About me:

Longtime OM-1 user, converted to digital with Fuji 6900z, moved on to the Oly E300, followed by EPL1, EP5 and now EM5ii with Panny 12-35/2.8 as my primary lens. Travel, landscape, architectural photos are my primary interest. My wife uses the Sony RX100iii.

  • Same reasoning applies to all MFT manufacturers.  They aren't charities, despite our desire for them to make every possible permutations of the product at a price point that we would like to pay.  ...
  • From a profit perspective, Oly has every reason to continue to make Pen F's, IF they continue to sell.  After all, the original development cost has already been spent, so every new body sold is ...
  • Replied in Overkill ...
    Nice shots, but did you really need 25 pics to prove your point or are you just showing off?  Glad my internet connection is high speed, and feeling sorry for those on a satellite connection.
  • I don't know about you, but in my case, once I begin to ask myself that question I've come to realize that I'm already part way down the slippery slope of GAS.  The rest of the journey is merely a ...
  • Well said.  But perhaps a bit too thoughtful for this crowd, especially since it doesn't seem to provide much opportunity for equivalence arguments.
  • I have purchased all of my "good" lenses while in Japan, typically saving $50-100 per lens.  As others have mentioned, Yodobashi and Bic are the big shops and they can be found in the major ...
  • Have to agree with Tuonov2 on this one.  The image is already baked once the shot is taken, complete with the DOF.  Cropping doesn't alter the observed focus area, it just cuts away the edges of ...
  • I've only got a couple of days experience with the new software.  Concur that it is much faster and more flexible than OV3 (using a laptop with I7 processor, 16GB ram, 1TB SSD and Intel HD ...
  • OK, you got me thinking.  By chance I was in Yodobashi Camera in Fukuoka and had opportunity to heft the EM1.2 and compare side by side with my EM5.2.  "Not too big, not too heavy" is a personal ...
  • mg_k said: Agreed, however the problem is you can't get a full-featured m43 body in smaller size. All best specced/featured camera is kept in the big heavy body. Also with my em10.2 + 12-40 combo I ...
  • Replied in take the 12-100
    The 12-40 is a great lens but I think you'll need/want something longer than 40 for street portraits and (if interested) some architectural detail high. 150 would be nice, but in my experience in ...
  • your gear list says you shoot Oly bodies.  most likely you have live boost turned on, which boosts the light level to the screen/evf so you can see the subject.  EM5II has a preview button - ...
  • Obviously it's the force of the impact that produced the desired result.  Save yourself some time next time around and just drop it about 4 feet onto a hard surface.
  • Everything you say is reasonable.  However, the national enthusiasm for the Olympics in Japan is easy to underestimate.  Still a country that looks at the 1964 Olympics as a significant turning ...
  • Created discussion thread MX1 focus on sports
    It's interesting to read all the various threads about MX1 won't do this (today, about birding), too big for that (landscapes while hiking), etc. etc.  Everybody and their brother has speculated ...
  • Well said! The perspective of age is often (and properly) overlooked, but none the less, it is remarkable to note the improvement in image quality over the last 50 years.  My old OM1 kodakcolor ...
  • The above replies cover just about everything.  I would add that the difference in size and weight, while noticeabe, is not all that significant.  I have both the EP5 and the EM5.2 and mostly use ...
  • Perhaps you could post a link to the photos from the EM1X that you have reviewed?  I'd be quite interested. Regarding the guestimated price,  as the saying goes "if you have to ask ... you can't ...
  • I'd politely suggest that your argument would be better stated if you substituted the word "choice" for "limitation".  To say that my choice to carry a smaller and lighter kit is my limitation is ...
  • I could be wrong, but I guess (at age 70) that my valuation of weight vs flexibility is a bit different from yours:-)
