    I just switch the Fn switch from 1 to 2 to change from S-AF to C-AF (customized buttons). That's really quick. I use back AF button for S-AF but the shutter release for C-AF, as that seems most logical. The explanation of why C-AF static focusing may be less accurate…

    "Mark Wieczorek compares a 50mm f/4 lens for FF to a 25mm f/2 lens for Micro Four Thirds and notes that the light reaching the FF sensor is “dimmer.” Certainly, but so what. The total count of photons for a given portion of the image is the same." If that…

    Daniel, Until 3 days ago when I was looking at your long term review of the G9, I had never heard of Mylio. I saw you had some image library of over 1 million images and thought "wow" what is that software? I found on your site you used Mylio,…

    Mylio Photos Update Is Here

    The Mylio Photos update is here with substantial changes to the Import process! As many of you know I’m a big fan of this little program called Mylio. Most serious photographers don’t even know about it let alone use it. I’m constantly amazed at photographers’ tunnel vision and inability to…

  • Micro Four Thirds Cameras Better in Low Light 

    Busting the full-frame myth Many of my readers know of my enthusiasm for Micro Four Thirds cameras. I love them for the smaller lenses, the system’s lighter weight, and its overall lower costs. But one thing I’ve never argued is Micro Four Thirds cameras are better in low light. I…

  • New Leica 9mm f/1.7 MFT Lens!

    Panasonic’s Lumix camera division announced the new Leica 9mm f/1.7 MFT lens. I’ve not used this lens, nor have I seen it, but the write-ups and videos reviews are enticing. My current favorite wide angle is the Leica 8-18mm zoom, and I don’t see that changing. But having a super…
