  • Some of you may not know how quick and easy it is to fix blurry moving water and trees when using the new high resolution mode of the new Oly E-M5 Mark 2, so this is for your benefit.  You others ...
  • I use these old lenses for stacking images of still lifes using a stacking program such as Zerene Stacker. Why do I use manual lenses? Because when you rotate the focus ring you know what distance ...

  • Replied in My solution
    Interesting comment.  The purpose of my various covers is to avoid the sun doing damage to the EVF while hiking between shots.  When hiking, the camera's power will be off and the EVF cover will ...
  • Replied in My solution
    When my new EM5 II arrives I intend to solve the problem.  I have thought of several solution that I will try, and you can try if you are handy with basic tools. 1:  The most simple solution is a ...
  • I tested the lens on landscapes because I take mostly landscapes and that is my intended use.  As for why so many test a lens on a landscape, I can see several reasons doing so would better reveal ...
  • I should have added a variation that would be simpler for the Olympus engineers to design and also simpler for the user.  Do not have the split screen that I suggested.  In the stacking mode have ...
  • I take stacked images for both still lifes and landscapes.  From the viewpoint of Olympus I can see problems in designing this feature to the satisfaction of us "stackers" compared to satisfying ...
  • What is an OOC JPEG?  These are JPEGS straight from my E-PL5 at its LSF setting.  There has been no post sharpening.  The camera's noise filter setting is on STANDARD. I also took RAW and my ...
  • Replied in Here is why
    I bought the Pany lens because of multiple advantages: Rave review by cameralabs.com compared to the Oly 45mm, An apparent corner and edge lack of sharpness for the Oly 45mm per camerlabs (some on ...
  • WARNING:  THESE FULL SIZE IMAGES MAY LOAD SLOWLY For landscapes I wanted to know if my new Panasonic 42.5mm F1.7 lens is noticeably sharper than my 3 year old Panasonic 14-45mm 3.5-5.6 ASPH lens at ...
  • Replied in F/1.7
    It is the f/1.7 lens.
  • Replied in Crappy image
    I forgot to say that this is not meant to be a good landscape.  It isn't.  It is simply an image posted full size for those wanting to see how sharp the lens is and to see what can be done with ...
  • I have several of the Nikkor 50mm Ai lenses, plus a Nikkor 28mm AIS plus three Canon FD 50mm.  They make sharp prints, but that is not my main use for them.  I like to do focus stacking of both ...
  • Created discussions My first with Pany 42.5mm lens
    My Pany 42.5mm arrived today. Here is a JPEG shot using it. I used my Oly E-PL5, tripod, 2 second delay plus anti-shock, F4, and ISO 200. This image has not been altered except for auto-contrast ...
  • Sounds like what might work is a periscope. I do not know if there is one on the market that could look into the EVF on the low end and into your eye at the high end. Amazon has many toy ...
  • I think your ridicule of this fine gentleman is over the top and unjustified. In multiple postings you have ridiculed any test that is contrary to your opinion. I keep an open mind. For now the ...
  • I have an open mind for each of these lenses. I try not to be an armchair "expert" and instead have paid to have portions of Gordon's Prague images that he took with his Oly lens printed 2'x3' to ...
  • This discussion seems to be getting too extreme. Both the Oly 45mm and the Pany 42.5mm lenses appear to be sharper than needed for even large landscape prints. The 16MP sensor is incapable of ...
  • Your high res test was at 17mm FL, the normal at 12mm.  No wonder the high res looks sharper.  Please repeat the test using the same focal length. Thanks
