  • You don't need to apologize.  Great set of images.
  • On the mFTs cameras that is the same field of view as a 600mm lens on a FF and with the MC14 it will give the equivalent field of view as an 840mm on a FF.  While I would personally prefer it to ...
  • For the ones in the flowers, I used single large focus point and pre-focused just above the top of the flowers (only a few inches above the ground).  I use CAF with Rls Priority C = ON, which ...
  • The first looks like the focus is fine.  However, there may be some slight blur in the face caused by a slight movement of the dogs head.  I would have probably used 1/125 and ISO 200. The focus ...
  • I have been photographing flying bees for the last few days, waiting for my hummingbird to start eating from flowers in the garden (too many flowering trees currently). The length of the bumble ...
  • E-M5 - 2012, E-M1 - 2013, E-M10 - 2014, E-M5 MkII - 2015.  Based on this progression, the E-M1 MkII will probably be announced sometime as early as the end of 2015 or as late as Photokina 2016 - ...
  • Rattle - like dropping glass marbles on a tile floor - no.  A damped clunk when the camera is moved quickly in certain directions - yes.  Of course at my age, maybe I just cannot hear the short ...
  • Replied in Epilogue
    There is about a 1/20 probability of any digital camera needing repair in given year.  There appears to be little difference in manufacturers (Nikon probability appears to be a little higher).  So ...
  • Some FTs lenses will need calibration with the micro focus adjustment.  My 50-200 did not on the F-M1 (it did on the E5), but my FTs 70-300+EC14 did need adjustment on the E-M1, but not on the ...
  • The EC14+50-200 SWD on the E=M1 gives you the advantage of mechanically linked focus and auto focus, which with manual pre-focus makes it possible to get images which would be difficult with only ...
  • Very well done.
  • I don't think there is any image quality differences between the 50-200 MkI and the SWD.  It really depends on how you use the lenses, whether the difference between them is important.  ] I use the ...
  • I don't know why you think the SWD's are not good for reliability.  My 50-200 SWD (five years old), originally purchased for my E510, used very heavily on my E5 and now my E-M1 (has to be ...
  • I assume you are asking about your E-M1.  I typically use a single point (large or small - Rls Priority C = On, Frame Rate = High) when I am trying to follow smaller targets with very patterned ...
  • Replied in What happened?
    It looks like you chose all points focus and it focused on the little bump on the lower right of the image.  Use a single point focus point in the middle of the depth of focus field that you ...
  • The first Sharpness control is the same one that is set on the camera settings and the one used for jpeg images converted from RAW files, unless you change it. It is a general setting based on an ...
  • I cannot think of anything that would cause it not to recognize an mFTs lens.  However, I have had mine since they first came out, so I may have forgotten some setting.  The lens attachment on ...
  • Nice series.
  • I probably should have added these images to my previous post - images from a trip to St. John the Divine cathedral. The images were using the kit lens at 14mm and 17mm. The illumination in the ...
  • None of the lenses you listed are as wide as your kit lens, so you would be gaining about one stop with the f2.8 lenses, but not any advantage in terms of a wider lens for confined areas.  If you ...
