Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Olympus OMD EM5 or 6D

Not a definitive review or comparison...  but will directly compare the stats and DxO marks (for what they are worth)..

Personally, i would grab the 6D Kit if you can afford it...  24-105 + 70-200 is a very nice set-up...  Saying that i do like the EM5 too! :)

good luck choosing and enjoy either!

Bring a coat with big pockets and shove a lens in there if you want an extra one (or two). Just an FYI! :)

come on canon, fix the AF...  it doesn't have to be lightening fast, just a little bit quicker!

I came across Gimp many years ago as a free bit of software, and now have it on my work computer instead of PS...

This is just a hunch, but this reminds me of Glasgow...  where was it taken? Nice shots and welcome!

1) For the art and enjoyment of capturing a beautiful shot of something wonderful or finding beauty where people overlook it! The pride i get from showing people my work and them enjoying it.

2) To document my life, create memories that will hopefully surprise me and remind me of events when i look back in later life.

3) It appeases my inner geek...  I like technical things and enjoy learning and mastering, er, things (languages excluded).

Photography, combining all of the above, makes for a perfect hobby for me; producing beautiful photos, that will remind me of places of been seen, while always challenging me.

I just moved from a 450D to a 5D MK III...  all i can say is that i have not looked back...  EVERYTHING is better... I went for the 5D over the 6D mainly because of the AF and i prefered the feel of it in my hand... pick them both up, and try them...  rent them both for a weekend, see which one does it for you...  :) either way, the IQ is exponentially better! Enjoy!

Would f/8 autofocus on the 5D be a pipe-dream? otherwise, i'm excited about what it could possibly bring...  video i don't care that much about, since i barely use it now... red AF points would be nice but i have gotten use to it now! f/8 autofocus would be awesome though... sigh...  doubt it will happen though. Either way, bring it on!

Pick up a used 24-105 and keep the rest for a 17-40...  I find the extra reach of the 24-105 very useful on my 5DIII...  Enjoy it buddy! :)

Hi all, went to Nagarhole (Kabini) last weekend and was lucky to have seen and shot some leopards and tigers...  here are a few images...  it was my first safari real wildlife shoot, so any feedback welcome...  They are not perfect, but i'm happy, and learnt alot...  better ones next time i hope! :)

Taken with 70-200 IS II + 2xTC III at 400mm f/8.
