  • "Creative Cloud" is a marketing gimmick. It stores photos online... not like there aren't a dozen or so other services that also do that. You still download the applications onto your computer, ...
  • Two areas where the 4/3 sensor's deeper DOF are a benefit are... Close macro. Here, one is trying to get enough, as the DOF on very close macro is typically razor thin to begin with. With the ...
  • You can pick up a ZD 50-200 for a fairly attractive price, certainly a lot less than the 300. That, plus the adapter, work just fine on my EM1 - remember the EM1's will AF the ZD glass quickly. Oh, ...
  • I would assume that you're an FF shooter, as they seem to be the only ones who make this argument. So let's put that 100 2.8 on your FF body, and shoot it at 2.8. Looks a bit soft, doesn't it? Have ...
  • Go somewhere interesting that you haven't been, and see what you can capture. Locale and subject are also part of the equation.
  • Replied in In the past...
    Panasonic actually made the PL lenses. My faithful 4/3 PL25 in fact has Lumix on the barrel, with Leica on the ring around the objective. And it has always been a very special lens for me. However. ...
  • Replied in Or think legacy
    If you just want the best decent quality long tele for the lowest price, think about some of the older MF lenses out there that can be picked up for a nice price. Here's a moon shot, single ...
  • Replied in Worked for me
    I first got an EM5, later got an EM1 so my ZD glass would AF quickly. You'll be blown away with the PP headroom. PP with the E3 was, for me, limited. It seems like every time I'd start adjusting ...
  • Replied in Tough call
    I kept all of my 4/3 glass, too much of a headache to sell it and ship it. Favorites? ZD 7-14. Yes, it's kinda big, but very distortion free. PL25 1.4 The 4/3 version is a bit sharper than the M43 ...
  • Began with an E10 back in... 2001? Not sure when I got it. After two years, it developed an AF problem, and the BB extended warranty got me a brand new E20. I still have that E20 somewhere. I ...
  • It's gorgeous, a classic. I want one. Problem is... the price. Ouch. Maybe in a couple of years, when I can pick one up in the $600 range. Improvements over the EM10 will be incremental. Better VF, ...
  • Let's face it: if the menus made sense, it just wouldn't be an Olympus camera.
