    Re: E3 specs "leaked"

    Good question Glen. I've seen samples of the Sigma 170-500mm, and I think the Bigma sample are better (just from putzing around on pbase).

    But I also wonder if Oly can improve on a Sigma design....

    Re: Damn this E-1

    Really superb show. How do you know it was E-1?

    I must say, I sometimes feel a bit pixel lust, but a year ago I shot a wedding with the E-1 and 20D + L glass side by side, and I fully realized...

    Hey there good lookin!

    The E-400 that is, as more results start to come in the camera is looking to be pretty fine with noise being decent and overall image quality Olytastic. This bodes well for Olympus, and I think they...

    Re: Sigma talking about 4/3rds possibilities

    Are most SA mount lenses designed for 35mm full frame?

    If so, the possibility exists that Sigma may evolve their current SA mount system to a 35mm full frame foveon line and introduce a 4/3rds...

    Mystery Hump

    I suppose it could be live view implementation, however the E-400 has a similar hump between the prism and viewfinder.

    Re: Sigma 50-500 first impressions.

    Thanks Bob,

    Good looking test shots. I'll be looking forward your posts when you go out on a shoot. I think the size is exaggerated by many folks. I've handled a KM mount Bigma, and considering...

    It's the regular fury that goes along with new releases. I must say, that the conversation is much more postive and less frantic here during release seasons. I like that. Thanks guys.

    Wow Ian

    It looks so small with that 40-150mm in your hand. Is it awkward to hold being so small? The Rebel aches my hand after about 5 min. I think this E-400 looks great for a E-500 replacement (Though It's...

    Re: Sigma 50-500mm onsale date

    Cheap sigmas can very widely. (Such as the 55-200mm 4/3rds Sigma). The 50-500mm is built up to a higher standard physically--I've used it on a Minolta D5D. I've have not heard the comments about...

    The new FujiFilm superzoom cam looks to be what you have described (a FZ50-like camera with lower noise). Almost a compact DSLR/sans larger sensor. Though I think Panasonic is doing quite well...

    I don't see how the image circle is much wider when the lens is zoomed. Take for example the...

    Re: Olympus 40-150 vs Sigma 55-200?

    I sold the 55-200mm for the 40-150mm. The pictures I could coax from the Sigma were very good for the price--very decent quliaty--but the Zuiko lens is slightly faster, beefier built, sharper at the...

    Re: A few 50mm OMs tested.

    I owned a 55mm f1.2 which was specacular on an OM-1 but dosn't test out well on 4/3rds (I sold it long before Oly went digital). I owned a 50mm f3.5 but sold it due to owning a Vivtar 55mm f2.8 1:1...

    I don't know if Oly is a praying company, but it dosn't strike me that this particular sensor by Micron is Oly's do-all hope and future. Reguardless, it shows that sensor technology will continue to...

    Re: Wobbly Fix, or not?

    I'm in favor of in-camera stabilization, as long as it can be turned off when not in use and dosn't affect the AF accuracy. I reason that software shift IS will be not only possible, but extremely...

    Re: Live View -- Other Options

    Yes, possibly live B mode only with AF and metering would be a better solution. Could also do movies. No you don't have to use that feature, and even mentioning it might embarass some folks.

    I'm sure other manufactures have been looking into other options for live view, but I was thinking for the E-3:

    I'm with Pavel

    I think a simple 3 point scale in the viewfinder could show clipping quite effectivly. This is my choice over the overlay. It's simpler, less distracting, and probably cheaper to implement.

    I think the L1 will be dissapointing if only B-Mode type live view is offered. Sure it is still a well designed, rangefinder-like body, but with a dark viewfinder at the expensive a live feature that...
