    New Olympus Camera Mid February

    If the improved face detection with tracking works well, would like to see it brought into the em5 mk3. Then I'd get a em5 mk3

    Equivalence (hypothesis): Could future FF mirrorless F/8 and F/5.6 lenses (ever so slightly press upon) the m43 pro system?

    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?

    Olympus 12-45/4 Pro lens details

    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...

    What potential new feature would make you buy the E-M1iii?

    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

    New Olympus Camera Mid February

    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

    Olympus lens roadmap updated 2019-11-27

    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...

    Yeah we get it, you like larger bodies. Some of us still prefer smaller bodies. But thank you for trying to convert us and tell us our preferences are wrong

    Alert : EM5 Mk3 Release this year - it’s (well nearly) official

    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.

    For Australian Buyers

    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...

    Today I did away with my biggest frustration with Pany Camera....

    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...

    Galapagos Islands with the Panasonic G9--shooting modes?

    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...

    Which of my lenses should I take to Tasmania?

    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.

    12-40 2.8 pro or primes

    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

    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?

    I can live with no improvements to the sensor or even if it's the same EVF. All I'd like to see is good eye tracking EVF like in the sony cameras. So far based on the em1x, it doesn't look promising.

    why do we have the "sad" reply?

    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...

    why do we have the "sad" reply?

    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...
