Olympus E-M1X Body Only
Olympus have two walk events scheduled, myself and a friend will be at the second .... seriously thinking of getting the 16mm Sigma 1.4 before thenI was thinking of it but the family are going to the zoo for it. I wasn't keen for the walking (I'm not as fit as I should be) so unfortunately I won't get there again. The last one I got to was 2016.
So you're coming up to Sydney for it then? I've never been down to Canberra for the National Folk Festival, but maybe one day.....Olympus have two walk events scheduled, myself and a friend will be at the second .... seriously thinking of getting the 16mm Sigma 1.4 before then

Had to go and look at the images.... it actually looks possible to knock when using the front dial on the Nikons ....I’m in complete agreement about the on-off switch not an issue but Matt is a Nikon guy and the on switch it right under the shutter button. As far as the “small” sensor not able to produce good clean images I feel he’s way off base there, Matt is a diehard FF guy! I’m loving my OMD gear and I purchased the X in preparation of the new super zoom due to the $500 off price.
Lenses are disassembled on a regular basis I’m not doubting you I’ve never heard of such a thing, if that’s the case well I don’t think I’d be likely to rent gear any more as maybe im Old school but only the manufacturers should be in a lens just my thoughtsOver all a nice review.
On the IQ: we all know the images don't 'fall apart' at ISO 640. If he had quoted 1600 or higher I would have given his opinion, but 640 is way too low. He might have been shooting in jpeg and getting images with too much in camera NR.
On the lens: That video is sponsored by a rental company. I assume that is where his party got the gear to test for the trip. Those lenses are disassembled by the rental company to clean and check condition on a regular basis. No one can know for sure of it was a used lens and if it had been reconditioned and to what standard.
Yeah, I had to buy one of those Savage Light Painting Wands ($159) to play with after that video. Interesting device.Kinda curious why he didn't even mention the Z7 since its their 4/3 flagship, something of note as another perspective was this video which was next in line on utube,where Joe shows a 8'x40' billboard and really stunning studio shots. Like somebody else said, you just need know how to use it. Btw I know its a miss print but the new B&H catalogue has it listed for $1,699 might order two!
I had a Canon FD 200mm f2.8 lens that a friend had knocked out of their hands. I sent it directly to Canon for service. A client that was using my work for marketing noted that pictures that were shot with this lens weren't quite sharp and had some color fringing when the separations were done. It turned out that the regional Canon service centre didn't have a collimator. Every local repair shop I knew of did, though.Lenses are disassembled on a regular basis I’m not doubting you I’ve never heard of such a thing, if that’s the case well I don’t think I’d be likely to rent gear any more as maybe im Old school but only the manufacturers should be in a lens just my thoughts
As a "diehard Nikon guy" myself who is now moving to the M1X, the Z7 is a 45.7 mp Full Frame. The only other mirrorless Nikon made was the Nikon 1 series, a 1" sensor, 2.7x.Kinda curious why he didn't even mention the Z7 since its their 4/3 flagship,
