    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    its always amuzing when someone (passive agressive) labels a post which presents facts as "sad" ... unless they're saying they're sad that their unsupportable pre-conceptions are challenged by evidence. Like I've been saying Sad should go and people should have the capacity for actual engagement...

    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    I'd 100% agree with that. If I didn't have a compact m43 camera (say I only had a GH3 or EM1 or something SLR-alike) I'd be very tempted by the 12-40 as its now well priced enough to seriously consider. Its just that I'm sure it's not going to keep my compact m43 compact ... be the same...

    Something nobody has mentioned in backups is the need for a differential backup took in Windows. I can't speak for Mac as I wouldn't own one, but it's time machine is handy. However one needs to keep a history of backups (as mentioned because virus alert is always just the canary) and so stuff...

    I don't, particularly when they are about how full frame is better or worse than m43, but others may :)

    What do you love about your camera/lens?

    What I love about my camera and lens combo is that it enables me to take great images of places, events, stuff or just simply be creative. I love that its compact and I love that it cost so little that I'm totally willing to take it everywhere. I love that its about the most sophisticated and...

    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    yes, that's what I meant. Weirdly many people seem to say "going up" when its a fraction so a change from 125 to 500 is less time, but people seem to me to call that going up (probably forgetting that its going down) Heh

    Using the in cam panoramic feature

    Hi well to me all the modes are valid methods on "how it was intended to be used" ... none specifically more compellingly "right". that may be, but for me I find them quite constraining. I prefer to look and think about what my needs are, this often doesn't take more than fractions of a...

    Using the in cam panoramic feature

    I like it too, but have not really taken to the modes. I just take the shots using M (and of course selecting the WB I want and the ISO I want manually too), although I often take 3 or 4 portrait orientations depending what I want in width, almost makes my GF-1 + P20 a Full Frame kit ;-) I use...

    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    quick question. Have your found that shutter speeds have gone up given the same "ISO Settings" and aperture value due to the removal of the IR filters from the sensor?

    Are you still using your 14mm f2.5?

    sorry ... wasn't trying to rub your nose in it. I've noted that many people actually think that the GWC-1 changes the P14 to be somehow a slower lens. I've not measured transmission ... which isn't a bad experiment now that I think about it.

    Showcase Panasonic 20mm f/1.7

    Nice shots, reminds me of Joensuu Finland, built on a river and also very Scandinavian influenced of course. I lived there for a while. Try Snapseed on a good mid tablet. Much truer colours than any laptop.

    I don't think you need to do much there to get the grass to look like that. It's a very lush area atop a ridge which is about the highest in that ridge line, this throughout the year it doesn't dry. The species there is like a huge version of couch grass. I'll take a quick ride up there today...

    Lens hood for museums.

    Test it and see for your self My cameras are CDAF , but historically circ was introduced to deal with half mirror issues in metering, not AF. My EOS cameras (only PDAF) worked perfectly with linear. Nullius in verba - Wikipedia

    or even linear polarizers ... which are cheaper and actually make no difference for m43 camers vs circular However for reflections with the glass at 90deg to the plane (vs at a tangent) they make no difference ... but I assume you also knew that too

    Me. Uses include combinations with GWC-1 and GFC-1. I like that I can twist the adapter off simply when I want just 14 It's light and fast to work with, I probably use it more than my 12-32. in my view ...: Panasonic 0.79 adapter on camera

    Any place you start your journey is a good one. People often fantasize about big prints, few often do many. It's expensive for a start. I think you'll enjoy the journey you've started.

    yet this is precisely what I did for decades back when I was using film and have carried through to Digital. I used an EOS630 (look it up) which had as good an AF tracking as the EOS-1 (except far fewer sensors so you had to know where and ust them) USM lenses for sports and TS-E lenses for...

    Dunno I got the G1 when it was first released, thought it was fantastic, stood shoulder to shoulder with my EOS 20D and was sharper than the early Oly offerings. I think highly of my GH-1 and GF-1 too Personally I suspect the lenses people picked to save money.
