    I fully agree and I am not against the GX8.

    But my issue is that the highly praised compatibility of 43/m43 is really sucking. Why can't Olympus and Panasonic coordinate and codevelop the m43 rang, this would help the system much, MUCH more!

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I took Friday afternoon off and went for a spring time drive up towards Hatcher Pass. Mostly went out to shoot a little film (LF & MF), but took my GX-8 and 12-35/2.8 along, just so I would have some images to look at and play with while waiting for film to come back from the lab. I'll admit that it was liberating to simply scramble over the rocks with the GX-8, unencumbered by a heavy tripod and take a few handheld "snapshots".

    Here is one of the images I liked best from the GX-8, in both the original color and converted to B&W with SilverEfex Pro versions. This is the Little Susitna River. I made prints of these yesterday and will probably use them for the June color and B&W print exchanges. Looking at the JPGs posted here now, they could perhaps use a bit more sharpening, but the prints look just right.

    In any case, it was a wonderful day for a drive and to get out of the city. Spring is in full swing here now. :-)

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Last week, we travelled by bike (and partly by boat and train) from Passau (Germany) to Vienna (Austria) alongside the Danube. It was a very easy ride, through a beautiful scenery. Top it off with some days in lovely Vienna, and there's your nice holiday.

    Some gear talk: I took a F-Stop Kenti (nice and small, goes perfectly on your back), with three cameras with a lens attached (so I didn't have to change lenses): EM1 with 40-150 2.8, EM5 with 12-40 2.8 and Pen-F with 17 1.8. Although that's a lot of gear to carry, the Kenti worked perfectly in carrying that weight effortlessly.

    And then some images (more in the album on Flickr)

    Definitely on my list to buy again. The lens is sharp from corner to corner at f1.4. And you can get decent bokeh from it, in my experience.

    That said - you could make do with the 20/1.7 - there is not a lot in it.

    This was taken on my GH-2 with the PanaLeica 25/1.4 just after the lens came out. I think I bought one of the first ones in the UK.

    The 4/3 25mm is legendary for good reasons. I agree that prices are steep, but sooner or later


    Edit: The 14-50 is a bit too contrasty for my taste on the E-M1. Works better on Panasonic cameras, but AF is much faster on the Olympus

    I tested my 20mm f/1.7 (mk 1) against my new 25mm f/1.7, and the bokeh was about the same—OK until the B/G gets detailed and contrasty (I became used to using negative Clarity and Detail in C1 long ago). But I still miss the 20mm FOV; I sold that lens as mentioned along with a Sigma 30mm (for $300 the pair) when the 25 came along. For under $200au, the 25mm was and remains a good buy.

    Next, a
    15mm!

    PS The f/1.4 is way out of my pensioner budget!

    But don't count on it to be cheaper or lighter. Another thing I like with the original 4/3 lenses is that they are are corrected optically as opposed to in software, the high quality ones also being telecentric or near telecentric. The advantages in image quality can always be discussed, but in my eyes, these factors make for images with more pleasant rendering and better corner-to-corner sharpness. Interestingly, the Zuiko 75 f/1.8 m4/3 is optically corrected, and there are no doubts about the qualities of that lens. I believe the PanaLeica 42.5mm f/1.2 m4/3 is very well corrected optically, but haven't been able to try that lens yet.

    I have a Zuiko 9-18mm f/4-5.6 in 4/3 mount on its way, and it will be very interesting to compare performance with the corresponding m4/3 lens.

    I have three 4/3 lenses which are excellent (11–22, 14–54 and 50 macro), but avoided the 12–60 Zuiko because of its barrel distortion at its shortest focal length


    From photozone.de.

    BTW, the above pic shows in-camera corrected distortion.

    ... which is one of the reasons why I have the PanaLeica. It's next to impossible to make a lens that is small, sharp, with little distortion for a reasonable price. Olympus chose to throw out the distortion part, Panasonic went for less reach and a more expensive lens, presumably with more advanced optical solutions, but I must admit I haven't studied and compared the optical details.

    There are exceptions though. The 50mm macro is (was) small, light, extremely sharp, with little distortion, all at a very reasonable price

    I'm such a gear whore.

    My youngest son is getting married in a week's time and I decided I really had to have a DG 25/1.4 for some portrait work. That's my justification for it, anyway.

    Here is another from the last time around - on my GH-2.



    This is the detail from the sunglasses wide open. Seriously, you would have to pay nearly two grand for a 50/1.4 Summilux for your M rangefinder and still probably find that focus was out.

    Coot with chicks - it's not hard to understand how something so ugly can grow up to be so bland.

    Well, some Aussies like chilli, as do many ppl globally. So it’s time to make some sauce—my supermarket is selling all of these chilli varieties for $10 per kilo. Except for Carolina Reapers, which go for $350/kg!

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Received the 25/1.4 today - not much time to play with it but my cat was fairly obliging.

    This is even sharper wide open than I remember although maybe the extra pixels on the GX8 help.

    Both shots are RAWs loaded into LR and then exported with no processing (except cropping).



    100% crop - focus was just at the edge of the left eye. My poor cat seems to suffer from weeping on occasion but the vet says this is OK.



    I bought this lens from a grey-importer at about 2/3rds the normal price. The sharpness here would be about the same as my M8 with the Elmarit 90/2.8 or my (now sold) A7R + FE 90/2.8. Suffice it to say the m43rds solution is significantly cheaper, overall.

    I love that lens! If I have to name one fault: I did find the lens hood a bit too large. The hood for the Macro Elmarit 45 2.8 is smaller and fits as well. Now all is well. If you want to try it for yourself: the part number is VYC1005.

    When I came back to m43rds the 45/2.8 was the second lens I re-acquired. I didn't know that about the hood so I will try it.

    It is one of my favorite lens too for MFT, although I use it less since I got the m.Zuiko 12-40mm F2.8 which is so sharp and uniform at almost all apertures. As for the 25mm F1.4, I like its rendering a lot, especially for portraits, but like many Panasonic lenses it is less uniform than the Olympus, but is sharper in the center. I think that Olympus is going for more uniformity and microcontrast, while Panasonic put emphasis on sharpness in the center and smoother bokey.

    The big lens hood is bothering me a lot, all the more so that you can't reverse it to store the lens. It is the main reason why I tend to go out with the 12-40mm rather than the 25mm.
