    GAS: Please Share your Latest Acquisitions Big and Small

    I picked up a minty used copy of the Nikon 105mm 1.4 E lens for a really good price . So far focus seems spot-on using both my Nikon D750 and Sony A7 III + Commlite ENF-E1 adapter. Lens is sharp wide open, but with crazy/smooth OOF rendering. I'm split right now 50/50 if I should keep it or sell...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    I'm not really in support of using them for digital cameras due to the slower write speeds, plus micro SD cards in smart devices are usually left in the device and not constantly removed. Regular SD cards are fragile as-is. Though there's an app called Airnef that lets you use the wifi of the...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    Normally I'd agree that 1" compact P&S cameras are a better choice, but Nikon J5 bodies can be found for cheap (I've seen them go for under $200 USD) and same goes for the lenses. There are a lot of good cameras out right now, but the appeal of the Nikon 1 system is finding the good deals. Also...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    The tilt screen will be handy on the J5. I'm still amazed by the all-electronic shutter. There's zero shutter black out. I'm wondering if this will be the future of photography in the next 10 years? I had to switch the camera to single shot, because if you're not careful you can capture several...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    So I just got my J5. This camera is a trip! It's super small, the menu system is similar to the V1 and easy to setup. The micro SD slot kinda sucks due to the size of the cards, but it works. Image quality is definitely quite good and easily cleans up when editing in raw. With the 10mm 2.8 it's...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    I get the camera tomorrow, so I'll put it through it's paces. I do plan on using it more with wide lenses like the 10mm 2.8 and 10-30mm kit lens, while anything longer will be used on the V1 due to the EVF. I have to admit, I'm having more fun with shooting with the 1" cameras more so than with...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    The Nikon 1 has bouts of genius, but it feels as if the younger designers and engineers are being micro-managed by the older, more stubborn corporate suits up the command change. For example Sigma completely made a turn-around when the founder's son took over the business. That corporate culture...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    There's a cheap silver and black one I found, but I much prefer an all black one and paid extra for it! Same here, but I also have the V1 with the EVF which works fine for daytime use. I'm tempted by the V2, but the V1 has the EN-EL15a battery that fits other Nikon DSLRs. The battery also last...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    Okay, so I have a J5 on order. I'll see how I like it!

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    I don't mind the Nikon 1 is discontinued. I have a feeling it will have a small dedicated fanbase similar to Ricoh GR1 cameras! Well I just sold my E-M10 to my friend tonight, I guess it's looking like I'm leaning towards getting a J5 now! :D

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    My other two are Nikon and Sony FF. Nikon for event work and Sony specifically for portrait work. The reason I'm using a 3rd smaller system is just for walk-around snaps or family shots of the kids at the park when I don't want to bring the serious equipment. I sold off the majority of my M43...

    Would you swap an Olympus E-M10 for a Nikon J5?

    I currently have an Olympus E-M10, but I'm thinking of selling it fund a Nikon J5. I know the E-M10 scores better versus the J5 in DXO Mark especially at high ISO, but I notice the rest of the ratings like DR aren't too far off. Plus I've edited some J5 raws and they're not bad at all. I also...

    Mirrorless ILCs with very good EVFs?

    Does the X-T10 EVF work similarly to the X-T1 EVF? Also does the Fuji EVFs work similar to the Olympus EVFs in dim conditions?

    Mirrorless ILCs with very good EVFs?

    I'm just wondering what mirrorless cameras have the most useable EVFs in terms of maintaining a high refresh rate regardless of lighting conditions. So far I find the Olympus and Nikon 1 system EVFs to work really well even in dim light. Since I haven't used all cameras, I'm just wondering what...

    How Big Are the Sony FE Lenses Really?

    In FF land, slowish 35mm and 50mm (1.8) lenses are small to begin with. I have a pancake Nikon MF 50mm 1.8 that's as big as a Panasonic 20mm. I think FE fast zooms and wide/long primes will be close to the same size as DSLR equivalent lenses.

    I think I'm bored with mirrorless systems

    I don't think mirrorless cameras are anywhere near mature yet. It seems a bit tiring having to upgrade to new features or wait for lenses to trickle. The full frame DSLR is basically digital film. It's already a mature system. FF/FX is a standard sensor size. No need having to compute focal...

    E-PM2 and RX100 side by side

    How do the images compare to the OM-D? Have you noticed any difference in image sharpness?

    Trying to decide for another camera body - Olympus E-PM1 or Sony NEX-3

    That's me! I wanted to ask the question here as opposed to the MU-43 board, just to get a broader spectrum of answers since there are more multi-camera body users here. I already have a G3 and GF2 and I like the combo, but I was thinking of switching out the GF2 for an Olympus just to have a...

    Trying to decide for another camera body - Olympus E-PM1 or Sony NEX-3

    I want a compact ILC camera body under $500. Trying to decide which one I want. Which would you pick? Both will be used for general walk-around photography when not carrying a DSLR. I plan on selling the Olympus kit lens and use a 14mm 2.5 if I get the E-PM1. If I get the NEX-3 I'll get the 16mm...
