Re: Clicking sound from lens iris?

Mine gives a little ticking also from this feature. It's barely louder than my vintage watch, so i prefer to keep on the flicker reduction feature. :-D

Re: E-M1+12-40=2lb 10oz..Nikon D750+24-85=?

My oly feels like a toy after using a Nikon FF camera. It's so much lighter and smaller.
I think the 12-40 rivals or beats any of the FF zooms i've used quality wise. Photos do appear flatter with...

Re: A Wheel Problem.

Good to hear the service to return stuff is working well. My down button on my EM-1 has been sticky and requiring a few presses to register. I'd put off contacting them because I presumed it was...

Re: E-M1 not vs, but also D750.

The Nikon Lens is sharpest at around 5.6. It's sterling for the centre 2/3 from about 2.8 - I'd presume the issue is DOF/shake rather than sharpness.- The Oly lens starts hitting diffraction up...

Re: E-M1 not vs, but also D750.

I own the 12-40 and the Nikon 50 1.8 on a 16MP Nikon DF. The 12-40 is sharper to my eyes by a fair margin. The Sigma art 50 1.4 is on the same ballpark though.

I've always been impressed with the...

Re: Moving from Windows to Mac

Hardware manufacturers remove various ports for different reasons.

The Ethernet component itself takes up unnecessary space on the board for little relative use on a non professional Wintel...

Re: Moving from Windows to Mac

I wouldn't know, but MS certainly need to offer a similar service to have a chance in retaining the consumer market share of that demographic who can afford to consider Apple products.

Re: Thinking of taking the plunge on an E-M1

6MP would be more than enough for my needs. I had a M8 which was 10MP and the pictures that came out of that were breathtaking. I only changed it to improve its crappy ISO (CCD) but otherwise it was...

Re: Thinking of taking the plunge on an E-M1

I often felt that the EM-1 had a lot of noise, but then i moved to a higher DPI screen and the noise is unnoticeable (currently my DPI is now 157).
I'm not sure what DPI you guys would use on your...

Re: Thinking of taking the plunge on an E-M1

These releases won't shake up the market. Maybe in the super enthusiast mirrorless scene but outside of that bubble noone could give a monkeys @ that price point.

I've used a few Rollei (Japan), Hoya & BW Filters on my lenses,.

Re: Need some M1 parts info

Cool Jerry, yes, I recognise that a lot of people would require the strap also and other bits, just for my purposes they were unnecessary. I had never used the tiny flash to control an RC one so...

Re: Need some M1 parts info

Please take my statements on usage as opinions rather than hard facts!

I'm glad these bits get some use for others!

Hi there,

Mine came with a strap, some little cover bits that go over the hot shoe, a small flash, and a couple of manuals, superfluous stuff really.

Note- it doesnt typically come with the...
