  • Hi, I don't know enough to judge their business decisions but it would be a pity to see them withdraw from digital photography. Through the years, they have brought to market some real jewels, both...

  • Hi, I grew up at the foot of the Eastern Alps and for 20 years did quite a lot of rock climbing, extreme skiing, caving and diving, also solo. I am all for letting people go wherever and do...

  • Hi, as a part-time fine art pro I process all my (Raw) photos in PS6 (DxO OpticsPro for high ISO pics Prime denoising) but don't have a high volume of pics with which to deal day in and day out. I...

  • Hi, Just one personal comment. For decades, I happily shot film with a bunch of prime lenses. I began using zooms when I moved to digital. With all their shortcomings, I find that zooms are ideal...

  • Hi PoNY, when you try to standardize fine art you are on a slippery slope. I respect your choice of subjects, technique and gear 100% as a sacred right of every individual artist but expect the...

  • Hi neverendinglight, coming from the days of manual cameras and b&w film, I tend to be more demanding in terms of my own technique and creativity than cutting-edge technology. Also, my typical...

  • Hi, these are 4x and 5x zooms. Have you compared them with the same APS-C ranges?

  • To be exact, it's the distance between the center of contiguous pixels.

  • I guess it's a personal thing. It is true that I have a lot of experience but, with the current standardization, I am able to work my way through 95% of any camera menu without consulting the...

  • Hi, f/1.2 and f/1.8 lenses cannot be compared directly with the former requiring larger size and consequent higher weight. A better if not perfect alternative would be the Zuiko 25mm f/1.8 which is...

  • About the portability of the M43 system. I shoot relatively static subjects for fine art printing and do some animal (especially birds) photography for fun since I am often out in Nature. I really...

  • Hi AleMat496, the excellent D500 is often mentioned as an alternative to the M43 flagships. It has an edge on image quality but the M43 has the size/weight advantage. I work with two E-M5II. The...

  • Hi soundknight21, Raw files being a little underwhelming is very vague. Do they show poor detail and/or dynamic range after you (properly) process them? So far, the sensors in the Oly and Pana...

  • If you are happy with your system God bless you and happy shooting. But let's be rational, there is no way for any APS-C system with equivalent equipment to compare favorably against M43 in terms...

  • Hi, I am an OMD user who scaled down from 4x5", 2 1/4", and 35mm film, and 27lb tripods. I am not interested in comparisons with larger sensor systems because, like many amateurs and pros, my...

  • BTW, today only the Olympus outlet has the refurbished EM5II for $540.00.

  • OMG, I can't resist: are you sure you have human anatomy and central nervous system? (sorry gents!)

  • Hi, I had an interesting and enjoyable discussion with "entoman" about the current role of camera technology in the photographic process. My 2c on this subject are as follows. Technology surely is...

  • Hi neverendinglight, very few people truly "need" the E-M1II. When you get serious about your photography two camera bodies make a lot of sense for redundancy and not having to change lenses in...

  • Hi, the whole argument is about your statement that photographers need? want? the best gear ever. This can be true for some amateurs but not for most pro's who focus on a balance between relative...
