  • OK, I have been looking at the laurel blossoms - focus is indeed on different parts and perhaps the laurel is not in focus at all. You might be right there. Peter
  • All m43 kit zoom lenses are probably better. This lens is famous for its mediocre IQ; the Pana 14mm and 15mm and the Oly 12 mm are much better; probably even the 12-32. This is supposed to be about ...
  • I compared the pictures and did it again, but still arrive at the same conclusion: The FT lenses are a lot sharper!! First look at the 150@F2,8. Only beginning at F5,6 the 40-150 comes near to the ...
  • If you are convinced of this, sell it as fast as possible. You might find the zoom pictures don't satisfy you any more. Right now I use the 20mm for landscape, close ups, even portraits, ...
  • Interesting: I had a similar  thought a few days ago: FF for WA to short tele (about 80% of what I do) and long tele with a smaller sensor: 100-300 for m43, the Nikon 1 V3 plus 70-300 or even a ...
  • As a general rule birders don't like cats. About NR: what I see is shallow DOF. Peter.
  • Replied in Domke F10?
    The F10 is big enough for your lenses, but might be a little too small for easy use with the second body. I have the velcro covered and just use the brass carabine. There is a nice looking Crumbler ...
  • I use it mostly on the G3 and it is fine, very good at 45-150, still not bad at 200. No shutter shock - this phenomenon I only had with the 45-150, and then badly ... Peter
  • Comparing photozone results the 45-175 is optically the worst of these 3 lenses, but certainly there is some sample variation. However, if you look at JoseLuisHerranz's pictures, I have to say this ...
  • Replied in Jose Luis,
    thanks for sharing the links to your work - I couldn't stop looking at your portraits. While there were a few I didn't like, most of them are admirable and a lot are simply outstanding: I don't ...
  • is the fact that he considers different focus distances. While reviews relying only on resolution charts just test rather short (portrait) distances, for landscapes I also want to know how the lens ...
  • In Europe this is the price for the lens alone, the combination is EUR 2000 = USD 2500 Here EUR 1500 = USD 2000, (EUR prices including all taxes). If you don't want FF, I'd grab one of these. You ...
  • here the K-10x and K-20x, the K30x is in another part ort the review; this is all in German , but Google will translate. http://www.traumflieger.de/desktop/ballhead/ballheads3.php My K10-x is very ...
  • Replied in No.
    At least not, if you are interested in photographing birds in the open. Then 150mm and 210mm is too short. Get the 100-300 or a decent and fast MF 400mm lens, Another solution might be the Nikon 1 ...
  • Replied in Perfection?
    Perfection is an ideal and never reality. My lowly G1 and G2 produce very satisfactory results in ideal conditions: high but not too high contrast (otherwise the white clouds burn out or the ...
  • .. I don't mind at all. That's why you start another thread on this topic. ;) Where did you read this? Right. I don't doubt, they are essential for some. What I do want is a smaller lighter lens ...
  • According to reviews (LensTip, Photozone) the Olympus 12-40 is the best/sharpest WA lens for m43 with better resolution than the Pana 14, 15 and 20 and the Oly 12 and 17. Don't know about other ...
  • You are right, this is the sort of occation, where size and weight don't count. Peter.
  • Now here you go: M1 with 40-150 against D610 with Sigma 70-300 The Sigma at 300mm and F5,6 has exacly the same aperture diameter as the Olympus at 150mm at F2,8. OTOH, I'd rather have the IQ of the ...
  • Replied in Why? (nt)
    No doubt. But even here, you can see the difficulties with the blown yellow highlights in the Opel sign. Strangely, this is even worse with the GX7, although both pictures show about the same ...
