    Panny 20 1.7, Oly 17 1.8 or 25 1.8? I owned the 19 2.8 and while not a bad lens at all in the IQ department, f2.8 on m43 isn't really all that fast though.  One of the reasons to own a prime is ...

    Sony manages to sell tiny RX 100 series cameras north of $1K. I agree that many think like you mentioned, but obviously you can sell a small expensive camera or Sony would not be on the sixth ...
  • Replied in It's ...
    a widescreen world now so unfortunately the 4:3 format went the wrong way.  For some things I prefer 4:3, but I would say overall now a 3:2 is more useful in general.  So your 20MP is probably ...
  • Replied in Since ...
    you don't own any m43 gear why not look at other brands? To look to start out in a new system with an already outdated camera says something about the state of m43.  Think about that a bit before ...

    the MP count, it is also the high ISO and DR performance that will keep all but the most diehard m43 fan-boy from buying such a camera.

    Pretty much.  Samsung produced a pretty ground breaking camera just before they quietly exited the photo business. Just like when Panny stopped making 43 cameras? So why does Oly think that formula ...

    you already have some Fuji gear just stay there. No major benefit of m43 over Fuji and the XT3 is a sweet camera. I hope you asked this on the Fuji forum also as you will certainly get the ...
  • Replied in More than ...
    an EPL9 or GX850?  Surely. Anywhere up to about the EM5, G85 level would be reasonable for a well designed and manufactured product. Of course it appears that mine and your thoughts are in the ...

    you seem to think you know a lot about me from what you just wrote.  You're off base here on so many topics I don't have the time to go into them all.  Probably better for you to write about ...
  • Replied in Well ...
    photography is a hobby for me.  I do however know a few pro photographers and I have run a successful business for 30 years.  I think those things combined gives me a pretty good understanding ...

    certainly shorter height wise than a DSLR style body, but some folks, like me, are left eye dominant.  Makes some features of it hard to impossible to use (moving AF point with thumb on scree when ...
  • Replied in If ...
    someone were starting from scratch the XT3 is a hugely tempting camera.  Fuji has a great lens lineup also.  I own a lot of m43 and Canon gear already but if I were just starting this is where I ...
  • Replied in I fear ...
    you re correct. No sign of a G95 (or any new cameras for that mater) and I wouldn't be surprised if you have already seen the last new Panny m43 body already. Their attention is elsewhere and m43 ...

    ever seen a company say "yeah we're going to discontinue that 6 months from now'? Never happens.  Nikon never uttered a peep about the 1 system going bye bye.   Same for Samsung.  Panny will never ...
  • price. The G9 is a big camera. They could easily sell the G95 for $400-500 less than the G9 (48--900 body) so that is enough difference to justify it. Also many folks would just rather have a more ...

    I can take a rifle that shoots like cr@p and hit the bullseye .. sometimes. Nice photo. Very well done. Glad that it worked out for that shot, but the lens AF is terrible, just terrible. I like it ...

    find another lens.  No camera is going to make that thing fast. Just tried my 20 on my GX9.  Still slow slow slow.  Pictures look great if you can get it to focus before whatever you were trying ...
  • I have a GX9. Generally good camera, but not as user friendly as a G85 DSLR style camera. Also, if left eye dominant like me, some aspects are absolutely maddening. Even if I were right eye ...

    First one on that list is very important.  Main objective is to make money.  Here Oly really doesn't do well.  All gear is overpriced compared to what other brands Pros typically use (aka Canon, ...

    that says it all.  Saab 900, yeah, that was a popular car.  Also, Saab is dead.  Not a good sign.
