Re: the 60mm f2.8 macro my thoughts

I keep flip flipping about whether I should get this lens or not. I really miss my old Sigma 150 (pretty much my only regret about ditching my DSLR).

I hate the by wire MF on a few of the lenses...

The 150 is the only lens I miss from my Nikon days. Just fantastic.

Re: EM-5 II new firmware update 1.1

Do they mean the funny artifacts from subject movement in point 3, or 'traditional' noise?

Re: Advice re wide angle for M4/3 wanted please.

Re: Advice re wide angle for M4/3 wanted please.

The two images above show the normal LR rendering, and one with further correction using an additional lens profile for the 9-18 that I must have downloaded from who-knows-where at some point....

Re: Advice re wide angle for M4/3 wanted please.

Oh yeah, i also meant to say not to be too afraid of talk of corner softness with the 9-18. This is exacerbated by the built in profile corrections on the lens, which are often automatically applied...

Re: Advice re wide angle for M4/3 wanted please.

I like my 9-18 too. I consider the IQ perfectly OK, if not stunning, but as an overall package (size, weight, ability to take cheaply sized filters) I'm very happy with it.

Re: Image Stabilisation when on Tripod?

Yeah the accepted wisdom is to disable it for tripod use, although again I've never objectively checked to see if it makes a difference. I also have to admit to leaving it on sometimes when doing...

Re: My first E-M5 Mark II shots

I'm pretty sure I read that if shooting high res RAW then it also stores the 'base' image within the main file, so you can use that to mask in areas with movement (at a standard 16mp res obviously).

Re: Video on MFT

I love having video on my m43 bodies. I don't do anything commercial or arty with it, but my other hobby is fishkeeping and having the capacity to film my fish to show other hobbyists is great.

I don't know if this is something you ever shoot, but I'm dying to see some long exposure seascapes/landscapes with the high res mode... something like 4-8 seconds per exposure,...

Re: EM 10 IS noise

Yeah it is a bit disconcerting at first. I got used to it very quickly on the E-M5 though, never give it a second thought now.
