    I think the only real reasons to get the 14-35 if you already own hte 16-35 is that you either need a wider FL or for the smaller lens size. I have the 16-35 and looked forward to seeing what ...
  • While I'm not an expert in stage photography by any stretch of the imagination, I have done some stuff that would at least loosely fit in that cataergory. It all came in the rather mundane form of ...
  • I'd agree as long as you don't do a lot of shooting that requires continuous AF.   The EM1 is generally better at AF on any sort of moving subject.  The G9 struggles in this area.  Other than ...
  • Replied in Hammers ...
    Hammers. Let's look at it like were selecting a hammer for a job. Pounding a large stake in the ground? A large sledge hammer works best. Nailing together a delicate piece of furmiture? A finishing ...
  • Yeah, I figured so too.  Being an Armchair Quarterback is an easy job.   I'm not surprised at all.
  • Replied in No ...
    No. I'm not interested in that graph because I have something much more useful ... real world experiences with both the G9 and a Canon R (which isn't even current state of art FF). He wants to ...
  • Replied in If ...
    What you are stating is 100% correct so just keep that 2 stop difference in mind. Keep the analysis simple because it is. One thing to not overlook with Canon is that their EF DSLR lenses adapt ...
  • Replied in If ...
    Yep.  Actually I was trying to edit my post to mention the Tamron 70-180 2.8 for Sony, but you beat me to it!
  • Replied in If ...
    If you regularly shoot in low/challenging light then just go for the FF camera system. It is simply the best tool for that task. I could tell you a lot about sensors and how lenses compare across ...
  • If you want to stay within one system/manufacturer why not go for one of the Sony RX100s with the 24-70 lens? I know it just overlaps the lower end of your RX10, but it is a bit faster at the wide ...
  • Replied in I'd ...
    Yeah, I probably put my post in the wrong location. I was just replying to the OPs last post so I can see how it may look to you or others. Honestly it seems very few people know how to compare ...
  • Replied in I'd ...
    Yep. That's what I was really trying to get thru to the OP. I avoided any particular camera/lens combos or even brands in particular as that just seems to start too many arguements. Hopefully he ...
  • Replied in I'd ...
    I didn't reference you at all. Anything that seems that way was unintentional I assure you. Just pointing out to the OP that this place isn't exactly the place to go for unbiased opinions ...
  • Replied in I'd ...
    I'd be careful with some of the false info being put forth here, especially the incorrect comparison of other format lenses with m43. Too much to get into here, but read this article to know how ...
  • Cheap doesn't have to mean a lens performs poorly or mediocre at all apertures. Cheap keeps you from getting premium build and weather selaing. Cheap keeps you from getting great wide open ...
  • How about saying "50 = 50". Thats the 'light opening' (new term I just created) on both a 200 f4 and a 400 f8 lens. Let's try to get the lens manufacturers try try and relabel the lenses using ...
  • Replied in Why?  Does ...
    Why? Does buying a m43 camera lock one into only using m43 forever? I've shot m43 since the GH1. Doesn't mean I've never owned a different brand/system in paralell. I had a full crop DSLR system ...
  • The only real benefit of the 14-35 over the 16-35 would be size/weight.  The 16-35 on an adapter is kind of big, but IQ wise I find nothing wanting in my 16-35.  It would be nice to 'upgrade' to ...
  • Replied in Undoubtedly ...
    Undoubtedly Canon is targeting not just 43 but the very concept that there is a need for crop sensor cameras. They are showing what many have known for years, and that is you can scale lenses up ...
  • The one thing that threw me at first was learning to use the M-Fn button.  I was used to the row of buttons across most Canon DSLRs and especially the one for changing ISO.  Took me a while to ...
