  • What about the OP, the Marty man himself? It's the biggest mystery left in this poll. Does he crave some EM1markII goodness or is he content with what he has got already? DPReview needs ro know ...
  • Replied in 99,5% sure
    People take their camera apart, to see how they're made. That's how we know the EM1. There's official confirmation for other cameras. Plenty of debates in the forum about the IQ of each. Time ...
  • Replied in no and no.
    Em1 has a Panny sensor, em5II has a Sony one. The former has the old 5-axis IBIS, the latter has the newer one that is pne stop better and can make the micro adjustments for hires shots.
  • I also use Mac OS sporadically, a bit of a headache each time then you gradually get used to it until i switch back to my PC again. There is undeniably a learning curve to Olympus menus. You need ...
  • Replied in hmmm
    But see, a lot of things happen before you press shutter button, things that determine if you get the shot you want or not, things that make you want to take the shot in the first place. Otherwise, ...
  • He is indeed. But there can still be quite a difference between the 16MP and 24MP, especially with the right glass. Something like a Sigma ART 35mm at optimal aperture delivers a level of ...
  • Replied in Doubtful
    While one can not say with absolute certainty, the sensor used in the EM1 markII is probably the same one used in the Pen F and the GX8. If so then it's a known quantity, it offers a resolution ...
  • Replied in Here's the deal
    Most likely linked to the EM1 mark II annoucement. Since the earthquake in Japan delayed sensor production, it also affected the EM1 and everything else down the line. The EPL8 announcement is ...
  • Like the title says. I've moved from FT DSLRs to m43 many years ago, switching from zooms to mostly primes in the process. But sometimes, a shooting situation warrants dusting off the old FT zooms ...
  • Replied in Hypothetically
    If I owned an A7 (II, S, R, whatever), I think I'd have the new cheap 50mm (thank the gods for that one), maybe the cheap-ish 28mm and the kit zoom. That's about it. I find the whole system ...
  • Replied in No no no
    No, it was not exagerated. The AF was ok in 2009, but latter generations of lenses are much, much faster. It's not just how fast it can acquire focus (it hunts) for a single shot, but it won't even ...
  • Generally, the first prime recommended for "noobs" is a 50mm equivalent, so in m43, it's a 25mm prime of which there are plenty to choose from. I think the Lumix 25mm f1.7 goes for 150 bucks or ...
  • You complain the extended zoom range increases the size and then complain f2.8 is not bright enough, let alone f4. I have news for you, faster than f2.8 will also increase size considerably. The ...
  • Wow.

    Both at the IQ potential and price.

  • IQ, MF and AF, build, weather sealing, the fancy box, the logo that says "PRO" on it, the price. :)
  • Replied in Murder
    Interesting. I thought I was alone with this. I do prefer the colors of the early Pens (EPL1, EP3) and older 43 DSLRs. Obviously, the pics are also noisier, but the colors and contrasts still more ...
  • Replied in Resounding YES!
    To answer the poll question more directly, yes. I skipped the Em1 mark1 in favor of the future mark II, with the EM5 markII as a tie-me-over camera until the new EM1 arrives. I do like many of the ...
  • I think some people here were asking for some sort of new zoom, inbetween the kit lenses and the pro 12-40. Not sure this will satisfy them, but great to have more choices. I was considering the ...
  • ART filter on somehow? 2x2 switch activated and some secondary settings are on somehow? If all else fails, take note of your main camera settings then reset to factory settings. See if that works. ...
  • My 25mm f1.8 is sharp. Not Zuiko 75mm f1.8 or Nocticron 42.5 f1.2 sharp, but sharp. Sharper then kit zooms, about as sharp as the pro zooms. So either something is wrong with your 25mm or there's ...
