  • I've had the Oly 40-150 (cheap version), 40-150 f2.8 and FT 50-200 SWD... All gave (or give) very good results. If you are on a budget, or ean to go very light the plastic 40-150 is a very good option.
  • Yes and no, depends on the photo. On your examples, a smaller aperture could have brought the far away trees on top of the hill to better focus. A must? No. There are times, when you want about ...
  • Just needs the update... Better to try to update all - camera, tc and lens. I had the same problem with Em1mk2, TC20 and 40-150F2.8. I think the camera update was the main thing taht solved the ...
  • Replied in The zooms...
    Pana and Oly 7-14 PanaLeica 8-18 Oly 9-18 ? The most compact is the Oly 9-18, and largest Oly 7-14 f2.8 There are options... Cheers! Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with you ...
  • The HHHR file is a combo file from several single shots. And as one, it can also suffer from movements (you or the view). And those movements can cause blur etc. The ORI file is the same as the ...
  • The Fisheye-effect depends on the lens. There are plenty of fisheyes available for mFT, both manual focus and autofocus versions. Check for example Olympus 8mm F1.8, Panasonic 8mm F3.5 or samyang ...
  • Replied in +1
    I'd blame the sun  and the weather for most. The long distance etc just digs the effect out very strongly. It can also disturb the AF - all those heat waves circulating between you and the bird (or ...
  • Been there... My first camera was Konica ART3... Built like a hammer, and felt like one too. Had some nice lenses with it, but the Konica camera division and some other parts were bought by ...
  • All the lenses you have now will work on an Oly EM1mk2 or 3 body about as well as they do now. With the PDAF the focusing may be a bit faster, but I'm not sure - or is the difference anything to ...
  • The old (FT-versions) EC14 and EC20 could be used on any fourthirds lens - the design of the converters was made so, and the telecentric design of the lenses kept the IQ high - of course depending ...
  • Of course it can also be so, that you have bought an older FourThirds camera and new micro FourThirds lenses... The FT-Oly cameras were named like E-3, E-5, E420 and so on. You can't use m.Zuiko ...
  • For emergency use... Can squeeze  some extra details and recover highlights, to some point. And, handled with care, make some good results. And sorry, it's been several years since I used this ...
  • On EM1mk2 there is a delay setting under the high res mode settings. I have set it to 4 sec. Maybe there is the same in PenF? Cheers! Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with ...
  • Replied in Cheap Fisheye
    Then edges seem to be on the soft side, but center is reasonable sharp, at least for a $100 lens. The blur on edges can also be caused by IS - have you set the stabilization for 7.5-8mm lens? It ...
  • Replied in But most likely
    the read-out speed from 43-sensor is faster than from a FF-sensor. Is it fast enough for 8K - who knows, yet. But we have seen it coming from Sharp - but not on the market yet. The same sensor on ...
  • Replied in Someday...
    That would give some interesting options too... I suppose that could bring us the E-M1R, with 1. Base resolution that 42MB 2. High resolution 168 MB ? 3. Low light pixel binning version 10,5 MB 4. ...
  • Replied in Cheap Fisheye
    I think you should test that lens outside, focused at infinity. Even if the lens is a fisheye and the DOF is large, these shots show nothing about sharpness or resolution at infinity. FE-lenses are ...
  • I use mine with 300mm+ focal lengths to find the bird to viewfinder, then focus and frame... And for BIFs with 5x5 or larger focus areas. Mainly on tripod use - I have the older 300mm f2.8, which ...
  • It seems, that both lenses are suberb - so it comes to the use and need. With Oly 300mmF4 you'll get also the 420mm F5.6 and 600mm F8 - > more reach compared to 40-150mm F2.8, and a faster 300mm ...
  • For OP, thank you for the Af-settings. Cheers! Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with you when you need it' https://www.instagram.com/jouko.k.lehto/ http://lehtokukka.smugmug.com/
