  • The PL 50-200 f2.8-4 is 132mm long and weighs 655g. One might hope for a somewhat lighter Olympus, but that gives a ballpark. (Nice lens, the PL) Interestingly, the Olympus roadmap shows a 40-150mm ...
  • As a "photographer", I’d really like to have a modern equivalent of projected slides, with very large image size. Video projectors aren’t available at high res, also make demands both for mounting ...
  • It delivers - small, swift, capable and with a gazillion sometimes useful tricks (HDR, focus stacking, HR, Pro Cap...) up its sleeve. And I enjoy the ergonomics - the shutter feel, and yes, the ...
  • Created discussion thread Towerjazz tidbit
    Towerjazz described their development of global shutter pixel designs, and when they talked about their 4th gen (current), they mentioned that they worked on bringing the size down from 2.5 to ...
  • LOL! Well, inexpensive is a relative term I guess. But lenses like the Samyang AF 75f1.8, 45f1.8 and 24f2.8, would make for a fantastic system with the A7r4 - a modern version of my 28/45/90mm ...
  • As others have indicated, and I agree, with the print size your targeting, m43 is easily sufficient provided you don’t crop too heavily. And your lens choice should minimize that need as the zoom ...
  • True. Lenses in m43 are undersampled by the low resolution sensors, and it’s a bit mystifying - having higher resolution sensors would make a better case for the higher end/higher margin optics ...
  • Yup, Sony being open with their mount was the right move. There is a quickly growing number of really nice lenses for FE, and the majority of the small, good, inexpensive lenses come from third ...
  • Replied in No.
    I also have both, and I would never dream of replacing them with a 45mm lens that weighs as much as both of them together. (I might add the 45mm f1.2, but that’s another story.) The 45mmf1.8  is a ...
  • It seems focus was indeed an issue. This jives better with my experience, you have inspired me to reproduce your tests, and throw HR into the mix!
  • Lighter weight and smaller dimensions is, for most m43 shooters, THE reason to be invested in the system at all. Only extreme wildlife photographers, where pixeldensity (reach) is important really ...
  • At least with SLR:s I discover that I left the lens cap on. "Err, totally meant to do that, just checking my grip." :-) I’m glad you like the lens, it brings a lot to the table with its range, ...
  • Replied in Next lens
    For food photography, I’d say you don’t need 1:1 m43 closeup capability. That’s only a 17x13mm area, and frankly, I can’t see where you’d need that for the subject matter. The 12-40 f2.8 already ...
  • Replied in 41 mp on GH6?
    True. I think it would have sold better still with Sonys 8k capable sensors though. I bought the E-M5mkiii, but kind of regret settling for that sensor again. Most of the rest of the camera is ...
  • The only category doing worse in e-commerce was travel luggage. Which implies that travel is a very strong motivator for camera sales, and travel photography being a strength of m43 may make those ...
  • On the 12MP sensor, you can’t see the small effects of the Olympus 75mm lens on total system mtf at all unless you’re at f2.8 or wider. And in the case of the 17mm f1.2 lens, the mtf is glued to ...
  • Or browse the web, or do my banking, or check messages, or while away time with games, or....
    Smart phones offer a package deal. The fact that the can do photography aided by a plethora of software...

  • Sony has parts for order. And Sharp has had access to 8k m43 sensors for a long time now, they just haven’t brought their product to market. I have my own theory as to why Olympus doesn’t introduce ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    Thanks for an extremely interesting and thorough post!
  • My current smartphone is on its fifth year. It’s an iPhone and still runs the current OS, but I’ll probably replace it this year. People don’t necessarily upgrade from last years super phone, it...
