  • Don't get me wrong; I have little regard for anything Leica that isn't M or S.  But everything Panasonic knows, about making lenses, comes from Leica.  The T lenses will be all Leica.  Whether ...
  • Commented on Readers' Showcase: Raymond Pang article

    At the raw level, it comes down to how you develop the photos. You can get Olympus or Fuji colours, from a Canon raw file (and I assume easily, depending on your assortment of software, plugins...

    Lovely set of images.

  • I think there will be more Pens, but not nearly so often.  Also, since Panasonic and Sony have demonstrated that  a built in EVF, with this form factor, is entirely feasible, I suspect Olympus are ...
  • I'm unlikely to be after the bokeh*, and the wider the lens, the easier it is to shoot, hand held, at lower shutter speeds. * Though the bokeh, from wide primes, can be very nice if you can get it.
  • Both the 12-35 and 12-40 render images with a pleasing micro contrast.  Could this be mistaken for absolute sharpness, when comparing with the older Olympus lens?
  • Well, the 12-40 will easily replace the 11-22, while the Micro Four Thirds version of the 40-150 kit can be had pretty cheaply. You can grow our your new system from there. You'd only notice a ...
  • Never been there, but I did spend a lot of time in Fiji, which is very similar. It's not just the quantity of the sunlight, but the quality. In the summer, it's bright enough to burn you through...

  • Thanks to eBay, I've acquired more lenses than I ever intended to.  I see the 12-40 as my one lens  for travel.  That doesn't mean I wouldn't take other lenses, but if I have to pack light then ...
  • Replied in 17, 25 and 45
    Though my 17 is the much maligned f2.8 lens.  Should I get the 17mm f1.8?  I very nearly did, but went for the 12-40 instead.
  • The halo is present in the OOC JPEG.  So, I'm going to have to revisit my camera's settings (either sharpness or contrast will be too high - I can check that in OV3, when I get a moment.  Here's ...
  • It is indeed there, and I'm utmost surprised.  The only time I've ever seen this, previously, is when selectively darkening the sky (though according to Adobe, clarity can also do this).  I'll see ...
  • Replied in Arrival
    Finally started processing photos in anger, from last November's holiday in the Canaries. Arrival, ©2014 Jason Hindle Taken with an E-P5, 25mm f1.8, 1/1250 @ f5.6.  OOC JPEG with minimal ...
  • Replied in Nice
    My only comment would be it might be a little more nice, with a little extra depth of field (i.e. more of the plant in focus, while still keeping the OOF background).
  • For the comments and the photoshoping.
  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    If you're fancying something with a bit of zoom, take a look at the Leica X Vario and the Panasonic LX100? It's quite a good market, at the moment, with plenty of choice.

  • Though I've read elsewhere that the E-M1 uses the best Panasonic sensor (well done Panasonic, if true). If shooting JPEG, it pays to shoot with no noise filtering (why the default should be set to ...
  • @ 12 mm Salford Quays @ 12mm, ©2015 Jason Hindle And @ 40mm Zip-wire flyer, © 2015 Jason Hindle And in-between: NV Buildings, ©2015 Jason Hindle I love this lens!
  • Kodak/Olympus colour + one of Olympus's finest bits of class + a good eye!  Beautiful.
