    How Big Are the Sony FE Lenses Really?

    Nice comparison! The Sony A7 and A7r have reset the bar. In 2015 the FE lens lineup should fill out, and that's when I might jump ship from Canon FF.

    Steel Mill Portraits

    My reply I tried to post earlier must have been eaten by the interwebs… Great work! I enjoy seeing these portraits where the subjects are placed within the context of their environment. On a technical level the tonality, clarity and sharpness are superb. Well done!

    Finally did it - M43 in, Fuji out...

    Ray -- it's a good move to go down a system. In effect you are running two systems. You have the two fixed lens cameras for your main setup, and M43 for when you need focal length flexibility. Have to other systems seems inefficient. This is not dissimilar to my Canon 5D3 with two lenses...

    Ricoh The Ricoh GR image thread

    Out hiking again with the GR. This is an image of a local "bell tower" that is a small landmark to hikers in SLO.

    Sony Breaks New Ground with A7 / A7R Announcement

    It is the expected (stellar) results, since the sensor is likely the same silicon. A truly remarkable potential from a camera body the size of a larger M43 body.

    Micro 4/3 Piedras Blancas Lighthouse, San Simeon, CA (GH3 + 17mm)

    Thanks! The 17/1.8 is solid. I wish it were a sharpness and contrast monster like the Canon 35L, but it more than passes the bar for my needs.

    Micro 4/3 Piedras Blancas Lighthouse, San Simeon, CA (GH3 + 17mm)

    Thanks Miguel! I agree the 17 is a capable lens, and I find the snap focus very useful for night photography or when using ND filters for such landscapes. I just set it to infinity, and go to work. The iPhone app only works with Panasonic bodies with wifi. I believe only the latest ones have...

    Micro 4/3 Piedras Blancas Lighthouse, San Simeon, CA (GH3 + 17mm)

    The much maligned Oly 17mm paired with the undervalued GH3 (as a photographic tool)... plus some ND filters, a tripod, and the lumix iPhone app for wifi shutter release.

    Micro 4/3 DPRs preview of the E-M1

    Finally CA Correction! CA correction is about time! This should have been available sooner. The EM1 looks to be a winner. The jpeg engine, IBIS, weather sealing, speed, customizability, good lens selection, and okay (but not great) video, means it's a well-rounded camera useful for a...

    Micro 4/3 Smallest m43: Panasonic GM1+12-32 f/3.5-5.6 for 699 Euro

    Looks super small. It's hard to see how it would work in real life, looking only at web pictures. This is definitely one of those cameras that one needs to see in person. I wonder how small the announced PanaLeica 15mm will be.

    Sony Breaks New Ground with A7 / A7R Announcement

    I see! I am not familiar with the NEX mount -- I saw the TCS video, and they had adapters already, showing up a Canon EF to NEX mount with AF. Good stuff! I can see this as being a major plus for the format, primarily because there is no crop factor. FF mirrorless is going to be exciting...

    Sony Breaks New Ground with A7 / A7R Announcement

    I thought the same thing. 36MP looks staggering on paper, but then when I think about how I'd actually process and use the files... I don't make giant prints, and even if the acuity, micro contrast, and detail increases are noticeable, when does that actually impact the power of the final...

    Sony Breaks New Ground with A7 / A7R Announcement

    Exciting stuff! I applaud Sony for being bold with their camera designs. I hope they follow through with lenses to match the quality of the sensor. I assume an M adapter is on the way so that rangefinder refugees can use their lenses at their intended focal lengths.
