45mm f1.2, but having trouble deciding which. The lens will largely be used for portraiture. Can anyone who has used either help me decide by talking about the ...
  • I own both cameras, and I don’t think there is significant difference. I, too, have poor motor control in my preferred hand, so I was a little spooked pre-ordering the G9.
  • Replied in Comparisons
    I think that if you live in the peculiar bubble of these forums that your sentiments are quite real. If I look at the real world of people who do not even know that forums like DPR exist  then ...
  • I use custom settings on my G9 and EM1II everyday. It’s great to have readymade settings for portraits, BIF and action. I also add jpegs to RAW in at least one custom setting, especially L ...
  • The EM1II is the best of the bunch, from my experience. A word of warning though; I sent my one in for warranty repairs on 4 February and I haven’t heard from them since, only to say that they had ...
  • Very cute. Good quality video.
  • Yes. I’m Finding that this combo does not work especially well. I use this combo daily, while I wait for my EM1II to come back from repairs. The focus is quite erratic and quite often hunts, even ...
  • Replied in 35 or 50?
    I have noticed that I use my Voigtlander 17.5mm more than any other lens for candid shots.
  • I have had similar issues with my G9. A few times the issue has arisen while chimping. I have noticed the camera sometimes struggles with switching between playback and the camera. The problem ...
  • I was thinking the same thing recently when I contemplated buying a Pen F. Its price has barely moved since it came out. My feeling is that Olympus can attract high prices on 'pretty' cameras, ...
  • Created discussion thread Olympus repair prices!
    A good news story. I recently caved in the body of my EM5II, during a hard fall, while travelling overseas. The battery housing was crushed in and the door broken. I had to prise the housing a fair ...
  • It had one or two knocks and recently the focus ring came off. My e.Zuiko and Voigtlander lenses have proved to be more robust. Up until this happened the Mitakon was  one of my favourite lenses.
  • Replied in Early G9 bug?
    Great! It took me about three hours of fiddling about to find out.
