  • All three are great cameras. I currently own the PenF and EM5.2. The Pen I use for more artsy prime-lens or compact superzoom walkabout stuff. The EM5.2 with ECG-2 grip clone for larger lens pro ...
  • You're shouting at the wind.  DPReview tends to attract pedants, so you'll pretty much always have "that guy" chiming in.  It's been that way throughout the fifteen years I've been on this forum. I ...
  • Sounds like you have clear thoughts for how the EM1.2 would benefit your craft. The only real question then is whether the cost is worth the benefit, and you're the only one who can answer that ...
  • Your decision points are the following: (1) Upgrade or don’t upgrade? – Depends on your needs; focus on what things you want/need to do that you can’t do with the EM1.1 but will be able to do with the ...
  • Yes, good clarification.  The caveat is whether or not they give you as much in trade in for something with value than you can get elsewhere such as Fred Miranda, ebay, or even KEH.  Less of a ...
  • Possibly, but I'd also suggest you rent or borrow before making a major financial commitment.  It's been a while, but as I remember the light quality was also a big issue.  While our eyes adapt ...
  • Yep, one coupon per item purchased.  So you can't trade in four things to get an $800 discount on one item purchased.  Yeah, they thought of that.  :) Still, in my world a $200 discount per item ...
  • As noted above, Buzz is a Yellow Jacket and not really a bee.  :) That part aside, as you note it basically sucks shooting anything action related inside a school gym. In terms of bumping  the ...
  • Yes.  Although I skipped the 40D, I'd gone from 20D to 50D and used that for a couple years as well.  Current m4/3 bodies are *still* going to be better in general. Of course if you pick a body ...
  • This is DPreview.  Stating "puppies are cute" or "ice cream tastes good" will get you a 200 post heated argument.
  • My point was to illustrate that gray market options exist for both choices.  Your post presented a rather one-sided view, and neglected to make clear the lens status. I've had good success with ...
  • Yes I understand, my point was more for other readers than for you specifically.  I trust you are able to shop for the lowest available pricing for your specific circumstance. I think the question ...
  • For full disclosure though, you're suggesting a gray-market import lens warranted by the ebay seller "6ave" with a description stating "This lens does NOT come in the original retail packaging" If ...
  • As I recall the CA issue wasn't really related to implementing lens corrections/profiles as it was a difference in UV filter cutoffs and the CA correction info supplied by the lens. See here ...
  • DxO's lens testing has nothing to do with whether or not your own one of their software packages.
  • No.  As a former 20D owner I can assure you that your assumption is incorrect. As for a suggested body, I'd recommend you start by figuring out exactly how you want to use the camera.  Is weather ...
  • I've tried messing with IR filters on a few occasions and was never pleased with the results. Eventually I bit the bullet, bought a refurbished E-PM2 body and sent it in to image-laboratory for a ...
  • Depends on how much power you're using when in operation. Also depends on the powerbank. A conventional 2.4A 5V USBA port can supply 12 watts (for comparison the included Apple charger is 29W). I ...
  • See my prior post here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58165052 Lightroom and Affinity Photo, no Photoshop though. That should be easily fixable. check out www.macsales.com if you're in the ...
