I haven't read the whole thread, but just reacting to the thread title.
"equivalence terror".... oooo, I'm so scared. Those f5.6/f8 lens give me nightmares
Can we tone down the click bait thread titles?
I was initially quite interested in this lens, but seems the reduction in size is not as much as I thought it would be (for something touted to be "compact"). As an existing owner of an excellent copy of the 12-40 f2.8, it's not worth the cost of swapping the lenses for a slight reduction in...
That typo might be a way for Olympus to work out who is leaking the information. Maybe different people received slightly different drafts with different typos.. Then they could trace it back to the leak
My bet is that there will be some updated AI algorithms in the EM1 mk 3 - which will be pushed to the em1x via firmware update. This will keep both cameras up to date and becoming more competitive with other brands that have better focus tracking algorithms
I'd be interested in a 12-45 f4 if it is significantly smaller than the 12-40 f2.8 . The f2.8 does feel a bit unwieldy on the smaller bodies, and most of the times I'm using it at f4+ as a general outdoor zoom. If I need a faster lens for low light, most of the time I'll go to my primes...
Apparently the em5 mk3 delayed until october now (43rumors).
I suspect/hope they are delaying it, because they are trying to make it really good/competitive against other cameras in the similar market.
I have not had much luck recently selling on facebook buy/sell groups or gumtree. In the end I had to sell on ebay, and suck their 15% commission. I feel the market has slowed down for m43 gear, things seems to be selling more slowly and at slightly lower prices than in the past.
I do think...
same, I shoot RAW + large jpg, so I when I can see details better when zooming in and review on the rear screen. I can't figure out a way to import the RAW only (and not jpg), when importing to LR, so I import both and delete the JPG straight away. This is for both olympus and panasonic cameras...

Besides a few local weekend trips, this was our first proper holiday together as a family with our 3 year old daughter. We were based in either Hobart and Launceston, rented a car and did day trips from there. Focus was not on photography, but I tried to get some shots where possible.
For those wishing for an android based camera:
CP+ 2019: Zeiss interview - 'Let’s do something new'
Being ziess and niche, I expect it to be expensive. But if the concept takes off (I sort of doubt it), other manufacturers may take note
Welcome to the forums!
I have not been to galapagos, but I am wondering do you need something longer than the 100mm for wild life down there? Not sure how close you get to the animals but 100mm seems lke it could be a bit short at times.
I do not have a G9 either, but it is pretty...
Not a crazy idea at all. It's tempting to go light and ditch the 12-40/em1 combo. I just don't want to miss out if a good photo opportunity does come up, Tasmania seems like such a scenic spot. The weather sealing of the 12-40/em1 may come in handy, and the 12-40 is such sharp and versatile lens.
Yet another which lens to take thread... I already have some thoughts on what I plan to take, but it's always fun trying decide with forum hive mind. The purpose of this trip is for a family holiday with a toddler. Probably have limited time for photography, and more just taking snaps as I go...

Here are some from a photowalk a few weeks back:

The 12-40 is much heavier and thicker than the Oly 60mm. If you find the 60 getting largish, I probably wouldn't recommend the 12-40. Get a small fast prime. The Panasonic 25mm 1.7 is fairly cheap, but I personally prefer the wider 17mm focal length
No problems. I use their vignette presets a fair bit, but not a lot of the other ones.
I have recently been starting to create some of my own presets for tweaking the tone curves and variations of split-toning.
Looks like I have taken it personally, when I shouldn't. My apologies... hugges and kisses.
I still think the forum would be much more pleasant place if we all toned down our 'aggression', and stopped repeating the same points over and over again. I think this goes for both sides of the fences...
I'm not always after 'creative' shots. Sometimes all I want is clear, in focus documentary shots. Yes, I appreciate being creative for certain subjects when the time allows, though it's not something that comes naturally to me.
Dude... I never said the image quality was not enough for me...
Can you see a 'halo' around the taller building 6th photo? It's also present around some of the other shots, but it's probably easier to notice on this one. I'm not very familiar with the editting programs you use, but I suspect it may be from too much clarity or dehaze?
Nice shots, I like the circular reflection one. That's from the kangaroo point cliffs? I haven't noticed that composition before.
It's nice to see there are so many brisbanites representing on these forums. I also have a few recent ones around wilsons lookout/valley/story bridge from a photo...
sometimes we find what our limits are and what can make our photography easier. For me, having a eratic moving toddler who doesn't always like looking at the camera... having good eye tracking CAF would help a lot. I like shooting shallower DOF which makes the situation even more difficult...

I can’t speak for those people who had given you a sad face in the OP. I can only really speculate. Perhaps it’s an ironic response, perhaps they disagree with you, perhaps its because the term passive aggressive is passive aggressive in itself.
Are you getting consistent ‘sad face’ from the...
I can't speak for how others use the 'sad face', only myself.
I'm busy (kids, work, own business, etc.) and when I do post about something more serious, I usually put quite a bit of thought into my posts and it is actually quite time consuming for me. Even a relatively short post like this...
I'm going to fess up and admit to very occasionally using the sad face.
As above I might use it to show sympathy if someone has loss or broken something.
I do also use it for those time when someone is being argumentative and I strongly disagree with their attitude or sentiment. I could...
