  • The first thing is to decide on a camera system (DSLR? Mirrorless?) and then a model within that system which suits your requirements and budget. It will often come with a kit zoom lens, covering a ...
  • Well, as beautiful a lens as the Olympus 75mm f1.8 is, it isn't a cheap lens. In my own case, an affordable lens system was of primary importance. I shopped for used, mint condition lenses. I got ...
  • I'm typing on my phone so it is currently awkward to post multiple links. And I'm not sure what the best sources for full res images are. But try the dpreview image samples on the review of the ...
  • For those who enjoy both substance AND style...allow me introduce the elegant and svelte Micro 43 option: https://camerasize.com/compact/#681.36,633.409,673.397,ha,t That's the, ahem, 'clunky' ...
  • You make very good points. I agree that Pentax are a great camera system, in my opinion the best for APS-C DSLR. As well as all the points you list, there is the key fact that only Pentax gave ...
  • With a $500 budget I'd much rather get a Micro 43 mirrorless for the smaller size, better video, EVF advantage, better build, extra control dial, and many extra features like IBIS. I recommend the ...
  • If you want to go mirrorless (and who could blame you? Smaller, lighter, the huge EVF advantage, better video, more features like IBIS, etc)... ...then Micro 43 combines both Olympus and Panasonic ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions, Labe. I will check 'em out!
  • Thanks Mark. I will go through the camera feature search in closer detail. My initial quick look at it did not seem very promising. Yeah, my friend must have meant video output. He's interested in ...
  • Created discussion thread Does this camera exist?
    Hi everyone. My friend is looking for a small and light camera with decent IQ and video that also has microphone and video input sockets. He is a cyclist/hiker/camper so light weight is of ...
  • Both the Olympus 75mm and the Panasonic 42.5mm were excellently reviewed. The Olympus 75mm was acclaimed as being optically stunning and one of the best M43 lenses ever made.
  • What is your budget? And what country are you in? In most territories, currently the best bargains for budding photographers are in Micro 43. Specifically the Olympus EM10 II and the Panasonic ...
  • Close, but no cigar. EDIT: Darn it, I didn't realize that J Peters had already beaten me to this joke!
  • That would be great! Extremely tempting...
  • You won't carry a set of DSLR zooms anywhere near as small and light as the M43 Olympus 9-18mm, the Panasonic 12-32mm and 35-100mm. And crucially, there are hardly any fast primes in Nikon APSC. ...
  • There are very few gaps left in the Micro 43 lens eco system. This new Sigma 56mm f1.4 will fill one of them, if the price is right (Fingers crossed!) I agree that there is also room for a 7mm ...
  • To someone like myself, just skim reading because he is genuinely interested in the Sigma 56mm f1.4 on M43... ...the childish one here is the guy ending his posts with a hearty "LOL".
  • I don't think the difference between 16 MP and 24 MP is significant in itself, unless you intend on blowing up a print to fill an entire art gallery wall or something. 16 MP should be enough for ...
  • As you shoot still subjects like landscape and cityscape, in low light conditions, the IBIS of Panasonic easily trumps the high ISO advantage of the Fujifilm. If you shot moving subjects like ...
  • Based on the Amazon France prices, if you don't mind substituting your single 12-60mm lens for a pair of lenses (both excellent optics, super portable and giving a longer telephoto reach), the ...
