    the 20 1.7.  Just too slow to focus for kids.  Otherwuse a nice lens.  I'm assuming you don't want to use your 17 1.2 on this camera (waning to keep it small I'm guessing).  If I wanted a prime ...
  • But wait ... this camera is aimed at amateur Asian women who want a fashionable camera and barely know how to press the shutter button.  None of them are going to use an OVF. While it could ...
  • To me the G85 is just a better all around camera design.  Also the IBIS on the G85 is reported to be much better.  I'd take the better over all camera over the slight IQ bump of the 20MP in the Gx8.
  • If i had to use only one of those 2 exactly I would go with the Canon.  The 12-32 is a good lens, but 64mm equiv is a bit short for all around use.  Now add the 35-100 4-5.6 to the EM10 and I'd ...
  • My bad.  Missed that.  Don't have any 20MP m43 yet so I'll withhold comment on that one.
  • Really a 100 2.8 & 70 1.4 equivalent Really a 170 3.6 & 120 2.5 equivalent You have to factor in the 2 stop effective loss that comes with the m43 format vs FF. Regardless of the above I am very ...
  • Replied in Canon 24 MP
    I have both m43 16MP and Canon APSC with the newer 24MP sensor.  The newer Canon 24MP sensor is noticeably better than the16MP m43 cameras.  I have both.  Don't need to trust DXO or anyone else.

    Admittedly the GM series are unique in the ILC world.   I have a GM1 and probably will never part with it for that reason.  Most other m43 camera bodies have little difference from APSC and some ...

    What exactly can't you replicate?
  • Replied in 7
    It has a better version of Oly's IBIS.  Otherwise not much difference.  The older IBIS on the 5 and below is really bad and can ruin more shots than it saves.
  • How has that adapter worked for you?  Have you possibly tried either the 70-200 4L IS or 55-250 IS STM on it. Can you update the firmare on the adapter? Thanks.
  • Replied in Viltrox?
    Tom: Please update us when you get your Viltrox adapter.  Looking at them I notice that there is a small lever on the side that the ads say is a 'aperture adjustment'.  Any idea what this does.  I ...
  • Yep.  No reason for M50 to cost more than SL2.  Canon still trying to keep the mirrorless premium.  Just knock the body down to $500-600 and it should sell well.
  • Replied in Not ...
    2 surprising. The iphone's lens is about 3.5 stops faster (assuming f5.6). Now wide end of kit lens is about f3.5 so not sure why you took first pic at f5.6 but I'll use that f stop. I don't know ...
  • Replied in SL2 ...
    skip the kit lens and get the 18-135 IS STM lens.  Great lens.  Waaaaay better than any superzoom has a right to be.  If you need longer or wider add either or both the 55-250 IS STM and 10-18 I ...

    calculate the cost of a TV in 1970 vs now. The TV is much less now, especially in inflation adjusted dollars. Cameras are electronic devices. We're getting ripped off. I bought my first TV (19") ...
  • Never had any complaints with mine.  IS sucks as you noted.  If using slower shutter speeds be sure to take lots of extra frames.  The IS isn't very good, but the more frames you take the better ...
  • Try this. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1244081-REG/sirui_sut024x_t_024x_traveler_light_series.html It will hold my Canon 6D so plenty for m43 cameras.  Very high quality.
  • Replied in Seriously?
    That camera ALREADY has a viewfinder.  Yes technically you can put another one on top, but it already has one, and consequently the space that it occupies.  An EM10 is much taller than a EPL ...
