    Camera Topics Re: Another interesting thing

    The good news is that we already have a good idea what the EX2F will be like:

    The Samsüng EX1 used the same sensor as the Cänon G10 (when the G11 was the current model) and the EX2 looks like...

    Lens Topics Re: The prime you can't live without.

    Well, I can't imagine my GH1 without the 20/1.7.

    Or my E-1 without the 50/2 Macro.

    Or my Ikon without the ZM 35/2 and ZM 50/1.5.

    Or my D800 without the 50/1.4G.

    Or my 500c/m without the...

    Business Topics Re: Mature Shopper versus Mature Product Line

    I suspect that this might be a bit backwards. The majority of people who buy an interchangeable-lens camera, mirrored or otherwise, never buy another lens after their initial purchase. And the...

    Poll: Camera Topics Re: Would you buy an OM-5, film body?

    No and no. I put two rolls of film through a pair of 35mm SLRs just a few hours ago, but one of them is on the way out the door, and the other is going to have an easy and undemanding life. I also...

    Camera Topics Re: "New" Camera

    It's just the E-1. Nobody seems to be wistful about the E-3; I never missed my E-510 and wish it well in its new home. And while Olympus certainly got a lot wrong on the E-1 (quick, where's the 'OK"...

    Congratulations!

    I started with the E-1, and after owning the E-510, E-3, and a great range of lenses, I'm back to just the E-1 and 50/2. (well, that and eight other cameras across six...

    Digital Darkroom Re: Geez, do your homework

    The good news is that both editions are back on sale until the end of June, with the 'Elite' edition temporarily costing $200US. I'm planning on downloading the 30-day trial soon, just to see if my...

    Re: More E-510 vs 1D MKIII

    Comparing the E-510 to the 1Dmk3 sounds a little ambitious, to be polite. Oly's only hoping to compare the E-Pro to a replacement for the D200 or 30D, which the mk3 certainly isn't.

    I suspect...

    Re: Who builds the 70-300mm lens?

    For many product categories, from computers to shoes and apparel, it's typical for the company to not own any factories. For example, Apple's iPod's are made in China by Foxconn, a Taiwanese company...

    Re: 43photo on site blogger

    Yes, the sensor is a 4:3 aspect ratio, but that's not directly connected to the 4/3" size name. The sensors named 1/1.8", 2/3", and 4/3" all share the 4:3 aspect ratio as they derive from video...

    Re: Munich subway

    Technically, I think the photo is very good. Good sharpness and white balance in what is clearly difficult light.

    I'm having a hard time finding a centre of interest in the photo. The people...

    Re: exposure & E-510 preview & review

    Keep in mind that if you're using identical settings at iso100, the E-510 will actually be -1/3EV darker. The E-510's nominal iso100 behaves like iso125.

    Re: Scene modes on a Pro DSLR

    I agree "No", but why not?

    Having several user-configurable preset modes would be quite useful. I know the E-1 can do this with an esoteric set of button-pushes, but having three or five...
