Morvegil: Nice, but M is a dead mount

BrentSchumer it does not have a full lens line up. No short or medium telephoto prime, the telephoto zoom is considered poor compared to the other few M lenses available. DP review amongst others have said that Canon seem to have little inclination to add to the line up.

Noisy and soft even at base ISO(including the prime lens shots). A real shame as the asking price is very reasonable .

Michael Berg: In #6, how do you deal with the issue of permissions and publishing photos of people that way?

Did the photographer wake the woman up and get her permission to use the photos?

As far as I understand it ,in the UK you can photograph anyone doing anything provided it is in a public space and you do not require permission. Obviously you need to use common-sense when it comes to children etc.

One of the best set I have seen for a long time. For me number 4 is the standout shot. The winner ,as mentioned is a composite and I suspect part of the reason this photo won is because of the message the photographer wanted to convey and his clever approach to achieve his aim; however judging the photo alone, it is far from the best here.

surrealalex: Cellphone like quality jpgs.
Strange digital pixelation around edges.
Otherwise a HELLISH noise floor at base ISO.
Small detail GONE.

Facepalm and fail.

The creativity of the photographer however is quite good.

"focal yoke" what do MFT files/images look like to you? Do you ever use them in high quality publications?

"Surrealalex" The girl's eyelashes at ISO 200 would utterly refute your derogatory hyperbole.

Kit Lens Avenger: The PopSci DIY sequence appears to validate the IBIS while their oatmealy textures at high mag denounce the sensor.

M43 is such a schizophrenic format. Sometimes exquisite, sometimes 10 year-old bridge camera.

Up to and including ISO 800 they are more than adequate and don't forget that Oly' has some very fast high quality reasonably priced primes. With the quality of the IBIS and those lenses you rarely need to go above 800.

forest dream: Please review E-M10 Mark IV with 14-42 kit lens.
How many consumer who bought pricey "Pro" lens will use entry-level camera body?

Excellent range of fast primes at very reasonable prices as well as the pro' series. Olympus has one of the most complete lens line-ups out there.

In reply to:

martink3S04: I wonder how this compares to the Olympus 4/3 50-200ED? That lens has near identical specs on paper. I have that lens (a steal at $350 used) and aside from its very crappy AF on EM5mkii and its bulk (and needed adapter), it takes gorgeous pictures.

Thanks for your reply. I am not sure if the focusing mechanism was not changed at some stage, mine certainly hunts on the OMD-1 Mk1 and OMD-5 Mk-1, so I use it in manual mode and focus peaking, obviously not for fast moving shots but excellent for everything else.

15 at first glance you could take as a dinosaur which presumably its ancestors were. Fairly frightening image, very clever.

If you have thousands of pounds of a manufacturers lenses I suspect for many Pros' there would have to be a very significant hike in quality to justify any change.

entoman: "Time for Tea" is the clear winner for me. ... and quite appropriate for a British photography award!

Most of the other images, although mostly very good, are what I would regard as being "advanced camera club level" though, rather than outstanding.

Poolside is a superb "food" photo. A lot of thought has gone into it and is very well executed. This oozes professionalism.

In reply to:

superpig000: Hope Tamron brings this lens to Canon M users too. Would fit the current lineup perfectly.

see my post above. Cannot understand why Canon ,having introduced the M series with some good quality and small lenses having nothing to offer in the short telephoto range. Their standard zoom is too short and too slow. The 55-200 gets a bad press. This Tamron would be perfect,but will probably not happen. I guess Canon have lost interest in the M models ,why produce an M6 with no built in EVF? It is supposed to be aimed at more serious users than the M50 which does get and EVF. Nuts IMHO.

TonyPM: Would be a great lens on Fujifilm, Nikon and Canon apsc mirrorless cameras.

Tony PM, especially for M50/M6 Canon where there is nothing available at the short telephoto end. Canon just can't seem to be bothered with expanding this range,why is beyond me.

Zvonimir Tosic: Couple of typos in the article:
Towards the bottom, it should state 29mm F0.8, not 28mm …
Also, every camera is 'a full frame' camera, because every camera comes with the entire sensor designed for its image frame, not partly chopped off. Technically correct statement should be, "an equivalent focal length of a 58mm lens on a 135-format camera". Ta.

Xepillin,I doubt Panasonic will bail out . They have big competition in the FF market but have effectively a near monopoly in the MFT market unless the company taking over Olympus keep up to speed(which according to others is not what they are good at). Although for you and many enthusiasts FF is the only game in town there are many more "punters" out there who have little interest in the technology but would like a "proper camera that is not to heavy/big". I gather the Oly E-PL series still sell well in Japan.I have used Olys for the past 15 years and have found,as most have, that printing to A3+ keeping the iso below 1600 produces very satisfactory results. I suspect few people regularly print larger than this. Yes FF is better but that is not the point.

In reply to:

whitelens: I hope this lens can do better @ 500mm than shown in image # 16.
That shot looks like it was taken with an instamatic!

but what you are seeing is something taken at 1000mm not 500 in 35mm terms. The atmospheric effect will be substantial.

I take it that that focal lengths quoted are native to the lens and not the 35mm equivalent. In that case we are looking at a number of shots taken at 800mm-1000mm equivalents here. However good the lens there is little you can do about the atmospherics.

Composition,aesthetic quality and or message is in the eye of the beholder,NOT the AI of the computer.
