    Dan, I was just checking in on and saw an interesting video about the new BIF setting from Olympus(or whatever they are called now). Just wondering if you have had a chance to try it out and I am hoping that when you do, we get an update on…

    I reckon Panasonic have decided in their heart of hearts that the days of M4/3 are numbered; at most they'll get a couple more years out of it and that will be that. Olympus, ditto; whatever's at the late design phase will get pushed out to market but after that....…

  • Portrait of Linda Henry

    Steve Henry says:

    So, Dan. Yes, it looks like this most likely is a terrific lens. However, given the turbulence from Olympus selling their camera division, I wonder if many will be interested in investing that much in a system that could have a short life expectancy. I'd personally wait until I see…

    Hi Dan, From your pictures, you look like you are strong enough to hold this lens steady as do the chisiled models in the Olympus ads. Even if cost were not a consideration, this lens would be beyond my capabilities to hold as I'm pretty riddled with arthritis in my…

  • Camera weather sealing, do we need to worry?

    One of the benefits of the Olympus and Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras is their superior weather sealing. Most models from these two manufacturers are so good I no longer even think about putting them away in inclement weather. Having such faith shooting in rain or snow for the last…

  • Lumix S5 Full-frame Camera Released

    My Lumix history Many of you know I’ve been a big fan of Panasonic Lumix cameras for many, many years. At one time I was even one of their ambassadors. However, my affiliation with Panasonic ended about a year and a half ago mainly due to issues with their autofocus…

  • Did Olympus throw in the towel too early?

    Leaders in the mirrorless world When Olympus announced they were quitting the photography business, many were taken by surprise. Especially me.
