Both Canon and Nikon with their respective mirrorless offerings have an about perfect legacy lens adaptability. They had to nail it, otherwise they'd sink right at the drydocks...I didn't consider that - just assumed AF adapters aren't very good compared to native use, so you've definitely planted a seed there.
How do you mount your prints? I used to do my own dry mounting but that seems to be gone as something individuals do. I'd sure like to do my own print mounting again. Perhaps I'd have an incentive to buy my own printer.I have an expensive new lust: Epson just announced the P900 printer. 17", roll paper support, better inks, etc.
After holding it and reading the reviews available online, I opted - for the Panasonic FZ1000. I know it's counter-intuitive at first, but by all accounts, the lens on the FZ1000 is optically better than the 12-200mm, and even the FZ1000 II is cheaper than the 12-200mm alone (around here) and gives you aHas anyone here bought the Olympus 12-200 and is holding out on us? I did a Google search of the site and found only two very brief mentions of it. Is it a dog and people are running away from it, or is the rather dear price keeping people away? I'd like to eventually get a decent mid-range telezoom, and don't see myself forking out for the PL 50-200, and the Panasonic 35-100 is a bit short for my uses. I'll have to wait a while, as I just bought a new drum sander for my workshop, but I'm still curious about the lens.
Yeah because you can't possibly spare any of the 61 megapixels for cropping purposesYesterday I was doing some close-up photography and it came as sort of a shock when I realized that none of my native Sony E-mount glass offered something like a 1:2 reproduction ratio. So there we go. Looking out for a deal on a used Zeiss Batis 2/40 with close focus up to 1:2.
I'm still looking at the 25mm II - it's said to be quite a bit better than even its well-received predecessor. That said, I'm very happy with my kit after the arrival of the 12-45mm f/4 PRO - Olympus has already fully realised the potential of this very convincing lens by offering bundles for the E-M5 III and the 12-45mmKind of interested in the PanaLeica 25 mm.
Kind of interested in the PanaLeica 25 mm.
Not terribly expensive on the used markets but supposedly performs very well.
The reason behind the interest is of course the remote hope that something like this will break the camel's back and I can "downgrade" to M4/3 gear for good!
The output from GX80 and the two kit lenses is so good, perfect even. The body itself is not perfect ergonomically speaking but what is.
(How cool would it be if Panasonic made a Fuji X-Pro clone for m4/3? With an OVF/EVF hybrid? Very cool.)
Here's to hoping for a true GX8 successor soon...
