  • 2 Thoughts 1. Fuji E2: fixed LCD, no IS, 16MP with resolution problems in green colors. For the 24MP sensor would be a must. The Fuji IQ, specially OOC jpg, is probably better than M43. 2. The ...
  • What is your problem with your current bodies? If I knew that, I could try to make a recommendation. If you are just after the latest gear, you don't have to ask. Peter
  • Thank you for the link! I only looked at the 12-100, I am not interested in the 25mm lens. I don't know whether it was the light (drab day, slow lens), but Big Ga's comment taken literally about ...
  • Replied in Sigma lenses
    I know, bacause I had one, when I used my old G2; on this body the AF kept hunting so much, it was a nuisance to use. This might have changed with more modern bodies, however; I miss it sometimes, ...
  • Replied in Agree
    .. and as Atrotripper writes, the 12-40 is heavy for me as well - I use it 1-2 hrs, but I don't want to carry it days on end. Yes, F4 is good for studio (? I never do this) and good weather - even ...
  • This thread is about "bokehlicious" - so I gave some examples, why I don't wonder some people want larger sensors - including myself, until I see the weight. ;) Hmmmm. BTW what am I drinking? Ah, I ...
  • Replied in First lenses
    Fully agree. What I mean is, in dark conditions a fast lens might be able to freeze motion or keeps ISO down, so 1,5-2 extra stops of speed are essential. So if you want a fast lens, make it a ...
  • Replied in First lenses
    Cheap lenses are getting very expensive, once you have one excellent lens and see the difference. Then you want to replace them. This is my experience: I you read thiese posts you will find many ...
  • Like a Sigma Art 50mm F1,4 on FF? Or even a nifty fifty like the 50mm F1,8 for EUR/USD 180 and 330g? Instead of the 50mm F2,4 equivalent 25mm F1,2 on M43 for EUR/USD1200 and 410g? Peter NB: I do ...
  • Replied in Good choice, ...
    if you have no better tele lens. I used the Ricoh GR with it's 14mm equiv. lens, which is a little wider than the 17 and the 40-150 R on the GX7. This is a great combination, as far as FLs are ...
  • Do I understand you correctly: M43 has excellent and expensive cameras built around subprime sensors? (1) I agree, if I consider the G80/85 (2) The EM1ii might be a step ...
  • Yes, that is how I feel, too. Peter
  • Replied in Don't worry
    This is nicely balanced by fan boys, perhaps even shills. But this is the most lively forum here on DPR. Do you really want to wait 3 days for the first reactions to your posts? Peter
  • Judging from the pictures of the GH5 with 12-60, I'd say franschoek's guess is nearer to the truth: this lens looks about as big as the 12-40. Peter
  • I didn't see any statement about that. I expect PL lenses to be WR, but if they are not, this will give me second thoughts. Peter
  • built around a dated sensor with, for modern standard, low resolution and DR. Quite sad, actually. I don't understand why Panasonic throws another body on the market that will be sold with 40% ...
  • So am I. Right; the only interesting things are the hopefully hand held high res mode on the EM1ii and the 6K photo mode on the GH5 - at least for me as a non video-grapher. But these bodies are ...
  • Yes, weight is extremly important: I also use the heavy O 2,8/40-150 and seriously hope the 50-200 will be much lighter. I guess, it will be around 1200 EUR/USD,. but I would happily get rid of the ...
  • It doesn't look THAT big; however, it is an option if weight is low enough. I suppose, IQ will be up there in the Oly Pro league. Peter
  • at 43 rumors - but sadly not specs or price; not even shipping dates. Peter
