Re: Buttons..What do you do with them?

That's a personal opinion though Steve. I'm quite familiar with the old style camera controls, but find the dual dial-on-the-topplate approach of modern digital cameras much faster and more...

Re: Buttons..What do you do with them?

Film is for covering food in the fridge. Camera design went bananas when roll film was introduced. Why don't we dispense with all this flexible film nonsense and the silly little camera boxes that...

Re: Buttons..What do you do with them?

From memory...

- Back-button - back-button focus (!)
- Lever around back button - switch between CAF and SAF
- Video button - enable exposure/HDR bracket (set to 5-shot, 5-stop bracket)
-...

Re: Updated Olympus lens "roadmap"

Very odd. Overlaps aplenty in the "Pro" space (esp zooms), but nothing to upgrade/replace the lower cost lenses. The 12/2, 17/1.8, 9-18, 12-50 etc could really do with a refresh.

Re: 40-150 Pro vs. 50-200 SWD

Worst characteristic of the 40-150 IMHO is the harsh OOF blur. For portraits, I think that would matter.

Re: 40-150 Pro vs. 50-200 SWD

Contrast is slightly higher in the 40-150, but otherwise at this size it's hard to make a call on resolution. The other potential negative of the 40-150 - overly busy OOF blur - isn't evidenced on...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

These results pretty much confirm my own thoughts. The 300 carries the TC well. I had no complaints about loss of sharpness when I used it with the TC. However, with the 40-150, the TC definitely...

Re: Hello from Australia

Welcome. Another vote from me to keep the E-M5. It's still capable of taking great photographs and will be useful if you ever need a second body. And of course, it's a backup in case of the worst...

Re: New firmware finally imminent?

That's an interesting use of the Fn lever. Personally, I use it to control AF - down = SAF, up = CAF.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

The 40-150 with the 1.4 TC is already showing notable sharpness fall off IMHO. It will be interesting to see how it performs with the 2.0 TC. My suspicion is that it won't be that good.

I can see the wider point that the report's authors are trying to make.

In the developed world the average person lives about 80 years and during that time consumes more resources and produces...

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...

That's quite a shot Andy! Good to hear that you're finding the X works for you.
