Re: No panning Mode

Iíd say the general consensus is that you might as well leave it on IS Auto and donít worry. Older cameras had trouble making the decision, but the latest Olympus bodies seem very well able to judge...

Re: Rachel

I like this a lot.
Is it in a lift? I keep wondering if Iíd crop the white section at the top off, but I think overall itís better left in.

Re: Updated Olympus lens "roadmap"

Doesnít look like the 12mm f1.2 fits in there; in fact (if Iím interpreting it correctly) it doesnít seem to contain anything new at all on the prime front.

Re: Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

A nice set.

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

Yes, I see both the bodies weigh around 2.25lbs, which is also extremely heavy in comparison with the Z6/7, A9/A7Riii, Canon R etc. Itís around the same as a D850.

Re: Resolution and Image Quality

Seems very self-limiting to me, Derek.
Havn't you ever learned to appreciate something by learning more about it?
