  • I've had my Z5 for a couple of months now and I am generally happy with it. I understand that what I want in a camera is different than most photographers. I've been using Olympus micro four ...
  • Replied in Round pictures
    I guess because I can. I picked up a couple of Kodak cine lenses to use on micro four thirds. Then when I got a Z5, of course I had to try them....
  • Created discussion thread Lens flare and an old russian
    I enjoy using old film lenses for the unique images I can make with them (and their cost). This Industar 61 is a 52mm f/2.8 rangefinder lens.  It's a tessar lens, a Soviet copy of German design ...
  • That would be true.  I think I have been spoiled by the Olympus IBIS.
  • Yes, I had it on silent shutter.  Thank you.  I use the electronic shutter on my Olympus E-M1 as a default except for moving objects and sometimes inside as it has a maximum shutter speed of ...
  • I recently purchased a Z5 to have a full frame camera to use with adapted manual lenses. I've been learning and enjoying the new camera and use electronic shutter as a default for most situations ...
  • I have been very fortunate in all of this.  I do farm, right in the middle of the USA, and my work is mostly outside, by myself and so we don't have to go anywhere very much.  And I am free to go ...
  • Replied in 21mm lenses
    There's really no point to using M4/3 lenses on a full-frame camera that I can see.  What this adapter does is allow me to explore the lenses I have without buying a batch of new adapters.  Time ...
  • Replied in 21mm lenses
    The only place I've seen it is on ebay from China. But this is what you get using a native micro four thirds lens: The other thing I've found is while my adapters lock firmly into place, my M4/3 ...
  • Replied in 21mm lenses
    That would make some sense if you already use Panasonic. I was hoping the S5 would be the camera I wanted as I have a positive impression of Panasonic even though I come from Olympus.  As it ...
  • Replied in 21mm lenses
    Thanks everyone. Eventually I will choose how I want to approach this. 20 or 21mm would also mate nicely with my Olympus cameras, especially one of the little Voigtlanders. Anybody have experience ...
  • Created discussion thread 21mm lenses
    I've been using adapted lenses on Olympus cameras for some time, recently picked up a Nikon Z5 to expand what I can do with those lenses, especially wide.  I have been enjoying what I can do with ...
  • You can get manual lenses in a different mount and use a simple adapter to Z. Here is a search on B&H for 7Artisans Leica M lenses: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?q=7artisans%20leica There ...
  • That is encouraging.  I've been saving jpg + raw for a couple of years now just in case....
  • Yes, I need to experiment with all of this. I have been given some tools here to do that and I am appreciative. I enjoy using a camera and lenses more than I do editing the pictures so I've never ...
  • Thanks,  If that is what I think it is, it will be easier than experimenting in camera.
  • Here are a few straight from my Olympus setting.  I'll often adjust them some but I like a different starting point than default.  Since I use old lenses, I don't mind something a little gritty ...
  • Thank you.  I did not know of this.
  • Created discussion thread B&W custom setting
    I'm curious if any of you have jpeg monochrome settings that you like and would be willing to share.  I have a new Z5, also Olympus cameras that I use with old SLR and rangefinder lenses.  I'd ...
  • The M4/3 to Z adapter does work, the fit on both sides seems ok. I'm not sure how durable the lens locking mechanism will be over time. Here is a fun one with three adapters: Kodak Anastigmat 63mm ...
