  • Replied in Why?
    If you want performance like that, just go buy a FF camera.
  • Maybe try the 'other' 35-100.  The 4-5.6 version from Panny.  It is tiny light and very high IQ.  Easy to store in a jacket pocket for easy access when needed.  I have never had any of the f2.8 ...
  • That is basically it.  The 18-135 IS STM is probably the best superzoom ever made.  I don't have the 18-150, but have read some reviews.  It seems like a decent lens, more typical of what you get ...
  • I've read some of his books. Light in those days didn't mean the same thing as light today. Really totally different gear. I did read once where he said he could do most of his work with just 2...

  • Go for 6D or other FF camera just on the basis of your lenses.  They are all FF and gives you a nice range.  On crop they won't be as useful.  Normally I would say 80D would be better choice for ...
  • Replied in I would ...
    put a real lens on the camera.  Other than having a very wide 8mm the lens cap isn't good for much.  The 12-32 is the best lens for that camera.   A 14/2.5 is a tiny bit shorter, but not worth it ...
  • Replied in Don't Bother
    I have no idea if it is available, but I wouldn't recommend it.  I have always ignored these extended warranties on everything i have bought.  I'm sure at some time something will break that I ...
  • You are comparing an older discontinued (I assume you bought a refrub) camera with a current one so it is not surprising there is a huge price difference.  That said, it shows how far behind Canon ...
  • Nor was I asking you to comment on my comment.  If you cannot stand to have other people express views different than yours I suggest you do not visit internet forums.
  • Replied in Basically .....
    the problem isn't so much the AF speed, as it is the inability to focus if there is any subject movement.  The speed at which it focuses on static subjects isn't any practical problem.  If the ...
  • Don't see much difference at pixel level.  The extra MP of the II will result in less noise at a given print size so there is improvement.  Not much to get excited about if, like me, you already ...
  • I don't have a Canon 17-55.  At one point I did.  It was a very nice lens.  Got rid of APSC camera and that lens.  Later bought SL1 and then added the 18-135 IS STM.  Very nice lens for its range. ...
  • Replied in Of course ...
    it is.  Always better to have the option of using IS.  Having said that it is a great lens.  One of the things that I like about  Canon mirrorless is that they use electronic first curtain ...
  • Not meaning Canon is trying to deceive us. Just that looking only at a headline is very deceiving. 70% is a huge jump. If Canon had any even semi competitive mirrorless models a year ago it would ...
  • than the one she has.  Look for either the Panny 14-45, or second version or their 14-42.  Both are better than the Oly.  The 12-40/2.8 is a great lens, but a bit big for an EM10.  The Oly or ...
  • OK.  You statement down below makes me wonder a little. The heaviest m43 lens I own is the 12-40 and it weighs a fraction of an ounce more than the 25/1.2.  It is heavier than I would like.  Since ...
  • The 25/1.2 is the equivalent of a 50/2.4 in FF. Now f2.4 50s aren't common as most 50s are much faster, but Leica does make one. The Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.4 weighs ... drumroll please .... 3.7 ...

    Oly could collaborate with Adobe (or other raw SW producer) and get a true RAW format recognized and processed.
  • Try other BB stores near you.  Best Buy has some of their stores carry a vastly expanded camera equipment selection.  The BB closest to me has horrible selection, but one a little further away has ...
  • Replied in 12-40
    While the 75/1.8 is a superb lens optically it is one of my least used lenses.  Just not a FL that lends itself to a lot of use.  Not that you can't do great work, but it really is a FL that you ...
