  • Here is my (better but not perfect) test. These are straight out of the camera JPEG (conversion from original RAW files with no PP). It's not exactly a perfect test, I haven't had time for that, ...
  • Hi everyone, Thanks for the replies.  I've been offered a couple of options from Amazon: 1) Keep the lens and receive 25% discount on the purchased price 2) Return it for a full refund (I will buy ...
  • Yes there's a CPL attached.  I didn't have 0 sec anti-shock enabled as it's an EM5 I'm using, so there's no option for that, unfortunately.
  • Replied in well...
    I thought that by shooting at f2.8 I wouldn't have a shallow enough depth of field, I normally don't go above f5.6 but I wanted to make sure the whole scene would be in focus (including the ...
  • Hi everyone, I bought the 12-40 f2.8 back in April and have been using it as my walkaround daytime lens with the EM5. Recently, I've begun to notice that some of the pictures don't seem as sharp as ...
  • I have the 20mm and have just purchased the 25mm (although I've not used it yet).  The only reason I bought the 25mm was the fact that the 20mm caused banding at high ISOs on my EM5 - something of ...
  • Decent attempt at what I imagine to be an EXTREMELY difficult job with that lens.  Personally, I would've tried to work some improvements in pp to remove the noise (visible and distracting when ...
  • Hi, I really enjoyed your pictures, nice to see such pastoral scenes whilst stuck in a busy town in Vietnam. The only image I'm not keen on is the one with the cherries - a good composition but ...
  • Created discussions Cropping - C&C appreciated
    Hi, I was at a jazz festival in Saigon some time ago and took a ton of photos using the EM5 and 75mm.  Due to the number of people at the the festival and my position in the crowd I got rid of a ...
  • Hi, I want to purchase the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4 but I'm struggling to find a place in Ho Chi Minh city that sells it. Do any of you lovely folk know where I can purchase one in HCMC/Saigon, or a ...
  • Hal - thanks for the kind words.  I will continue to shoot and hopefully upload some more soon. Terry - great shot and I 100% agree with you, Vietnam is a photographer's heaven!
  • Thank you for the compliments and the constructive criticism. I do find composition a real struggle and often don't realise the potential of a shot until I review it again on the monitor. I'm ...
  • Created discussions Vietnam: first impressions
    I moved to Vietnam three months ago to teach English.  During this time I've taken quite a few photos, and here are a few samples. I'm a very inexperienced photographer, even though I've been ...
  • Is that Andromeda in the top left of your last image?  Very cool.  And to think that it's hurlting towards the Milky Way makes this a special image, too, almost apocalyptic even.  I must try some ...
  • Anyone know of a cheap, effective flash diffuser for the Oly bundled flash (i.e. that given with the EM5 and EM1)?  I've started using it in extreme low light situations and forced down its ...
  • Is it only Photoshop that would allow you to erase the chair?  I have LR and Photo Ninja and would like to try and recreate this, if you don't mind of course!
  • I'm no expert but to me that looks really good.  How do you do this type of photography?  I have an EM5 which I believe can superimpose two exposures - is that what you did?  Cool image though.
  • I'm no expert in composition but I absolutely adore the second shot.  Not sure why, it just kinda lives for me. I really feel like I'm at the edge of the water, hunkered down, watching this ...
  • Selling my Olympus 12-50mm. Optically and cosmetically sound.  Comes with JJC lens hood and Hoya Pro-1 CPL Filter. Less than a year old.  £180 plus £5 p&p (special delivery to UK addresses only). ...
  • Hi, I don't currently own an EM1 but let me give you my advice about the switch from a fixed lens to an interchangeable system. I moved from a PL LX5 to the OMD EM5.  My main reason for switching ...
