    Gettin' old ain't for the faint of heart, or sissys, but, it makes both out of us.

    Micro 4/3 Favorite walkabout prime?

    Along with gaining a new lens for our house, it seems that we have stirred some movement in other houses. That, is what community does.:friends:

    Micro 4/3 Favorite walkabout prime?

    I put the p20 back on my E-M5. Makes a great casual shooter. A little wider than I prefer, but OK.

    12-32 came today. Neat little package. Looks great with the little Gm5. I think the wife is going to enjoy it a lot.

    Guess what. I hate it when some one says that! I just bought the P12-32 on eBay for $100.00, free shipping. Thanks, everyone for the feedback.

    I generally shoot at 5.6, with occasionally shift to others for shifting conditions.

    Micro 4/3 Favorite walkabout prime?

    Last minute possible change of plans. The wife decided she wants a short zoom for her Gf5. That will get me the P20 for my E-M5. I can live with the P20 just fine. I think it's a mistake, because she shoots people in low light, and does not like the flash color. I know that the white balance can...

    My daughter has the 45, and it is fine for portrait use, but to my eye , it's a bit soft for my use.

    Micro 4/3 Favorite walkabout prime?

    Looking on eBay, there is a vast difference in prices. For a long term purchase, I can't justify taking the cheap way out. So I will have to grunt and take the punch to the wallet. Only, it's going to take a few more days to put together the funds for it. I think the Sigma 30mm f1.4 will make a...

    Thanks moonmind, I owned the Sigma 30mm f2.8 for a while. neat little lens, that had trouble focusing for flowers. I had noticed the f1.4 mentioned a few times, and was curious. In absolute clarity and detail, which is your choice? The sigma 30mm f1.4, or Panasonic 25mm f1.7?

    Micro 4/3 Favorite walkabout prime?

    I have the Olympus E-M5i. I am now carrying it with a 35mm adapted lens. I am thinking of moving to a AF prime, in the same general focal length. I shoot almost all outdoors, in all light conditions, and am looking for the cleanest detail and color, that I can get. My budget is very tight. The...

    This week We went to Cumberland Falls, Ky. I carried my only body (E-M5i) with the heavy 35m Pentax adapted lens on a light collapsible monopod. I like the size weight combo, for the balance and stability. I also like the perspective for a single focal length. I never felt handicapped by the...

    Of Primes and Men

    With nearly 60 years of cameras and lenses tried and moved on, I have one camera body, that wears a adapted 35mm from Pentax. Occasionally I "borrow" the P20mm from the wife's camera. I sometimes think about something else to add, maybe a long zoom, But, at this time in my life, I then say, WHY?

    What a difference light makes

    Light is the medium. Other"stuff", has to have it.
