  • Back from the dark side to E-M1X

    I moved to Nikon D3s & D4 after the disappointing experience with E-M1 Mk1. I thought long and hard before buy Nikon as I had been an Olympus user for years. I have the Mk1 as a walk around camera. D4 too heavy when out walking. In July I got the chance to try the E-M1X at Croft for the BTCC. I was impressed. So when I saw the latest deal on LCE. So this morning I went online and purchased one. Need now to sel my Nikon gear 2 bodies 5 lens and accessories. So glad to be back. Also this is by far the best camera forum.

      The main issue was the auto focus, I do motorsport and aircraft and it performance was poor. I read many threads from bird photographers with similar problems. Also high ISO quality was not good. So I jump ship to D4 & Sigma 150-600sport & 120-300. But after trying the E-M1X at Croft I knew it was the way to go.
