  • I'm actually looking for wide angle to normal perspective with close focusing capabilities as a general purpose lens every day lens. Sony's 50mm for the A& only focuses down to 19 7/8". A 100mm is ...
  • Thanks for the heads up. I currently shoot with a Pentax K5SIIS and a 35mm f2.8 macro which gives me the 35 mm equivalent of a 52mm lens. I'm looking for the same in a full frame. The Pentax has a ...
  • Out of curiosity, with the adapter how large does it make the camera kit? Thanks. David
  • Created discussions Sony A7 and Minolta Macro lens
    I'm considering picking up a Sony A7II for the full frame detail in macro pictures and for a relatively light carry around camera. I'm old school and like the simplicity and size of a 35 or 50mm ...
  • Thanks for the feedback. By the way, what's a Q? Regards David
  • Created discussions Sony A7 shutter noise
    I’m shooting a Pentax K5SII but am tempted by the new Sony A7II. Does anyone have both and know if the shutter is much louder on the Sony or comparable? The Pentax has a nice subdued solid feel ...
  • Thanks again, Abbazz. Vignetting looks reasonably under control for most of my purposes and the 35mm would almost be my walk around lens as it is on my K5SII. I like a wide to normal perspective ...
  • Thanks Abbazz. Which model Sony A7 do you have? I was wondering how it compared the the K5SII which is nicely subdued. The pictures you posted illustrated the vignetting nicely. Are they from jpeg? ...
  • You say a bit of vignetting at infinity but still usable. Little enough that raw can clear most of it? Do you have image to the corners? And at close distance, macro and in between, do you get full ...
  • Thank you David for the information regarding the Sony A7RII's shutter sound I'm considering getting one with a prime and am currently shooting a Pentax K-5SII which has a week damped shutter but ...
  • Thank you so much for the help. Shortly after I posted my question I discovered what you suggested totally by accident but certainly would have needed this help if providence had not steeped in. I' ...
  • The 17mm f1.8 out of the blue has stopped auto focussing. The screens indicates MF and AF Mode is not accessible in the menus. When I switch to the compact zoom or the 25mm f1.7 auto focus works ...
  • In the specifications it indicates a tilting screen and in the text it t says it not.????

  • I just picked up an OMD-10 with the EZ lens and plan to carry it and possibly the 17mm and 25mm in a front rack bag like this:
  • That's been my experience as well. After being on the fence with all the reviews I thought I'd pick up the 25 f1.8, the 17 f1.8 and the 14-42EZ. I figured I would have two sharp lenses and would ...
  • After reading this forum and going back and forth with my very understanding dealer, I ordered the OMD-10 with the 17mm f1.8, the 25mm f1.8 and the 14-42EZ zoom. Also as the camera took three ...
  • I found the Lumix GF-2 with the 14mm f2.5 lens new for less than the cost of the lens alone ($299.95) so have picked it up as a back up body as well as a tiny wide lens to cover any potential ...
  • I made the same choice and am awaiting an OMD-10 with the 14-42EZ and the 17mm f1.8. Let us know how it works for you. David vloher wrote: I was debating over the 14-42 EZ and the Panasonic 12-32. ...
  • Replied in E-M10 Kit
    I've just ordered the OM D-10 body only and the EZ lens from my local shop. There is currently a promotion where if you buy the body and lens at the same time you get $100 off the lens. It is a ...
  • Sounds like a good plan for my way of shooting. Where can you get the Panasonic compact zoom by itself without the GM-1?. David
