A day in the dust w/e-M1 Mk2, MC20 and 40-150pro

After visiting Nellis AFB and getting some horrendous photos with the MC-20 attached to the 40-150 Pro, most likely due to sun and atmosphere I had another go at the Desert Races. Any oof most...

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

Sorry for the misunderstanding. It is what I MISS about the UK. Plenty of shops that took used equipment in part exchange, and sold used equipment.

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

I had the opportunity to make another trip to Vegas. I needed to sell my remaining 4/3 lenses, and unlike the UK, I had to wait until a buyer came to town. The camera shops there can't, by law,...

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?

I agree. I had the E-30 that had the screens like we have today. Then the E-PL1 and E-PL5, and E-M10. they all had the tilting screen, at first I was not a fan because the screen was always...

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?

Not sure what you expect. I thought the MP race was discussed to death. I agree that with the increase from 16 to 20MP the image quality did not improve all that much probably because we are...

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

I did not toss the cactus wren photo as I had thought. I will leave it up to the group to decide on the focus. Shutter priority, 1/2000s, 75-300mm @300 wide open, original image about a stop and a...

Hello all it has been a while. There are not a lot of birds flying here in Arizona other than the rather ugly California Condor, so for me testing out the new firmware has been difficult. I did...

Re: Lightroom as we know it is now Lightroom Classic CC

Affinity photo? I have it on the laptop, not played with it much because I am used to LR. Only $40. I am angered by the move to the cloud. I do not like it, it hooks the customer for life.

Young ones.

Re: My 'New' 130 shot E-M1

My PL5 had 100 plus, my E-M1 had 149...I think. Both from SRS, both straight out of the box...new, bought them at the store. Yours could be a return....or the tester at the factory didn't rest it. ...

Re: Grip for the E-M10

Had both, prefer the cheaper one. More to hang on to, easy access to battery, but a bit cold in winter time.

Re: E-M1 and Sony A7R comparison (warning - lots of images)

I think the picture of the tree top is a DOF issue or a missed focus issue. The top of the shed looks sharper in on crop than the other, or do I need to clean my glasses?

Good comparison though,...

Re: Olympus reveals optically stabilised m.Zuiko 300mm f/4 telephoto

I don't know, I was saying hypothetically if there is such a lens. Light gathering will be the same, DOF will be F8. I think that is still or can be very thin at 300mm. Either way the Oly will be...

Re: Olympus reveals optically stabilised m.Zuiko 300mm f/4 telephoto

Re: Olympus reveals optically stabilised m.Zuiko 300mm f/4 telephoto

What do I think of the price? Well that's a chunk of change! When first announced and revealed I thought 1800-2000, maybe less. Then it was delayed, and re-engineered, and showed up with IS, and...

Re: FF lens on a crop body

That is my understanding, if the image circle covers the sensor then it is or can be considered FF. I think DM was referring to true FF from the old days.
