  • I went to Best Buy and they did have the a6500. They are not a camera store, and there basically was no one around to help, and the holders are so large, you cannot get a good idea about the grip ...
  • Off The Mark: Thanks for the insight into the Sony's challenges. I also am very keen on how the menu system and customization of buttons can work. scottyinfrischo: Dynamic range and high ISO ...
  • Created discussion thread A6500 and 18-135 lens
    I have been a longtime micro four-thirds camera person, and also earlier a Pentax user. With travel looming this summer, I have been looking for a general purpose single lens in a lightweight kit. ...
  • I believe these are the correct names for my own camera: Panasonic G-LXXXV here in the U.S. the G-LXXX in Europe the G-LXXXI in Germany and the G-VII-Mark II in Japan.
  • Nice shot and detail. Wonderful blue color. Do you use the 20-40 for size and weight, or is it just better than the 18-135 (and a bit lighter)?
  • Created discussion thread Pentax KP Optical Viewfinder
    How is the Optical Viewfinder on the KP compared with, e.g., the K-3ii? I am considering returning to Pentax but really want a high quality viewfinder. I remember the K-3ii as being in that category. ...
  • After all the helpful guidance, information, and opinion, I purchased the GX85 . I really like the size with the 12-32 lens and the general handling, including the menus that are so familiar from ...
  • I am interested in #1 mostly, how reliably and quickly will it lock onto subjects. Thanks.
  • Created discussion thread Autofocus speed on X-E2S
    I have not ventured into the Fuji world, being previously in Pentax and now in Micro Four Thirds. I see very attractive deals right now on the X-E2S, the X-T1 and other Fujis. I am wondering ...
  • Replied in Decision......
    After all the good information, I decided to not decide. It all can wait until after the holiday. In any event, the E-M1 with the Panasonic 20mm lens is pretty compact as “second” camera.
  • I think the discussion basically confirms my initial decision to go with the LX100. It seems as though I would utilize it in a way that others have confirmed as being useful to them. I have a ...
  • I have a G85 that I use as my main camera and want a somewhat smaller companion and also a second camera with a wider angle lens on it when I have the long telephoto on the G85. I ordered a LX100 ...
  • I am going to wait a bit and see if anything develops over Thanksgiving weekend. My preference is really to go with the 16GB first and secondly the 256GB SSD. I probably will do that ultimately. I ...
  • Created discussion thread 2017 MacBook Pro 2.3GHz basic model
    I need to choose between the two for general Office Suite, email, web, and photo editing between these two: 16GB RAM and 128GB SSD 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD I am inclined towards more RAM, but am also ...
  • You might try resetting the System Management Controller (SMC). Here is the information from Apple as to how to do so. See: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295 How to reset the SMC on Mac ...
  • I did not see it mentioned, but could part of the issue be the version of Windows 10 being used? Specifically, is it Windows 10 Pro or Home?
  • The first four points are spot-on: font rendering, networking ease, PDF compatibility, and screen scaling make Macs preferably in a visible and connected way. I actually like Windows 10, too, and ...
