    Which Olympus cameras have these 2-3 features?

    I’ve got the Sigma 18-300 but packing the Nikon kit to fit within carry-on weight restrictions has always been a challenge. Bigger sensor means bigger lenses and that also means heavier lenses.

    Which Olympus cameras have these 2-3 features?

    I have the EM1.2, EM1x and D500. I was thinking of doing a complete switch to the D500 but have decided to stay with the Olympus. The D500 (and D7500) with Tamron 150-600 G2 and a bunch of other lens are a brick and a real pain when trying to pack for travel (weight wise). I was recently in...

    Downsizing the right way?

    The year the 12-100 came out, I travelled to Nepal/Tibet/Bhutan with only the 7-14 and 12-100 and left my 12-40 and 40-150 at home. I ended up using the 12-100 to take 95-98% of my shots. There were a handful of times I regretted not having the extra reach of my 40-150 pro lens but I made do...

    E-M1 Mk I to Mk II Transition Questions

    It has been a couple of years since I transitioned from Mk1 to Mk2 but if I recall, they were more or less similar. I didn't read the manual for the Mk2 before starting to use it (and still haven't other than for specific "need to know" functions).

    40-150 zoom ring

    Do you mean resistance in the zoom ring when zooming in and out? my 40-150 zooms in and out as smooth as a babies bottom. Maybe you should try it out at a store, if there is one close to you, to see if it's to your liking.

    One week trip to Alps

    Your 40-150+1.4x will be useful for landscapes and not just for wildlife. I always use my tele's for landscape shots; usually it's the Panay 100-400 zoomed out.

    Everyday pocket cameras?

    I have an old GF2 and 12-32 lens that I use on occasion as my point and shoot. It's small and light and not worth much anymore so other than selling it for nothing, I use it occasionally for that purpose.

    Does Size really Count?

    I just buy whatever I want; not what I need. I have the Oly 300 Pro; used it only once a few years ago but I still have it. It makes a pretty good paper weight to weigh my monthly bills down so they can be easily found (rather than the pile of other scattered paperwork littering the desk)...

    Who uses iA Intelligent Auto Mode?

    I used to use A exclusively but have switched to using M and S these days. I know a retired press photographer, who now leads photo tours (not workshops) who just tells everyone to set everything on auto and let the camera do the work.

    12-200mm for travel photography

    While I've never been to Costa Rica, if you want to get wildlife shots especially with birds, you will need as long a focal range as possible. I've been to the Cloud Forest in Ecuador/Galapagos and several safaris in India and Africa and found that I could have used something longer than the...

    PL 100-400mm used vs new with warranty?

    Safari with EM1.1 (x2) + 12-100mm +100-400mm

    The OIS on the 100-400 works but not in combination with IBS like the Olympus lenses so you either have to use lens or body stabilization but not both in combo.

    What has been your experience with the E-M1 II & PL100-400?

    I use the 100-400 with my EM1 II with no problems. There was a post here which stated that Panasonic can't fix the 100-400; do a search to find it.

    Whale watching

    If you use a weather-sealed body with a non-weather-sealed lens, you risk water infiltration in not just the lens but the body as well. I've never been whale watching but I assume that if you are lucky to see any whales, they could end up either being very close to you or far away so either way...

    Safari with EM1.1 (x2) + 12-100mm +100-400mm

    i agree, if you’re going to get a second body, get another EM1 or the Mk II as they use the same batteries.

    Safari with EM1.1 (x2) + 12-100mm +100-400mm

    Namibia for me will involve a lot of low light shooting situations. In fact, the majority of shooting will be before sunrise and after sunset. It is for this reason that I will be going with my Nikon kit. The 2 bodies and lenses, batteries, etc already weight 22lbs in my bag. That’s a heck of a...

    Safari with EM1.1 (x2) + 12-100mm +100-400mm

    the lens combo will work with either the EM1 or the MkII. I did Kenya (twice), Tanzania, India, Galapagos (twice) and Namibia with those lenses and they worked fine. They just didn't do well with bif. I did travel with two bodies; first couple of trips with two EM1s the with two MkIIs after I...

    Question about the Peak Design Leash strap...

    I used the leash for a few years and now I'm using the slide and slide light. after using the slide (and light) I find the leash a little too narrow but that's just me. Others may find the leash as the perfect strap for them.

    Best companion camera for OM-D E-M1 Mark II

    The EM1 II is already small. Going with a marginally smaller body will not save you much weight. If you can live with only one body then save the money and put it towards glass.

    Lens suggestions for Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand tour

    Lens for Ecuador - Oly 300/4 + MC14 or Canon 400/5.6 USM?

    I actually got lots of use with the 40-150 and also 100-400 but at times the 40-150 was a little long and I had to switch it out for a wider lens. There were some islands where the birds were fairly far from us (some parts of Genovesa) and the 100-400 got lots of use there.

    Lens for Ecuador - Oly 300/4 + MC14 or Canon 400/5.6 USM?

    I was in Sani Lodge in Yasuni National Park a few years ago and didn't see much. That lodge was also a death trap with major maintenance work required and most of the native guides were only interested in their tips. The long lenses I had with me were 40-150, 300 both with MC1.4 and the Panny...

    The 300 Pro as a Landscape Lens

    Yup, although I also have the 300 (haven't used it in 2 years), I find the Panny 100-400 more flexible and use it all the time for landscape shots.

    How do you insure your gear?

    Not a collector of tubes but I do have a few quads of GE 6550s. I have several Apogee speakers all run on tubes and a pair of Tenor Audio 75 Wi monoblocks still in their crates.

    How do you insure your gear?

    My home insurance in Ontario will not cover a single cent for jewellery, computers, photography equipment, etc unless you get a rider. It, however, covers my $50K in audio equipment (so they say).
