    I don't do video, well, almost never. I have grandkids that I go to the park with and am able to catch (at times) them with manual focus lenses - I have the PL25, the O45 and 75 (and more). Each ...
  • Replied in With respect
    I believe there is that "something" look to the Voigts - and it's not all about how sharp. Then there's the experience of just using it, holding it in your hand... f/1.2 f/0.95
  • There are adapters for mounting a lot of different manufacturers lenses to a m4/3 body. I'm not familiar with the Soligor name, you just need to know what the mount is (Nikon, Canon, or...?). So a ...
  • Such a very touching ceremony and documentation. I don't know anything of that culture but your post has me doing some research. Thank you for sharing such a personal moment.
  • One more combination that hasn't been suggested that ill throw out, the two very excellent Pany 2.8 zooms. The 12-35 & 35-100 f/2.8 zooms are smaller than the Oly 2.8 zooms, fantastic build, ...
  • Great shot Roel! I love my Rokinon FE - mine seems to focus just right at the infinity mark. Things circular really work well as FE subjects - not defished. A recent shot from the State Capital in ...
  • Results are great, especially the head shots. Were you using a tripod? I like to use my 105/2.5 AIs with my EM5 and use both the EVF zoom feature and sometimes the faux focus peaking... I get ...
  • Should be an easy thing to do with a card reader such as this and the file manager that is already installed on your phone. http://www.amazon.com/MAXAH%C2%AE-Adapter-Connection-function-MX-CM-1/dp/ ...
  • I recently used the HDR feature for a lot of shots at a Botanical Garden. I also had a lot that had some ghosting visible, and I had some good successes as well. The camera's align algorithms ...
  • Replied in 'M' quick shot
    Thanks guys, its a marvelous little combo.
  • Created photos 'M' quick shot
    Recent family gathering with the 'M' and the 22
  • I've started using this as my default import preset for my E-M5 files. This is a great preset you've created! I'm finding that it recovers highlights better than anything else I've tried to do, ...
  • Steve, I know this is a cliché but I enjoy slowing down and using the manual focus lenses, but I still have my AF versions available when I want them. It is a beautiful lens isn't it? I did a ...
  • It's even more fun to say "stopped down to f/1.4" :-D I could almost see getting the Voigt 17 and 25, and getting rid of everything else... almost. Here's one more sample for you - a head and ...
  • I have the Voigt and the Oly 45/1.8 and have used the Voigt more often than 45. The Voigt is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship and is a joy to shoot with IF you like to use manual focus lenses. ...
  • Replied in Maybe.....
    I try not to be to very argumentative about such things :-) though I am pretty opinionated! I should have clarified - I was referring to the AF tracking sucking - the single focus acquisition speed ...
  • Now TEdolph, you're being a little unfair, I know the E-M1 is supposed to do better at focus tracking but that body is hardly a fair comparison to the 'M'. Pretty much all of the rest of the m4/3 ...
  • Replied in m4/3 and EOS M
    Well, I suspect you know that pretty much all of the current m4/3 bodies are 16mp, not 18. the difference between those numbers is pretty insignificant in my experience. The first and very obvious ...
  • Replied in m4/3 and EOS M
    I'm a m4/3 shooter primarily and also have the EOS M with the 22 and 18-55 zoom. I like the EOS and use it to travel with so I can leave my much more expensive primary kit at home. I don't find ...
  • Created photos Through the window
    Flew home today out of General Mitchel airport (Milwaukee, WI) I've taken a lot of shots through the window of the planes, usually haze and scratchy windows really lower the quality of the results. ...
