  • OK, I've posted two scenes where I switched between the 14-42 and the 12-40 and used the same focal length and aperture. The exif should be there. My flickr export isn't full resolution, so you...
  • Replied in 12-40 macro
    This morning I took a 3 hour camera walk, which featured a lot of macro or "macro" work. Close stuff. I borrowed my wife's new E-M10, and I put the 60/2.8 macro on that. My E-M5 got the 12-40. I...
  • This morning I took a 3 hour camera walk, and on that I tested the 12-40 against the 14-42II at the same focal length and apertures. The 12-40 does have some hazing and hot-spotting in it, but...
  • Replied in Some examples
    I read somewhere that the blades are a major problem with IR, so that would make sense too. But I used to stop down as a matter of course with the Nikkor since it wasn't focus corrected, and that...
  • Replied in Some examples
    I just looked a bit harder at these, and it seems that the lens in infrared, perhaps more dramatically than in visible light, prefers its sweet spot of around f4. f8 seems noticeably worse than...
  • Replied in Some examples
    Yes, but the 06 image is at 22mm and directly toward sun and reflection off of snow! I'd expect the lens to fall on its face in infrared here! So, pretty good. If I had time I would have liked to...
  • Replied in Some examples
    Unfortunately, nothing great, just what I managed this morning before a client meeting. There is actual snow on the ground, so the white isn't just IR. These are right out of the camera, with no...
  • This is preliminary, as I haven't really pounded on it, and the weather hasn't been great for IR photography. I really didn't expect it would work, since none of my other high-end Oly lenses are...
  • Replied in Photosmith!
    I bailed on it. It was very, very slow to upload to the cloud, and sometimes 7 seconds or so to view each image on the iPad. I could upload about a thousand images in a full day at the computer....
  • I don't think you really want to be working with RAW files on your iPad CPU, but the nice screen and the portability make it good for viewing. I don't think there are keywords or ratings? If so,...
  • I'm quite excited about this, but I have yet to initiate a sync and see how it goes. I have some work-work to do today, but I'll let this go in the background and see what happens. I love to look...
  • Thank you very much for this! I've set up the E-M5 this way (rec activates manual focus, mode 3, and then fn2 is the S-AF). Otherwise the half-shutter does it. We'll see if I go for the extra...
  • Yes, I very much prefer to have the focus and shutter release separate. I've made about 90,000 exposures with this kind of setup (mostly on Nikon DSLRs). I think setting the fn2 button to focus...
  • Three things with this camera and this lens for macro photography: 1) This is a pretty-much unbeatable combination, though other mft bodies with this lens will of course work well. 2) The...
  • Fotoloco wrote: and although long, it is skinny making it easy to fit in bag. Not to knock the 60 macro, as it is one of my favorite lenses, if not my very favorite, lens ever -- but it is a...
  • Created discussions mysets with E-M5?
    I've had the E-M5 for a couple of months and only set out to make mysets this morning after thinking about it a lot. After creating the first one and going to set it to the Mode dial as I would on...
  • "worth it" is completely impossible for any of us to comment on. This depends on three things: your finances, the value you place on photography relative to those finances, and how you use your...
  • I started doing IR photography in the late 70s with a little bit of roll film and mostly 4x5 sheet film. I wasted a lot of film but got a few great images. I worked with it through the years, and...
  • Here are two images of the same dragonfly. One is with the zoom, the bottom two with the f2.8 60 macro, both on the E-PL5 exported from Lightroom, shot RAW and processed with Camera Natural. It was...
  • Maybe my copy isn't so good. For one thing, the blur has a very nervous quality: better if everything is in focus. For another thing, this is the only lens I've ever had that obviously had a...
