    Yeah, Daniel, I'm with you on Apple Photos. I got really upset with Apple (and I'm an Apple user since 1984) when they killed Aperture and replaced it with Photos. How lame was that move!! While certainly not in your league for photos (only 30,000 or so image files and…

    Ohh thank you for sharing that article. The advantages of micro four thirds aren’t talked about enough. They are easier to use. Greater depth of field is an advantage. I just did a shoot with a full frame and then a similar one the next day with my OM1. Categorically…

  • Lucas says:

    That PL 200mm 2.8 is an incredible lens to work with. Insanely sharp, has great IS, beautiful colours and stays relatively sharp with the MC14 (therefore competing with the Oly 300mm).

    Would this one be better for night skies than the 12mm f1.4?? (Wider but slower?)

  • 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…

    The new Leica 100-400mm Mark ll is finally here, thanks to the equally new Olympus OM-1. Ok so not an “official” updated version of the old lens but a totally new version based on the unbelievably improved performance when used with the impressive OM-1. Go ahead, accuse me of clickbait.…
