  • My theory on orange filters on digital is that digital sensors are most sensitive to cyan and if you have a good color chart you might notice this even with "monochrome" on color sensors. My tests ...
  • I am sure that my R version doesn't fringe from Cibachrome prints made from  slides and 4/3rds digital, but I'm not sure that I have ever seen any from the M lens. It will give me something to do ...
  • I have both the M and R mount versions, which might tell you that I like this focal length. I have used them for film many years and with the M8 and MTF bodies in digital.. I remember Jono Slack ...

    Nice examples, thanks. My widest Leica lens is a 28mm/f2.8 Elmarit Asph. and it does fine because 4/3rds' use of the central frame. It is almost too sharp, but has good micro contrast and prints ...
  • I find that the older Leica lens that I have (6) are very nice in keeping their rendering signatures. The first thing that ruins that signature is even the slightest post processing.
  • One of the "olden" theories in street photography was to shoot with both eyes open, so that you could see what is coming into the frame. For MFT this means matching the VF magnification to the ...
  • I have a couple of prime lenses with that kind of bokeh. The newest is a Voigtlander Nokton M-Leica 50mm F/1.1 but while bright specular backgrounds can really bloom and detract, scenes with low ...
  • The deer hang around because I have a cluster of Texas Persimmon Trees in the front yard. His mate was on the side of the house with the Honeysuckle bush. My daughter got her with her phone's cam.
  • Our deer experiences are similar. Your fawn shots are nice but,yes, the out of focus zones are choppy. The buck did stop to acknowledge my new camera....

  • Thanks, Jan
  • For the 25mm spot I have the PL 25/1.4. As far as my favorite focal length, I tried to match the focal length of my mental visual attention....so, when I pay visual attention to something and ...
  • My OM-4 was stolen. My E-5 is always at the ready when I want an optical viewfinder and some good telecentric zooms. If the E-1 had followed the present naming scheme it would have been the E-1 ...
  • Its that or Arizona..........and we've got kin there too......
  • Replied in A good story
    Thanks Jim, One fun comparative between the "ONEs" is that the new one has twice the linear resolution than the E-1. This is good for a habitual printer like me. I had looked forward to the E-M5 ...
  • Created discussion thread Seventeen years and another one
    On 10-10-2003 I got in my truck and drove half way to down town to a camera store that said they just got in the Oly E-1.  It came so nice to hand that I took it home. It is still works but now ...
