  1. Chit Chat Re: I'm back in the 4/3rds fold... well sorta...

    For me, for serious work, the EVF is a deal-breaker. The potential of Olympus going EVF-only in their next "pro" offering was what caused me to jump ship. The build quality on the GX7 must be...
  2. Chit Chat Re: I'm back in the 4/3rds fold... well sorta...

    The GX7 looks pretty amazing, but it's really overkill for my purposes and that doesn't even consider that it is going to be $800 more than I paid for the GX1!
  3. Chit Chat Re: I'm back in the 4/3rds fold... well sorta...

    Sweet!!! My initial impression of the MM was that it was kind of silly, but after seeing what the M8 produces in native b&w, I've better come to understand what the MM is all about. I'm sticking...
  4. Chit Chat Re: I'm back in the 4/3rds fold... well sorta...

    Thanks! And I'd probably grab one if I could get it for what I paid for the GX1! :D
  5. Chit Chat I'm back in the 4/3rds fold... well sorta...

    Hi everyone! Well... I'm sorta back. A little. In m4/3rds. With a mega p&s.

    I continue to be thrilled and amazed with my digi M-Leicas, but there are times when I just don't want to take them...

    EVF= price point camera. They're cheaper to produce which leads to a better profit margin even at a reduced list price. They're a smart move for manufacturers looking to increase their bottom...

    Nothing paranoid about that at all. With the electronic cameras and auto-focus motor-driven lenses, I always had the entire lens range covered twice (usually the second setup was less expensive, but...

    Ramon, there's much true in your perspective and I agree with most of it. Doing this as a business, though, brings in some different issues. When you invest in a system, there are certain lenses...

    I've said several times that EVFs aren't a useful development for me. I don't like anything about them and for a variety of reasons. I was perfectly content with 4/3rds until Olympus wrote its...

    Lawrence, there is a LOT of Alice-themed work out there now. It's quite popular actually. You won't run into copyright issues unless you actually use Disney-copyrighted materials in your shoot. ...

  18. Where to buy? Re: Lenses not for sale on the buy and sell page

    I was one of the last 4/3rds holdouts to liquidate. I wanted smaller, lighter equipment and the mirrorless m4/3 just doesn't do it for me. Obviously Canikon pro gear wasn't the answer either, and I...
