  • I got the G1 in 2011 with 14-45 and a G2 in 2012 for the familiy, which was a big step up re handling. I feel the same with my GX7, which was some upgrade from the G2 in IQ, but not as much as ...
  • Replied in Sugru is great
    ... and doesn't come off, if you don't want it to. I made a grip for the EM5.2 with it a year ago and it is still secure. But of course I am no prophet. Peter
  • I was just about to reply how much I loved v.1, but when reading this linked article, I remebered, thad I had quite bad loss of contrast when photographing into the sun. So there is an advantage ...
  • Replied in An Excuse.
    Gordon, I excuse myself for the word gibberish. It was not directed at the interview as a whole, but at the opening dialog. Let me explain my first post: (1) As stated, I only watched the first few ...
  • Replied in Goodness.
    I stopped watching after 5 min or sa, I couldne't stand their gibberish any more. So, yes, I have to wait for the written review. And I can wait, I will never buy the GH5, my interest is just academic.
  • Replied in Fully agree
    with everything you write. I am quite sure in 10 years time, there won't be any M43 any more. One of the last ones left might be Sony, because they produce the sensors. Peter
  • ... if the problems are due to sample varialtion and/or quality control problems. If, say, there are 15% lemons and the review site doesn't get one, you still might get a bad sample and might not ...
  • I know many find their 45-150 very good. The easy explanation is, that these cheap lenses have even more pronounced sample variation than zoom lenses have in general. See the article by Roger ...
  • I had two samples of the Panasonic 45-150. These lensesa certainly klook good, but IQ was unusable for landscapes at any FL. Simply not sharp enough, even without any cropping. They seemed to be ...
  • Replied in Suspicious...
    I hope the lens is outstanding, because I am looking for an excellent and not too heavy standard zoom lens. You call your post a review, so I expected more than expressions of joy about your new ...
  • Replied in D
    No problems in Germany. Peter
  • The FT lens is much sharper and has better contrast. Sad! - Peter
  • Thanks for the trouble of taking and posting the samples! My findings seem to differ from some others a bit. I compared the centre, and the left and right border in the middle, an aerea I find more ...
  • Replied in Lugs?
    If you use an Olympus body, from what I read, you'd want to check the strap lugs or better not use them at all. Peter
  • Replied in Suspicious...
    I followed the link to your gear reviews and read the first two parts of the "review". Nothing against some enthusiasm, but this is just too much to inspire confidence in the reader. I hope you ...
  • My EM5.2 is still ok. I own 5 Pana bodies. 1. G2 after 4 years: LCD doesn't work at all angles. Won't repair it any more. 2. GX7 after 10 months: the back dial didn't work any more. It was replaced ...
  • This sounds very much as if you needed a fast zoom lens: the Olympus 2,8/40-150 (EUR 1300) or the Panasonic 2,8/35-100 (EUR 900). Quite pricey, as you see. with F1,8 you need ISO 1250 and with F2,8 ...
  • Where were you walking? Peter
  • At photozone.de the Nikon 28-300 gets 1,5-2 stars out of 5 for optical quality. And as example photos of Ken Rockwell, he seems to sharpen them up to a very visible extent. So the Nikon lens is ...
  • Thanks for sharing, I am interested in this lens. However from your pictures, very little can be seen about the lens. The first ones are terrible, this is the digitital zoom, I think; the last one ...
