  • I scanned all the shots I took with the 12-40 last year. I'm a bit mystified by how it behaves. I didn't see any purple flare in the first 9 months. In the last three it has been pretty common. ...
  • No, not kidding. I shoot a lot of wide angle and am use to flare, but I find what I get from the 12-40 to be very ugly and hard to deal with. I would prefer what I get from the 7-14. It is more ...
  • I like the lens, but mine will sometimes create some very ugly flare.  Big purple blotches that can't be corrected, sometimes just large areas with no contrast. It is not easy to predict when I ...
  • 4GD photo made one (OP-150) for the 150mm F2.0. Foot looks like it is about the same size. Has anyone tried it with the 40-150?  I think I am going to sell the 150 and get the 40-150, and ...
  • Just saw this thread, and glad you got it fixed. I had problems with the 150+EC20.  For me it was intermittent. Would just stop communicating, sometimes mid shoot. Missed a couple of good shots.  I ...
  • At least mine does. I posted about it a couple of months ago, but haven't seen any other complaints about the 12-40. I find it difficult hard to predict when it will happen, but when it does it is ...
  • Replied in UV recap.
    A quick trip around the web: Most photo pundits write that UV filters are no longer required. Modern lenses, glue in lenses, filters on sensors all block UV. Anders has demonstrated that the new ...
  • Closer to 7000 feet, no filters, likely UV sensitivity.  I have stopped getting UV filters for new lenses, never had much of a problem with 4/3 lenses, at least with 4/3's bodies. I am at sea ...
  • Oups.  Probably why search didn't find anything.
  • Created discussions Zuiko 12-40 flair
    I have been getting some rather nasty flair from my 12-40. The only processing was the EM1 profile in Lightroom. The only other wide angle lens I had with me was the bodycap fisheye The 12-40 flair ...
  • Key word being system.  That would be my heaviest configuration in that focal length. I also have smaller slower lenses for real portability. This is the portable configuration for the Nikon. Anoth ...
  • A lot of lens swapping when I'm trying not to disturb a sometimes shy bird 6' away. Also seems like a lot of compromise to avoid using a high end Zuiko, not sure why I would want to do that. The ...
  • The overlap between different format's isn't that great. You can do pretty much anything with either FF or APS-C or 4/3's. Easy to get shallow DOF with FF, but you can get pretty close (close ...
  • I have had to 50-200 for years, and got the 75-300 to have a lighter option for hiking. At the time I didn't like the way the four thirds lens focused on the M5. I didn't expect much from the ...
  • OI.share version 2.4 works on a iphone. Can select movie mode from the remote. It does not need to have video selected on the mode dial on the M1. I don't think it was there in earlier versions, at ...
  • It was pretty close.  Birds didn't mind the camera, but didn't like the shutter.  I would like to see an electronic shutter in a future body. It would also be useful it ishare could start a video.
  • Depends on the subject which is more objectionable. I frequently prefer the mild distortion of the bodycap over the stretched corners of a rectilinear. This is an uncorrected 9mm bodycap shot.  ...
  • I wanted to get shots of hummingbirds coming and going. Can't track the little buggers, so I used a really wide angle for the DOF, and put it really close to the feeder - because the birds are ...
  • I was in one of the most beautiful parts of the Olympic National park last week, but after hiking for a couple of days to get there we were met by unexpectedly bad weather, but on the way out we ...
