  • I'd love a f4/40-150 with less than 500g but the IQ of the fabulous 2,8 version - or, make it a 4/30-150 lens. Also included shoud be the close minimal focus distance of the PRO lenses. Perhaps the ...
  • Lovely. Thanks a lot. Yes, these pictures give quite a different impression from what I saw in late summer - beautiful as dry grass is. Peter
  • Did you also take photos of the whole meadows and the environment of these flowers? I visited the sierras several times in August and September, but always wondered what they look like in spring. Peter
  • I get that when I develop raw files in DxO with prime NR. Some people even prefer the 12 MP Panasonic output for low ISO skin tones (GF1, G1, G2) Don't think this is possible. If F1,7 is large ...
  • Thinking about FF myself, but probably will stay with MFT for weight reasons. But then, let's see what the Nikon FF mirrorless will be. :-D Nice pictures of your girls, but way oversaturated for my ...
  • Replied in But-ting my but
    I just handled a friend's Pentax K1 with Tamron 2,8/24-70(?) and, wow, what a relief to get back the feather-weight EM5.2 plus 2,8/40-150. But seriously, I won't carry this combo when hiking or ...
  • Replied in Yes, but
    I agree about IQ and built quality, close focus is is a great plus, too. I made Sugru grip for the EM5.2 for easier handling. Size and weight is too much for me for everyday use, but this won't ...
  • Replied in EM5.2
    I did it just that way for the EM5.2, which badly needs a better grip for the 2,8 PRO  zooms (probably for the 12-100 too). Peter
  • I use it with the GX7 - the GR is easily better for landscapes than the GX7 plus 1,7/20. Another great advantage is, that there is no need to change lenses: the GR for general landscape and even ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Not even the grey/red contrast nor the title help. BTW, if someone should be disappointed, because he doesn't find better candid portraits in my gallery: I don't publish them on the net, although I ...
  • These lenses are arguably the 2 of the 3 worst lenses of the M43 line up. Better get one good lens like the Panasonic 1,7/20 or PL 1,4/25 or even one of the non PZ standard 14-42 mm zooms. Peter
  • Replied in Focus!
    All pictures are completely blurred, there is nothing sharp. But the blurr increases the more you go to background. This, in my opinion, rules out handshake, because then the blurr should be the ...
  • (Not a nice way to begin a post!) No, 1/125 should be good enough for much sharper photos - I suspect, the pctores are out of focus. Perhaps the limiter was set to 20-40cm? Theoretically right, but ...
  • Olympus need the sensors produced by Sony or Panasonic. Without approval from one of these "competitors", there is no way Olympus can produce a camera. And who would believe, Sony would produce a ...
  • Replied in I tried it.
    I wanted a faster wide lens that is better than the 14-45, which is not good enough for me. So I hoped for IQ similar to the Panasonic 1,7/20. The sample I got was about as good as the 14-45, ...
  • This is a universal lens: not too wide, fast aperture, very sharp and nice micro-contrast, even does some close focus. Price should be about as much as the 1,8/45. Good for landscapes, cities, ...
  • Great! Who is your make-up artist? Peter
  • I don't compare - I just don't want to carry it (like I don't carry the s.h.g. Pro 40-150 lens). Ok, when the car carries the weight, I wouldn't have a problem taking the 12-40 and 40-150 pro ...
  • Everyone for himself, of course, but for me the behemoth 12-100 doesn't come under the heading "less". If you were arguing, that with, say, the PL15, or even this one with the O 60 Macro, the M43 ...
  • Here is one: http://mirrorlesscomparison.com/micro-four-thirds-lenses/12-40mm-f2-8-pro-vs-12-100mm-f4-pro/ However, after their comparison of the Lumix 12-60 and the PL 12-60, which contradicts ...
