Re: DxO: Sony A900 vs Olympus E-M10II

We've actually just bought an E-M5 II with 12-40mm and then acquired a well-priced used 75-300mm II Olympus for it. Shirley has now had one cataract operation and is in the queue for what may be both a further cataract operation and corneal graft - which could restore vision to both eyes, 3D again ...

Re: Future of A mount

I'm very pleased with the image quality from my GX7 and that's just with the 12-32, F/3.5, I am still looking for a tele zoom to complete my simple system, but not a big long one, may be up to 140. The Olympus 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 gets great reviews from users. I don't have it, but I have held it many...

Re: Future of A mount

If I'm correct m4/3 all their bodies have IS built in I find it very useful - hugely. It's puzzling why Sony denies this to their entry/mid APS-C users only the full frame ones have it Seems like a deliberate omission to up sell to the more expensive cameras. Have to say at A6600 prices and those n...

It was announced yesterday that Sony sold the last of their stake in Olympus. They had sold some earlier also, but now down to zero.

Re: DxO: Sony A900 vs Olympus E-M10II

Over the last few weeks I had been going through all my Japan photos over the years. Since I started using digital I have used many cameras of course. I have lots of A700 and A100 photos to compare to m4/3 photos (Olympus PEN-F, E-M10II, E-M10, E-M5, and Panasonic G3). I have noticed that my m4/3 ph...

Re: Future of A mount

Bakubo, your probably more sensible than odd ​ Over the last few decades I guess I have just been very good at knowing myself and what I value. If you know that then choosing a camera that matches up with what you want is not all that difficult. For my primary photographic interest (street, travel,...

Yes, I see that all the time on the forums. It never has happened to me though. I guess I am just odd. :)

Re: Future of A mount

Some of what's missing on the DSLRs that's included in all the phones is GPS and wireless connectivity. Most models are making you pay extra for that, via some kludge module you have to hang on to your camera body. Why? If I can marry a phone module into the body of my DSLR, I can do what my wife d...

Re: Future of A mount

I'm still wondering why there are no more 3rd party m/4/3 lenses, Sigma, Tamron and the others must think there is still a market for their lenses in cropped and FF but as you say they are really no longer a budget option. m4/3 3rd party lens makers: Sigma Tamron Voigtländer Samyang Rokinon Kowa Ko...
