  • Hmm... If You move the camera after the focusing (as I do quite often), there is the risk that the distances between the sensor and subjects changes. Especially if You are doing close ups. With ...
  • Posible reasons... worst: the lens has hot a hit or two, and lens groups have hot loose or moved. Needs some maintenance... best: You have photographed subjects with different distances... Even the ...
  • I have the 7.5 and love it... In fact, this is my Third copy. The first two ones had decentered lenses, and soft corners. This Third one... Very good. But some problems anyway: with Em1 the camera ...
  • Great stuff! Mine at http://instagram.com/jouko.k.lehto/ 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.artistw ...
  • Great place! TaKe the 7.5 and maybe also 9-18 or wider. There are some views where the wides are the best to use. If You have a possibility to go out to the sea, also a longer lens could have a ...
  • So there has to be some kind of civilization. It will be very interesting to see what kind of portraits you'll do with that lens. Cheers! Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have ...
  • Replied in Interesting...
    This system grows and matures... Compact for a 500mm f4 lens, as it should be. A long distance lens for nature photographers, carryable for more distant directions than most of the competitors. ...
  • Replied in Some thoughts...
    Having the 75-300 OLy (mk1) I can say, that it is optically very good. Not excellent, but very good. Compared to the Oly 50-200 SWD (I have it too) I can say this... 1. 50-200 is better alone: ...
  • Replied in What I had...
    was 2 bodies with 9-18, 12-60 and 40-150 and the 25mm lens. The other body stayed mostly at hotel (for backup) and most used lenses were 9-18 and 12-60. 25mm for nighshots and interior, 40-150 ...
  • Hello! Nikon won't work on TTL-mode or set the camera for flash shutter speeds. If the flash has a sensor for light, you can use it on "auto"-mode. Anyway, I'm not sure about the electric ...
  • Panasonic, Sony... Olympus has some patents for new designs, who ever the manufacture would be. Fuji has some cooperation with Panasonic for organic sensors. And who makes the BlackMagic sensors, ...
  • I have found, that focus peaking is about useless with wides, especially with fisheye. Magnified view works fine. Focus peaking works quite well with manual teles, even with a 1000mm lens - but ...
  • Indeed the mtf-curve is dependent on (at least) two factors: the lens quality and the camera. So the test shows the results got with the camera used that time. On the comment side, the testers ...
  • 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 ...
