    Lightning storm in the Swiss Alps. The canicule brought some spectacular storm last summer. This one was shot in August. Hopefully I haven't already shown it .

    Can't remember seeing this before, but even if you already posted this it still is some spectacular sight, Annna.

    Oops.. Wrong forum.. I just digged in the original files to check the settings I had used and discovered that I took it with the A7r. I was sure it was shot with the E-M5 because a few days later I broke the shutter of the A7r and remained without it for the rest of the month.

    Let's pretend it's not allowed talking about the equipment and that only the content matters ... wouldn't that be great ?

    That's the problem with GetDPI : the "fun with" threads are the most interesting, but when people change their camera brand, they disappear.. And then some forums like this one are deserted.

    The PAW thread could bring everyone together.. But it isn't as frequented as the A7 threads.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I'm having tons of fun with the Olympus Pen E-P1 at the moment (doing a PAD with one camera, one lens at another site, for which I got this set out of retirement). I can't be bothered by looking for a Pen thread, so just don't post them on GetDPI. It reminds me that I'm not a big fan of gear specific forums.

    Absolutely. Outside my day job, I've been learning what a Leica SL does (it's like mastering The Force, since the manual is zen-like and the interface completely unlabeled, but now my light saber comes to me at least some of the time), and training a very athletic little kitten not to bite so hard if she wants to live with people. But the content (kitten POWs) has migrated to the Leica forum.

    What keeps me here is that people are so courteous and there are a lot of good photographers. May I ask what is the other list you found ?

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Next to GetDPI (still one of my favorite forums, exactly for the reasons you've stated) I frequent Amin Sabet's sites (he's around here as well): mu-43.com and especially Photographerslounge.org . The first is a good source of information for all things related to Micro Four Thirds, where discussion remains civilized. Amin also runs sites for Sony, Leica, Fuji stuff, but since I don't use those brands, I don't go there. For me the cherry on top is Photographers' Lounge (previously seriouscompacts.com), where discussion can be more brand agnostic. It's not the busiest of sites, but I keep having fun there.

    Thank you ! I'll have a look at the photographers'lounge. It looks like a good site at first sight.

    You always showed beautiful pictures and should post here more often again. I remember your landscapes in particular..

    My Leica lens is the Lumix/Leica 25/1.4 Summilux and it is amazing. It's basically my fast 50.

    I hope so too, I am missing the 42.5 already . the 25mm with the lens hood attached gives the oly a sophisticated look. Got to love those square lens hoods!

    LOL, and we could not tell the difference. So sensor size does not seem to matter for quality images.

    I must say that at this size (aka web viewing size) it is difficult to see any difference. But also in MFT a few lenses are incredibly good.

    Sensor size does matter for quality images, but at least as important is optical quality of the lenses. As optical IQ is much more difficult to achieve with a larger image circle (for example 35mm FF) overall IQ differences are noticeable earlier with larger sensors. It is with no surprise that Sony released recently what the call G Master lenses, which is their desire to achieve the optical quality which should be on par with their high resolution FF sensors (due to their own words being able to resolve up till 50MP), which should be fine for their next generation of sensors as well.

    One advantage of 43/m43 was always and still is that the lens design can achieve much easier high image quality as the image circle of m43 is smaller compared to APSC and especially FF. Now add to this the optical excellence of Olympus Pro lenses like the 2.8/4-17 or 2.8/40-150 and the results must be winners.

    One of the limiting factors for m43 was IMHO always resolution and DR as well as high ISO capabilities of the 16MP sensors. I am looking forward to the new 20MP generation of sensors as at least for me resolution is now on a satisfying level while DR as well as high ISO performance have been improved. I was VERY satisfied with the image samples from the PenF so far, but also from the GX8, which uses obviously almost the same sensor. All this evolution over the past years WRT newer sensors and better PRO lenses convinces me that my decision to go with m43 has been the right one.

    Yes it came true that sensor size does no longer really matter for high quality images as long as one is satisfied with a certain resolution. And sizes where you can see differences are well above 30x40", in many cases I have seen satisfying prints in 60x80" even from 16MP. So we are finally there

    I differentiate "quality images" from "image quality". The latter is a function of the tools used and food for gear centric fora, the former the result of the photographers eye and talent

    I quite agree that good pictures are made by the photographer and the light. As soon as a photographer knows his/her equipment and all its strengths and weaknesses the system gets secondary. But there is no doubt that a better system always helps the photographer and in case of a real photographer this shows in the image results - called image quality here.

    But a good photographer will always care to be able to shoot the best possible equipment for a certain task!

    Impressive. But how did you get out of that delicate situation ? What did the bear as he saw you ? Were you on foot ? Or in a car ? Talk about adrenalin, I would have been frightened to death..

    I have had many bear encounters, this one was relatively straight forward.

    You must be a "fearless man," as in Lord Buckley's and Jimmy Buffet's bear encounters. (Google "God's own drunk," if these guys are not on your normal playlists.)

    Not fearless, just a little stupid.

    Black bears are unpredictable. Please, anyone reading this that hasn't 'experienced' a wild bear in nature, don't stop to take a photo! Make yourself look bigger and be loud, wear a bear-bell and show them lots of respect.

    Oh c'mon, you know the saying - shoot first, ask questions later ...

    The daily migration of the alpine choughs

    The alpine choughs live high in the mountains, above the tree lines. But in winter they fly down in the valley daily looking for food. They come in the morning and return where they live when they are sated, before sunset.

    They come everyday and I observe them since a few years, hoping they would swirl around the two castles. But they follow the thermic currents and are usually attracted elsewhere. Finally this morning the swarm was flying right where I wanted.. alas, the weather wasn't as collaborative as usual. I didn't get our usual clear blue sky, nor the morning sun lighting the buildings of the city. So the result isn't yet there..

    Thank you ! But it could have been much better with a better light..

    I show it small because it was taken with the A7r2 :
