  • Some corrections or clarifications for some posts above... FT = Four Thirds, the older series, Zuiko D, Lumix, Sigma... mFT= Micro Four Thirds, m.Zuiko etc All FT-lenses used with an adaptor on ...
  • Or a 500 - 600mm tele f5.6 or f4. Or Sigma /Tamron to adapt those new long zoms to this mFT-world too (150-600mm). Ps. Canon  sells the 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS USM here in Finland for 1700e - I ...
  • Replied in In general...
    I should have added the words " in general" or "usually" or something else for the point the point that a 17mm lens would be better for landscapes, 25 for people. It's all about desired framing, ...
  • Replied in 17 vs 25...
    As you pointed out, you may prefer the 17mm option more than 25. But shortly, 17mm will be more natural with landscapes, 25mm with people. Both have about the same aperture for low light shooting ...
  • Great examples above (and post too)... For the needed focal lenghts your lenses would do fine. It all depends on needed/ available space and working distance, available/makeable background and ...
  • the TTL metering won't work with FT or MFT-series camera bodies. This newer flash-system needs a preflash for metering, but you can also have shorter shutter speeds sync with some flashes. The ...
  • Yes, quite a lot. But not for every shot - depends on the subject and framing. Lots of well thought examples in former answers. I shoot only RAW, so framing in PP. This way is also more forgiving ...
  • Replied in They work
    Even the remote control works (the small flip-on flash as a trigger). And the older non-RC-versions work too. I have the FL50R, just used it in FP-mode for fill-in light in some birdshots - no ...
  • but it was originally made by Minolta  for Minolta AF-cameras. I think there is now a Sony-branded one. Tokina has made reflex lenses (or branded ones) for decades - most of them T-mount ones. ...
  • The vaselin trick descriped in the first reply may be the closest to what you are looking for. Notice, that in the example there was a clear zone in the middle of the frame. You can place it ...
  • Replied in 4 mFT, but...
    Combining the FT and mFT- mounts quite a few... from 7.5mm FE to 300 (400mm) about without holes. All have their strenghts, so at the moment I'm not trying to sell any away - not even one of 50mm ...
  • As You have already read, the mFT-system will do the job for you fine. Also the other systems will do - I suppose the Nikon would be the worst to focus those older lenses. The focus aids Oly and ...
  • Replied in Third Copy...
    I have now the Third copy of this lens with me, and this one seems to be excellent. The two ones before had some decentering problems - bought a couple years ago, when the lens was new and "hot", ...
  • Replied in Long tele...
    The 100-300mm seems to be a fine lens, but it is really not an allrounder. Eqv. 600mm (FF) at long end it should be called super telephoto lens, and as one threated like one. Handheld shots with as ...
  • I like this one more...I love the graphical output. Maybe some toning to add? Either to the background or to the tree / woodpecker. Just a suggestion. Merry Christmas! Jouko 'The best camera in the ...
  • While the OM-lenses were very good with the film, the output on the digital camera varies from the lens and sensor-combination. As a thumb rule, there is about no thumb rule... Some are very good, ...
  • Thank you for the info. I did some research, and it seems that this "RJ" does not make an OM-mFT focal reduser, at least for now. Metabones seems to be the only one, Mitakon maybe coming later. I ...
  • The problem with the hood can be solved with CAREFUL shaving of the hood. Strangely the vignets are not in the center of the image. Was the lens locked well into the adapter, or the adapter into ...
  • I don't have that lens, but use the Em1... ANd no, as far as I have found, the focus peaking and magnifying can't be set behind one button. But they can be used together, and it is useful if the ...
  • I have the EPM1 and EP3 - both small enough for my 11 year old daughter. She has used the EP3 from age 8. Similar sized Panasonics may do as well. Just put the camera first to P or iAuto-mode and ...
