    DXO PL version 1.2 released

    Sad, i having been using Dxo + photoshop element for a few years, and i am very happy with this solution. The fact that i am also very happy with my Em1 mk1+ Pen F and that i dont plan to change anytime time soon, should give me some time to consider another solution if it goes badly for DXo.

    I dont have the 35-100, my setup at the moment for city photography when i'll walk all day long, is Pen F +12-40 +9-18 +75mm i a think tank turn style 5. The 40-150 is for me too heavy to carry all day, but when i dont have to, its Em1 mk1+12-40+40-150+9.18 in a domke f801.

    Now you have the 12-40, which primes do you use and why?

    The 20mm has been my only prime for a few years and it was responsible of most of my photos. But when we adopted our son I got so many missed indoor shots of him due to the 20mm AF that I tried the 25mm. The 25 AF was way better. To be complete my son skin color is very dark, I had no such...

    A protective case for OMD EM-5: Zing?

    I think it was a D small, i sold it with my EP2 so i cannot check. It was a bit stretchy but not that much, its much easier to push the long panel with lets say a longer lens than to fit something wider in.

    20 vs 25

    The 20mm was my first prime, and once i got it i took most of my photos with it. I really loved it and i was using it mostly for landscape and street photos. But we adopted a 4 years old boy, and i had too many missed photos due to AF so i bought the 25mm, i never had that AF problem again with...

    A protective case for OMD EM-5: Zing?

    Is the 20mm 1.7 really THAT slow?

    It was fast enough for everything but my young son. But they are a few failed photos of my son that i deeply regretted . Thats why i bought the 25mm. My son skin being very dark its not easy on the AF too, i had to a lesser extent problems indoor with the 12-35 too. But i have none with the...

    GH3 vs OM-D, Size comparison..... Closer than you might think
