  • To "fatdeeman": Unfortunately, lens sample variation is a "fact of life", regardless of brand or price - although with a "ton" of Nikkors I've checked on film (see:...

  • Not to be TOO much of a "wet blanket" here, but Samyang has a problem that, at least to this point, has not been resolved in my experience. While their lenses are often both brilliant in design and...

  • I (very briefly!) owned an a6000, but for my use with native-mount and adapted lenses, I much preferred my Panasonic bodies. As we often must learn by trying it, higher pixel count isn't ...
  • I'm with you on this one - photos taken with a particular lens tell me much more than "scores", with which I often disagree... Also, lens sample-variation is a reality I long ago discovered! More ...
  • Um, do note the the general "tone" of my post, and the "8^)" at the end... But, seriously, the Panasonic body plus (a good sample of) the 100-300mm Panasonic zoom does in fact offer a...

  • Yeah but it would still have mass...!;-)

  • Hey, I've got a 1,200mm-equivalent lens that is a bit slower at f5.6, but it includes zooming, AF, and stabilization - and it's hand-holdable (in good light), weighs only 1.25 pounds, is only about...

  • This looks excellent, but "pricey"...;-) For WA lenses on MFT, "f8.5" gives great DOF without tilting, and the cheap Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f2.8 works well (with a good sample!!!) for this on a cheap...

  • I agree with this, and while most good lenses peak in performance over most of the frame around f8 regardless of lens speed, it may take a smaller stop to achieve optimum corner performance and...

  • [I tried to write about this here earlier, but my "piece" was too long to post with DPReviews' limited character allowance...] I have a "cobbled" tilting *zoom* lens that is excellent - and it was...

  • Having shot about 165,000 frames, mostly hand-held, with several Panasonic bodies in the last three and a half years (several G5s, a G6, a G7, and a GH4), always using the electronic shutters...

  • Replied in *YAWN*
    I've been using a Panasonic 25mm f1.7 for several weeks now, and this "sharpness/CA-nut" pixel-peeper really likes this lens! It's very good to the corners from wide-open to well stopped down, ...
  • Only some are simple adapters. The rest use the space between the mounts to add more functions: a "preset" diaphragm ring for opening/closing the diaphragm of a lens with an aperture ring; an...

  • I've been using lenses adapted to Panasonic MFT bodies for a bit over three years now. Adapted lenses have included the Voigtlander 12mm f5.6, Rokinon 14mm f2.8 on a PC (shift) adapter, Nikkor 16mm...
