Hi, I've been having this chat in the M43 forum, and the conversation became specific enough that I thought I would ask if any of you have tried the following lens on a M43 configuration. I would like your opinions but please only if you have experience with these 2 specific lens : - Laowa 7.5mm for M43 (15mm equivalent) - Laowa 15mm Wide angle macro (30mm equivalent) I love the 15mm because of its capability to focus at 1:1 magnification, allowing for a subject very close to the lens to...
Hi, Could someone please help confirming my calculation ? Is the following correct ? >>> On a GH-4 M43 camera, the obtained angle of view on the sensor will be smaller with this Laowa 15mm ( https://www.venuslens.net/product/laowa-15mm-f/ ) than on this Lumix 14-45mm ( https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/657970-REG/Panasonic_H_FS014045_Lumix_G_Vario_14.html ) ? That is surprising to me as the Laowa is a wide angle lens, and the Lumix isn't, but if I understand correctly, because of the...
My favorite landscape lens is the 21 Ltd, both for size and contrast. However, my last few vacations have gotten me thinking that I might want to add an ultra-wide zoom to complement it, as I often find myself needing to resort to stitching multiple shots together in order to fit an entire scene. There are worse things in the world, but it is time-consuming. So I’m looking at options, which has brought up two big issues for me. First, I’d want the IQ to be on par with the 21 Ltd, or at least...
Hi, I'm a new user, after a few years reading the forum I have newbie question to ask, currently looking for a macro lenses, I saw lots of threads about macro lens but I still cannot decide, therefore I'm looking for a feedback and explanation about macro. First of all, I'm a hobbyist, and A7 is my first dslr camera, I know it's a big jump, I learn lot of stuffs while using it. I have 3 lenses 55/1.8 my favorite, 28-70mm jack of all trades, 12mm fisheye for some fun. Now I'm interested in...
I have a couple of Pentax Limited primes: the DA 15mm and the DA 35mm Macro, and would like to use them on my GH4, but as they do not have an aperture ring, I would loose aperture control if using a cheap m4/3 to K adaptor. Are there any 'automatic' adaptors available? - i.e. that would allow in-camera control of the Pentax lens aperture (and maybe also autofocus - though that not essential). Otherwise are there any basic 'non-auto' adaptors that you would recommend for quality? I'd be using...
I'm upgrading cameras every 5 years or so, my current is a K-5 - which has served me very well indeed. I'm not someone who wishes to acquire every latest slight step-up in technology: the K-5 is a great camera which I still use as a professional tool, yet 2x step up in resolution would help. So the K-1. I'm going to order one soon ...but lenses that do the 36MP justice? Pentax lenses I currently use: 15mm Limited: very very very amazing centre resolution, though poor corners; this lens I...

My not entirely reliable brain is telling me that I NEED to buy an Olympus 17mm F1.8 lens as my PanaLeica 15mm F1.7 isn't "a true 35mm FF equivalent lens". While I understand that this is technically correct, as a G7 user capturing OOC JPGs, am I: 1. Not going to see enough difference between the 2 FLs considering both lenses are excellent? 2. Going to be very upset that I don't get a snazzy lens hood free with the Olympus lens? 3. Still manage to take very average photographs at both FLs? 4....

Hello all, I'm currently evaluating two copies of a Tamron 15-30mm, one purchased and another rented for comparison. For my purposes (storm photography), I'm mostly interested in infinity performance at 15mm. Multiple online reviews stated that this lens has a fairly flat field and is sharp edge to edge, but this is not what I'm experiencing. To test, I mounted the camera on a tripod, VC off, remote release, EFCS, etc. I used Live View autofocus to acquire focus on a distant white tower in...
