14 Sep When GAS becomes stupid | Stockografie
I know, I know. In my last blogpost I told you all about my switch from X to F and now this. I am hear to tell you that the X is back. How stupid is that, you will think. And rightly so. After just a few weeks of using the very, very good Olympus Pen-F with the 12mm f/2 and 17mm 1.8 prime lens and the 12-40 2.8 Zoom lens I figured that I was and maybe still am caught in the terrible spiral of GAS. Is the Olympus Pen-F a better camera than my trusty X-T1 was? Am I taking better pictures than before? What about the size and weight? Well, the Olympus Pen-F is a great camera but not really better than the Fujifilm X-T1 is. It is just different. I definitely am not taking better pictures than before. The size of the body itself is about the same as the X-T1. The lenses are smaller. If I look at the size of the 12-40 2.8 in comparison to the XF 16-55 2.8 then size does become noticeable. I know all about the more shallow depth of field and stuff. But an f/2.8 lens no matter how large the sensor behind it is, is always letting in the same amount of light onto the sensor…..
