  • Maybe they make good cameras?  M5 is a very good product.  M3 was Ok, not stellar and M had lots of shortcomings.  Continual improvement.  Also they have the best lens compatibility with their ...
  • Seriously.  That was just to keep enough interest in 43 to sell off whatever stock was left.  I put absolutely zero credibility in that when it was announced. Pannys situation is totally different. ...
  • Pretty good summation for those that don't want to read it all. Looked at a different way, Fujifilm and Sony are the two elephants that have decided this is their room and walk around as if they ...
  • Not a big deal.  Mostly just looks weird.  Camera cannot sit flat on a table etc.  It is perfectly usable, just looks like the two weren't meant for each other.  There is an add on grip that adds ...
  • Replied in KEH
    Never bought from them, but they have a very good reputation.  I believe their ratings  assume in the rating that the item is fully functional so in that manner the rating only reflects the ...
  • The first lens I would add to the kit lens would be the 42.5/1.7. This gives a decent long FL along with a faster aperture and it has IS. These 2 lenses can do pretty much anything you need except ...
  • 12-40 better than the Canon 17-55?  I had that lens and was always impressed with it. No longer have it due to getting FF camera.  Don't have 12-40 so can't comment on that.  Curious as to what ...
  • Great idea. I don't think its usefulness is just limited to T/S lenses either. With a 'regular' 35mm lens you will be able to record almost the entire image circle (comes up a little short...

  • The linked review showed both.  Roughly the same.  Panny has some advantage in that with the longer FL you can narrow down the background coverage to avoid distracting elements if needed, but the ...
  • In response to all in Bold Type - yeah right. Also maybe he sold more m43 images because he used the m43 camera more.  That would make a lot of sense! Sorry can't take any of that article seriously.
  • You have to look to EF or EFS lenses now.  First try the 55-250 IS STM.  Will focus just as fast as 55-200.  A little longer and really good IQ at long end.  Next up the line would be the new ...
  • Thanks for the info and the link.  The ones currently for sale area bit over the $250 mark unfortunately.  I have seen them for sale around that price on some buy/sell forums.  Usually part of a ...
  • Replied in RX 10 III ?
    You might be better off selling everything and getting a Sony RX10 III. You want to cover a really big range with one lens. The RX10 III might be the best camera/lens for such a job. I really ...
  • Yes you need an adapter. It adds 1" in depth and 4 ounces in weight. The adapter is a simple tube with the electrical contacts carried thru. Canon has done 2 very smart things in regard to using ...
  • I'm hoping the prices come down so i can try one.  There are some Canon lenses I would recommend over anything available from m43.  The Canon 55-250 is the best budget telephoto I have ever seen. ...
  • For lenses a possible combo: Oly 14-150, Panny 25/1.4 & Panny 12-32 This may seems a strange combo, but the 14-150 will cover most things and is pretty good IQ, The 25 you already know you want and ...
  • This is what mystifies me also. Cheap camera with latest sensor is way less than cameras with older sensor. I think Oly & Panny would have been better off just biting the bullet, ordering a large ...
  • 1 yr 3 months 12 days 4 hours 5 minutes and 27 seconds Maybe. Yep.  We're just entertaining ourselves.  What is going to happen, is going to happen - no matter what is written in this or any other ...
  • Replied in Annual Reports
    Annual reports are for shareholders.  While the company mustn't lie, they sugar coat all they can.  Grain of salt suggested while reading those.
  • Agreed.  in the US they have very little store presence and i don't see much merketing either.  Of course I could also say the same things about Olympus. Possibly.  I never really understood why ...
