  • Replied in Don't bother
    Well, it's back to the drawing board. I rechecked my "good deal" and the 14-150 was NOT the new version. I think my original plan to get the G85 w/12-60, then add the 14-150 ll is probably the way ...
  • Well, I'll probably get the EM10,......BUT, I don't kid myself. My camera body GAS seems to be INCURABLE. Oh well, there are worse illnesses,.... Thanks for your comments! Jack
  • Created discussion thread OM-D E-M10 Comments Requested
    Background,...I was interested in buying the new Pany G85 and wanted a versatile WR lens to pair with it. A helpful forum member suggested the Oly 14-150 ll. That seemed like what I was looking ...
  • Hi Guys, Thanks for the confirmation of the WR on the 12-60! Willing,...I appreciate the suggestion of the Oly lens. I'll look into that. It's more my speed than the 12-60. I have found that the ...
  • Created discussion thread Pany G85 w/12-60, both WR?
    I'm considering the G85, which I understand is weather resistant. It would seem that the 12-60 PZ lens, offered with it, would also be WR. I can't find anything in the promo literature that says ...
  • What a picture! Wow! Jack
  • Hi Folks, What a great forum! I can always count on you to come up with plenty of suggestions, reminders, and recommendations. I had not considered the Sigma 50-500mm, but that seems to be an ...
  • Hi Dave, Thanks for all the input,...... I'm back to the drawing board for awhile after handling a DSLR with a long zoom at a local camera store. I'm a hand held shooter, period, and can't see ...
  • Hi Dave, Thanks for that "long lens" list! That will be very helpful to me. It looks like I may have to leave Pentax to get something I want in zoom and something affordable. Hard to understand why ...
  • Thanks for that link to the D7100 buffer, Nick. Very helpful. Jack
  • Thanks, Nick,.....so far, several members have mentioned the smaller buffer in the D7100. Does anyone have a number of  burst shots that I can expect to get? This is not a a high priority unless ...
  • Created discussion thread Long Zoom for Pentax System?
    I like my K50 and get good results with the 55-300WR lens. However, I would like to add a very long zoom, such as the 150-600mm. Unfortunately, it seems this lens is not made with the Pentax mount. ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions, folks. Good stuff to be thinking about,... Jack
  • Thanks for the comments on the 150-600mm. I'll look at the Tamron. My current DSLR is a Pentax and there is no suitable long zoom made for it, so i will be getting a new camera. I'm attracted to ...
  • Created discussion thread D7100, D5500, or?
    Hello Nikon Friends, I have, or have had, DSLRs, M43s etc. I prefer several "enthusiast" cameras to one more expensive flagship model. I'm not hung up on the ultimate IQ and simply cannot bring ...
  • Created discussion thread Long Zoom for Canon DSLR
    Hi Folks, I hope this is a good forum to post this request for information. I use several camera systems and find strengths in each of them. Photography is a recreation for me and I'm not hung up ...
  • Yes! I clearly recall thinking I wanted a fast and wide prime lens for my G7. Then I thought,....why not just get the LX100 and not have to diddle around with lens changes. Jack
  • Hi Jim, Now that I've found a use for my LX100, I do expect to enjoy it. The camera itself is really amazing. The lens, though a little short for me, is so sharp within it's focal length, that I ...
  • Created discussion thread Finally,...found a use for my LX100!
    I've had the LX100 for six months or so and have been wondering why in the world I bought it. Although I think the direct control system is the best of any camera I have, and the jpegs are as good ...
  • I shoot strictly jpeg and am very happy with the colors. I use standard mode, but I bump the saturation. There are many choices in the FZ cameras to get basically whatever color suits you. I like ...
