  • Different size cameras and lenses to combine for different uses and users? Larger lenses need - for optimal grip etc - a larger body, smaller lenses feel right with small bodies. And all can be ...
  • Replied in Thank You!
    Great job! And my conclusions... Largest difference is the size and weight. Then the question is how relevant it is to have 7mm vs 8mm / 14mm vs 18mm and F2.8 vs F4. Purple blobs seem to be worse ...
  • The color differences between Oly and Pana seem to be more of a lens version vs lens version differences - not large, and always easy to calibrate in post, if needed.  And You use different lenses ...
  • Created question thread Mic for EM1 mk1?
    Need a mic for use with EM1 and/or EM5... I know with EM5 I'll need the SEMA-1 adapter too, but that's not the problem. WIll the power supply from EM1 be enough for microphones like RODE VideoMic ...
  • Yes, all the time... But, when the lenses will need some professional care (maintenance), they'll be off duty, and will be followed by some native mFT-lenses. Body: OMD E-M1 m1 (and Em5). Most ...
  • I have now a third one of that lens, and this one is really sharp, even wide open. The two earlier ones were defected, maybe decentered. Left corner way softer than the rest. So, if your lens is ...
  • Maybe the spirit showed you the way... PS. I have the Pana 7-14, PL 15 and old PL25... I have had some purple plots now and then in some situation with the 7-14, but I think the problem is much ...
  • Really beautiful! Was there a flash in the last one, the 17mm shot ? Nice fill anyway. Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with you when you need it' https://www.instagram.com/j ...
  • It seems that the crow in the F1.2 photo is the point where the focus is. With F1.2 the DOF is very thin, even at these distances, so about everything else is out from the best focus. At 5.6 the ...
  • Seems to be quite normal, nothing to worry... If it went away. Don't put the camera under your coat. Check What to do with the camera during the winter... Cheers! Jouko 'The best camera in the ...
  • Route 1: Check the test review pages. More than one. Route 2: Stop your lens 1-2 stops from full aperture. Usually the best resolution of the lens is somewhere there. With zoom focal lenghts, ...
  • It may be the best option. It also has a focus limiter, so you can choose the range for focus area, making focusing faster for portraits ( and macro). Test are very positive for the IQ, and F2.8 ...
  • Why not? Seems to be a good lens, and I find that lenght quite good for half / full body portraits and for kids. Also for location work, where it may be hard to find enough room for longer lenses. ...
  • ;-);-) PS. Great work anyhow! How did you get that close? 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:// ...
  • First - I have not had the 14-54 lens myself, but I have the 12-60 SWD, which I use regularly. You can expect  the 14-54 be IQ-wise as good with an mFT-body as it has always been - a very good ...
  • I use on for BIF's and with extreme long telephotos just in aiming the lens. The BIF ones mainly with 50-200 SWD (and sometimes TC14): faster in "framing", but not that reliable with AF. Sometimes ...
  • Theoretically - yes. The closer the better. In practise... Depends also from the quality of the filter, light etc, so only trying will tell if the IQ drop is so large that it harms the photo. But I ...
  • I understood You have the old Zuiko D. 50mm F2 macro - a very nice lens. I use that a lot, with and without the TC's - both 1.4x and 2x. Very good results (nothing to show right now anyway). And ...
  • Yes - the 75-300mm lens is much better than it's reputation is. The biggest problem is, that it is so lightweight - it is easily used as an "easy" lens. It's not. At 300mm it's a very long tele, a ...
  • Replied in Thank You!
    Thank you, Rick and AirMel. Seems that no news is good news... If there had been problems I'm sure this threat would have had more trafic. I'll make the update... Thank You! Jouko 'The best camera ...
