  • but yyr has just shown what can be expected when the photographer masters the lens. Great samples! Fisheye does some special tricks - and sometimes it is just that what is wanted and needed. I ...
  • Seems to be going fine for the first try-out...:-) I have the third one now, a great one. I have also set one button of the camera for magnify, and an other for the other manual focus help... With ...
  • Replied in PS
    The extension rings will "take off" some light - so the effective aperture is smaller than what the camera thinks. With natural light no problem, the meter will measure the light about right. With ...
  • Replied in No, but...
    Metz should work as well as any dedicated flash can - but nothing is perfect. First: The light beam is designed to be used on "ordinary" distances. Power might be too strong for macro. But after ...
  • About. They are both fisheyes, but there can be a bit variance with FOW. How much, hard to tell. Both say 180 degrees, but that can also depend a bit on focus distance. But basicly the same. There ...
  • Wide angles do some miracles, making closer things look larger then they are. So, even a small fish can look quite big when shot the right way in camera. Sigma 19mm is not too wide, pictures look ...
  • The Peleng really is an old design - heavy etc. I don't have it, but some years ago really thought about getting one - and then found an OM-Zuiko 8mm f2.8 for use. Old Russian optics are generally ...
  • The 75-300mm behaved much better with 10mm + 16mm extension tubes and Marumi D330 achromat than what I said in some previous threat... A couple of samples... A unknown fly (for me) on a willow ...
  • Not too bad... Anyway, I ordered the Em5 with12-50, both new, for 499€. Gx7 would have been 599 with 20mm lens... Not a bad price for either, but the better Is won. Thank You all for help! Jouko 'T ...

    I usually take some shots / subject with different settings or - in low light or long tele or macro work - to make sure there is a sharp shot. But that depends how hart it is to get the good one ... ...
  • I have the SWD-version of 50-200. Works fine with EM1, and that lens will get less use with the second body - very likely the EM5 now. Thank You for the answer! Jouko 'The best camera in the world ...
  • Replied in Thank you!
    This is good information for me... I knew there were some issues with the earliest models of Pana G-series with compatibility with FT-lenses, but that it is still so with the last models is a suprise.
  • I know the GX7 can handle about all the mFT-lenses well, and there are plenty of choises out there to pick. But I have these old FT-lenses, and they are so good I don't want to throw them away as ...
  • Bumbing up... No direct answers yet. Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with you when you need it' http://lehtokukka.smugmug.com/ http://jouko-lehto.artistwebsites.com/ http:// ...
  • Replied in Bobby and Adam,
    Here is a sample of the older 75-300. But taken handheld... A very windy day, moving branches everywhere around the bird. EM1, ISO 800, 300mm f8, 1/640s. A bit of cropping done, but not that much. ...
  • Wonderful shots up there! But very soft background;) Having the older 75-300, and being pleased with it, it is most likely that the new one is better because of better coatings - otherwise they ...
  • and I'll sell them off, to get a new one. I'm searching something about Ep3 size - a bit more or less, doesn't matter that much. EPM1-size is too small anyway, not large enough for my hands and ...
  • Tarkennuspiste näyttää olleen joko ylä- tai alaosassa kuva-alaa, ei keskellä.. Lopputuloksena kuva, joka näyttää epäterävältä - terävässä kuvassa tekstuurin olisi pitänyt olla terävä kuvan ...
  • I'm thinking about getting a GX7 for the backup + landscape camera /second body, to be used with Oly Em1. Takes the place of older EP3, so has to be better than that. But... How does the Pana GX7 ...
  • the general lenses are corrected to infinity or anyway futher away From the lens. Macros are corrected for close up shots. That makes it anyway too simple. Some lenses work fine even vice versa. ...
