Namur's current gear

Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom
Olympus E-30
Olympus E-5
pros: excellent IQ for landscapes; fast enough for indoor portraits cons: viewfinder much too small difficult focusing
great size and IQ but somewhat limited DR; viewfinder a little small partic. compared to E-5, better w/eyecup adapter. No weather-proofing
better viewfinder and improved DR over e-30 weatherproofing heavier than e-30
Olympus E-520
Olympus Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter EC-14
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm 1:2.8-4.0 SWD
no noticeable degradation of IQ; v. useful range extender for several FL lenses water resistant
excellent IQ + surprisingly good low-light performance. Cons: noticeable distortion at wide end limits utility. overall: exceedingly versatile lens
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 18-180mm 1:3.5-6.3
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm 1:2.8-3.5 SWD
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 50mm 1:2.0 Macro
excellent IQ - cons: some minor distortion @ 50mm; heavy works well with EC 1.4 but this is heavy + and needs tripod or bipod
superb IQ + detail; very sharp
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm 1:4.0-5.6
Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm 1:4.0-5.6
Panasonic Leica D Summilux Asph 25mm F1.4
very good IQ particularly when stopped down & fast shutter speed; can be soft at full reach but excellent for close-ups
Oly 11-22 more useful zoom range (bcse faster, longer and less distortion at 9 mm)
v.good low-light performance + superb colour rendition; sharp and fast; good for closeups; great with EC 1.4 for 35mm unfortunately not weatherproof
Samyang 85mm F1.4 Aspherical IF
Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG Macro
Epson Stylus Photo R1900
learning to use but very interesting for street photography
superb IQ + detail; very sharp & fast; useful FL - useful w/ EC 1.4
Other gear:
  • Olympus OM 135mm F/3.5 using w/ E-30 for manual focus training - better w / larger eye-piece
  • Olympus Zuiko Digital 40-150mm 1:3.5-4.5 Fine IQ and useful focal length zoom - lightweight (relatively) medium tele-zoom excellent forfor travel
