  • 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 ...
  • Created discussion thread EM1 mark1 4.3 Update ok?
    Does the new update work as it should? Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with you when you need it' http://lehtokukka.smugmug.com/ http://jouko-lehto.artistwebsites.com/ https ...
  • My suggestion: 9-18 + Panorama stitching... My copy of Oly 14-42 mkII R was much better optically than the 12-50 copy I had - so not that much there. 9-18 range is very good for landscapes and ...
  • So this is not a lens for you... Where is the problem? Jouko 'The best camera in the world is the one you have with you when you need it' http://lehtokukka.smugmug.com/ http://jouko-lehto.artistweb ...
  • C1 does a very good job with ORF-files, and I have found it much faster than Lightroom - may be me, but the workflow suits me better. Also very good color by default, and very flexible for ...
  • Replied in No revolutions
    Just evolution... Larger steps onwards maybe when the organic sensors or some  other new technology will be available. Year? Who knows - and if somebody does, he or she will still be very quiet ...
  • Replied in Different beast
    I have both, and both have their use... Defishing crop depends on the amount of defishing, and also how it is done, but usually anyway the FE has wider FOW than Pana also when defished.. Cheers! Jouko
  • The Oly FT 50-200 SWD is very good and reasonable priced now, at least as used ones... But the Oly 75-300 is not bad either - about the same IQ as the 50-200 + TC14. I have both, so I really have ...
