    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Bart: Thanks, my choice, too.

    I like the 12mm a lot! So far, it's my favorite lens, and, it looks very good on the silver/black OMD. The 45mm's great too. The 75mm's on order. They're solid, well-built, compact, and lovely to look at and touch. Oh...and, IQ's very good.

    Cheers, Matt

    Being a sucker for chrome and just by looking at the 12/2.0, 45/1.8 and 75/1.8, I already can feel my knees start wobbling and I sense an imminent GAS-attack ...

    I've already got the 45 (cheaper and plastic, but still very good). The 12 and 75 are beckoning from the sidelines!
    You may as well give in Bart . .. incidentally, how are you liking the camera?

    Dear-o-dear, that 12/2.0 is very very tempting indeed ...

    As for the E-M5: it's sooo much better with the grip over my grip-less G3.
    The handling is IMO just fantastic.
    Still in the process of discovering "all" its features, though.
    Started reading the manual the other day, but soon felt asleep :sleep006:, so I'm just happily firing away ...
    And on a side note: it's a darn pretty little camera !

    Kind regards.

    Funny - it's much prettier than it looks in the advertising, I don't know why, maybe a bit of dirt makes it look more real?

    You're one step ahead of me though . . . you've started reading the manual!
    I am glad you like it though - I think it's fab.

    I'm curious about the lenses you took on this trip? Ashwin Rao, Ed Tan, Andy Holloway, and myself are leaving Seattle at 4:30 am on Monday for a whirlwind two days in the Palouse. I'm trying to pare my M9/OMD kit down. Last time, I had the M9 and M8. 50% of the shots were with a 90mm and 20% with a 75mm.

    Cheers, Matt

    Hi Matt,
    Have a great trip. Beautiful area.

    My kit -
    Fuji x-pro1 plus 18, 35, 60 and I've only used 35, 60 mainly 35
    Oly OMD plus 7-14, 12-50, 100-300, 25, 45 (f1.8)

    For the OMD 25 and 45 were just brought as spares. Since I wasn't bringing a second body for either system, I wanted a bit of redundancy. Haven't used either.

    OMD kit - used often: 12-50 and 100-300 used sparingly: 7-14

    Lovely landscapes but I like the closeup shots with great detail and texture too. Interesting what lenses being used most.

    What a great area for photography. Looking forward to seeing more.

    (O)IS vs IBIS?

    Since I am not sure - what is the conclusion when shooting a Pana-(O)IS lens on the OMD? Switch OIS off and use IBIS or the other way around?
    Thanks a lot, Tom

    PS: I am trying to compare the Oly 75-300 vs the Pana 100-300 and I am not sure how I should use the 100-300

    Switch at least 1 of, either OIS or IBIS - together they do not work well.

    Given the fact how well IBIS works I would trust IBIS more.

    Not long after I got an EPL-1, I did some testing with it and a Panasonic 14-45. I actually found turning on both OIS in the lens and IBIS in the body gave better results than either lens or body stabilization alone (not at all what I was expecting). Not long after I did my tests, I read an article by Ctein on the Online Photographer who came to the same conclusion with and E-P1 and one of the longer Panasonic zooms (maybe the 45-200).

    Since the IBIS in the OM-d is so different, I wouldn't assume it would have the same results. It's not that hard to do some tests. Just shoot several shots in a row at the same settings (I wrote down which IS setting I was using for each series of shots, lightroom doesn't tell me, but maybe it's in the EXIF and some program will tell you), then see how many are sharp with various combinations of shutter speed, focal length and IS. This will tell you not only which IS or combo is more effective, but it will also tell you how slow you can go and how many duplicates you should take when pushing the limits of what you can hold.

    I have found that the Panasonic lenses that I have used really need some time to stabilize for best results. When I bring the camera up to my eye and immediately take a photo, the results are often blurry, but if I hold the camera steady for a while first, it works much better.

    I've also found that I really need to turn off OIS when using short shutter speeds, the OIS can make things blurry at 1/500. I never really tried to test the limits of this, but anytime I'm at a speed that I consider a safe hand-holding speed, I make sure I turn OIS off. I suspect the same thing with the EPL-1 IBIS as I've had some photos that look strangely blurry in good light with fast shutter speeds, but when I tried to test this, I couldn't really see any differences between IBIS on or off at shutter speeds of 1/320 to 1/2000. This is in stark contrast to the Minolta/Sony DSLR IBIS which seems to never need to be turned off (fast shutter speed or even on a tripod doesn't seem to cause a problem with any of the Minolta or Sony DSLRs I've used).

    I have wondered if the OM-D is more like the EPL-1 or like the Sony system in this regard. Anyone with an OM-D have comments about IBIS and fast shutter speeds?

