  • Very nice Roderick!  I bet these were worth getting a little soaked for, I know I would be happy with them.
  • Ona additional note is that the aperture mechanism on the Pany cannot keep up with the modern camera's shutter speed (fps).  So if you wanted to shoot 6 or 8 fps the Pany would slow it down to ...
  • The only thing going for the Pany is the slightly faster aperture at 300mm in particular.  Everything else falls in favour of the oly.
  • Always worth updating.  By memory two additions are ISO 100 and small AF targets along with various fixes.
  • Replied in Thankyou!
    Thanks for the informative test. Glad to see the lens performing well. The 180ft shot is certainly interesting and quite good considering ypou only had a monopod. I think this is much much better ...
  • You may want to read the whole thread.... It would seem that he ended up returning the lens as it didn't produce results that others were getting. Here is test between the two ...
  • Thankyou for that.  Very helpful. It's clear that it's not resolving what the oly 300mm could resolve however that is to be expected.  There has been a slow seeping of new images from the lens and ...
  • I have been following this recently and was getting cold feet and ready to pull my pre-order for the 100-400mm after seeing the soft images from one of the posters there.  However after seeing the ...
  • Replied in Great!
    Its great to see some good shots with this lens.  There are a few floating around that really show off the lens both here and on the mu-43.com forum though for a while i was really beginning to ...
  • Replied in Very reliable...
    I have owned the E1, E510, E3, E5, EP1, EM5 and EM1 and the only problem I have had was a part of the rubber grip separating from the body on my E3.  Thats it and all over a period of about 12 ...
  • I believe the EM1 is better in terms of AF and speed of acquiring target. The AF speed may not be miles different as they are both fast, bu the EM1 feels faster to me. I dont use CAF all that ...
  • Replied in Yep...
    I bought a cheap 25mm f1.4 version (maybe Fuji??) and enjoyed using it.  Havnt used it for a while but would love to get it out and play around with it again.  Here are a few I have taken. I ...
  • It makes sense to be honest (in regard to JPEG being sharper than RAW). Remember the EM1 has the Truepic VII processor which applies sharpening/distortion/CA removal on a "per lens" basis. ...
  • The 100-300mm is good for the money however it is an old lens that restricts the fps of the modern mirrorless camera due to its older aperture mechanism.  The AF was also a bit slow, so the new ...
  • The two lenses are quite similar in terms of image quality though there are two factors you may want to consider on top of other advice here. 1. The Pany lens is a bit faster at f5.6 at 300mm as ...
