    Does the thought of various dangers keep you from shooting in the city?

    There have been a number of violent incidents, including stabbing to death of people on a transit train by a racist who was attacking a young muslim woman. Not all violent attackers are homeless and vice versa; however, allowing the mentally ill to live on the streets creates a number of...

    Olympus 12-45/4 Pro lens details

    it's good to have choices but I don't see this as replacing many of the extant lenses out there - more of a buy this instead of buy that choice

    Showcase Nikon 55mm f/3.5 Micro Nikkor PC

    Sure - I have two of them - the Ai and an older compensating one - $50/each But I use the PL 45 macro on my m43 bodies. Above, someone said they liked the adapted Nikon better, but I dunno why...

    Olympus 12-45/4 Pro lens details

    because M34 has not been invented yet there are limitations on lenses, incl. zooms - ask not what can this lens do for me, but what sacrifice will I make for smaller size

    Leicaness and The Leica Look

    I think so too. On landscapes, the rendering of clouds in the sky was striking as soon as I started using the PL 12-60 zoom - and I have been used to Nikon optics for the last few decades too...

    Any good reading resources on Tripods?

    not an issue - less wt. and less conduction of 'cold' to your hand are the factors (plus a used Al tripod will be cheaper)

    Olympus lens roadmap updated 2019-11-27

    yes, semi-macro - it is smaller and lighter than the PL 12-60 but with less reach 0.25x for the Oly vs. 0.3x for the PL - does not make me want to sell my PL...

    Any good reading resources on Tripods?

    the poor service comment is based on time to repair and time to get parts - crucial for a working photographer; annoying for amateurs but almost all my tripods are Gitzo...

    Any good reading resources on Tripods?

    Gitzo uses Magnesium for light wt. Pressure casting can be stronger than "machined" parts (of course, the casting is machined too - I assume that poster meant a part that is carved out a billet, but there is nothing particularly strong about a billet of material. RRS uses aluminum, which is...

    Leicaness and The Leica Look

    old lens, not cheap lens The Panny-Leicas look really nice to me, and I rarely shoot portraits these days, just landscapes. The do something special and good to clouds for example. So what do they do? maybe some combo of microcontrast, bokeh, and color?

    Any good reading resources on Tripods?

    read this: http://www.dslrbodies.com/accessories/camera-accessories/tripod-101.html find a used Gitzo and put a good used ballhead on it (Markins, RRS, also AcraTech) or spend more $$ and buy an entire RRS setup do it once and do it right - my oldest Gitzo is 35 years old

    Travel + Wildlife Tripod - What do you use?

    The real question is - How many times do you want to buy a tripod? If the answer is one, then get an RRS or Gitzo, maybe a Sirui

    New PC - iMac 27” Retina 5K Advice

    I agree with most of the above. I also have a 27” iMac 5k. I ordered it with 8G memory and added 32G from OWC. Installation was easy. Mine has the 3TB Fusion drive but you should get all SSD. It can be added on via Th-bolt too. For LR get the fastest CPU you can, and don't worry about a fast...

    G9 did not achieve focus with 45mm PL macro lens

    Thinking about this some more - there is NO focus point in the file. The add-on for LR could not ID one anyway. So did the lens not move maybe?

    G9 did not achieve focus with 45mm PL macro lens

    No - the shot is a few feet away. Custom Multi focus group with a diamond of about 3 squares on every direction from the center square. focus/release priority = Focus I don't recall having this problem before - about 2 years with Panasonic bodies and this lens; 45+ years in still photography...

    G9 did not achieve focus with 45mm PL macro lens

    I am wondering why the G9 could not focus - maybe the slow macro lens was too slow to focus? I was using the center group AF choice. on a small tripod; f3; 1/15 speed, ISO 1600 Any ideas?

    GX85 on a Tripod

    That is what panny should have done. Is it Al or plastic?
  43. ralf-11

    Well I did it. Went from GX8 to GX9 and back to the GX8 again

    One of my biggest desires, is for someone to figure out how to slip a hires EVF into my sunglasses - the wireless connection to the camera body will allow good shooting!