    Terry: Thanks, this helps a lot. When I was there before, I used the 75 and 90 on an M9 and M8. The M9/OMD could be a perfect combo.

    Thanks, again,
    Matt

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I've read, elsewhere, that the Olympus 'turns' the Panasonic OIS off. That's probably the case on the Pany 45-175 that I bought, yesterday. No switch. Evidently, not the case on the pany's with a physical switch?

    Cheers, Matt

    No, the IS on the 100-300 works no matter if ibis is on or off. You have to switch OIS off at the lens if you dont want it.

    Hi Tom
    . . . . and I'm sure that's the right answer - the IBIS on the OMD is really good - I've taken sharp shots at 1/10th second at 300 (read 600),

    My question to the OMD posters here are your shots done in ORF/RAW or are you using Jpeg? Just curious as I've noted when in Jpeg I do get some smearing of the fine details like grass and textures, where when I shoot in RAW it's perfect with all detail intact.

    This is a sweet little standard telephoto. I like the way it renders the OOF. Handheld, AF, so, I could have done better. No switch to turn OIS off on the lens; so, I think the IBIS is on and no lens OIS. The first four are at 175mm.

    I don't mind some extra work if it helps the end result so I shoot raw plus JPG. I have the camera set to UniWB so everything is a bit green until opened in Lightroom or ACR. The JPGs are deleted right away, I use them only for checking focus (when focusing is that critically). as shooting raw only gives a too rough embedded JPG for the in-camera reviews.

    So raw it is. Now my keeper ratio is about a dozen images a year so I fully understand everybody looking for a faster way of handling the images. But, I'm on my path, it works for me and now reading about the NR not completely turned off also when set to zero in the camera I think I stay with raw.

    Sometimes it drops into your lap - and sometimes it must be colour
    This is from my hotel room in Bergen op Zoom - with the 14-150.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    First up I've decided that I find the 12-50mm pretty irritating. I've used it a lot this week and I can't even count how many times the zoom ring has shifted to auto zoom mode inadvertently. That being said, here is some crop dusting action from out in the fields of The Palouse.

    We were watching the crop duster do a pass in front of us and then loop around behind. To stay out of his way and up wind we moved further up the road. I guess to thank us the pilot did a fly over. Just as he was getting very close to us he turned on the smoke. I didn't realize what he was doing. Took the shot (look at lever of prop vs. my camera level - yikes) and thought he was spraying so I hit the deck and banged myself up a bit (knee and hip bruised and stiff). I have tons more shots to go through but these were a few of the group. Last one was a second smoke pass... fool me once...fool me twice? No.

    Wow - that was quite an 'adventure' and a scary one too ! Hope you're not too knackered to soldier on, Terry.
    I've read elsewhere about the loose shifting of that zoom ring, still I found it a nifty little lens - although later on, I decided not to buy it in favour of the grip.

    But hey - you're P100-300 didn't let you down
    Surely the plane didn't fly fast, I reckon, still excellent action shots and giving a real sense of your 'adventure'.

    Take care and hope to see more action from the Palouse !

    All the best.

    Hey Matt, I don't know but something tells me you really seem to like this lens ...
    Sharpness is good and I like its bokeh.
    So congrats with this new 'baby'.

    Happy shooting.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Still debating whether this is better than my 5n. It's between the slightly better IQ and ergonomics of the 5n (for me) and the focusing speed of the OMD.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Funny, I thought the 5n was a very good camera but couldn't get used to the ergonomics. I find myself liking the OM-D more each day. At some point I will need to try the grip but I have a trip planned and it will need to be after that and my finances recover.

    Jim,

    Its a funny thing. I got very used to one hand use on the 5n (I also had the 7 for a while and really liked it) and thought the grip was excellent. I feel the need to stabilize the OMD with the off hand when I use the dials.

    I also think that the hump and add on flash make for a distinctly worse product in terms of overall packaging. Almost all of the lenses will protrude from the body on both Nex and OMD so carrying in a bag requires pointing lens down. That negates some of the OMD small lens advantage and actually weighs in favor of the nex 5 or 7 since the body height is less than the OMD.

    All Those Bottoms!
    (I like bottoms).

    Excellent stuff Bart.

    I'm afraid I made another slip up at Red dot cameras (they're so nice and helpful).

    My 80-200 f4 arrived the other day . . . such a lovely thing, and it works so nicely with the OMD as well.

    Just a couple of preliminary snaps:

    You know I always love your chicken photos--these as well, but this one really caught my eye.

    Jono -
    Interesting to see the difference in this field vs. the wheat and barley fields I was photographing over the past several days (my crop duster photos).
