  • it is the girl. My compliments to her and the photographer. Peter.
  • Replied in Sony FF?
    I read that you don't like DSLR style cameras, but speaking about sensors: the Sony A7 is said to show a very pleasant roll off. And I don't think posterization is an issue in portraits. Plus you ...
  • I don't think it will be a top seller, if it doesn't have one big or several smaller features that stand out. Look at the EM5II with it's 40+ MP mode - even if it is hardly ever usable, it is ...
  • I don't have a negative obsession with plastic: my G1 survived being dropped from 8 feet on stones and from 5 feeet on a street in still working but not unscathed condition. According to my taste ...
  • It very much looks as if Panasonic will give the G7 the dated (dpreview)16MP sensor, now that many people find a new sensor is over due. They did the same with the GH3 sensor in the G6. What could ...
  • Replied in Samyang 12 F2
    is suppposed to be a very sharp lens; it is reported to be soft in the corners with APSc sensors, but on MFT this should not be a problem. See http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55632035 Peter.
  • Replied in 12-35 mm f2.8.
    According to J.Steele in admiringlight.com the 12-35 is soft in the corners at longer distances. This kept me from considering it, though it costs less than the Olympus 12-40 in Europe. Peter.
  • Replied in Thanks very much
    for your help, specially fishywisht and camelguy. I tried the cameras in a shop and find the 70-200 F2.8 rather to (front) heavy to shoot hand held. The idea using the 2,8/180 is growing on me, at ...
  • I was considering the 28-70, it is about 250.- as a kit, and it is a nicely built lens. For this price I thought I can't go wrong, but obviously I can. Even at F8 the corners are terrible, while ...
  • Idiotes is Greek and originally means a person who likes do do things in his/her own, perhaps strange, way, an eccentric. Sorry to seem nit-picking, but perhaps Mr. Geier wants to be seen as ...
  • I am looking for a camera - lenses combination with the following requirements: (1) fast and precise AF in dark interiors (2) reliable face detection
  • are reportedly rather soft. Read the review by Jordan Steel at admiriglight.com. A pity he didn't review the 12-40 yet. Remeber that reviews normally evaluate charts, which of course are shot at ...
  • Replied in IQ
    No motion blurr, the pictures were taken at 1/1000s and 1/1300s. So no shutter shock either. It might be poor focus, but I don't see any really sharp parts in the pictures. Perhaps there is a wide ...
  • Replied in 17 or 20
    If you need AF speed and don't like AF noise, the 17/1,8. For sharpness and close focus, the 20/1,7. This is the lens I often take as only lens for hiking tours. Peter.
  • Replied in IQ
    Nice pictures, but the two at 100mm, the plane and the beauty, are quite soft. But of course, at F5,6 (fully open) and the long end of the zoom lens this is to be expected to a certain degree. Peter.
  • Created user reviews Sigma DN 60mm F2,8
    First I want to state that I my experiences with this lens result from using it on Panasonic G2 and G3 MFT cameras, AF might be different with the latest camera bodies. I bought the lens because I ...
  • I just read a review of the Olympus 40-150 F2,8 in a German magazin. They are full of praise of this lens. In their summary however they write about resolution: "In direct comparison to other MFT ...
  • Replied in 3 Examples
    all at 100% and short exposure times. 45mm Perhaps it is better at shorter distances? This one is taken at 45mm as well. 200 mm
  • Replied in Depends..
    ..on the subject: never use it for landscapes with trees, you will see softness even on a small screen. For portraits at 45mm or in the zoo it is ok. Bokeh is not bad either. Peter.
  • Replied in You are back!
    This is finally the old tedolf I missed! Nice to see you back here. Peter
