    D800 is excellent in shadow recovery, but I could swear OMD has better highlight handling. Probably because they use different approach with Olympus using underexposed ISO100 and lifting mid and...

    Hi Don,
    I don't think it's crippling it using Sigma lenses since recent Sigma lenses have been fantastic.
    35mm is said to be the best 35mm out there and 85mm 1.4 is not shy of Nikon's own 85mm 1.4G...

    Chit Chat Re: My new E-M5 -- Funny how things happen . . .

    I agree with this.
    For static stuff, landscapes, macro, architecture, etc it's completely fine.
    It doesn't work well for moving stuff and sports.

    Camera Topics Re: Advice on quiet shooting at formal events

    OMD is very quiet.
    More than that it has a kind of a muted shutter sound making it less obtrusive than a classic DSLR, having only a faint *thud* sound.

    I don't think this is correct.
    I've used SHG lenses and neither 14-35 nor 35-100 are parfocal lenses, focus does shift when you zoom. Maybe shooting @f5.6 or above it wouldn't be noticeable, but...

    Regarding AF with FT lenses.
    I was actually very pleasantly surprised how well it focused with 70-300 and 40-150.

    I know 70-300 was never a fast focus lens, but on OMD it's almost as good as on...

    OMD is a great camera, but it really needs primes to work well, both in terms of size and image quality.

    12-50mm is far, far from 12-60mm SWD FT lens. It's good for what it is, but there's no...

    I used Canon 60D along with 85mm 1.8 today and I found it to be quite a nice angle for weddings (church), so that I'm thinking of getting 75mm 1.8 for OMD, seems like a nice FL to have.
