    catch.  Missed that one.

    often do you shoot at 60 fps? Me never. A7 III does 10 fps. More than 99% of users will ever need. So the EM1 II is the better camera because it has a feature one in a million will use? Strange logic.
  • yes they do selfies real well, I said that.  Which do you spend more time doing; taking selfies or shooting with that screen hanging way out to the side?

    at least Panny has video to fall back on.  I think both are in trouble, but I see a way out for Panny.  Recently Oly has produced too many 'updated' cameras with 6 year old sensors.  Then they go ...

    I heard was accurate. I didn't listen to the entire thing, but his basic points I heard were correct. You might not like the conclusions he draws, but that is an entirely separate issue. Also, who ...

    who wants to drive around with a surfboard mounted above your trunk? If m43 is the STI, I'm selling all mine right now.

    because the low end Sony FF outperforms the high end m43 in IQ by a considerable margin.  Just theorizing I'm not the OP.

    like their take on Oly and Panny, but sounds reasonable to me.  I do think Sony is the one to knock off the top right now.  Who know if Canon or Nikon can do that.  Will be interesting to watch. If ...
  • why people like those things.  Every time you use it, you DOUBLE the width of the camera.  Just seems silly to me, especially with something like m43 that is supposed to be about small size.  Also ...
  • with using a macro lens for portraits. I've done it a lot. My first m43 45 prime was the PL 45 2.8. Still one of the best portrait lenses in m43 due to really really good bokeh, so there is no ...

    give that man a cigar.  That is exactly what happens assuming both sensors use similar technology.  Don't get hung up on comparing any 2 exact models, but given similar sensor tech in each, a FF ...

    is not one of the better kit lenses really. There are other much better kit lenses available. I have the original Panny 14-45 and it is very good. Likewise for the dimunitive 12-32. I don't own ...

    with the Panny.  I own the Olympus and it's nothing special.  All reports I have read claim better performance for the Panny FWIW.

    Why did you shoot at f16 for the 6D? I am aware that it is the equivalent aperture to the f8 for the m43 shot, but you are not going to get good results at f16. Both would undoubtedly be better at ...

    It happened you'll just have to believe me. Pictures are long gone. Just testing. Nothing of artistic value worth clogging up my hard drive. Nothing should have really been a surprise in what I ...

    that they dropped the GM line.  I have a GM1 and love it. I saw the same rumor. I'd bet in the not terribly distant future Panny only makes m43 'video' cameras.  Not that these won't be able to ...
  • Often this is totally misleading. Comparing say an A7R III with a 24-70 2.8 to an EM1 II with a 12-40 2.8 is a totally lopsided comparison and not in the least equal in capabilities. Again not the ...
  • Stuck? Not sure exactly what you're looking for. Some more info might help. If weight/size are a concern then you need to prioritize what you want to carry. Smaller formats won't necessarily save ...

    pictures. Just because my Honda gets me to work just as fast as a Ferrari doesn't make it one.  Some folks here have a hard time with that for some strange reason.

    I can put a Coke bottle on the front of a Sony A7R III and a great lens on almost any other camera and the other camera will win. Could you have used a more lopsided comparison than to use the ...
