    I thought that was only necessary for legacy 4/3 lenses that use phase detection exclusively.

    Have I made the right decision buying an EM-1 Mark ii with 12-100 mm F4

    I am with you Steve. After getting married, my disposable income for photography took a big hit. Now I use our toddler as the reason I need to upgrade the gear -- better AFC and continuous shooting!

    Have I made the right decision buying an EM-1 Mark ii with 12-100 mm F4

    I bought so many lenses for the K5, including a few Sigma and Tamron f2.8 constant aperture zooms. Ran so many tests. Maybe I just oixel Maybe I pixel peeped too much. But I grew frustrated after a while and went back to mirrorless cameras.

    Have I made the right decision buying an EM-1 Mark ii with 12-100 mm F4

    @Steve Moorhouse I haven't read through the entire thread, so pardon if I am being repetitive. I did own both cameras at one point in time, and did have the 18-135 for the K5. My biggest beef against the K5 was my constant need to perform micro-adjustments to get pinpoint sharp focus, whether...

    Proof that E-M1ii small focus points work

    Maybe with phase detection, creating custom focus zones is an impossibility. I know Fuji doesn't offer that. I don't think Sony does either. And I'm pretty sure no DSLR allows for that. That being said, I really like that feature in the Panasonics. If Oly would just add a 4X4, that would be...

    Proof that E-M1ii small focus points work

    Makes you wonder why Oly omitted the small points from the Mark 2. Now if Oly would just give us a few more zone focus areas that are bigger than the 9 pointer ...

    Panasonic G9 | Panny 35-100 vs Olympus 40-150 Pro

    Gator, check the Mirrorlessons Comparison website my Matthieu and Heather. There is a G9 vs EM1ii comparison with a discussion about using the Oly Pro 40-150 on the G9. Very worthwhile read.

    E-M1mkii firmware 2.0

    Nice testing! I appreciate it! Did you get to test with the subject headed towards you (without you getting run over over course)?, or mostly towards you? If yes, can you please share your results?

    E-M1mkii firmware 2.0

    So glad the AF points dance around now. I found it counterintuitive when the active AF point was locked on the first point the AF locked on.

    A7 mk iii - looks really tasty, and the price is tempting

    Sony primes are only small (relatively) when their aperture is 1.8 or slower. None of the 1.4 stuff is small. That being said, I'm perfectly happy with 1.8 combined with a superior sensor.

    A7 mk iii - looks really tasty, and the price is tempting

    I was an early adopter of the original A7. The shutter in it felt like a jackhammer. I hope Sony has improved the shutter since.

    E-M1mkii firmware 2.0

    Is there any official confirmation from O about this firmware update, or is this based on "rumors" only?

    A7 mk iii - looks really tasty, and the price is tempting

    The A7iii is priced competitively with the high end m4/3 and Fuji stuff. It's a tempting proposition especially with the good AF and high ISO performance. But just like the original A7 that I still have, Sony cameras to me are uninspiring from an interface, ergonomics and aesthetic standpoint.

    Panasonic G9 Reviews & Experiences

    Stepping back makes a difference, because of deeper depth of field? Maybe I'm having a hard time distinguishing between softness vs out of focus. My primary point of reference are blurry eye lashes and eyebrows even with shutter speeds fast enough to freeze movements (even though my subject...

    Maybe I'm reading it wrong, or there are sublevels of predicted focusing that the manual doesn't discuss?

    G9 with birds

    Looking at page 117 of the advanced manual, it seems that Balanced vs. Focus vs. Release doesn't make any difference when using the camera in AFC/AFF and burst speeds of SH1, SH2, SH1 pre, SH2 pre, or H. The manual simply says that under these settings, the auto focus logic uses "predicted...

    Panasonic G9 Reviews & Experiences

    I am getting a lot of just slightly out of focus photos of my 19 month old toddler even when he's not running at full speed, including when he's just sitting there playing with toys. Under daylight, using AFC at 20 fps, I get maybe 20% perfectly focused images of his face. This happens whether I...

    Panasonic G9 Reviews & Experiences

    There is a sub-menu during playback of high speed bursts that let's the user go frame by frame, and which allows for enlarging each of the frames individually. It wasn't very intuitive to get to that screen initially.

    Camera upgrade

    Welcome to the forum! If you are interested in nicer video, the EM10iii is the only one that has 4K. The sensor on all your three choices is pretty much the same. I believe the image stabilization on the EM5ii is better than the EM10ii. Not sure about EM10iii. Auto focus is the same contrast...

    Zone focus - when to use this shape or that shape

    On Panasonic cameras, the user can create different shapes and sizes for zone focus (box, diamond). On the EM1ii, there are options for a 3x3 square grid or a 5 point zone shaped like a plus sign. How do the different shapes of the focus zone assist the user? When would you use the plus sign vs...

    One week into the G9. A rolling review.

    Can the top panel LCD display the AF points chosen? I think I've seen that in some DSLRs .

    Do not shoot a Nikon D500

    Please read carefully. An "ever faster toddler" means that the toddler is getting faster, presumably as he gets older. I didn't say that a toddler is faster than a BIF. In fact, one of the next sentences reads "But I suppose even the D500 would make life easier on the not as fast subjects like a...

    Do not shoot a Nikon D500

    Gulp ... here I am trying to decide between the EM1ii vs. G9. Although for me, I'm not taking photos of BIF, but rather, of an ever faster toddler. But I suppose even the D500 would make life easier on the not as fast subjects like a toddler. Then thrown in the less inexpensive Fuji XT2 (or...

    G9 with birds

    Very very helpful! Thank you! Do you change any of the tracking sensitivity? Any particular reason you chose the mechanical shutter at 9 fps vs the e-shutter at 20 fps? How is the infamous "flutter" that DPReview discussed while shooting CAF at high speed? Thank you!

    Olympus OMD EM1 Mark ii on sale today for $1849.99

    The plan worked ... I finally got an EM1ii (with grip) ... The "sale" sure didn't last long. I guess it was designed to pull over the people who were interested on the G9, but couldn't find it in stock.

    Official Panasonic G9 Image thread.

    It looks good. I like it better than the typical Oly skin tone, which looks a little bit more yellowish. This skin tone reminds me of my Fuji XT10's.
