  1. i have this issue with the em10. i get nauseous watching back videos. making me think really hard about going to the a6000.
  2. Thanks Andy. I am leaning towards getting that to pair with my 25/45mm. Given I can pick up a used 14 for about 150-160$. I looked at the 17mm but it's a little close to my 25mm...Then I'd skip a kit lens...maybe the not the most convenient at times. and would be missing something wider (the 12mm on a 12-32mm). but should work i think. only primes will be new...but should make me think more.
  3. So the panasonic will cause an issue when zooming? I'm hoping to get an inexpensive kit lens and add more primes. But the zoom will be helpful when in other peoples hands. I could just get the oly kit zoom. Haven't heard a whole lot about the ez. Seems like the 14-42 ii panasonic might be a good buy
  4. very tempted by the panasonic 12-32mm...the price is steep for a kit lens.
  5. I am actually looking at that Panny. Especially if i can pick one up cheap (maybe even used). Do you know if there are any in camera corrections panasonic makes that would have issues on an OMD em10? The 14-140mm gets pretty big to be honest. I think down the road i'd add a Oly 40-150 (if i need the reach).
  6. So I purchased the em10. I like it. I also got the Oly 25mm, which is super nice. I'm trying to figure out what is optimal to shoot (casual) video. With the 25mm I do have to move closer/further obviously. The Oly 12-40 is out of budget. I could get a zoom kit lens, but I'm not sure how good that will turn out...given how slow it gets zoomed in anyways. Maybe my feet are the best option? Thoughts?
  7. I think i'm coming to the conclusion that for my simple home use...not having the IBIS might be detrimental if not using OIS all the time.
  8. I'd love to see that side by side as well. Debating the 2 same cameras...
  9. GX7 makes the most sense to me. The only question is if i wanted to shoot hand held w a prime (and no IBIS for video) what needs to be done in PP to stabilize it. I want to see how cumbersome that will be.
  10. i've been seeing some sample videos of the em10 using the ibis...it looks way smoother than when it's off. with the gx7 i'd be fine as long as the lens is stabilized...otherwise it would be jittery.
  11. i looked at the nikon 1 system. i'm not sure i'm comfortable with where it's at right now. I also looked at the nex/fuji lines too. i think for size vs capabilities the m43 system is the most ideal medium. the em10/gx7 seem like my final 2 choices. i really need to decide and move on lol
  12. the wife hates sony cameras apparently...rules them out. she was very happy when i sent back the rx100ii.
  13. when i did have the rx100ii the video was super smooth and could see the steady shot symbol pop up. hmmm...fuzzynormal has thrown a small monkey wrench in ;) might be back to the em10 vs gx7 debate...albeit the IBIS is not probably going to help me on stills for the most part. only in video...i have a tiny one who even know barely sits still.
  14. i think the gx7 gives me superior video but bigger form factor. em10 would have better OOC Jpegs for stills. i don't plan to do long zooms...maybe when she starts in school/plays/sports, but that's 4-6 years away (7 months now)...so by then i'm sure i'll have a new camera.
