Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

It looks good to me so just need to know the specs and how much better it is over the OMD MK II and of cause the rumored 400mm be it prime or zoom so a bit of a waiting game .

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Thinking about this
I don't use a grip but As the new camera is aimed at sport and wild life ( I shoot the later ) It wont bother me to have a fixed grip it may well help balance the longer lenses...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Actually, I measured the E-M1 Mk II + HLD-9 (height) & it is:
134.1 mm (W) 140.2 mm (H) 68.9...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I doubt it will be as big as a DSLR or even a APSC Perhaps a little bit bigger than the omd mII with grip .
I don't see that as been big by any means .

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

Re: Camera Conspiracies and the EM1x

Surprisingly you can claw 1 stop back in some situations and fill the frame omd mkII 300f4 / owls coming towards you / with the 1dxmkII and 600f4 mkII you often need a 1.4tc even then at 50yds or...

Re: Camera Conspiracies and the EM1x

Sure it will be bigger but no were near the size / weight of my 1dx mkII so no worries from me .
CAF is the key thing for me for birds in flight .

Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

As Tord says AF-C is very poor even with my top of the range Canon lenses it just not worth trying -single AF is fine.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Have to say I really like it but I do use a 1dx mkII and im sure it will be smaller and lighter than that but it will have to have improved CAF over the omd mkII .

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

It depends on how much spare cash you have Dave, 1 stop better and better CAF for birds in flight would interest me even at 3k that's still half what my 1dxmkII cost .

Re: Auntie Can't Keep a Secret

I really think in this day and age you should be able to opt out of watching the BBC and not have to have a license.
when you see what some of the BBC earn it really is a disgrace.
