OM-D E-M5 IS Effectiveness with Long Lenses

OM-D E-M5 vs a Full Frame Legend, Part 1

One of my more popular (and controversial) articles has been my comparison of the Panasonic GH2 and GX1 to my old, yet still amazingly good Canon 1Ds Mark II.  The 1Ds II has been surpassed in the full frame arena by more modern cameras, but the image quality out of it is still very, very …

When Olympus announced their latest camera, the OM-D E-M5, there was more buzz among the photographic community for this release than there had been for probably any other Micro 4/3 camera since the original E-P1.   Olympus resurrected their legendary ‘OM’ system name for this camera, creating a new line of Olympus Micro …

Getting time to shoot… Well, despite being crazy busy at work, I actually found some time to shoot yesterday.  The first shot, to the left (click to enlarge) was a shot I’ve been meaning to take for months.  I drive past it every week on a way to a meeting.  It’s just off the highway.  …
