    Buy VF viewfinder or 2nd body with viewfinder?

    IRRC the VF4 at 1.48 magnification has better resolution than PenF EVF, EM10 MkII, or EM5 Mk1.

    f4 is too slow

    No doubt - if you're running and gunning and shooting JPEG, the better lens is going to generate more keepers w/o processing. The big difference here is just down to personal preferences. I like to process from RAW and I try to shoot very deliberately as if I were still using film. If I shoot...

    f4 is too slow

    For sure - it's a really small package for such a useful range. The feature page for the Lumix 12-60 could use some lovin' - I can't believe there's only 7 pages or so in there given that most reviews I've read put the Lumix version on par with the PL 12-60 f2.8 in terms of sharpness. It seems...

    There is no reason to buy something that you’re not missing. Sounds like you e got plenty of great lenses already. Take a deep breath and forget about the GAS attack :)

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Image Thread

    This is a nice portrait. The flash is a bit hot - almost high key - but it works with the subject's black hair and dark grey background. Very striking contrast and perfectly sharpened - well done.

    I think I want sharper M1 Mark II 40-150mm 2.8 sports photos

    The above comment about calibrating your camera's focus adjustment settings to your lens is spot-on to make absolutely sure that you don't have any back-focusing or front-focusing errors. It's a common adjustment that's required on any camera system when using telephoto length lenses. There's a...

    Incredible gallery - subscribed! I really like that he mixes it up with slower shutter speeds and isn’t afraid of flash where he can get away with it.

    I think I want sharper M1 Mark II 40-150mm 2.8 sports photos

    Biting sharpness is not the foundation of a good photograph. I think we've trained ourselves to think so, but it isn't. Most Pulitzer winning material would receive a lukewarm reception on photo-forums when submitted with no backstory. I'm sorry to sound cynical but I hold this to be true. If...

    To Voigtlander or not to?

    Tough call. I own none of these, so I'm posting purely as a forum viewing junkie, tech nerd, and wishing-I-had-all-the-Voigtlanders perspective. Like you I absolutely love all of the Voigtlander photos I see, but it's really a kind of 1 trick pony. - The 12-32 is the sharpest, cheapest, and...

    Inconsistent color profiles after uploading to web

    Update: fixed. I'd forgotten that chrome buries all of the important settings in chrome://flags. Search for color and you can find the setting as below - At least for my crappy Dell LCD display, scRGB (a M$ standard developed for gaming, mostly) produces the most accurate color relative to...

    Spotted this 944 driver a while back and almost mistook it for a 968 at first glance due to the deep dish wheels. Anybody know what's going on with the fender vents? I didn't notice them until I got the photos loaded, and unfortunately didn't get a shot of the rear of the car for a model!

    It's really time for me to stop messing around and get a wider angle lens. :laugh: For all the complaining I hear about DoF being too deep on m43 I sure don't have that problem at f1.8/f2. f2 wasn't enough here as the center of the trunk is pretty soft. I really liked the shape of it so...

    Inconsistent color profiles after uploading to web

    Inclined to agree with you. I checked this page in Opera, which is Chrome based, and the reds look right as rain. Firefox is correct. Chrome is the odd man out for some reason. *shrug* I can live with it.

    The small villages here on the coast are littered with holiday homes such as this one. They remain empty for 90% of the year, impeccably maintained and waiting patiently for getaway visitors. And then there are those homes that aren't so impeccably maintained. Empty but not for sale.

    Inconsistent color profiles after uploading to web

    yep - that's what I understood, too, which is why I was stumped as to why Chrome looks so bad. It's not for all images, either. I think I was shocked because of the big shift in the reds in this particular image. In fact, the red part of the gamut has a big difference between adobe and sRGB, as...

    Inconsistent color profiles after uploading to web

    Indeed, it's a bit maddening. I do tend edit in Adobe RGB and output for web in sRGB. There's an option in GIMP to "save color profile" during export which I tried both of in this thread to reach the conclusion that chrome sucks. The reds looks bad on my monitor in chrome with either vanilla...

    Shutter release for Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III?

    WiFi on the app with live-view is the way to go for most things. It’s easy to adjust the camera while on a tripod this way, too. For LiveComposite I find the 2 second shutter delay is best but admittedly I rarely use this feature.
