The lighting is quite masterful.

Impressive.

Vit Adamek: If it is anything like the popular EF 85mm 1.8 USM, with lovely creamy bokeh, I would be all over it at this price, if I have not switched to micro 4/3 completely. The micro 4/3 equivalent in Olympus 45mm 1.8 have such a lovely rendering, especially the bokeh balls are superb, round and smooth.

I would love an 85 1.8 AF lens for M43 at $200!

LakeSuperior1: I will be grabbing one of these for sure!

For me, 640g is heavy, unfortunately.

"Yep. That’s an 18-36mm f8-f11 equivalent lens"

But still no explanation as towhy f/8 and f/4 are the same!
Really, the end.

@MikeRan. If you look at my Gallery, you'll see that I know how to take photos

I don't need to do any reading.

I do not understand these arguments, which is why I suggested an alternative method for expressing equivalence. To claim that f/8 and f/4 are the same is patently silly.
The end.

Isn't it about time the equivalent twaddle was dumped in favour of angle of view?

@ MikeRan. Nonsense. F/4 is F/4. At F/8 the picture would be under-exposed 2 stops if ISO and shutter speed are maintained.

On photo Der Schwung in the Dancing challenge (11 comments in total)

As an ex-ballroom dancer, this is a well deserved win. In my past, when photographing the dancers, the rule was to always show their feet, but this is such a good viewpoint, it doesn't matter.

I notice in the montage of cameras they include a PEN F, so they appear not to have forgotten it. Perhaps because they know they are bringing out a mark 2, eventually.
