    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…

    Hi Daniel, Are you with Olympus now? There is so much of confusing information regarding MFT system. Sale of Olympus to JIP. It seems like Panasonic is losing interest in photo side of m4/3 cameras. They seem to be more interested in video. What do you think about it ?

  • 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…

    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.
