  • Except we don't know about the 56F1,4 yet. The 60F2,8 was outstanding and I hope, the 56 will have similar IQ to the (huge) 16mm. Peter
  • Replied in Olympus 1.8/25?
    If AF on the 20mm is too slow and loud for you, I'd think the O 1.8/25 is the best lens you can get in this price/IQ range. The P 1,7/25, the O 1,8/17 and Sigma 2,8/19 are not what you could call ...
  • I didn't realize this. Thanks for the info, Gary. Peter
  • If Olympus want to sell a M43 camera for 2500-3000 USD/EUR, they compete with 45MP FF cameras with capable 5EV+ IBIS and excellent DR at up to 1/4000s. Though I find HiRes handheld with 1/60 a ...
  • Replied in The Poses
    The poses are not flattering for this skinny model, at least in my eyes: #1 it is the left leg and the hips #3 the macerated arms and #4 the hunched back. I like #2 best. YMMV - Peter
  • Right. What I meant is, wide primes are mandatory and the OP used a 1,4/25 normal lens. ;) And I wasn't serious! Peter
  • Replied in New Theory?
    Yes, completely.
  • Replied in Eerie
    Fascinating colors - they make this picture rather haunting... Peter
  • Replied in New Theory?
    Please tell me. I am very interested. It all started in a desert: the lens was blocked and din't retract, when I switched the camera off, but I got it working again. It was very dry and I assume ...
  • Street photography has to tick these vital points: 1. B&W - ok in most pictures 2. Street scene - ok 3. Wide angle lens - no 4. a) Young women in skimpy clothes seen from behind - no 4. b) Old men ...
  • Same here: nearly 20°C, normal would be around 7°. Great capture! Peter
  • Replied in German Autumn
    We had some rain finally, but then it cleared up when the sun was up. Wineyards and gardens: Beech trees in the forest, now at their best (spring time is their second best) Peter
  • The GRiii has some sort of dust removal from the sensor, but it looks as if they don't think they will improve dust resistance of the lens. Peter
  • Replied in Sorry.
    This looks like my problem: there might be dust in the aperture mechanism. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61883717 In my case, it turned worse: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61909427 Peter
  • Replied in Updated update
    The last 100 images the GR worked, when pressing the release button while switching it on. So I hoped, it might perhaps recover. Now I have to repeat this process several times (and several black ...
  • Then treat is with a lot of care - the lens looks very well built because of it's metal finish, but inside the focus helix is plastic. I ruined my first sample by turning the focus ring with too ...
  • Replied in I see a drop!
    It has dropped by 0.33% - EUR 1530 to 1480. ;) Peter
  • Hy Glen Happy is always good. If you have been satisfied with the 14-42, get another one. However, there is another choice: the Panasonic Lumix 12-60 F3,5-5,6: excellent at the wide end, not so ...
  • ... think what that means: 2) It works at 1/60s 3) It works perfectly with people too if they stand reasoneably still. (Quoted from 43 rumors) For usablity you still need a A7R.3, Z7 or S1R for ...
  • Replied in Same with mine
    I really love the IQ of the GR and already miss it. But the camera is too short lived and quirky to get another one - at least that is how I decided for the moment. I had the same problem with the ...
