  • Panasonic Canada had a sale on Panasonic Leica glass that just ended. The PL 100-400 was $400 off. All the lenses had great prices. I jumped in and grabbed a PL 100-400 at CDN$1700. I know it was ...
  • The 40 to 100 focal length range is something I use far, far more often than the one extra stop the f/2.8 lens requires. So, by getting the 12-100 I am able to change lenses far, far less often. ...
  • As I had said in my post from a few days ago , one really must consider diffraction when shooting at small apertures, but it isn't the only consideration. No question, the resulting ISO, shutter ...
  • So the previous post showed diffraction at 1:1. With what we've learned there, we can see that in micro four-thirds the effect is visible, but almost indistinguishable at f/8, noticeable by f/11 ...
  • Lots of "f/16 works for me" and "I never go past f/8" responses here. As I said earlier, you really should test for yourself. However, today is your lucky day. I just received a used PL 8-18 lens ...
  • You've received many excellent responses here. The best advise is to test it for yourself, but I guess you and some readers might be looking for a rule-of-thumb. *** For the TLDR version, simply ...
  • Order Peak Design's longer bolts. That'll really help you attack the Clip to your shoulder strap.
  • Wow, thanks for the excellent reply Phocal! I had to read through a few times to be sure I'd gotten everything. Then I looked around at the websites of some of the local stores that sell fishing ...
  • Love your posts here and over on some other forums Phocal. You're a very good instructor and I love your willingness to share your expertise. Fabulous photos too! I've often thought of taking out ...
  • Another vote for Peak Designs. I put two anchors on. One on the eyelet on the side opposite the shutter release, the other on the bottom of the camera (tripod socket) with the plate I use with ...
  • Just received my Portrait Kit. Great deal getting an extra lens as well as both hoods and two lens cases for the price of the O75/1.8. Nothing to add to the excellent reviews of the lenses, but a ...
  • You'd think. Actually the 12-100 is the same length, but fatter and 33% heavier!
  • Road biking, I use a bag mounted on the top tube that holds my Sony RX100. It's the precursor to these Century Bags . There was only one style back when I ordered, but I'd guess it's the same size ...
  • I'll second the Peak Designs Capture system. Seriously, it's the answer. Watch this video , paying attention to attaching it to the backpack shoulder straps. A few more tips on backpack usage in th ...
  • Hi Ed, I'm a little late to the party so I hope you're still reading the replies. I have the same kit as you above. I also have a J5 and the 18.5/1.8 in the Nikon 1 system. I also own the RX100 ...
  • Easy. The 45/1.8 lives on my NX500 and sits in a place where it's easy to grab and take portraits around the house. The 16-50S lives on my NX1 in my camera bag which I grab when I leave the house ...
  • I own a V3, J5, RX10 MkI as well as a couple RX100s. To me, the difference between the J5's and the Sonys' sensors is irrelevant. More or less same MP, dynamic range and noise at same ISO. These ...
  • As an alternative to consider... I like to keep my camera handy, so I hang it from my shoulder. I then use a cheap case (with a good belt mounting option) for a compact camera that fit's my largest ...
  • Not a fixed lens, but given the forum you're asking in, the Nikon 1 J5 & 6.7-13mm lens is a fantastic choice. Probably the smallest, highest quality choice. Considerably smaller than the EOS M + ...
  • Are you sure the money is there and it's not as scarce as Nikon pretends it to be? Read Thomas Stirr's excellent article on the latest year end CIPA figures for camera sales. That's a nearly 80% ...
