  • I went from an E-P3 to an EM5II and the upgrade was very significant in nearly every front (except colors, I prefer the older sensor/image processing in this respect). It felt like I had changed ...
  • Replied in Or...
    They have no plans to go full frame, save for designing lens patents to sell to other manufacturers.
  • I look forward to the unavoidable match-up against other 24mm lenses, what-we-expected-what-we-got type of article, the exhaustive Rishi test were he will show the lens is 1/8 of a stop slower than...

  • Either an OMD (Em10 mark II or III is fine). A Pen F Or one of the smaller, older E-PL Pen cameras (E-PL5 or E-PL7 for example) with the possibility to attach an external EVF. All would work but an ...
  • Replied in Relax
    I didn't imply such a m43 camera existed, but the OP did ask for a reason, any reason, so I was just thinking of whatever feature on individual m43 cameras that you can not find on the EM5II. ...
  • - You want something tiny - You want something bigger, with a strong grip - You want more than 16MP - you prefer a tilty screen over a fully swivel screen - You want 4K/really advanced video features ...
  • Never had any reliability issue with a Olympus product. Ever. The closest was the early firmware of the EM5II was a bit buggy, and is fine since the update. No complaints. To be fair, the only ...
  • But the point is the performance is lacking vs the "70's tech". A sentiment repeated by others in this thread. Why not DFD with PDAF, like the EM1 has both contrast detect with PDAF? When DFD has ...
  • Created discussion thread Why is Panasonic so stubborn with DFD?
    The tech works, it's a better than most contrast-detect systems out there. But it still lags behind some of the most rudimentary PDAF systems. AF is the most consistent criticism on the GH5, ...
  • Personally, I would have liked a FF Olympus system, probably over any of the other camera manufacturers out there But... I don't believe Olympus has to resources to really go toe-to-toe with big ...
  • Take it or leave it. :)
  • Replied in Yes but...
    Yes, most definitely. It's one of the best deals in m43. However, if you are willing to sacrifice a bit of IQ and willing to pay some more (get it used or something), it makes more sense to just ...
  • Or whichever the successor to the Z6 will be called, when most first-gen problems are ironed out. I like what I see with Z6/Z7. Only AF seems a bit iffy, but the rest like weather sealing, video, ...
  • Between 0 and 2000 dollars, there's a lot of wiggle room. But by 2000 bucks, you start competing directly with current, entry-level FF cameras. For many people, at this price range, they'd rather ...
  • Replied in Yes it does
    I don't like Panasonic menus and JPEG output and some of the technical limitations of the camera but I put up with all of it because you can have a powerful little camera with good RAW output if ...
  • ISO 8000 in broad daylight. Oh my. Most definitely take more control of your camera!
  • Hypotheticals, man, hypotheticals. you know, what if... It's not about one manufacturer leaving, it's about taking a m43 strenght, two manufacturers, and removing it and asking if the system would ...
  • Created discussion thread M43 without either Oly or Panny
    Imagine a parallel universe where only one manufacturer dominates m43, dismissing the various duplicate lenses, essentially it's half of what m43 is today with a single manufacturer-slant to the ...
  • Replied in yeah
    It seemed like the X-T2 was still relatively current so this upgrade came as a surprise for me. On paper, nothing extraordinary different, but highly competitive still. missing IBIS is shame. Not ...
  • Replied in Here's why
    I didn't choose m43 per se, I chose 43 DSLR's first. Back in 2009, I found the E620 to be a better proposition than the E-P1. I also liked the lenses better (there was practically nothing on m43). ...
