Years ago, in my film days, I would smear a tiny amount of Vaseline on the filter in a circular motion, leaving a small central clear aperture. Or place a stocking in front of the lens; if shooting in colour, fine muslin. They could also be placed under the enlarging lens, for a similar effect.Peter Del
Peter Del: I posted this request yesterday, but I must have forgotten to click on the 'Submit' button.Could a reviewer please take a few high res photos of trees, with the camera on a tripod, as I, and many others, would really like to see how the leaves looks on, say, an A3 print!.Thanks
"Robin Wong posted several "product shot" like images of the food. In one of the shots, the salad leave had moved during HR shot too."I could not see any movement in his salad.
"There was an air movement in the studio, what caused some of the feathers to move during the HR shot."Thank you for correcting me; the reviewer did not mention a breeze.This might explain why the Nikon D810 shot looks slightly better.
Thanks, but no, that is not what I meant. The feathers are in a studio and not subject to even the slightest breeze, whereas leaves on a tree would be.

I'm disappointed, the reviewer went all the way to Bermuda, with a tripod, for three days, to test the E-M5 mk.2, and did not give a thorough workout to its most talked about feature, namely - high res!
In my view, the camera should have been mounted on the tripod, pointed at some trees, to see how bad it is!!
Perhaps you'll do this when you return to Seattle!!!
CS6 costs £650, if one keeps it for ten years it costs £650. If one rents it at £9/month for ten years that's £1080. I would sooner have the £430 in my pocket rather than theirs!However, I'm still using Elements 3!!!
al_in_philly: I've been using (and loving) the E-M5 since it came out. I almost bought the E-M1 but I couldn't justify paying more than $1000 for the evolutionary advances which that model provided over the original E-M5. I am feeling like that once again: I'm impressed with what I'm reading about the E-M5II, but are those changes worth another $1100 (and even more with the handgrip!)? I'm left waiting once again, hoping that the next E-M1 will have enough real-world advantages over the original E-M5 to warrant the $1300-1500 which that camera will run. That said, I'm keeping my fingers crossed--do you hear me Olympus?
Al,I'm in exactly the same position as yourself with the E-M5 and the Mk.2. The only changes I can see that would be beneficial to me is the articulated screen and the re-siting of the remote cable socket. At £900 that's a lot of pounds for the modest changes.
I take pictures of trees with my E-M5 mounted on a tripod. So all this talk of highres this and that does not interest me. However, I would very much appreciate it if Mr. Butler would take the Mk2, (not when there is a gale blowing), somewhere around Seattle where there are trees which are not distant (running water as well) and comment as to the results in an uncropped A3 print. I would really like to know how bad the results are! (Using a tripod, of course).Thanks.
miemo: Are the MySet presets assignable to PASM-dial modes like they are on E-M1? (One of the biggest gripes I have with E-M5 is the overly difficult and confusing way of changing between MySets...)
I've never really understood photographs problem with changing MySets - it takes me a matter of seconds.However, I do think that Olympus missed a great opportunity; a lockable five position lever on the front of the camera for the four MySets and a factory reset would be a tremendous selling point!
Sirandar: Comparing the standard res Mark II images to the original OMD E5, they just don't look as sharp or crisp with the II. Am I missing something? Look at the green feathers...
Also, the addition of a articulating display is very welcome, but can you turn the display to face inwards when not using it? Since even with a screen protector the display tends to rub against stuff and take damage, turning it in would make shooting a much more carefree experience.
My old Pana FZ30 had this feature and I took advantage of it a lot as I tend to use the viewfinder.
The screen can be turned inwards.
johnsmith404: Why did you think a 200$ lens would resolve 64mp? And on top of that at f5.6 where diffraction is already visible at 16mp on m43?
I bet you'd get better results using something like the Nocticron at f2 or f2.8.
As it is, the RAW comparison with the D810 shows that the high-res mode has just recorded high-res blur with very little added detail. If you resize the RAWs to print mode, even the a6000 shows more detail.
Samuel Spencer"and are saving any further hi-res testing for the review,"I am looking forward to seeing your images, but could you also test the differences (if any) with a consumer lens, such as the 14-150!!!!! Please.
Peter Del: I was really interested in the articulated screen, but unfortunately it is not shown in this preview and the specifications suggest that it is no longer a touch screen - is this latter point true?I am surprised that logs in the high rez image of the driftwood (with the lady) shows hardly any improvement of detail over the regular image - unless I'm missing something.
It seems that the images are not the same size, so I will have to wait 'till someone posts comparable images.

A great selection of photographs. Thanks for choosing my picture of a lily, which was a Christmas present. It was taken with an E-M5 and 14-150 using two Elinchrom RX One's.
Fabulous image.Peter Del
Many good pictures, but I am surprised that dpr have not made a comment on multiple entries.If there are 1200 entries and you post 1 picture, you stand a 1 in 1200 chance of it being selected, but if you post 25 pictures your chances have unfairly increased to 1 in 48!!!!!!!
Peter Del: I don't get it, the item clearly states 'my-best-shot' not 'shots', so why are contributors posting more than one image? dpr should simply not consider those from Members who have posted more than once!
ecube, I did something similar; I tagged the last picture I took.
Jim Salvas: One guy just uploaded 24 photos with this tag. That's pretty needy, fella.
Greedy not needy!
