  • A few early images from the X30 (not got to 100 shots yet).  I never quite got on with the X10/20 but early impressions are that, although there haven't been any gains in image quality, the X30 is ...
  • And finally we get there..... Slightly narrower...because it's not the same FOV as a 50mm lens.  It's equivalent to 60mm. Same height...because you're comparing a 4:3 sensor with 3:2 aspect ratio S ...
  • Not quite - it's the equivalent of 60mm field of view but I agree it's a great lens...I have one too, and also highly recommend its longer 60mm sibling. -- http://thephotographersblock.wordpress.com ...
  • I love my E-M1.  Can't comment on how it compares to Sony but unless you are a shallow depth of field addict, then there's precious little different in image quality between APSC and m43 nowadays, ...
  • Replied in First attempts
    Close!  Samyang 85/1.4.  I was trying to see how well I could focus at max aperture without magnifying the view in the EVF.  I think the answer is that for critical applications I need to do the ...

    That third picture is very sweet!
  • Replied in First attempts
    Not an obvious use for this new lens.  Anyone like to hazard a guess as to what it might be?  All I'm going to say at this stage is that I think I'm going to thoroughly enjoy using it despite some ...
  • They are both good lenses, but the 18-180 really needs an image stabilised body unless you are happy to concentrate mainly on using it outdoors on sunny days. The 14-150 Leica lens is extremely ...
  • ...but I quite like this photo from Brighton last Saturday afternoon: And this one from London: A handful of other shots from last weekend in my latest blogpost if you really have nothing better to ...
  • As recommended by others I use the Apple SD Card Reader to transfer to my iPad (mini).  I tweak images in Snapseed.  And then use Smugmug to backup to the Internet.  Never tried to read from the ...
  • Replied in E1- Resizing
    Very interesting landscape! And there I was thinking 5MP is enough😀. E-1 coming out to play on a London walk tomorrow evening .... (Others welcome to join; meet at St Pauls tube stn at 6pm and ...
  • I use my 43 lenses all the time on an E-M1 - 11-22, 14-54ii, 18-180 and 50-200. Very happy (indeed the ability to use those lenses, all of which I already had, was the main reason for buying the ...
  • Hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.  It's a very competent camera and a delight with smaller primes. I don't have a grip (but do have a Franiec grip on my D Lux, which I agree works ...
  • PS my card is a Lexar and has so far been fine -- http://thephotographersblock.wordpress.com http://jonschick.smugmug.com/
  • I think I read somewhere that the E-1 is happy with cards up to 8GB (which is what mine has) and I also use the slower 133X cards which I don't think is too much of an issue given the camera is no ...
  • Hi Tom - another vote for the 12-32 (similar size to 20mm pancake). Moved from the LUMIX body recently? Jon -- http://thephotographersblock.wordpress.com http://jonschick.smugmug.com/
  • SMC Pentax M 50mm/4 1:2 macro lens is worth searching out.  Superb lens, 1:2 not such an issue on the 43 crop sensor (same as the native Zuiko 50mm macro) and in common with many other MF Pentax ...
  • hmmm - the cats (three Siamese) have got Harry (Lab Retriever cross, good looking coward) very well trained so he knows his place (ie they dive in to eat his food first before he's allowed a ...
  • Created discussions My dog is officially rubbish
    Came home to this sight through our kitchen window this afternoon.  Harry couldn't be bothered to keep a neighbourhood fox half his size out of our 25 foot garden! It's a grab shot taken through ...
  • And at least some (generally more consumer end) m43 is also available in Currys/PC World (the major chain UK equivalent of Best Buy), with a wider range avallable from Jessops and all of the major ...
