On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1296 comments in total)
In reply to:

tbcass: I wonder how this matches up to the GH5? This is pretty expensive for a 4/3 encroaching on FF territory but if you want the ultimate 4/3 this is it for now. That makes it worth the price.

the raw image quality on FF is comparatively better, rest you can count on gh5/ em-1-ii easily. you may like the ergonomics and user experience more on these cameras over FF and specially the cheaper FF variants.

On article Meet two nomadic photographers who travel full-time (151 comments in total)

It all ends up on finances and team. I travelled a lot in past 7 years (lightnodes.com) but cant imagine myself of being a complete nomad, bec of family responsibilities, my day to day work, age, and team (can't be one person, doing all this planing and shooting on your own).

It's a great travelog and these people are not just talented, they are also very courageous and very very lucky/ blessed :)

Naveed Akhtar: another winner .. from olympus
I would probably wait for em-5 equivalent with 4k and same ibis as this, bec I am not into fast af tracking or 15 fps shutter speed and I like the tiny hand-grips of em-5s.
but no doubt, this one is another step forward by olympus in almost each direction :)

smaller squarer (if this word exist) has it's advantages. go figure !!
i wouldn't consider oly or pany if they would have followed others!

PanchoVilla: That camera looks huge. Why should I dump my DSLR, if the cameras are the same size? What's the advantage again?

If you care about small size only, there are many to chose from in m43 world.

On article DxOMark confirms Canon EOS 1D X II sensor advances (217 comments in total)

it is indeed interesting to see, but this is what we have been saying for ages that Canon chips are more geared towards performance .. than iQ
its good to see finally Canon made a camera that make the distinction clearer..

Naveed Akhtar: Silver again .. really
Even the shutter shock is gone ..

Nevermind; it's a great camera nevertheless!!

On article Mosh pits and sunsets: Shooting with the Panasonic GX85 (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jostian: Just don't like the plasticky feel of the GX85, so I went with the GX7 (love that 'made in Japan' bit), sure no 4k but I don't shoot video so it's no biggy, and the built quality and magnesium alloy body just exude class.

The GX8 was an option but its quite a bit bigger and has no built in flash which can be useful at times, Panasonic have a nice range of cameras and lenses at present. Got the 12 to 35mm F2.8 lens, what a cracker!

Hi mate .. am thoroughly enjoying gx7 for last couple of years ..
really wish if they chose same build quality for gx85 though .. gx85 is clearly a better camera otherwise!!

In reply to:

ProfHankD: It's not cheap, but it is a really nice camera with lots of features... and an older, too-small, sensor. It is a real pitty that micro4/3 wasn't designed to accommodate a range of sensor sizes up to FF....

Your last sentence .. doesn't make any sense!!
one camera .. with range of sensor sizes?

In reply to:

Elchanan: Impressive. A little dodgy at ISO 6400, but that's to be expected. Also, I prefer the natural looking OOC JPEGS to the raw conversions which seem a tad overexposed.

and i like it on all the ISOs .. bit more grainy, but fits my taste
i like my dark photos bit grainy any-ways ..

I personally like OOC too, I guess raw conversion is just to show the potential!
