    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    My guess it that most people have migrated to m4/3 or something else. I have two E-M1 bodies, but for the most part am using all my old 4/3 glass. I still have my e-1, e-3, and e-30, but none of...

    Lens Topics Re: Laowa/Rokinon/Samyang build quality?

    I can't speak to the Laowa. I have a Rokinon 7.5 fisheye and have been very pleased with it. The build quality is excellent. I also have a Rokinon 85 1.4 which is also a very solid and well made...

    I still take mine out once in a while. The E-1 had a more "organic" look to the images. I don't know how else to describe it, but less "digital". More than anything, I like to use the old gear...

    Unlikely, but perhaps if you're not careful or holding the body only and not supporting the weight of the lens on your hand or a tripod. I've used the 14-35, 35-100, and Bigma on my E-M1 with no ill...

    I use all my 4/3 lenses, mainly the 14-35 and 35-100, but I haven't replaced any of my 4/3 lenses with m4/3 lenses. I did pick up the 45 and 75 1.8 lenses for their small size and low light...

    Camera Topics Re: CF (very old) speed of writing jpg from E-1

    Maybe a bad card? I just pulled out my e-1 which has a Sandisk Ultra 2 CF card in it and it takes about a second or less for the image to show up. That was shooting RAW.

    Are you shooting RAW or JPG? If you're shooting RAW you can just shoot an image of the grey card and fix your WB in post process.
