  1. A series of images from my serious outing with the Panasonic 8-18mm. It took me some time to get used again to real wide-angle perspective but I like it. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  2. That's quite an impressive list Mike! Which are your most and least used lenses?
  3. Great detail in your photo too Mike. I'm aware Fuji finally has acknowledged the advantage of IBIS but I think they will only implement in their top line of cameras at a higher price than the current X-T2. Still I suspect a lot of X-T2 owners (you too Mike?) will not be able to resist the temptation of IBIS.
  4. Thanks Mike, in my experience sharpness has no 1:1 relation to sensor size. I’ve shot quite a lot of sharp images with a Panasonic LX3 compact with a small sensor. For sharp images knowledge of your camera and lens is vital. I shot this image at 1/10sec and iso320 which is possible thanks to the excellent Olympus stabilization (knowledge of camera) and I used a very good lens which was stopped down to optimum aperture (choice and knowledge of lens). I used Lightroom for post processing.
  5. Thanks Erv and Armando for watching and commenting.
  6. Too early to tell Dallas, I've just shot a dozen images with it. Will report my findings later. The general consensus on the web seems to be the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 is the optically slightly better lens and the Panasonic 8-18mm f2.8-4 is the more versatile (extra 4mm on the long end, filters possible) lens. For interior photography the cheaper Panasonic 7-14mm f4 might also do the job for you, check out Phil Savory's excellent interior photography with both the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 and Panasonic 7-14mm f4 https://www.flickr.com/photos/philsavoryphotography/albums/72157683070998773/with/38207462811/
  7. First image shot with Panasonic 8-18mm f2.8-4 lens.
  8. Image shot during a cold walk on a clear winter day.
  9. I wish all FZ members a happy and peaceful Christmas with family and friends.
  10. That's an interesting observation and thought. I've often wondered how diverse the photo opportunities are among the forum members. I feel very privileged to have interesting and diverse subjects and different seasons available to me nearby and on travels/holidays. That's one of the reasons my gear lust has somewhat subdued. For me the images are more important than upgrading gear at short intervals. I think we've reached a point in time and technology where for non-professional use a relatively moderately priced gear set is good enough. So my photographic hopes for 2018 are lots of interesting and beautiful photo opportunities!
  11. Thanks Rags and Vivion. And no need for selective coloring on this one
  12. I think there's a difference between expressing a fact or an opinion. I think that difference, which is exaggerated by non-verbal/non-personal expression should be taken into account when communicating on internetforums.
  13. Haha, love this one.
  14. Wow, what a difference a change to modern technology (and great knowledge and skills by Alan) bring. I had an Epson V500 scanner once which I used to scan film. I lacked the patience for it and the results were not good enough for me. Great article Alan!
