Klarno's current gear
Paired with Metabones speedbooster-- full frame on the cheap.
Very smooth, well-damped zoom ring! Best I've seen in a lens this price.
Was using the FT mount version of this lens, right up until I got a Markins Q10 head for my tripod. Then I found out that lens was...wobbly. So I got this one. No complaints about IQ, I use this lens for landscape all the time. Small and lightweight, can forget about it in the bottom of the bag right until you need it.
Great lens with low distortion and a very useful FL range. Starting to show its age as an optical design, though.
Klarno's previous gear
My first MFT camera, bought specifically as the best available digital back that could autofocus Four Thirds mount lenses. Never really needed the video features. Sold after realizing that I could buy the E-PM2, sell the GH2 and come out ahead.
- Sigma 18-50 F2.8 EX DC Macro Loved this lens. Got some of my best photos with it. Couldn't AF worth a darn on MFT cameras (though it might do fine on the E-M1) and it had some flare issues. Traded in for 14-54.
