Re: Oly 17mm f1.8...'little gem'

Personally, I think the 17/1.8 is a decent enough lens. My current copy (second) is ok wide open and pretty sharp by f4. OTOH, I remember comparing it to the Sony 35/2.8 and the Sony was notably...

Re: Playing around - first trip out with my OMD EM-5

Very nice. The EM5 is a great camera and more than capable of delivering excellent results - as your images show :)

Re: New camera - what do you do first?

I've never read a manual for a camera! Personally, I just make sure the battery is charged, grab a cuppa and start playing!

Re: New 12-200

I know it's an unfair comparison, but you can pick up the 12-100 from a number of grey importers for around 850. The 12-200 is 800 at present. If you were buying today you'd get the 12-100 for...

Re: Oly 17mm f1.8...'little gem'

You can find used ones for less than 250 Dave. That's the best way to go.

Re: New 12-200

Nice street shots. But, I must say this is the third set of images I've seen from the 12-200 and in all of them I've thought the images looked dull/muddy. Maybe I'm being too critical? A good lens...

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

I'll just add that the tripod-variant of hi-res is somewhat different since in that version the camera is using the IBIS to move the subject by pixel-level amounts between 8 separate shots. The...

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

OK, maybe a bit of explanation is needed...

1) Stacking of images with the same exposure to reduce noise

When you stack multiple images of the same exposure, you blend them such that each...

BTW - this is a good post on stacking:

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

Indeed. That will do the trick. Noise will be reduced quite significantly - but I realise I made a mistake on the original post. The ISO will be lowered by 1/2 for each image stacked - so by...

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

I've tried running different systems (in the digital age), but it doesn't work for me. Having a choice makes me dither as to which to take and then causes angst later when I wish I'd taken the...

Re: Sad, if true

It wouldn't surprise me if there's no Pen-F II. Personally, I'd rather see an EPL-10 with a small EVF and cheaper than the F. That would make more sense in terms of providing something different to...

Crickey Dave - a couple of hours isn't really a fair trial.

Re: E-M1 ii & 12-40 for 850

Some people just aren't trustworthy and it's best avoiding them. Maybe you'll miss the occasional good deal, but frankly the pain of dealing with ar$eholes makes paying a little more worth it.

You can get a screw on metal slotted hood for less than a tenner on eBay.

Re: Official PEN-F....RIP.

I have one, but I agree. Olympus has a habit of over pricing cameras, especially the Pens. The EP5 was a fantastic camera for its time, but I think its disappointing sales were in part due to crazy...

Re: M1X..Harsh review, realistic perhaps?

I suspect part of this reviewer's criticisms stem from not really understanding how the CAF works and how to get the best from it. I only partly blame him on this since once again we have almost...
