It looks like that check should cover the E-M1iii and 150-400 f4.5, and still leave you some change. Just saying....
Face: Hey! Nose! Weren't you on me a few minutes ago?I started out by selling all my OLY Kit because I was mad at OLY
I had bought the 24-70 and the 70-200 both f2.8 for Sony and NikonHow about putting this same information on DPR forum? Do you have the energy for it? Would be good to give different kind of perspective there to show that M43 is still a very good system, no matter what the haters repeat over and over.
Has anyone counted how many "Rick's" are in this forum? I have seen many. I'm basically Rick myself in English.There is a blatant inaccuracy in your video.
55 is NOT old.
Thank you, Rick, for the detailed explanation. There is a logic in it, but a lot of money lost as wellI started out by selling all my OLY Kit because I was mad at OLY
I was expecting something super amazing in 2017 when they announced the "EMX"
but instead, we received a super large body with very little upgrades in the video department (I was doing more video work)
So I sold my OLY kit $5000 and bought into NIKON "Z"
But I wasn't happy with NIKON (It wasn't filling a void in my soul) so then I bought into the hYPE of the Canon "R" New lenses and new features
So I bought a Canon. Then Sony came along with their 60 MEGAPIXEL A7R IV and I had to have one.
I do love sony for their fast EYE-AF but the video files are huge,.........
Anyways I just got Sucked into all the hype surrounding these cameras and also have a youtube channel
so I started reviewing all these cameras (That part was fun) SEE LINK IN SIG BELOW
Yes I had to build the TOP TIER Computer to handle 4CK 120fps at 600 bit
Also bought into the NINJA V and had Humongous files...........and for what?...............Youtube.................haha
That's the funny thing is Youtube compresses all of our files down to nothing so it
really doesn't matter what quality you shoot in
I avoid that problem by not having money. That's why divorce was so rare in the past — people couldn't afford to leave each other!It's easy to fall into the rabbit holes with any hobby.
If you've got a Pen F and want to do fisheye, why not go for the ultimate?I might get the 8mm Fisheye for fun and stick it on a Pen-F
You need a tiny helping hand. A wooden dowel, cut short, with the appropriate bolt inserted for the tripod mount. Works just fine, though to be fair I use an old skipping-rope handle that I then cut to size. Makes holding small cameras such as the GM5 an absolute joy.I have both the Meike and Laowa circular fisheyes, and they really force me to think differently. I've become adept at keeping fingers and toes out of the shot, but the grip of the E-M1.2 is in every shot, which shouldn't be a problem with the Pen F.
You are correct I lost about 1/2 of what I paid for everythingThank you, Rick, for the detailed explanation. There is a logic in it, but a lot of money lost as well
Won’t hold my hopes up with the new Pen-F.You are correct I lost about 1/2 of what I paid for everything
I am fortunate to be able to make a mistake like this and not feel bad about it
I am one to not look back or have regrets. Lifes too short and happiness and family is everything to me.
This COVID-19 has really had me in a depressed mood over the last 8 or 10 months (As it has to all)
When I made my last purchase of the Sony a7S III I thought it was making me happy but I woke up one day 2 weeks ago and
said to myself "I'm not happy at all"
I think that was a big eye-opener for me and made me remember how happy and fun my life was with Olympus
I pray that JIP will continue to make Olympus products or at least make a NEW PEN-F
best regards, Rick
you can buy that camera used in the US for maybe $150. I can't imagine a repair being worth it, unless you're talking a battery compartment door or the like. I recall Fuji standing behind X100 and sticky aperture blades in a big way. They earned my trust then, and I haven't experienced nor heard anything to make me think differently. Until this XF1 scandal.Don't mention Fuji to me.
Yesterday I got an email from them saying that my six year old Xf1 is not repairable as parts are no longer available.
Very disappointing that a premium brand like Fuji doesn't support its products longer than that. Glad I didn't spend £1000 on an X100.
