    It's just such good fun, and the results are absolutely fine.
    Ah, thanks Jono, I should try that. I've been doing the "tap on the screen to focus and capture" method, but I'll try the 300mm "remote macro".

    Jono,

    I may already have posted this but I thought it went well with your cat photo. Mine sneaking into a lighting equipment bag.
    OM-D 12-50.

    I love those two cat pics Jono & Jim, ours have long gone through the "cat-flap in the sky" but that is such typical behaviour and shown nicely too - thanks

    I assume it originally comes from French, where "bosquet" means a formal plantation of trees in a formal garden.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I've been having some fun playing with the friendly bees in my garden. I have a passion for bee macro photography and am finding that the EM5 + kit lens makes a suprisingly competent set-up for this use (so much so that I am considering selling my canon 100 LIS macro lens, much to my suprise)

    using the kit flash

    Your pictures inspire me to go out and try again with the OM-D and 12-50.

    I'm recovering well from the surgery, my grip strength is up from 11kg to 14kg this month, but I still can't lift the 1DSmkII, let alone with a lens attached.
    Which is why I ought the OM-D in the 1st place, 4 days of shooting left my wrist in agony for two days, even with the OM-D.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I started out down the EM5 route because as I get older (70+) I'm getting a bit of arthritis in hands, shoulders and neck such that the weight of the 5Dmk2 + even the 100mm LIS macro causes me problems both during and particularly after a shoot. (its even worse if I stick the 70-300LIS or my siggie 400 f5.6 on)

    I traded my back-up 60D + a couple of less used lenses for the EM5 and now have a bag with body + 4 lenses that is less weighty than the 5Dmk2 + 70-300LIS

    Its a magic system if you suffer from these sorts of problems in my experience, I just wish it would do Birds in Flight as well as it does Bees in Flight

    Some action shoots. This was posted on another thread, but I thought it might be interesting /useful here as well:

    Youth Soccer:

    #1


    #2


    #3


    #4


    While I think I did okay, the camera, when compared to a dSLR, the OM-D was not in the same league regarding C-AF. The C-AF on the Oly simply does not work, the images were shot with S-AF and the operator pumping the focus button. The EVF sucks when compared to a dSLR optical. but if one continued to follow the action with both eyes open, using the right when the EVF refreshed and the left between refreshes, one could manage. This was five year olds, dunno if I could shoot something faster like seven year olds with the OM-D.

    The more I work with the OM-D, the easier it is to get the shots I want. Hopefully I'm only an update or two away from a viable C-AF.

    The DOF, as expected, is much more distracting due to lack of fast long lenses, multiplied by the small sensor, than shooting with dSLR's. When the new Pany 35-100 and the Oly 75 much of the detailed DOF should bokeh away.

    what lets you know your image is in focus with the manual lenses?...i think i've read the em5 doesn't have anything like 'peaking'...on my d700 I have a green dot which shows focus...also, the screen is bright enough that i can pretty much just use my eye to focus unless it's a really dark scene...

    No peaking or green dot but.....manually focusing the lens is easy with a magnified view which can be accessed by setting one of the function buttons to provide that.

    Hi Folks,

    Have been enjoying everyone's pics in this thread.

    I am currently in Manarola in the Cinque Terre celebrating my 30th wedding anniversary with my honey. It is amazingly scenic here. Today, we took a challenging hike from Monterroso to Corniglia. Here are a few of my faves. All were taken with the ‘misunderstood’ 12-50 lens.

    I would encourage all the readers of this wonderful site to venture the Cinque Terre hikes during their lifetimes as they are truly, imho, one of the wonders of the world.

    The first is: Colors and man in Monterosso Beach
    The second is: Heading into Vernazza
    The Third is: View of Corniglia w/cactus in front
    The last is: My Wife is Free!

    Hope you enjoy the photos,

    Ed

    HI There - Thank You!
    What I've found is that longer focal length lenses are really easy - half pressing the shutter engages the Image Stabilisation, which makes it very easy to see what is, and what is not in focus - you don't need to do stop down metering because the camera gains up the EVF properly.

    There isn't any focus peaking, However there is a kind of high contrast 'sheen' that you can see on in focus areas (apart from the fact that it's easy to see if they're sharp). Not so simple on the LCD, but fine through the EVF.

    Hi Les
    I think that the magnifier option is only okay on a tripod, not handheld - because you can't see the whole view, and when you zooom out again the focus will have changed - on the other hand I really don't think that it (or the green dot) are really necessary - it's pretty easy to see what's in focus anyway.

    I've had a higher hit rate using the Leica 60 elmarit macro than with any other camera/lens combination (for taking macros handheld) - it's easy to see when it's in focus, and there is so little shutter lag (or shake).

    Tip for using magnify button

    Momo, it is on both. A tip--reading your post I realized I hadn't really tried any of my FD, Nikkor or Hexanon on the Em5. I used them extensively in the beginning of m4/3 when there were so many holes in the lens lineup. Haven't shot with them for awhile.

    The tip--whatever button you choose for magnify (better yet I think is just to set a multi function button, I have mine on the record button--and choose the magnify option) you need to press it QUICKLY to get it to magnify. Just now I had forgotten that myself and wondered why it didn't magnify. Then I remembered the discussion about this and sure enough, it takes a QUICK press, no lingering LOL. Same quick press to get back to full image. When you are in magnified mode you can chiose 5, 7, 10 or 14x magnification.

    Focusing is easy in magnifed view with MF lenses. But Jono is probably right. I just haven't done any MF yet with it. With the Panny G3 I had PNP which was helpful--to a degree. This seems fine though. I only MF now with my LB tilt adapter and Nikkor lenses and sadly the adapter won't fit under the EVF on my OMD so still can only shoot it with G3.

    I have a Voigtlander Leica M to MFT adaptor coming, and it strikes me as worth asking if anyone has used Visoflex lenses with one? I assume there will be focussing limitations, perhaps infinity only? It's just that the idea of my Telyt 560mm becoming a 1120mm lens on the OM-D is too good not to try out!

    Perhaps you can tell which are which (exif should be there)

    Poppy Heads


    Lying in Wait

    These two have something special about them, probably the Genko - the third - less so, but there's no denying that Leica glass stands out.

    But all these are very fine and enjoyable shots, Jono.

    All the best.

    Thank you! You put the 7-14 to excellent use. I am quite tempted to get one...

    Hi Momo,

    As you'll have gathered, on this forum - ask a question and you get several responders. That's great, particularly with the OM-D when there are so many ways to configure things to your own taste. For example, with legacy lenses Diane and I seem to approach things similarly - magnify, focus, then revert to full view. I use the Fn2 button to activate the magnification, while Diane uses the Rec button.
    That chap Jono must be a contrarian since he gets there in a completely different way.......

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    to start with. I just thought I would mention that I moved to the OMD because I am hoping i can just stop worrying about camera upgrades and get on with it for several years with the OMD. Its a terrifically fun camera to shoot with, IQ in raw is satisfying and I have a nice lens system to choose from. I love the options and have few niggles about the camera. Sort of stating the obvious but some do wonder I suppose.

    I gave up upgrading my FF 5Ds and moved to a smaller system and I find it better than a compromise. I do print some also--and print up to 17x25 (used to have prints done much larger with less resolution cams for commercial work) and have decided enough.....

    Beautiful windmill photos. I just don't see landscapes and clouds like that anymore. Love it.

    Here are a few from the Sumidagawa fireworks festival in Tokyo last weekend. I think I finally figured out the trick to getting better photos, an ND filter. These were taking with an ND16 and a few with a ND400. The Live Bulb mode on the OM-D is great.
