On Candles in Notre Dame de Paris in the Canon EF 28/1.8 challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations on the first place - and thank you for participating.

An excellent example to show that sharp cornes does not always make the image.

rgds/Kjeld

PS: I do think that you could have done a smoother job with the upper left corner - the cut in the dark area is quite obvious when viewed at 100% :-)

I miss the discussions :-(

Being a user of both a m43 system and a 24x36 mm system, I'd say this is certainly a nice lens and an improvement to the m43 lens array, but surely there will always be reason for m43 users to "envy full frame L glass" - at least until they bring out a 12-35 f/1.4 lens - and if they do, then what will be the point of using m43 anyways? It would likely be larger than a "full frame" 24-70 f/2.8.
So lets enjoy what m43 offers in terms of small size and not pretend that it is a replacement for larger apperture lenses.

Perhaps the fish needed more luck than technique to endue this unusual pet handling! :-(

grahamdyke: Well I removed the Panasonic badges from mine and underneath there was a Leica badge. In view of this I ran outside to my car and promptly removed the VW badges and low and behold underneath there were Skoda badges :-)

Hi grahamdyke

Argh - you were out of luck, or you need to dig deeper - I removed the Skoda badges of our car and underneath there were rings ... OOOO

In reply to:

IcyVeins: As soon as the 12-35mm and 35-100mm f/2 zooms come out, M4/3 will have a full lens system that can compete with DSLRs

m4/3 already competes with SLR! Just not on every parameter - like DOF or noise - but it competes quite well on portability. I own a full frame dSLR as well as 300 and 400 mm f/2.8 lenses that can produce extremely shallow DOF, but I am still going to purchase a m4/3 system to complement for portability - that is if Canon does not announce something simmilar very very soon.

On Adalia bipunctata in the Ladybug! (FULL COLORS ONLY) challenge (8 comments in total)

Yes, it is the only one I have made like that so far, so it is indeed a once in a life time :-)

At the time I spent most of a day reshooting the beetle taking off, recapturing it and placing it back on the leaf. Only very few shots came out usefull and only this one was ... well, pretty successful :-)

On Adalia bipunctata in the Ladybug! (FULL COLORS ONLY) challenge (8 comments in total)

Hi

Yes, it should not have said "shutter speed" but rather "exposure time", as it was taken using a manual flash set to minimum output, which I found somewhere should correspong to 1/50000th of a second.

On Piazza San Pietro in the Rome, Italy challenge (4 comments in total)

Hi jkats

Thanks a lot. I had the camera on a tripod and looked through the viewfinder. It was a little awkward position but enabled faily good framing.

Hi Ginorio

It is not a stitch - it is a single image shot with the Sigma 8 mm fish eye pointing straight up in the sky.
