  • I posted my experience with the Oly 12-100 already at anoither thread, but I think it could serve others here as well... I got 48 hours to test this lens. It is a good lens, but not stellar. Apart ...
  • Hi Clayton, yes, in fact it was because of these flattering test reports that I became interested in the Oly 12-100. Very often those tests seem to contradict each other, but in the case of the ...
  • I got 48 hours to test this lens. It is a good lens, but not stellar. Apart from normal shooting, I also did a series of testshots, both nearby ( 150 cm) and far away (15 meters). I compared ...
  • When comparing the iq of several camera's, looking at some testshots can be worthwile, and I do some pixelpeeping when comparing lenses myself. However it strikes me how difficult it can be for ...
  • Most tests were rather negative. The lens has a good resolution in the centre and performs best at 12 mm but the edges are terrible and from 20 mm onwards the resolution goes rapidly down also in...

  • With a bigger sensor I would not be able to carry a couple of lenses with me to all the places I go with my m43 system. The sensor size is THE great advantage for anyone not wanting to carry a...

  • I sincerely hope that the focus tracking in video has improved. I found it the mayor flaw in the G7.

    @dccdp: You are right in saying that colour-science is hihgly subjective, but are you yourself content with Sony colours? Most owners I have spoken to say that they consider the JPG's unusable,...

    pacnwhobbyist, I am afraid that you may be right, and that's a shame. Many photographers do not need a FF for everyday shooting. I like to take a camera with me when I walk in nature, or when I...

  • My Olympus 9-18 mm is incredibly small. My Panasonic 12-32 mm also, as is my 20mm prime. Only these Pro lenses are larger.

  • Why no room anymore for the m43 sensor?
    Mobile phones deliver better IQ every year, so small sensors can improve icredibly fast. The miniature m43 system will evolve further, eliminating the need...

  • Thanks for correcting it! I think Robin's shots look very good indeed...

    Hi Hippo84, no I don't know how much these menus have actually improved. I think the jury is still out. EOSHD was sceptical, but maybe it has improved to an acceptable level.
    Those two primes are...

    There is nothing wrong with admiring the high tech that Sony incorporates into these camerabodies. There is also nothing wrong in mentioning the main flaws of Sony: a line of APS-C lenses that is...

  • The touchscreen addresses the weak point of the A6000 and A6300.

    However, I cannot help but see Sony as the brilliant engineer who can develop some of the best new technical stuff, but doesn't...

  • More and more samples are arriving on the web of these three new Olympus leases.

    Buchan Grant has some very nice pics from this long zoom and also the stunning new 25mm 1.2 on his blog: ...

  • It will be hard to choose one of the universal zooms.
    I have got the newer 14-140 mm and that range is very good for traveling, and while the IQ is quite good for such a package, one would...

  • Carl, maybe you are underestimating these sensors.... They are not that much smaller than APS-C! These are medium motorcycles, and those can become winners when paired with a strong engine, as...

  • You do make a good point, but I guess that the final quality of the photo's will decide whether such a combo is a valid choice. If you look at the first samples on the web, and also the story by...
