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.

    Expensive this year means just pricey next year means affordable the year after.  Processing power, which is largely independent of camera technology, moves on.  I don't really need the ...
  • Replied in Hi res
    The reality, not just the concept, is not only fascinating but also fully formed at current FPS capability.  Yes, I suppose you'd like to have it hand-held at whatever (you specify some FPS) rate ...
  • Well thought out.  Yes, too much money if you apply rational thought.  That said, who's really rational when it comes to these purchases? Can't wait to see what you really do ...
  • Replied in Too big....
    Yeah - the size of a small house, and I don't need another house.
  • Replied in Never
    I've never used my cell to take pictures. However, I've often been asked by others to take their picture using their cellphone.  I'm guessing that because I'm carrying a "serious" camera they ...
  • I chose my current gear because the size, features, performance and price meets my needs.  New gear being announced certainly stokes my GAS, but it doesn't really change the initial equation - the ...
  • Japanese firms tend to take the long view.  Forget about FF and MF, they're going after large telescope business.  8", 10", 12" equivalent.  You saw it her first.
  • As the saying goes ... "If you have to ask, it's not you."
  • Excellent point but, unfortunately, quite a few people don't know how to read punctuation.  Just like quite a few don't really know a good photo when they see it, especially if they're ...
  • Nice colors in that shot.  At 30 seconds exposure you're getting star trails, even with that wide a lens.
  • As light bender says, examples please.  Focus problems could also be caused by camera settings, so that info is also important.
  • Created discussion thread eyecup for e-m5ii
    Like many others, I finally managed to lose the eyecup on my e-m5ii.  I see on Amazon, B&H, etc. the genuine replacement for around $15 and then a couple of 3rd party knockoffs for $7-8.  Anyone ...
  • A good selection, in my opinion.  The 12-40 will cover the impressive landscapes and a wide range of lighting conditions.  The 140 end of the 14-140 will cover any wildlife opportunities (but if ...
  • Taking over as household treasurer is a very good idea - just 47 years too late!
  • 1.  Develop GAS for a new lens (multiple reasons, too numerous to detail) 2.  Drop hints with lovely partner and household Treasurer to see if I can buy it outright.  If approved, go for it!  Old ...
  • Replied in Do it manually
    Totally agree that multiple shots/software stitching is very easy and reliable.  If your software is a little less sophisticated than CS5+ (I use PSE 13) then you might want to take extra care with: ...
  • It seems to me you must have a lemon - although I think the LCD falling off is likely from a poor re-assembly by the repair shop.  I would look for a replacement and/or refund from the shop you ...
  • Yes, would definitely buy it again.  The EP5 was my travel camera for quite a long time, but I found the Panny 2.8 zooms to be just a little too big for that body.  The EM5.2 has just enough of a ...
  • It comes with a pouch, but the pouch only has padding at the bottom.  If I didn't have padded dividers in my camera bag, I'd consider a better pouch.
  • I always keep my gear small and light - what goes on the plane can also go on my back for a full day of touring, if needed.  Using my Lowepro Slingshot 150AW I pack: In the lower compartment - ...
