It does quite well, prior to getting it not long ago i used both versions of the 135-400 which is reasonable in price and quality.

BIGMA adds a lot of weight to the K-1 bag!

A6000 or E-M10 to replace GR?

Yes,excellent.



YES!



Whichever option you chose would have been good.Everything mentioned is very capable.

But M43 now gives you MANY options for lenses....i rate the 12-32 as amongst the better kittish lens offerings(in good light.}

If,you are considering any primes in the future,Oly 45mmf1.8 is excellent as is the Pano 20mm f1.7.So a 40 and 90 FOV.

I knew the 6300 wasnt good but i thought the 6500 fixed that problem, apparently not?

I better read the manual for the Z3 and see how i can capture video.

No thats good, ive just got the $$$$ony Z3, havent explored it much yet...i know it does 4K,i wonder if it makes a video.So far ive only shot stills with it.

Does the Z5 over heat?...i put the Z3 on tempory wifi hot spot and its HOT quickly,much quicker than my Samsung.

Yes, ive seen the critiscim of the changes that some people have stated.

I wouldnt buy the mark 2 due to the difficult menu, its discounted due to the mark 3 a/ being more user friendly
b/having faster AF
c/shooting 4K video from a stabilised body
d/having the latest series 8 processor
U$649 versus $499....The release price is the same as when the mark 2 was released but its an updated camera....so far i cant fault it

One feature that is unique and was a major buying motivater for me is CLIPS, the camera will shoot 2/4/8 second videos and combine them in camera then add music.So in effect you can have an outing and make a movie recording of that event.NO EDITING. i like that!

This is a better option than the Omd 10 mk2, imo,similar price...and will fit the pocket easier than Oly.

Its worth it,

The 2 cameras you have nominated have difficult menus...Pentax and Panasonic have simple menus.Its pleasureable to use a good menu.

I own the mk 3, and a couple more Olys, the mk 3 offers much much easier menu than my other Olys....Advanced Photo on the mode dial is worth the extra alone.Throw in the extra AF points and faster AF,the latest version 8 processor(its in the flagship model).

Its my favourite "little" camera...

That spec chart is obsolete, the mk3 10 is a remarkable little camera with access to 50+ Oly/Pano lenses and around 50 thirdparty lenses.

4K video in a stabilised body is excellent,IQ 16mp stills is excellent, the menu and controls ARE easy to use.

M43 is a great system to compliment FF.

Bypass this model,its worth the extra $150 for the Mark 3.

That's correct,but the fun is getting m42/39s and lenses that followed them onto mirror less bodies.

That's possible by a 645 to EF mount adapter,then there are plenty of EF fr/sboosters .Should work on FFmirrorless/APEC/m43.

A used BIGMA is what i use for long shots,F6.3 at the long end...can be had for good prices(mine was US350ish) if you wait or shop around.
No weathersealing compared to the 150-450,but i carry a HD 55-300 and use it in crop mode if need be.

Arrived 2 days ago,tested yesterday.:)

A BIG feature for me is Clips,shoot a series of short videos during an outing and the camera combines them into one file and puts a music background to the file.MAGIC!

Well differing information sources contradict..BUT its open!

Concensus of opinion is its a DUD!...prices are HIGHer than B&M shops and the range of things is poor compared to Zon USA.

Some think it wont survive with the present direction.

I wouldnt know, but theres an AF adapter for Fuji medium format that allows EF mount to function using the Canon motor in the lens.I think thats what Fringer is doing.

The XT2 was very good at AF,but with the recent firmware update its even better.

The XE3 launched with the latest AF algothings, the XT2 has caught up to it(and X100F as well i think?).

The XPRO2 has to wait a little till it gets firmwared up,sadly the XT20 isnt capable of the advancements.
