  • I've only seen the teaser.  Interesting, but I'm not really in the market for another camera.  My em1.2 is going strong and still serves me well.  What interests me most, however, is if any new ...
  • I would bet that there are/were far more owners of E-1 cameras than those who bought and used the E-5.  Somebody might be able to dig up the sales numbers to find out if I my guess is correct.  ...
  • Interesting to read the responses.  I bought an E-1 new in 2004 or 20005, including the grip.  I agree that it felt good to use.  But so did the E-3 and E-5, which I purchased as well.  The E-5 ...
  • And why should the left foot be relaxed?  Having both feet arched helps to create the lines of her legs and the overall pose.
  • They do.  They might be slightly slower to focus, but not enough to make me want to acquire the m4/3 equivalents. Yes.  I have no complaints. My most used 4/3 lens is my 35-100mm f2 and then my ...
  • No.  While I can appreciate b&w film photography, in almost every instance I will prefer the color version  of the same image, if available, whether film or digital.  Film images have no special ...
  • For me, the no-brainer lens is one of the 12-60 zooms.  I have the PL version--I find it's quite good for indoors and parties.  Fast focusing, and on my em1.2, bumping ISO to 800 or 1000 still ...
  • I seldom shoot wide, which is one reason I don't see a need to buy an m4/3 wide lens.  That said, I do have the older Oly 4/3 9-18 lens that I suspect performs about as well as the m4/3 version.  ...
  • Replied in E-5
    I owned E1, E3, & E5, all fitted with grips.  Still have the 3 & 5.  In many ways, I wish the guts of the em1 series had been offered in the E-5 body.
  • The Pro lenses feature constant apertures on the zooms and they and the primes are weather sealed.  The primes, according to most reports, are also sharp throughout their range and are sharp wide ...
  • I haven't read any of the posts, because honestly, this question really doesn't apply to me.  But my answer, for what it's worth:  NONE I have no need to acquire more bodies or lenses and nothing ...
  • Replied in . . . uh, no
    Not a focal length I shoot very much at all.  I use far more in the 25-100mm & up range.  My 12-60 PL lens is adequate for wider shots for my purposes and when I do shoot wide, I tend to prefer ...
  • Interesting.  I had the E-1, E-3, and E-5.  Used all 3 with grips permanently attached.  The way they handled, for me, was so similar that I only noticed small differences that did not matter.  ...
  • Hmmmm.   I primarily use the viewfinder on my em1.2.  Only rarely do I employ the lcd screen, and that's when I have the camera on tripod and have engaged focus peaking.   When I look through the ...
  • Replied in Dance
    It's a flowing, artful pose.  The lighting works well.  Excellent use of negative space.  Whether it's a good dance pose or not is irrelevant.  The overall image is really nice, in my opinion.  ...
  • Replied in Dance
    Matter of opinion, don't you think, Don?  I find the pose very nice and particularly like the extension of her left arm & her left hand position in particular.   Overall, I find the image very ...
  • When I had the E-1, I started off with several of the OM lenses.  The 50mm f1.8 "made in Japan" is quite a nice lens, although a bit soft at f1.8 and f2.8.  It sharpened quite nicely when stopped ...
  • There are options hardly anyone has mentioned that could suffice, weight & size not withstanding.  The 4/3 300mm f2.8 lens combined with either the 4/3 1.4TC or 2.0TC  yields a prime lens at 420mm ...
  • The new company, I suspect, will do enough market research to try to sell products that make a profit.  Whether they introduce more pro-like smaller cameras & lenses, maintain some of current ...
  • I seldom shoot anything with a FL less than 30mm. My favorite lens is my 35-100mm f2 and I use it throughout its range. But I suppose I could make do with 75mm prime. :-)
