    Upgrade from G2 for street photography-lens or camera body?

    More ISO is more valuable to street photography, the 20mm is a fine street lens in my opinion, you could consider the 25mm if you wanted more quality, doubt you'd notice it much for web only viewing though. Depending on your budget, G5/OMD if it's high, G3 if not so high.

    Why you choose M4/3 & will you stick with it?

    When I decided to get back into photography I was looking through various shops, amongst all the canon/nikon bodies there was this small looking camera that I like the look of. It was the G1, Id never heard of micro four thirds or knew what the concept was, but it was small and had...

    Testing the Legendary Panasonic G1

    I still use a G1, never really felt the need to get anything else, although if someone has an OMD they want to give away I'll take it off you. :smile:

    Panasonic G6

    Not been keeping up with photography for a while so I was a bit surprised to get an email about the G6, didn't the G5 only come out a few months back?

    Oly 12mm vs 9-18mm vs Pana 14mm + GWC1

    Depends how wide you want to go really. I had the 9-18, but sold it, I have the 14-45 and feel that's wide enough for me, I use it at 14 most of the time, If I didn't have the zoom I would just buy the 14mm and use it as my main lens. I found the 9-18 a pain to use to, to much faffing about...

    Travel lens: Panasonic 12-35 on OMD vs Sony RX-100

    I went around the world with my G1 with just the 14-45 and never felt I was missing out. I also took my little S95 for carrying around when out at night or in places I didn't want to be swinging a big camera about. So take both. :smile:

    UK Price Rant.

    Seems pretty much standard practice to do straight $/£ conversions these days. It could be worse, go to New Zealand and look at their camera prices.

    Dilemma - switch to oly??

    I agree, unless you have Parkinson's or are a recovering alcoholic why would IS ever be an issue? Here's a radical suggestion; increase the shutter speed. Sometimes I wonder how anyone survived in the days without IS and 6000+ ISO levels.

    New camera frenzy.

    That's the kind of thinking I just don't get, the constant obsession to have the new toy. Odd as all the m43 camera's are pretty much the same, just with minor tweaks. Not a personal dig at you, but the 'must have new stuff' mentality seems to be particular to photography.

    New sensor, larger pixels :)

    New sensor, new screen, higher pixels, higher ISO, satnav, coffee maker, shiney, shiney, must have, must have. It's the best camera ever. Until the next one. Yawn. :smile:

    New camera frenzy.

    Out of interest how many of you that have pre ordered the new Olympus have held it or even seen it in the flesh? Seems odd to me that so many seem willing to spunk £/$ 1000 on something they have never seen. It's a nice camera for sure, but the fever pitch surrounding it is a little bizarre...

    Sigma lenses.

    When did Sigma start making micro four third lenses? Has this been discussed and I've slept through it? A 19mm, and a 30mm are apparently on their way. Here. (scroll down)

    Filters for Micro 4/3

    Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking what size filter you need for a specific lens?

    Lumix G Vario 7-14mm f/4.0

    That's pretty good, I would of expected to see a bit of distortion that close.
  22. Danny_Two

    Wide angle great doubt

    Never heard of SLR magic, who or what are they? A lens with double figures isn't wide in my opinion, but as mentioned, if you want some width and have a budget consider the 14mm.The 20mm is a lens everyone should (and most do) own.

    Keep my GF2 or get a S95?

    The S95 is very good, but it is still a compact. It is however far more portable than any m43 camera and it's low light capability is excellent. I'll always choose the G1 for proper photography, but the S95 is great for out and about and social where a bigger camera is just not appropriate...

    Ultrawide for G3....Sorted.

    Park cameras are normally pretty good for pricing but they have the 7-14 as £999, amazon have it for £860.

    Ultrawide for G3....Sorted.

    Olympus 9-18, or the Olympus 12mm, both expensive but both cheaper. The 9-18 is probably your best bet. See the lens sample image threads for more info.

    Samyang 7.5 on the Street + Hemi-Defish

    I like the first two, but they don't look any more distorted than the 9-18 wide open IMO, the third one is clever, but a bit overdone for me. I like fisheye stuff, but I doubt Id use it enough to have a dedicated lens, I notice Olympus do a fisheye attachment, anyone know if it any good?

    What lens should I get

    Id suggest the Olympus 45/f1.8, great for street, better than the 20mm in my opinion, good portrait length to. Not ideal for landscapes though.

    Wired shutter release for the GH2?

    Well, you get what you pay for, if it's occasional use then a cheapy is usually ok, if its used a lot Id tend to go for the quality gear.

    Tons on ebay, Ive got a cheap and cheerful one, does the job and can be locked open. i only bought it for storm photography, unfortunately I live in a part of the world that never has storms. :rolleyes: For night photography I usually just use the self timer set to two seconds, its easier...

    Stevehuff's Nex 7 review- what do u think?

    It's a lot of money, about £1200 in the UK. I get the feeling its just another megapixel showboat, really, why would you need 24mp in a camera like that? If you want to blow pics up to billboard size get a full frame dslr. That said, cameras like that will raise the bar for m43 so we should...

    10 stop filters/welding glass, etc

    Anyone using 10 stop filters or welding glass for long exposure photography with m 4/3? Seen some fantastic results and would like to give it a go. What are you using, I've seen some cheap 52mm 10 stoppers on Amazon which would fit my 9-18. Anyone got any recommendations or tips?

    PL45 Macro Unsure

    Get the canon lens and an adapter for your GF1 and use both cameras. Macro is generally done with tripods and manual focus anyway so the extra expense of the P45 auto focus may be unnecessary. If its just macro you want to do maybe even consider some old legacy lenses.

    WA:Toughest Choice in m4/3

    I've got the 9-18, chosen primarily because of cost, but the only other choice at the time was the uber expensive 7-14, which was still almost double the price in the UK, and still is. You need to decide what you want, wide or u l t r a - w i d e, if you want ultra wide aperture isn't such...

    will the prices of the lumix lens drop within time?

    Ive noticed no real price drop in the UK, the big ticket lenses such as the 7-14, 45mm PL, 14-140 etc, are still about the same as they were on release. You'll always find the odd exception, but overall they hold their prices.

    Lens envy/jealousy/lust - exciting days!

    Im interested in the Oly 45mm, mainly because of all the Canon heads going on about their 'nifty fifties' Im interested to see what the fuss is about. Apart from that I've everything I need, although if they produced an ultra wide fast prime, say 7mm, then I might be interested.

    Panasonic 45-175?

    Where the hell did this come from? Have I been in a coma? Was browsing through the Park cameras site and found it listed in the the m34 lenses, thought it must be a typo, but no, it clearly had 45-175 on the lens. A quick google found this. I've heard no mention of this lens anywhere...

    No manual focus problems for me. No AFC option with the 20mm on the G1 either.

    UWA for m43?

    Of course there's also cost to consider, the 7-14 being almost double* the price of the 9-18. If money were no object I'd have the Panasonic, it is, so Ive got the 9-18. :smile: * approx, uk prices.

    M Zuiko 9-18mm: Good thing, small package

    Ah, good old Brisbane. :smile: I've got the 9-18 and have never really been able to decide whether I truly like it or not, just when I think I like it it throws up some horrible distortion, the b&w picture of the lady in the backstreet a perfect example (post #13).

    Olympus 12mm v's the 9-18.

    Focal wide open, although I generally use big apertures al the time to. That's the thing, I don't know what normal looks like, but I don't see it on other photos. I don't want to leave it extended when it's rattling around the bottom of a bag.
