My main lens is the Oly 12-40 2.8 lens. My next most used lens is the 75-300. The full frame equivalents are a 24-80 and a 150-600. I only shoot RAW images so I do process every image. I don't normally spend a lot of time on each one but each one is processed.

NO WAY!  Not even in 10 years IYAM!

You sound just like the old film shooters back in the day that thought digital would never overtake film. I knew from the moment I saw an image from a 2 megapixel camera, that the film days would be ending sooner rather than later.

Yes it is and if they are the photo blue ones corrected for daylight color, they put out a tremendous amount of heat. I have two of those and man they get hot.

Cynical enough? :)

You may not be far from wrong. I think it's been around longer than they are telling people. I swear I believe I contracted it back in mid December. I have never chilled that way in my life. I have never coughed so much in my life. It took me 8 weeks to get over it mostly. I still cough more than normal. My wife got it and it was just as bad. She still coughs more than normal. My mom took it as well as my niece who handled my phone for a few minutes. They both went through an illness like they never had before. People may say I am crazy because it wasn't in the U.S at that time, but I'll never believe anything other than I had it.

Won't happen anytime soon but the day will come. I would say 10 years or so just guessing.

You could just leave it out in the open for 4 days and the virus will die on it's own. It doesn't survive forever on inanimate objects.

If you want real world samples of Olympus image quality, look at my gallery. I don't claim to be anything special as a photographer so what you see there should be an example of what you can expect. It's up to you to decide if the image quality is good enough. You can also view my stuff on Instagram at randymyers6116.

amatula wrote: Hi Glen,
I have not purchased yet; just demo'd.
I did like the images even with the kit lens, but I am hoping for an affordable VR wide angle F2.8 lens. And I loved the weight and feel of the camera in my small hands.

Nikon has a sale on the body and both kit lens, which is tempting: www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/produ...meras/1633/z-50.html

I have narrowed my search (thus far!) to this camera, the Fuji X-T30/X-T3, or the Canon EOS RP.

I might suggest posting a separate post and asking people who own the camera to offer feedback. You might include what your wife is looking for and her background. E.g. I am looking for:

- lightweight
- good vibration reduction either in the lens and/or body
- full manual control
- excellent quality
- weather-sealing if possible as I hike with the camera
- best quality wide angle lens I can put on the camera, new or used, for under $500 (for now!)
- creative functionality, such as focus stacking

All the best!
Annie

If you haven't handled the X-T30 I suggest you do so before buying. The image quality is identical to the X-T3 but it is almost too small. It feels a little cramped and fiddly to me. You other choices are very good and I am partial to Nikon and Fuji because I like the colors. I am sure the Canon is fine but I have no experience with the brand except for their printers. If you are looking for a cheap alternative, you may want to consider an Olympus E-M10II. The only reason I suggest this is the lens lineup tends to be less expensive than the others. I moved to Olympus from Nikon for size and weight along with cost. If you have already eliminated it from consideration that's fine. The choices you have listed are all good cameras but I suggest you make your purchase on the lens lineup. We generally change camera bodies but it gets expensive real quick if you change lens mounts and go with a new system. Good luck and enjoy whichever one you choose.

The difference is the stronger the bulb, the more working distance from the light you have. If you get close enough, then the 150W will be fine. I would suggest you look at cool lights though. I think they tend to last longer and you won't accidently get burned. Hot lights need to be handled carefully when they are still hot.
