  • Nice to see you around here again. Hope everything is good in your side. I've been considering UWAs as of lately, as you can see on my recent thread, and every passing moment I keep looking at the ...
  • Yes, I've used the 4 defishing protections profile quite extensively. Still, it can't compare to a rectilinear UWA.
  • Beautiful images. Still not decided. If these images keep coming, I might lean towards the Panny. Is already very small compared with the Oly, as you mention, and is not that faster than the 9-18, ...
  • Oh you are in for a treat, Geoffrey. Can't wait for your portraits with it.
  • Got it. I've just been using it for a few weeks, and it is my main portrait lens for events, so maybe I won't use the 100mm focal length too often, and if I do, I now know that I must stop down at ...
  • Those images are breathtaking. Great work. Well, technically, the 7.5mm is not really mine. Is owned by the company I work for, but I get to use it all the time I want. But I'd like to have an UWA ...
  • Although not advisable. Just ignore it, is stabilizing your viewfinder, so is good to have it on. Specially on long lenses.
  • Are you sure your front element (or filter) wasn't fogged or something like that? I don't see any haloing.
  • I already have a FE, the Rokinon 7.5mm, although slow compared with the Oly, it gives me the FE effect when I need it. Everything seems to be pointing to the Oly 7-14mm, and after reading the ...
  • New cameras with new features are released all the time. Olympus and Panasonic are releasing new models every 6 months or less, and will get to the point, or even succeed what the 6300 is right ...
  • Quite frankly, for me, is the best lens I own. I didn't even considered the 40-150mm, for the same reason. Now, there is no flaw in the 35-100. From every corner that you look at it, sharpness is ...
  • Interesting. I wonder if the fact that the bulbous front element of the Olympus receding when zooming out helps to minimize flare, whilst the Panny stays the same for the whole range. I saw a ...
  • I might consider that option too, since is also on my wish list, although as a specialty lens, really, aimed at milky way and astro photography, but it might mean I could potentially use it defished. ...
  • Well, you got a point there, but is there really an issue with the E-M1? All reports I've read point to the E-M5 and other 16MP Sony sensor cameras. For the reviews I've read, is a pretty good ...
  • Created question thread Considering UWA options
    I used to have the 9-18mm, but let it go seeking improved light gathering and coverage abilities. My two only options are obviously the Olympus 7-14mm f:2.8 and the Panasonic f:4 version. I really ...
  • Replied in Dual charger
    Is the only charger I own that is capable of topping both OEM and 3rd parties, whichever the make, to its full capacity. Truly the best charger I've ever owned. Worth every penny. I was lucky to ...
  • Replied in Dual charger
    And with this adapter, you can even charge your batteries without an outlet, using the 12 volt input, and any cheap cell phone USB battery pack. Once it finishes charging, the charger will stop ...
  • I've been trying different chargers with very low success rate for quite some time, and a couple months ago, somebody recommended Watson, so I purchased a couple batteries and a dual slot ...
  • Ok, it finished charging, and the great thing is that, once it tops the battery, it stops taking power out of the pack, so you can leave it overnight, and it won't deplete the pack. To take the ...
  • I'm very interested in how the solar panel works. Its the only thing I still miss for a no-power out kit. Regarding the battery charger, I'd recommend a different approach: Get one of these, which ...
