  • My eye's aren't what they used to be, so AF on the 4/3 lenses is an important feature for me.  I think I've decided on the mk 2 so I'm starting to save my pennies (actually it's nickels now since ...
  • I was lucky and found a pretty good copy of the Sigma Bigma so I'm not too stressed.  It's slow and no SHG lens for sure but it's there if I need it.  I find most of the stuff I'm interested in is ...
  • I hear you - I'm surprised so many people can get their hands in my pockets.  Not much left nowadays so I have to plan ahead.  Not a bad thing in itself since my E-5 is working fine and I did find ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Good information. It would be nice to embrace the integrated m4/3 system - good camera, good lenses with a well thought out roadmap and more possibly on the way (wait a minute, those were exactly ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    I'm with you.  It's probably pretty difficult to find a bad camera these days.
  • Sorry - completely missed this thread from a few days ago - didn't find any others but need to search some more. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62000451 - similar type question It seems most ...
  • Created discussion thread Impact of Video
    Hopefully this doesn't devolve into a video pro/con war.  That's not my intent as both camps have their views and adherents.  I just wanted a better understanding. I was wondering if video comes ...
  • Replied in AF performance
    Thanks Dennis - good points and you're right.  I picked up mine used from an acquaintance for a lot less but an E-5 at KEH today is $600 so the leap to E-M1.2 doesn't seem as bad. I'm guessing you ...
  • Replied in Good to know
    Thanks Henry I'm glad to hear you're happy with the EM1.2 and your 4/3 lenses - particularly the success rate.  Those are the ones I use as well and I was concerned about how well they would work.  ...
  • Thanks for the feedback, I agree, the E-M1's have a lot going for them. That's a very nice picture and at 1/3 sec is impressive. Funny that the increased pixels didn't come up very much in the ...
  • Replied in AF performance
    Hi Rick I probably should have been clearer.  I wasn't suggesting the E-5 was better, only wondering if the E-M1ii was $2k better than it. Regards Dave
  • Replied in AF performance
    Hi Peter Thanks for the link to your past thread - good work and very interesting.  Unfortunately it's going to make my decision harder now. I'd originally just been wondering if users found the ...
  • I appreciate you all taking the time to respond.  It's a lot of money for me so I want to make sure it's the right thing to do and there's no surprises.  Doesn't sound like there's any downside ...
  • Created discussion thread E-5 Upgrade Question
    Sorry, I know this is the SLR forum but my E-5 is getting a bit long in the tooth now and I'm guessing most of you have been down this path. I was hoping to hear what your thoughts and experiences ...
  • When does it stop though? Maybe part of the answer to "how much resolution is enough" will lie in our ability to reasonably manage and edit the files. Did I hear somewhere that some software has ...
  • I wonder how big the TIFF file would be for editing.  My computer struggles with the files I currently work with and they're nowhere near what the newer cameras are putting out.
  • Replied in They do
    Sorry - don't want to detract from the original post of how much resolution is enough. There is a relationship between sensor size/pixel size and image quality that should be kept in mind In this ...
  • Replied in Olympus says 12
    At least that was their stance in 2009 and they bet the farm on it. https://www.cnet.com/news/olympus-12-megapixels-is-enough-for-most-folks/
  • Personally I'm confident enough to be able to enjoy other photographer's views for what they are - their views.  I enjoy Mike's blog for the meandering that it lets me do and the places it takes ...
  • Replied in Maybe
    The new Fuji GFX 50R can fit sixty-six uncompressed RAW files or 254 superfine JPEGs on an 8Gb memory card and that trend towards larger and larger files doesn't seem to be slowing down. Most users ...
