I should stop here but I will continue

Re: Black & White Photos from a G3

instead of using the sepia "creative style", why don't you just use the monochrome "photo style"? :)

Re: Function knob missing in E5 compared to the E520

competitif? dans quel sens? :confused:
anyway, the semi-pro / pro models are always been without scene modes... for example the Pentax K-5, the Canon 7D, the Nikon D300s, Sony Alpha77 and so on......

Re: Panasonic G3 +14-42, 45-200

if you don't want to buy primes, get the pana 14-140 instead of the couple 14-42+45-200 :)

Re: Dog Agility Set Up advice please E-410 14-42MM

If I were you, I just wouldn't shoot at "slow" shutter speeds. Panning dogs isn't that effective because of the great lack of detail (see the difference between the 8th picture @ 1/400s and the 10th...

Re: Dog Agility Set Up advice please E-410 14-42MM

RE focusing: remember that every ZD lens is not a zomm but a varifocal lens: changing the focal lenght changes the focus, so every time you zoom in/out, you always have to check the focus again. You...

Re: Dog Agility Set Up advice please E-410 14-42MM

stay as close as possible.
can you borrow an inexpensive 40-150 f4-5.6? you could get faster shutter speeds (f4@40mm vs f5.6@42mm) and the possibility to isolate more the subject from the background...

Re: Best AF Single Focal Length Below 25mm

They have a different behavior: the Panasonic is well corrected and pretty sharp, the zuiko has a reportage-like-soul with sharp center and not-so-sharp corners.
The Pana has a better AF, while the...

Re: Best AF Single Focal Length Below 25mm

If you can't wait for the Zuiko 2/12, there's the fantastic Pana 1.7/20.
If you want a more wideangle lens, look for the little Pana 2.5/14.

Re: Compatibility question

Theoretically, you can buy the 43 adapter and the ZD 70-300 but you won't have good AF at all.... this lens isn't fast even with 43bodies...

Re: Some questions about E-PL2 (and vs GF1)

1 - of course. Pana lenses perform better on Pana bodies (CA correction is included. Distortion correction works in any m43 body)
2 - yes. don't know if it's movable
3 - in low light, the Pana AF...

Re: Which tele lens for Pen?

if you already have the 43mount 9-18, go for the second choice.
the zuiko 40-150 isn't that fast and silent, but the AF works well on m43 bodies :)

ps. the m43 40-150 is smaller, faster and...
