Mostly here for the Sigma talk

But I'm also interested in astrophotography (AP), and making big - real big - landscape panoramas. For those, I generally use a Pentax K-1, with pixel-shift and focus-stacking. I also like the Pentax for AP because the controls are well laid out and easy to use in the dark.

I've been looking for a small, light travel camera to replace my ageing Sigma DP Merrills, and have settled on an Olympus E-M5III. I was more than a little skeptical about M43 cameras, but so far, so good.

Now, how about an "Abstract" forum? There was none in DP Review, and so there is none here, but it'd be nice.

We are discussing atm the forum structure internally. We will probaly do a survey today or tomorrow to get a better feeling what is in the highest demand.
Welcome David, from SE Wisconsin!
I like your photos!

I was a Pentax fan for a long time; they really put a lot of thought into their designs. Now, I'm shooting M43 (EM10.3) and FF. (Nikon Z5)

For a travel camera, an Olympus E-PL camera with the Zuiko pancake motor zoom lens might be a good option; it's a great little lens for daytime. Then a 17/1.8 for when night falls.

Enjoy your stay.
