    How was the AF in this situation (referring to speed, obviously the shot seems reasonably in focus).

    Thank again.

    Hi Ricardo
    I'm trying to be economical with my posts, so you'll excuse me for two birds with one stone.

    I agree, it's not quite up there with the K5 and the D7000 at high ISO . . . but it's quite close, and just for once it's nice to see a 4/3 sensor not drastically under performing (I've never been convinced by the excuses for 4/3 on the basis that the sensor is smaller), sure, it's cropped at the edges, but otherwise it's much too close for the size of an APSc sensor for that to be a limiting factor - it's the [email protected] sensors that Panasonic have come up with that are to blame!

    So - having agreed that high ISO not as good as a K5/D7000 (but close), I'll go on to AF . . . I don't really use tracking focus, and I suspect that like everything outside Nikon it's not really very good . . .but, like lots of previous Olympus cameras the single shot AF seem very accurate, the difference between this and previous cameras is that it also seems very fast. This picture was taken by touching Sim's eye on the LCD - AF and capture was as good as instantaneous - and that's with the light assist turned off (does anyone really focus by flashing lights in people's eyes?!)

    The AF I am interested enough here is single, not tracking or CDAF. It's how I shoot on streets. I wonder if someone walking towards me would be an issue though.

    Thanks for the info, it's what I am interested in.

    Hi Ricardo - the touch / shutter works really well, and is really fast. For someone walking towards you on the street, you just touch the LCD and it takes the shot - it's impressively quick. A series of shots might be different. Tracking focus I haven't tried, but dPreview had it as a shortcoming and I've no reason for disbelief.

    Thanks Peter.
    The 12-50 is a real conundrum. So many people have been rude about it. But it's a real 'do anything' lens, a Jack Of All Trades (I'm sure this is what it's intended for) - of course, it isn't perfect (which 4 times zoom is) but if you're willing to stop down a little you can have sharp corners at 12mm - and of course the macro mode isn't as good as the PL 45 . . . but it does HAVE a macro mode!

    I was initially rude, but now it all makes sense. The lens is ok. But the important thing is: slow decent zooms, fast high quality primes. This is where 4/3rds failed and what Olympus is doing now. And I like it. It makes all the sense in the world. I still wish they did the slower zoom more on the constant F4 side of things but I guess F4 for the size and range can still be a bit fast.

    I don't have a cat or a dog so most new cameras get the required flow shots. So, nice when new cameras come out in the spring. Thoughts on the camera coming soon.

    Uwe, Terry, Gilpen
    Great shots all - Uwe - I hear what you say about the 14-140 compared to the Sony 18-200 . . . .have you tried the little Olympus 14-150 - I had one back in the autumn with the EP3, and thought it a fine lens (and it is small too).

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Hi Uwe .
    the peeling paint reminds me of the first photo I ever had blown up and framed . . it was probably in the mid seventies, and probably taken with a Contax 139.

    I have to say that I'm a big fan of the 12-50 kit lens. It seems to me that it's just what a kit lens should be - small and versatile with decent image quality. Of course, we all want it to be tiny with perfect image quality, but something has to give somewhere!

    all the best

    Not sure if you've commented on this elsewhere, but knowing how much you like the focus peaking on the Nex, how do you find using manual focus lenses on the OM-D?

    Hi There Guy
    I'm afraid I haven't even tried any of them . . . I might try some of the R lenses, but I don't have a m4/3 to R adapter at the moment.
    Manual focusing in general works okay on a tripod for macro, but I find it pretty disturbing when you're trying to get the composition right and it keeps zooming in and out.

    I guess that in the end I decided that I wasn't really going to use either camera for manual focus lenses - that's what the M9 is for.

    Two things spring to mind.
    1. Focus peaking is the best
    2. the stabilisation on the OMD would be wonderful.

    A draw perhaps!

    all the best

    Hi, very interesting thread !

    I was looking at the OMD to use it with MF lenses (long focal lengths, 300-1000mm) for birding. I thought the 5-axis ibis would be a wonderful help both for focusing and shooting (if I read correctly).

    But, what's that "zooming in and out" about ?

    So - you reckon it's a Sony sensor?
    where did you get that information from?

    hI Rafael - it's only the focus assist zoom - good on a tripod, but I find it awkward when you're hand holding.
    You'll know all about it with your cameras.

    Ordered the black kit with the 12-50 lens and the grip plus a spare battery. I got an update from him today that it should be arriving to him on Monday then turned around and shipped to me that same day. So it looks like the middle of next week for me.

    For those of you complaining about the lack of a hood for the m.Zuiko 12-50 kit zoom, our friend Gary over at Gariz.com has created this:



    Here is the link to order from eBay.

    I have already ordered one.

    Won't it vignette at the 12mm end, I get the impression it is made for a 50mm focal length lens, not a 12-50mm?

    I went to my sister in-law house. Saw that girl and took 4 pics of her with Voig. 25mm 0.95. Exposure and contrast adjustment with LR and then converted to b&w with nik silver pro effex. Are you serious about the M?

    Portraits from Yesterday

    Fun with OMD is that I don't care what ISO I'm shooting.

    Nice shoes.

    My grips is what saves the camera (together with the Panasonic micro 25/1.4). It transforms the camera from good but too small and too cramped camera into a good camera which easily can be carried around with no risk of slip out of my hand. At the same time it also make it fiddly to switch battery and press the button on the top of the camera. A small detail worth mentioning is that the tripod mount now is aligned with the optical axis.

    I wish the grip was built in and now when it is not I wish Olympus had given us a way to configure the now redundant shutter button and front control wheel into something else but just doubling the functions on the grip.

    I use half the grip only, sometimes called landscape grip) and everything said above is valid for my hands only.

    Great portraits, special mood on the first with great BW conversion

    I am sure Voightlander 25mm is a great lens but the credit is for your talent

    The only drawback in using the landscape part of the grip only, is that the access to the battery compartment requires the dismantling of the grip, this is way I choose to use both parts even if I do not shoot so often in portrait mode.

    Hi Uwe,
    I adjusted every thing in LR and then used Nik Silver Effex Pro for b&w conversion.
