  • Archaeopteryx says:

    Helpful writeup, thanks Dan. I recognize much of the discussion's long done but it's probably still worth mentioning my copy of the Fuji 100-400 is decidedly worse than the sample here. MTF on the Fuji 100-400 is down quite a bit with their 1.4x teleconverter (which I also own) too;…

    Once again, you have provided invaluable and erudite commentary on the current state of the art in photography. The combination of your expertise in "real world" nature shooting situations combined with your honest evaluations of equipment make you a "one of a kind" authority.

  • Tim says:

    DxOmark rates the E-M1 Mk2 sensor about 1 stop faster then the G85 - does that mean that in low light conditions the two would perform about the same as you could push the ISO a little harder in Oly and thus compensate for need for a faster shutter?

    Leica 100-400mm Comparison Lumix & Olympus This morning I was inspired by a question on the blog to do a quick and dirty little test, comparing the Leica 100-400mm on both the new Lumix G85 (with updated firmware V.1.2), 100-400mm firmware update V1.1, and the Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark ll. Here’s the…

  • First Annual Natural Exposures Mylio Workflow Research Event

    One of the best ways to build sincere, productive relationships is to meet face to face, share a beer, maybe a Coke, possibly a glass of wine—anything’s an option when there are no margaritas in town. Call me old school, but great relationships are founded on more than tweets, hashtags, and…

  • Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark ll Leica 100-400mm

    Ever since the announcement of the new Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark ll I’ve received a great deal of questions about how this camera will work with the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm zoom. Thankfully, I finally received the new Olympus, and this last week I spent time at Bosque del Apache NWR shooting the combination. Overall,…
