Any cheap EF lens worth shooting on Z mount?

Cool, but i'll stick with my 14-30 f4s. Better range and i don't need f2.8.

Surprisingly "cheap" for medium format.

Pete_W: OM-1 colours seem quite flat compared with the colours from the GH6 and X-H2 and X-H2S cameras used in recent reviews.

And Chris said he uses OM LOG when recording video, which means he grades videos to his own personal tastes. So Chris likes it "flat". :)

This is not straight-out-of-camera video.

Surprised to see Chris upgraded his EM1 mark III, And he only has one single lens.

Huh? magnification isn't sensor dependent in terms of macro A 2mm dot is 2mm at 1:1 on any sensor at max magnification, since 1mm is 1mm is 1mm. Eg https://www.allanwallsphotography.com/blog/2021/6/2/sensor-size-amp-magnification

I think OM is saying this is a 4x macro lens. Period. Right?

If you've played with both m43 and FF gear, with lenses that have on paper the same magnification, the practical results always have the m43 lenses with much greater magnification.

Those two lenses are a classic example (i own both; they're great):

So while some may be confused by OMDS and their use of 2x and 4x in 35mm, I completely understand what they mean.

instantes: Nice and natural colours

Yeah, the lens is far from perfect, lots of small flaws, but overall IQ is quite pleasing to the eye.

Photos come out even better when you work with the RAWs.

I'd choose the X-H2s over the GH6... for stills.

Modgil P: Which filters on lens and settings on camera could have further improved this image?

I would have used a vivid JPEG color profile with boosted saturation and contrast. And maybe underexposed the shot by 2/3 stop (can all be done in post).

Is it just me but all the 40-150 photos kind of suck in this gallery? The 90mm and the 16-80 photos are much better.

It's nice of them to create novel zoom lenses. But range is too limited.
