Re: Hello from East Sussex

Welcome. Nothing to fear in micro for thirds. Buy on old EM5 and give it a try. They can be found at very reasonable prices.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

Battery life is very little to do with the number of shots taken. It's primarily driven by how long the camera is turned on. I've shots thousands on some occasions and low hundreds on others.

Re: Is it only the British ?

Re: ChromeBooks?

As everyone says, Chromebooks run Chrome OS which is a Linux variant. In principle you will be able to run any Linux app on it (e.g. Darktable etc). The later Adobe apps will work on it, but not...

Re: Panny 12-32mm, bargain at Bristol Cameras.

The 12-32 is the better lens too (and it goes to 12mm which is definitely a big deal in my eyes :)).

Re: Upgrade to weather sealed

Here's my take:

- There's virtually nothing between the E-M1 and E-M5ii in terms of IQ in normal circumstances, but for long exposures (30s or greater), the E-M1 is WORSE - you get terrible chroma...

Re: Sony RX100

I had one for a short while. Good IQ, but handling was atrocious. I think an LX100 would make a better option (if you can get one that focuses properly at longer distances). Either that or a...

Re: Rumours that Sony has made a 32MP MFT sensor

If you want free, then either Darktable or Rawtherapee are the way to go.
