  • Not for sheer IQ in my experience. I own and use them both, and find them very close regarding optical IQ. I also have the 14-35/2.0, which easily beats them both (but it's bigger and bulkier though).
  • Yes, that is of course an option. Up to now I have preferred using antishock to prevent such motions, because it is more flexible w/ several delay options, compared to the 2s or 12s self-release ...
  • Does this mean that if you want a longer delay for some reason, say like 1/2s, you'd loose out on the electronic 1st curtain, as that applies to 0s only? Because even w/ a longer delay set, the ...
  • Wow - if this holds true all over the board, Oly deserve some serious kudos for this one! Not many fw updates as valuable as this, I dare say :)
  • Wow - sure will! I have not read neither that thread nor the specs for the fw update, so my suggestions were just kinda guessing as to what such an 0s delay may do. I thought the E-M1 had no ...
  • There's already a 1/8s delay option, so why introduce in fw an option simply replicating that? And the E-M1 has no electronic 1st curtain. In that case no SS problem would occur in the first place ...
  • In my case I used both native 4/3 Zuikos and the m4/3 12-40, but I believe that's got nothing to do with it, as the cam states empty batteries directly at startup, regardless of what lens is ...
  • I must say I'm disappointed about the BLN-1 batteries in the E-M1. The cam is stated cold proof down to -10ºC, but I guess that doesn't help much when the batteries don't cope. This weekend we ...
  • Created discussions DPR Challenges - stats
    Just for the heck of it, I looked at the overall stats for my DPR challenge entries (as of now). Not much to brag about I'm afraid: Out of a grand total of 108 entries, my average result is place 40,2
  • Submitted a challenge entry Frozen heart
    The deep November nights inevitably takes their toll in the end - in nature, in life, sometimes even in your heart. But look, my friend, the sun still shines, and one of these days this frozen heart is surely bound to melt...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Dinosaur
    The white naked scull of a Raven (Corvus corax) lies like a dinosaur relic, somewhere in the wide heath expanse in Varanger, Finnmark county, northern Norway.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Sunken sun
    A lone sunflower still holds on to life, six weeks after the first snowfall, way into the dark Norwegian winter. But come the odd day with milder weather like here, and it acts like solstice itself... :)

  • Submitted a challenge entry Mirage moon
    Where I stand it's -19ºC (-2ºF), but the temperature varies with height, making the air very unstable, as it's comprised of constantly changing/floating/inverted air layers of different temperatures. This causes heavy mirage distortions to both the moon and the distant landscape. Here it's even further enhanced by the long telephoto perspective, actually making a sharp image difficult to achieve at all, as the vista is captured through several kilometers of unstable and shivering air masses. Hence not technically the best picture ever, but the mood sort of justifies it nonetheless... :)

    A bright rainbow embraces the landscape, as a heavy July shower passes by at sunset. A world of true color, lasting for a mere minute, before it all fades into dusk and darkness...

  • Good! I like to add some facts to such pictures. Surplus for some, educational for others :) I know the feeling! :/ But by all means - don't listen to your mother! I mean, why start now... :-D
  • Replied in Winter pines
    Falling snow sweeps and swirls with the wind through the forest, clinging on to the pine trunks, where it slowly melts on this relatively mild day, making the pines take on some warm colors, in an ...
  • All these are taken with the heavier SHGs, and also with the HLD-7 attached. Those combos do not reveal any shutter shock at all, as far as I can see. That said, I haven't directly compared the ...
  • Cool! :-D Kids do detect such things so easily! Guess next time I will deliberately try look for such "creatures", and try do a series specifically on that topic! But as of now I'm afraid mild ...
  • Replied in Sorry, wrong tab
    I meant to post this under the "Photos" tab, but it ended up u/ "Discussion" somehow. Sorry about that. Mod: Move it if you like :)
  • Well, to finish off my former threads about the E-M1 and Olympus blue, I'm showing some full daylight pictures as well. All shot w/ Zuiko SHGs, where I also used a CPL (circular polarizer) on the ...
