  • That was my assumption. I have used exposure bracketing with my E-M1.2 with multiple lenses including, if I remember correctly, both a Panasonic 100-300 and a Tamron 150-600 (there is a story ...
  • Thank you for taking the time to respond. Based on the responses in this thread I have pretty much decided that if I am going to buy something in the range of the 12-50 I would be much better off ...
  • I switched from Canon FF to the M4/3 because I am just tired of carrying all of that weight around. My 5D3 and the "kit" lens I bought it with (Canon 24-105) together weigh 4 pounds and that ...
  • Bracketing is important to me as I frequently take exposure bracketed shots, stacking is less important but still something I would want to be able to do. But I assume you mean that the camera ...
  • Yes. I have seen comments to that effect, but Olympus has no other birding lens except the 300mm and that does not seem to me to be a viable choice as I want the flexibility of a zoom rather than ...
  • I just sat down and looked at my lens choices to cover the ranges I want. I ended up with 2 basic choices. 1) 12-40mm f/2.8, 40-150 f/2.8 Pro, 75-300  f/4.8-6.7  or 2) 12-100mm Pro, 40-150 ...
  • I have been trying to decide between the 12-100 and the 14-150 as a general walk-around tourist kind of lens and am not sure if I want the extra wide angle or the extra length. I do not need both. ...
  • Created question thread Olympus lens question
    I was in the local camera store today getting an estimate for my Canon gear in exchange for some Olympus lenses. The shop is largely Canon and Nikon oriented but they did have a large, but not ...
  • Testing was done using the two lenses I had to compare - the Panasonic 100-300 and the Olympus 40-150. Both were tested against the same target, both tests used the same shutter speed and ...
  • I used the tool I had on hand. When the Olympus 75-300 arrives I will be happy to repeat this test, but I reported what I saw.
  • This entire situation came about because I was using S-AF and low speed burst when I was doing some birding. Although the birds were not moving very much, many of the images were OOF and one of ...
  • I am glad for you, and bought the Panasonic lens not expecting any issues. But when a set of burst photos show a difference of 6.6 inches between shots of a stationary object I can not help but ...
  • I guess I do not understand why you think that testing for focus distance using C-AF and low speed burst is something I should not be doing. It seems to me to be something worth doing When I found ...
  • 0. Some people were posting that setting tracking to +1 to +2 would insure a change in the focus distance so I made sure it was set to 0.
  • My point is that it happened with the Panasonic lens, but not with the Olympus lens. Repeated tests using the same stationary object showed changes with the Panasonic 100-300 but no changes with ...
  • Created discussion thread Using Panasonic lens on Olympus camera
    This post is related to an earlier thread concerning my use of a Panasonic lens on my E-M1.2. Perhaps it should be posted there but it seems important enough to warrant a new thread. To reiterate, ...
  • After reading through the referenced thread I decided to take all of the comments into account and re-try my photo shooting. I could not go back to the same bird blind but there were some ...
  • Replied in Compatibility
    Thank you for the suggestion. I checked the Metabones webpage and they have not tested the Tamron 150-600 at all, but have a note for it saying that auto-focus may not work properly unless newer ...
  • I switched from Canon because I was getting tired of carrying all of that weight around. My Canon 5D3 and the main lens, Canon's 24-105, together weigh 4 pounds while my E-M1 Mk II and the 14-42 ...
  • I posted an issue in another thread about some of my Panasonic 100-300mm lens shots with my E-M1.2 being a bit soft and one of the responders pointed me to this thread. I read through the thread ...
