    Life's a Beach: show us beaches, beach towns and life at the shore

    More from the Grand Cayman. We were at a cafe located on the water having lunch and the child of a couple dining there was standing at the threshold, marveling at the majesty of the waves.

    Super zoom vs. 2 lens kit.

    I have a travel kit that I find to be very useful: Panasonic GM1, P 12-32mm, P 45-175mm, O 9-18mm, and P 20mm pancake. All of this fits in a CozySpeed CamSlinger case around my waist. The 9-18mm is very compact yet gives me ultrawide. The 20mm pancake is tiny and my "available light" lens for...

    Open Box Panasonic 25mm f1.7 - $123.19 shipped with warranty

    Samy's Camera has an open box P 25mm f1.7 for $123.19 shipped. Samy's is an authorized dealer. I have purchased several open box Panasonic items from Samy's and have been able to get the Panasonic extended warranty (to 3 years)...

    Thinking about my next camera

    You might consider the Panasonic G9 (which I own). It is bigger than the GX85 (which I used to own) but the ergonomics are superb. It has a mic in and an excellent EVF. Panasonic has dropped the price significantly since it came out so a new one is not much more than the price of the GX8...

    Olympus Test & Wow

    Olympus likes to make their equipment available for people to try out. I took a "How to use the EM5" class from a local camera shop (Precision Camera in Austin), and in addition to the instructor, there were 2 Olympus reps on hand. We did a walk and shoot around downtown and the reps let us...

    What to watch out for when buying a lense on ebay ?

    That is because in the early days of eBay, sellers had the upper hand. Sellers would threaten to leave negative feedback for a buyer if the buyer gave negative feedback, even if the buyer encountered issues. In the early days, buyers could easily get ripped off and didn't have much in the way...

    What to watch out for when buying a lense on ebay ?

    All of the above are good advice. I have purchased several lenses from eBay and not had issues. Look for authorized dealers (e.g., in the USA, OlympusGal, ACDmart, Roberts Camera etc.) that are selling officially refurbished products that include a 90 day Olympus warranty. Also look for...

    28-35mm purchase question

    You don't mention your budget. The Sigma 30mm f1.4 is highly reviewed and respected and has auto-focus. It is well known that Sigma has actually designed some of the best lenses in the micro four thirds system for Olympus and for Panasonic because Sigma has filed patent applications for...

    what photography related item did you buy this week?

    Ordered the Panasonic 10-25mm f1.7. The reviews have been stellar - reviewers have said it can replace all the primes in that range. Focus Camera via Rakuten offered it with 20% back in points so I got $377 in Rakuten points I can use on something else. I also had $178 in Rakuten points so I...

    GetOlympus Reconditioned 20% off with coupon "CyberSavings"

    My comment was in response to your comment "I guess the real question is do I grab a cheap E-M10.2 or .3 as a smaller/lighter option for my E-M1.2 or wait and see if eBay does there 15-20% deals again this year. Probably going to check out with the 17mm in either case. " which was likely before...

    Cyber Monday mostly deal free

    Yes, the deals didn't seem that great this year. I had about $2k worth of car repairs in November so couldn't take advantage of the Olympus refurb sale to pick up a 12-100 f4.

    Samy's In-store: G9 $797.00 GH5 $997.00

    FYI, the successor to the GX85 is the GX95 and not the G9 because the GX95 adds a 20MP sensor, tiltable viewfinder etc to the GX85. The G9 is much bigger than the GX85/GX95. I did not think I would like the G9 because it is bigger. But I happened to try one out, and the ergonomics are superb...

    GetOlympus Reconditioned 20% off with coupon "CyberSavings"

    The F has been discontinued. Most refurbs I suspect are from events where Olympus allows people to try out equipment for free. Since the F is no longer in production, they no longer offer it for people to try out. Woot (owned by Amazon) had the best price on a new F many months ago.

    Weird Olympus Outlet is Completely Empty!

    I've been monitoring getolympus and they have been empty for a few days I think. I am expecting them to do some sort of sale, at this point a Cyber Monday sale perhaps. People will have already spent most of their budgets on other stuff if they don't hurry up and have the same soon. Hoping...

    Olympus lens roadmap updated 2019-11-27

    I think the 12-45 will be similar in size to the Panasonic 12-32mm f3.5-5.6. The slightly longer reach and the constant aperture would make it quite attractive. The 12-32 is very cheap and has excellent IQ. The 100-400mm should cause a price drop in the Panasonic 100-400mm.

    Rakuten 20% off - gear from Adorama, Focus Camera, BuyDig/Beach Camera etc.

    Correct - savings capped at $60. I have purchased from Rakuten and have gotten some great deals. They often have 15% and sometimes 20% back in points and the points are not capped, and you can use the points towards other stuff.

    E-M1ii $999 (gray market)

    Thanks for the reminder. I have used GreenToe before and ended up getting a good deal from Adorama. I wish Olympus would just lower the price on the EM1 Mk II - everyone is expecting for them to announce a Mk III soon.

    Olympus Black Friday Preview (goes live 11/27 at midnight EST)

    EM5III has just been released while the EM1 Mark II is a 3 year old camera. Olympus also has discounted by $300 the EM5 III bundle with the 14-140mm lens. Given the age of the EM1 II, I would expect to see a Mark III released next year so discounting it now to clear out old stock would seem to...

    Olympus Black Friday Preview (goes live 11/27 at midnight EST)

    https://www.getolympus.com/us/en/black-friday If you scroll down, it says that authorized dealers will have the same prices, so these prices should be available from BH Photo, Adorama, Samy's, etc. Nothing earth-shattering. I had hope for a better discount on the EM1 Mark II. Considering that...

    Which f1.2 prime?

    Since you seem to be on a tight budget (you say you can only buy one of the Olympus f1.2 primes), you should seriously consider the Sigma 16mm f1.4 (instead of the Olympus 17mm f1.2) and the Sigma 30mm f1.4 (instead of the Olumpus 25mm f1.2) lenses as you can get both for about the price of one...

    COMPLETED Panasonic-Leica 12-60/2.8-4. Ships: US

    Since Panasonic offers two versions of the 12-60mm lens, I suggest you change the title and the description to note that is the Panasonic Leica ("PanLeica") and not the other 12-60, which is a slower lens.

    Sigma fp outsells Sony, Canon and Nikon at two of Japan's major camera stores

    What a brilliant design! They made it as small as possible, with a modular architecture to custom configure it as needed. There is no reason Olympus or Panasonic couldn't make something similar. The OM1, when it came out, was a game changer. I remember people couldn't believe that a full...
