    Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 handheld?

    I think the 40-150mm PRO zoom is hand holdable but I find it much more comfortable to remove the tripod collar on the lens and mount this instead: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1188633-REG/olympus_v333660bw000_dr_66_decoration_ring_for.html It keeps those anchor lugs mounted on the lens...

    The All-Inclusive Mirrorless Picture Thread - Part II

    I don't know if the focal length is long enough for your needs but I got a good deal on an Olympus Four Thirds 50-200mm SWD F2.8/3.5 (100-400mm Eqiv.) with EC14 teleconverter (140-560mm Eqiv. -1 F-Stop) that works beautifully with my EM1. I also had to get an adapter to mount on Micro Four...

    Amazing macro. I bet that Nickel Coin has been handled by millions! Great flower images too. Bobby

    Fujifilm should be paying you for such great images! SORRY, just saw the image link that this was with the Sony compact camera. My bad.

    Thinking of ditching the Oly12-40 2.8

    Well, I guess it's time for me to eat crow! I just received my new (you try and find a used one) 12-40mm µ43s' lens and it makes a perfect fit with the E-M1. I still love my Panny 7-14mm but I had no idea I would miss the 12-40mm Pro zoom as much as I have! So I'm taking back what I said about...

    The All-Inclusive Mirrorless Picture Thread - Part II

    Thanks Jonathan! Your initial thoughts sound most logical and the problem I had with the Rok FE was I used it in low light most of the time and therefore used it's max aperture most of the time which impacted hyper-focal focusing. The Olympus (and Panny 8mm FE) are AF and would assure better...

    Looking forward to your opinions comparing both. I used to use the Rok FE but sold it to get the Panny 7-14mm. Now I miss FE and am thinking of getting one again. My eyesight isn't as good as it used to be so I'm leaning toward an AF FE which means either the Panny 8mm F3.5 or the Oly 8mm F1.8...

    Three great images in that order is almost a morality story. First the beautiful young girl reminds me of innocence, then the man wearing a fox mask reminds me of the deceitful world we sometimes encounter, and last, the most powerful image, a man lost in his own mind as the world passes him by...

    You are really making that new combo shine in these fun images! It makes me feel like I've been there. I've always been a fan of the E-P5 but I'm growing in respect for the Panny Pancake 12-32mm from shots like these. Great set! Bobby

    Major firmware upgrades for Olympus E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II

    All of this talk about these wonderful features being added has caused me to convert. Yes I got a great deal on a new E-M1 and love it! Now if they would hurry up with the new Firmware. ;) Bobby

    Thinking of ditching the Oly12-40 2.8

    I sold my beloved 12-40mm several months ago and I miss it once in a while. I didn't grow tired of it or become unhappy with the IQ it just was collecting dust sitting on a shelf. Two things caused me to sell it. The first was something that bothered me since I first got the lens. Almost every...

    Major firmware upgrades for Olympus E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II

    I've been reading on several rumor sites (more credibility?) that the E-M1 Mk II will be released next spring and will have a global shutter among other tech feats! Oh no, I fear GAS is rearing it's head soon. ;) Bobby

    Major firmware upgrades for Olympus E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II

    From announcement: Support for aperture control suitable for movie shooting and the ability to disable MF clutch and Snapshot Focus has been added. Do you think this could possibly be to allow aperture control rings on the P/L 15mm F1.7 and 42.5mm F1.2 to work on Olympus bodies? PS, I was just...

    At first I was envious of all the attention (Firmware updates) the E-M1 is getting :( and then I remembered that the E-P5's I've been shooting with are almost perfect (for what I shoot) and my camera envy and GAS disappeared. :D Bobby

    I'm not nuts, just evolving.

    Just updating you guys and gals. As you can see in my signature I've sold my GM5 and acquired another (silver) EP5. The black EP5 is for IR photography only. Now if I want to capture visible light I grab the silver EP5 and for IR I just grab the black EP5. I loved the little GM5 but it just...

    Zuiko 12-40 f2.8

    Another vote for the 12-40 Pro Zoom. It was probably the best zoom lens I had ever owned. Sadly my deteriorating health no longer allows me to carry this lens with me as an everyday optic, for a going out the door camera I now use the P/L 15mm on my GM5 as it's much lighter and this old man can...

    Panasonic Gx8 - 4K video/stills, 20 MP sensor, dual IB/Lens IS

    Some of us seniors no longer have the ability to carry heavy gear. I can carry a GM5 with the 15mm F1.7 all day and it's no problem. No way I could carry my old setup (Nikon D90 and 17-55mm F2.8) for an hour. I'm glad there is such a large variety of camera sizes in µ43's!

    Panasonic Gx8 - 4K video/stills, 20 MP sensor, dual IB/Lens IS

    Now is the time to get the GX7! I prefer to wait until a model has been replaced and then the previous model drops substantially but the older model (GX7) still captures great images. That's how I acquire most of my cameras and it works for me and saves me some money to spend on lenses. I don't...

    Panasonic Gx8 - 4K video/stills, 20 MP sensor, dual IB/Lens IS

    Sounds like you are probably right Bruce. I'm a little surprised they apparently (no specs yet) made it a little bigger than the GX7 (see link). After the success of the GM series I was afraid they might go toward a more compact line up although I wouldn't really call the G7 small by any...
