Re: About to buy a Pen-F

Ah yes...you appear to be right.
Not a camera that I am familiar with. I started on OM 10s, then went to OM2s.

Re: About to buy a Pen-F

I noticed that there are quite a few Pen F bodies for sale from japan on Ebay at ridiculously low prices...60 or there about.
I have bought old lenses from there in the past, and paid import duties...

Re: Good lightweight, smallish theft-proof camera bag?

Funnily enough, I have actually ordered a pacsafe v6.
I use Crumplers usually...and still will do at home as I like them, but I am going to Barcelona and Lisbon and want to enjoy them whilst feeling...

Re: Good lightweight, smallish theft-proof camera bag?

That's very kind indeed...and it does look like the sort of thing that I am after, though it is maybe slightly too small. I do want small, but maybe half as big again as that.
I'll see if there's...

Good lightweight, smallish theft-proof camera bag?

I will be in a few Mediterranean cities in the summer, which should be fun but I want to protect against pickpockets and theft in general.

I won't be walking around with my heavy kit, but will...

Re: Thumbs up for the 75-300

Yeah, I am seriously considering this lens now.

I have a Pen EP5 with pancake zoom and will probably put my kit 40-150 in my smaller camera bag with that, whilst using this with the 12-40mm on my...

Re: mft 75-300 II, mft 14-42 EZ, mft Samyang 7.5mm

I may be interested in the 75-300mm. It's the mk11 m43 model, right?

I have the 43 model but want to sell it and fancy the new version with the new coating on.

How is the condition?

Re: Zuiko 75-300mm lens

Yes, that's the lens - the 70-300.

With the kit 40-150mm, I find the lens is great up to about 100mm, after which the results are quite soft.

I use it mainly for landscape work and folks have...

Re: Zuiko 75-300mm lens

How long has the mk11 been out?
I have the 4/3 version which is nice - but it's heavy and it does not auto-focus as well as a m4/3 lens.
I would like to have better optics than the kit lens for a...

Re: New lens for landscape work?

Perhaps that is an option.

I wonder whether the 100mm will be enough extra range to justify getting rid of the wonderful 12-40mm.

I need to do some thinking, but IQ is first consideration,...

Re: New lens for landscape work?

Is it ok for hand held shots in good light and if so at what shutter speed, allowing for IS?

I don't want to use a tripod for most shots if I'm on the move.

New lens for landscape work?

I am currently using the following kit:
E M1 mk1 and EP5 with 12-40mm, 9-18mm (43), Samyang fisheye, 70-300 (43) and 40-150 4.0, Sigma 60mm

I take mainly landscapes and find that the 12-40 is...

Re: DXO Photolab

Yep. I downloaded the trial Elite 11 and loved it and I like Photo loab even more.

I am not tempted to spend the extra on the two add ons, but I think it's a great software package.

Re: DxO Pro 11 - which files do you keep and other questions?

Thanks, Andy, I appreciate that.

My settings are now not too dissimilar to yours for my own preset for landscapes. I've got 60 on sharpening level and 16 on microcontrast and 20 on vibrancy. I...

Re: DxO Pro 11 - which files do you keep and other questions?

Great stuff. This is the kind of thing that helps a lot.

I know how to set up presets, but can you overwrite for a default preset and if so how? I'll add sharpening and clearview and can adjust...

I have just downloaded the trial of this and am enjoying it very much. I am certainly getting better RAW processing than with Elements 15, though still use the latter program for some edits.

Re: CaptureOne 10.2 available

I don't do a huge amount of editing. I never go near layers. From what I can gather, a lot of other people who take primarily landscapes don't either. I do clone and brush out a few things, but...

I am currently thinking of getting a much better RAW processor than Elements 15. I bought this as an all rounder and it will continue to be used for several purposes, I'm sure.

Re: Starting out manipulating images

I believe that Lightroom 6 is now on about version 6.9.

Presumably if I bought 6 out the box, it would upgrade online?
