In Topic: Are people leaving micro four thirds?

07 December 2016 - 11:02 AM

While I sometimes wish I had a FF sensor so I could have more leeway to crop, every time I look at the options I end up back at micro four thirds.  Moving to a Sony system would not only entail a lot of money for new gear (their lenses, at least the better ones, are quite expensive), they are still lacking some lens choices I would want and such a change would also mean a lot more weight and bulk when traveling.  The weight and size is what has kept me from Nikon full frame as well.  As far as I can tell, a couple of my issues with micro four thirds, such as battery life and continuous focus abilities, are substantially improved in the newest EM1 and the lens choices are quite impressive now.  One thing I love about micro four thirds is that I can get almost all my underwater gear (except arms and clamps) in a single small rolling case that easily fits in an overhead bin and my camera body and lenses easily fit in a "personal bag" on the plane along with a number of other things I like to carry with me.  I doubt I could pull that off with Sony and I know it would not work with a FF Nikon or Canon.

 

On the other hand, I don't shoot in 16:9

Still available.  I prefer not to deal with international shipping, insurance and customs so would like to sell in the U.S. 


In Topic: Dome Port Confusion

11 November 2016 - 10:12 AM

OK I understand what you are saying.    Just so I am sure we are talking about the same thing, the Nauticam port chart I have, dated September of 2016 suggests for the 12-40 that one use either the 55mm adapter and 10mm extension or the 47mm adapter with a 20mm extension and shows the latter as the "optimized" choice.  I guess the extra 2mm offers some slight benefit since they consider it optimal.

 

In the end, it looks like if one wants to use both the 7-14 and 12-40 lenses, the Zen is a better choice because it requires one adapter and extension vs the nauticam requiring either two adapters and an extension ring or one adapter and two different extension rings, one of which appears to require a screwdriver to attach and remove.
