"Top Picks from PMA 2009" - Digital Photography Podcast 167


The PMA 09 Show in Las Vegas featured hundreds of vendors ranging from top manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony, and Kodak, to lesser known names that often provide interesting discoveries. I have four top picks from the show, and I talk about each of them in this podcast.

Several mistakes in your podcast. The 14-140 lens is not a 24-280 equivalent, but a 28-280.

You cannot put all your Olympus lenses on the GH1 without an adapter, which makes you lose AF in mst of the 4/3 lenses.

The GH1 does not have built-in stabilization, something that got muddled in your discussion of the 4/3 system, so if you attached an Olympus lens you would have a kludge that required manual focusing and didn't have stabilization.

P.S. Your website's back-end is f***ed. It takes 45 seconds to accept a post before it is accepted.

Also, it would be nice to have some sort of acknowledgement of the post being accepted, even if it only said the post was awaiting moderation before appearing on the site.
