  • Replied in Thanks
    I want to thank everyone for the help. Still, I am not decided, but at the moment with Panasonic retreating from stills oriented cameras I also think about changing the system. What keeps me most ...
  • Perhaps this can help. From the review of the 50-400 at Sony Alpha Blog.
  • Replied in Long range use
    For this the 60mm is great because of it's useful focus limiter. And of cause, as others habe pointed out, it is an outstanding macro lens. So it is great for insects of all sizes, other macro ...
  • I have the 12-100 and used the 40-150 and 12-45 pro lenses a lot, mostly on Panasonic bodies. I am interested in the O 75mm, but read that it's focus is rather slow and huntung with non PDAF  bodies. ...
  • I use the 12-100 since I bought it in 2019, almost exclu8sively. It is outstanding at 12-40mm and excellent from 70mm. Still, I keep thinking about getting the Sigma 56 or the Olympus 75  and the ...
  • check idealo.de
  • ... there are too few photos of Australian flowers on this forum. So more Proteacea, less roses, please! After a holiday in spring in WA I am a huge fan of the Australian flora. :-D Peter
  • Replied in Exactly
    Very obvious and therefore well known this happens with hummingbirds.
  • YES. Just returned from a trip with landscape, city, culture (churches etc). I also had the 1.7/20mm and the 3.5/7.5mm FE and used the 12-100 100% of the time. It's also good though not ...
  • Before you decide, you could try, if the latest software like ON1 Photo Raw 23 "tack sharp AI" live up to the promisses by downloading their trial version and use it to enhance sharpness of your ...
  • Replied in Great!
    Did you take them in the NP around Nerano? I specially love the firt picture! Peter
  • A nice photo of this beautiful place. I also love this peninsula. And you were lucky to see the milky way in this region! Some C&C: 1. I find the picture too dark. 2. The compostion with the cut ...
  • Replied in Foreign language
    Wikipedia: "Spanish is the second most spoken language in the US. There are over 41 million people aged five or older who speak Spanish at home, and the United States has the second largest ...
  • Replied in DOF
    Like you I've spent holidays with just one lens, a 40mm FF equivalent (the M43 20mm f/1.7) and brought home very satisfying results. And when I got a Ricoh Gr and used the M43 gear for macro and ...
  • Replied in 24 - 120 f/4
    There are outstanding portraits on 500px by Sergey Efremov, who seems too shoot exclusively with D700 and 24-120. Used they sell here for 400 - 500 EUR, probably less in the US.
  • Lovely picture and certainly a beautiful memory. First I thought, you must have a trick up your sleeve to get a picture like this sharp with the 20mm - whenever I tried candid photos like that ...
  • Replied in Olympus lenses
    indeed, BQ of the P 45-150 feels vastly superior. The other posts indicate to a lot of sample variation of the Panasonic lenses. So it might be a good idea to buy only if it is easy to return the lens.
  • Replied in GX7 and 8
    As fas as I know, neither the GX7 nor the GX7 drop to 10 bit. So the sensor probably is not the limiting factor.
  • Replied in Some reading
    https://sonyalpha.blog/2019/07/31/viltrox-85mm-f1-8-pfu-rmbh-stm/ Some people don't seem to like these reviews, and I have no experience with Sony yet. But I have seen other reviewers confirm these ...
  • Replied in Olympus lenses
    I had 2 samples and both were soft near infinity, so I got a Olympus plastic fantastic 40-150 for my Panasonic bodies. It is reasonably sharp except near MFD. But I hardly used it since I have the ...
