Re: OM-D ascends Mt Wood

Terrific Wally, the Alpenglow is my favorite, you nailed it. Just returned from Moab and the Grand Canyon, very happy again with the results.

These are a fine set Wally...

Cheers,

Bill

Re: OM-D ascends Mt Wood

Very nice series and story line. Well done, I say from the comfort of my chair in a warm house although I am feeling a sudden urge to bump the thermostat upward!

f22... yeah, I ran into this a few weeks ago shooting a sunset. Totally sapped the resolution, and when I was digging for large prints today (24x36-ish), I had to (sadly) pass on the captures. I don't know why this is with m43, maybe it is my lens selection, but I have to go as deep (or deeper) than FF to get nice sunstars across the board (7-14, 8, 14-45, ect).

Nice set, and the FE was appropriate considering the subject. I haven't used mine much this winter (mostly stick to the rectilinear UWA), but it reminds me I better to take it out before all this melts!

I noticed the same thing.  Even F18 doesn't give much of a sunstar.  It's unfortunate, but I feel like I still get enough sharpness to get a decent print (not huge mind you) out of it if I wanted to, but I've never actually tried one yet.

It might be telling to mention that the same scene three-shot-stitched at f22 with the 7-14 still gave a file size smaller than the (basically the same FOV) 1-shot done with the 8mm at f5.6... even though it came in at more than 2x the raw pixel count!

We Got THis and Sunny Slope are my favourites. But my impression of the entire set and adventure is simply WOW!! Luca
