    Quote: It's a bit unfair to call people who prefer a different format to yourself 'zealots'. They are simply other people who prefer another format.


    Lemmy I did not mean that all FF and APS-C users are zealots but there are a number who turn up on various forums and decry anything except their format.

    I personally use an EOS6D and Fuji Xpro1 as well as M4/3 but my comment was aimed at those who still believe that 'Large Sensor = Good, Small Sensor = Bad!

    I have an E-M5 and have just taken delivery of an E-M1.

    Like a previous poster the grip never comes off my M5 and, assuming it arrives from Germany, nor will the M1 grip.

    Likewise I keep the clip-on flash in place at all times; it adds little to the bulk but is handy to have.

    I think the major benefit of M4/3 is the compact nature of the lenses rather than the bodies (I also have a GH3 which, with the grip, is a 'monster'). The Panasonic 12-35mm and 35-100mm at F2.8 constant are a revelation compared with my EF Canon equivalents.

    There is little doubt that M4/3 (despite the cries of the FF and APS-C zealots) is here to stay.

  • Posted on: Fujifilm FinePix X10 Serious Compact Review

    As a self-confessed camera addict (at last count I had some 30, ranging from Nikon D2's to Panasonic G's, Olympus Pens and Sony NEX 3 & 5) and photographer for some 45 years I've tried most camera's from a Zenit E, through Leica M's to the Panasonic GH2 .
    I received my X10 last week and I have to say that it's quite simply the best camera I've ever owned.
    OK so it hasn't got the flexibility of the DSLR or CSC's and the sensor size should mean that the quality is far removed from the APS-C or micro 4/3rds camera's.
    In practice the results are superb and I've printed up to A3. The lens range of 28-112mm is flexible enough for most situations, the colour rendition is superb and high ISO noise is very aceptable due to the clever EXR downsizing to 6mp (better in my opinion than my E-P2 or GF-1). This is the modern-day equivalent of the original Leica concept, a small, take anywhere street camera that offers excellent results and is a pleasure to use.
    The greatest compliment I can pay the X10 is that it will replace my oldest and best loved carry anywhere camera, the Panasonic LC1. Despite all of the other camera's I have (and the majority will be on eBay within the week as I need to cut right down!) the LC1 was the nicest to use but the X10 is so superior in image quality and just as pleasant to use that I don't think the LC1 will be out again.
    Can't wait for the Fuji CSC that is due next year and, if I do sell all my other camera's on eBay (with the exception of my S5 Pro and a couple of lenses), then maybe a s/h X100 will complement the X10 nicely!
    If you can find one anywhere then I can only suggest that you buy it; you will not be disappointed!
