    Showcase Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7 DG Summilux

    The other thread you mentioned is more about pre-order availability + internet reviews.

    Panasonic (Leica) 15mm f1.7 lens is now in stock

    Already expected the focus to be faster than the 20/1.7, but it's good to read it from a person that has the lens! Happy shooting!

    Real World Street Shootout! The Nikon D800 vs. The Olympus E-M10

    Nice photos! While I appreciate the images, I would rather let the photos speak for themselves, than have such descriptive titles.

    E-PM2 + pancakes or large-sensor compact (RX100, LX8 etc.)

    I ended up selling my E-PM2 because I will most likely buy the RX100m3 once more real world reviews come out.

    Really?? When I buy Apple products or my m43 gear, or other products, I look at price, warranty and features. Please elaborate how you minimize the damage?

    Does appearance of the camera affect your desire to do more?

    I too had the White E-PM2 and a white E-PL2, but I never thought they looked like toys.

    Olympus 17mm/f1.8 Comments by users would be appreciated

    The 20/1.7 was too slow for my then brand new E-PM2. So once I got the 17/1.8, I sold the 20/1.7 in a hurry. (at a steal for the buyer..) However, the more I shot with the 17/1.8, the more I missed the 20/1.7. The 17/1.8 is less sharp and lacks the character of the 20/1.7. At first I thought...

    AF 'beeping success', but completeley out of focus

    I have a E-P5 and when I use my Oly 25/1.8 with it, I will always get the green confirm and beep noise indicating that the AF is in focus, but sometimes the shots are not in focus. It seems to me the focusing system is overly eager to focus?

    Metabones vs Fuji?

    It's just that most Fuji users here get attacked, or countered by claims that folks read on the internet, when praising Fuji. Personally, I am tired of reading comments like " " this. Someone tried a camera briefly and they somehow feel the need to comment negatively. As for your case.. it...

    The Camera Store posted a great AF Comparison video between the X-T1, E-M1, A6000, GH4, and D4S

    Oh I thought you only had the E-M5 & the X-T1, didn't know you had the GH4 with you as well. Glad you clarified about that you can shoot with the X-T1. I've shot 3 weddings with the much slower X-PRO1, so I was surprised with your posting about being frustrated with the X-T1 + 56/1.2 combo...

    The Camera Store posted a great AF Comparison video between the X-T1, E-M1, A6000, GH4, and D4S

    Sorry to hear that you had such difficulties with the X-T1 & the 56/1.2 combo! :frown: But, I'm kinda shocked that you would even attempt to shoot a wedding with the X-T1 if you were already having (knowing) these difficulties going in? (Referring to the GH4 review thread that you wrote and the...

    There you go. Like many Fuji users are saying, the RAW converter used is important.

    Sell it all for Fuji?

    Wow! You're right! Just got home & tried to pull the flash back on the E-P5, & it's designed so you can't even pull it back.. As for the price point, the X-M1 sounds like a good deal, but it's best not to buy the 1st version cameras. Maybe once the X-M2 comes out? I'm a Fuji user, so I have no...

    Sell it all for Fuji?

    Sorry, but will the flash not fire? I don't understand what you mean.., yes, you can set the flash not to fire like any other camera. Pretty sure you can be tilted upwards and it will still fire. But it's a pretty weak flash & not sure how much it'll help. As for your question about the X-M1...

    Not really bonding with my EM1

    +1 on the rangefinder factor. I don't have the cameras you mentioned but I do have a Fuji X-T1, which is similarly styled like the E-M1. As much as I love my new camera, I find myself reaching for my X-PRO1 or E-P5 more often. I never liked the way the E-M5 or E-M1 felt in my hands, and the...

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 + zuiko 17mm 1.8 vs Fuji X-E1 + 18-55 + 50-230 (for the same $)

    You have to remember, if she's new to photography, even the slow speed of the X-E1 may feel fast for her. For us (those who are used to the fast AF of m43 and the VF-4 EVF, or the E-M1 EVF), the X-E1 may seem too slow and laggy, but for somebody trying out their first camera since point and...

    Crop Factor with ISO & Aperture: How Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Canon, Nikon & Fuji Cheat You

    In all honesty, I'm at work so started the video but closed it after reading the rediculous title and some of the comments in the video. As for the speed booster question, I don't know? But the way you worded it asking a "2.8 aperture on MFT is actually (physically) a 5.6 aperture", yes...

    Help with LED continuous lighting choices..

    Why don't you check out the Ice Light from Westcott? In all honesty, you need 2 of them which will put you up to about $1000 (with taxes), but they will be way more portable than the product images you posted.

    Nocticron - My Take

    Yes you are right, the X-T1 can't set custom shooting modes. Thanks for clarifying. From what you've mentioned, all that can be set is the AF or manual, flash white balance, and file type (jpeg or raw, or both). On top of dynamic range and other color/file settings such as NR, sharpness, etc...

    Nocticron - My Take

    Yes, all your custom settings can be stored and accessed in 1 click of the Q button, and rotating left or right of the dial, to get to the number your setting is saved under. Hardly time consuming :rolleyes:
  47. taz98spin

    Nocticron - My Take

    Really? Have you actually tried the X-T1, or is this something you read on the internet? One movement of the dial, you can get from Aperture priority to shutter priority. You probably briefly owned the X-E1 and that's like a user who owned the Olympus E-P1 claiming to know the PEN system. Oh...
