    EM-1 II or DC-G9 for shooting BiF with Panny 100-300 II?

    I've been thinking of getting a second body in the past while which would be good for BiF. I would use my Panny 100-300 II for that purpose. I hesitate between the EM-1 II and the DC-G9. Anybody has shot BiF with EM-1 II and Panny 100-300 II?

    Weather Sealing - Overrated?

    Back in the days, I went kayaking with a Nikon film camera (about 450$CAD at the time, don't remember the model). I put it in a garbage bag. Some water unsurprisingly made it into the kayak, but also into the garbage bag, just a little. Camera was ruined. I gently sprinkle/rinse my EM-5 under...

    Martinique, February 2019. Processed to taste in DxO Photolab Elite demo. Beginner's mistake: hand held on a boat rocked by the waves, panny 100-300 II F5.3, 1/15s, 246mm, ISO1600 Should have tried the ISO at 6400 and 12800

    My E-M1 II High Resolution shots are not sharp!

    Even with the best tripod, if the ground vibrates for whatever reason, it will be magnified by the telephoto lens.

    Canon CEO ILC market shrink prediction

    Interesting article on DPReview where Canon CEO expects ILC sales to drop and stabilize at around 5-6 million units per year. It seems current ILC market is at about 10 million units. I find it surprisingly low, although I never had any clear idea other than it was shrinking. Nothing to make...

    Panasonic 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 II

    The pictures in this thread are pretty much all I've done with it. I'm going to hopefully use it more in the next two weeks or so as I'll be traveling to Martinique. So far, I'm happy with it. Do you shoot RAW? What's the ISO and aperture of the shots you took you're not happy with? Do you have...

    Panasonic 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 II

    Yes, I'm planning to join some bird organization in the summer. I find winter birding by -12 +wind a bit too cold on the fingers in spite of gloves. In the mean time, I should get some interesting pictures in Martinique in the coming weeks.

    Panasonic 100-300mm f/4.0-5.6 II

    First time I shoot a bird with this lens, what I meant this lens to be used for. All handheld shots at 300mm, F5.6, ISO 200 on EM-5 body. I realize now that 300mm is a bare minimum for birding. No idea about the bird kind, but google image search says it's a japanese rhinoceros beetle (4th pic)...

    EM5 to mkii or EM1-2?

    I'm in the same position here (OM-D EM-5), although I'm leaning towards the G9. For landscape, I think both the G9 and EM-1 II would do an equivalent job. I'm more familiar with Olympus menu system, but I don't mind learning Panasonic's. Ultimately, to me, it comes down to the following three...

    OMD E-M1X Previews, reviews, and official announcement

    I donno, but, yes, for sure, maybe given the right amount of money...? What I mean is, does Olympus sell enough cameras to justify what Sony/Panasonic would ask to pay for such a custom sensor? I doubt it. ASICS are very expensive to design. You need to sell a lot of them for it to become a...

    OMD E-M1X Previews, reviews, and official announcement

    It's too bad Foveon sensor hasn't been backed by more camera makers and research. It would have been an awesome way to breath in more life and resolution to M4/3, given much needed improved noise figures. With a 16MP Foveon sensor, we could have had Bayer equivalent resolution about 30MP. Now I...

    OMD E-M1X Previews, reviews, and official announcement

    Sounded fair to me. I didn't heard any bashing or non legitimate critics. This camera feels more evolutionary than revolutionary. A BSI sensor to gain that extra half stop of light would have helped a bit. I'm not sure many EM-1 Mark II owners are going to fork 3k$ to upgrade.

    I feel similarly that Olympus is in a tough position. But even if Olympus ends up in a sub-niche market (with the advent of smartphones, it seems like the whole dedicated camera market is a niche market now), I'll be happy. I still have my 'old' Om-D Em-5 and I'm planning to keep it as a second...

    Price drop on EM-1.ii?

    Did the EM-1 Mark I ever sold under 1000U$ from an authorized dealer? I'd think the Mark II should follow a similar pattern, unless they're badly overstock when the Mark III comes out, which would surprise me.

    what photography related item did you buy this week?

    Yeah, just took a look and it wasn't compatible between the original EM-5 and mark II. Also, at 350CAD$, I might be better off with a knock off brand or a discounted EM-1 Mark II.

    what photography related item did you buy this week?

    No I don't. I'm waiting for the OM-D EM-5 Mark III or a big price drop in the EM-1 Mark II. Not that the EM-5 Mark III would be better, but just in case the grip is not compatible, I prefer to wait.

    what photography related item did you buy this week?

    Panasonic 100-300mm II, OIS feels very different from IBIS, but works nice. I think I need an OM-D EM-1"something" so it balances better! It's rather front heavy on my OM-D EM-5.

    E-M1II successor

    I wonder what is the size of this sensor. If it's full frame, that sensor would scale down to 9MP for u4/3. But even if they reduced the size of pixels by 2 and developed a 18MP sensor, I'd be very interested.

    GX85 failure

    When I bought the Oly 25mm, the seller told me 1 in 6 of these lenses ended up with issues. He wanted to sell me a 70$CAD 4 years warranty. I declined, I never get these extended warranty. So far, I've been lucky. I think if something was really flawed, it would fail within first year of use.
