  • It sounds like any of the options you were considering would suit your needs. If you have access to a physical camera store, why don't you just head down there and see what feels best to you, and ...
  • Replied in TZ300?
    I have the RX100 M6, and TZ/ZS100. I like them both, they serve different purposes. If I'm shooting sports or action outdoors, I'll use the Sony because it will nail focus every single time For ...
  • I have been very impressed with all of my pro Olympus zoom lenses, and the 45f1.8. I think they're great performers, and reasonably priced for the most part. At some point I'll buy into a few of ...
  • If you're looking for significant zoom capabilities, keep in mind that m43 has a significant crop factor compared to the larger formats, and that may provide an advantage for you. Plus the lenses ...
  • I doubt either of these are the case, but it might be worth looking into just to make sure.... Make sure you have the proper Canon app, there are, at least there were, several different ones. Is ...
  • I have generally found anything Roger has written to be entertaining, informative, and accessable to people of all technical levels. Can't ask for much more than that.

  • I also ended up going with the Olympus 12 to 40 instead of the Lumix 12 to 35. at that point I had switched to OMDs and didn't need the ois, although that's no longer an issue for Panasonic. I ...
  • I have both the Olympus and Panasonic F 2.8 big zooms. I definitely use the Olympus more, but when I'm going somewhere and space is at a premium, and it usually is when you're traveling with kids, ...
  • A while back it was my Olympus XZ1. Nothing fancy, and lots of easy to access manual controls. And a nice sharp lens across the board. Now, I think it's my Lumix ZS100. It has quite a few direct ...
  • Personally, I need IBIS. My hands aren't that steady to begin with. With my better systems, I can take a 1+ sec exposure and have it sharp and usable. It's one of those things I didn't appreciate ...
  • These are all valid points. Fortunately the three lenses I use most do not trombone, so at least I'm eliminating that risk factor, Although there is always the possibility of something getting in ...
  • I use a UV filter only under specific circumstances. If I'm going somewhere where there's the potential for salt or sand spray on my lens, then I will put a filter on it. I primarily shoot with ...
  • I believe the shot to shot speed is slightly improved on the Mark 2. I have the mk1, But I have other enthusiast and DSLRs that shoot much faster anyway, so it was a non-issue for me. I think it's ...
  • My 1" enthusiast compact cameras from the 2014 era take pictures that are just as good as my old Lumix g5 with a slow kit lens. Put a higher quality lens on the g5, and it will win the contest though.
  • Replied in Feeling amused
    People get really bent out of shape over all kinds of crazy stuff. In the end we're all taking pictures, so the goal is the same, to capture something that you personally enjoy, and or maybe ...
  • I definitely get where you're coming from, but whenever kids are involved with your travel, you usually want to have them in your pictures, and man, they're fast , so having a prime doesn't work ...
  • If space or time is a pressing concern,  as it often is when traveling with children, I'll go with my ZS100 or RX100 enthusiast zoom cameras and leave the DSLR at home. On occasion I'll take two ...
  • It's inevitable, that at some point along the supply chain, some component or raw material will have originated from somewhere that somebody doesn't like. While I would prefer in general to buy ...
  • I don't know what the best option is here, or even with the legal option is, but from a customer service perspective I would take the picture down. Is it truly a one in a million unique picture ...
  • Most bodies would probably be okay for this, As long as they can shoot at three or four frames per second minimum. The issue is your lens, you're going to want something that's relatively fast ...
