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

    I went to Kamakura last weekend with a friend of mine visiting from the US. At one of the temples there were several hawks around that would occasionally come over to grab some food from the tables were people were eating. I've gained some respect for people photographing birds. Catching them in flight isn't easy. I needed to up the ISO a little more, most of them were a little blurry.

    Taken with the E-510, kit lens 70mm.

    Thanks Barjohn, just got back yesterday to the cold and rain. Man I miss it already. I can see how people go down for vacation and never come back...

    Impressive pic, specially at 'only' 70 mm. BIF is very difficult INMNSHO, and this is excellent.

    Thanks! I noticed the focal length on review. I didn't realize the bird was that close looking through the view finder. That's probably one reason this picture had a fast enough shutter speed.

    I like this shot. For some reason my first impression of their "expression" was that all off look like they are holding back a laugh and have a big secret.

    Panasonic G1 + 4/3rds adapter + ZD 14-35mm f2


    This is from 9 bracketed shots, converted to DNG, superesolution via PhotoAcute, converted to TIFF using Qimage Studio, levels and scaling in LightZone.

    I've just printed it to 16"x12" and the sharp detail is stunning.

    Kind Regards

    Exciting scenery Cindy, it would be good to see a shot of your G1 with the CV 28 attached...

    Here's another shot from my outing yesterday - I noticed that the first shot above was oversharpened.

    This is from a single exposure, tripod mounted. Converted from RAW using Qimage Studio (just bought the ICC profile for the G1 for Qimage Studio)... and then B&W conversion and scaling done using Lightzone.

    Panasonic G1 + 4/3rds adapter + ZD 14-35mm f2 SWD
    1/160s f/8 at 14.0mm iso100

    Brian, Beautiful. I am a sucker for a dry stone fence in a scene. I've never seen one covered in snow. I will post a shot later with the CV 28 on the G1 for you.
    Karl, Welcome to the forum. Your first post is stunning. I really love the second with the old spire against the modern glass building. It is very well done.

    Cindy,
    That Leica type strap connector you have on the lug has failed on several M8s as I recall. You might want to consider something a little more secure.

    Brian,

    Absolutely jawdropping photos. Very good eye!

    Moreover, I'd read all kinds of wonderful reviews about the ZD 14-35 f2.0 (and all their other super optics) and wondered what a lens like that (via the 4/3s adapter) would be like on the G1 and ...like...wow! I'm just totally blown away.

    Do you have to focus manually?

    John, Please tell me more about where you learned of the Leica strap failures? I have heard of Leica Lug failures, but not of the strap failure. I sure don't want to put my camera in jeopardy.

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

    In the Leica Forum a while back there was some discussion about a user that had the metal/plastic loop end on the Leica strap come open under stress and it caused his camera to fall to the ground so he was warning that it was too easy for that plastic piece to move opening up the small metal clip and allowing it to come lose. At least that is my recollection. Since then I didn't trust using that type of connection. If I get a chance later I will take a picture of what I am using and post it for you.

    Ocean, that first one looks like a shot of Sunset Key. A great place to stay but pricey. They really pamper you there and the restaurant is really good. I think I would rather be there right now.

    V/r, yes, both were taken at Sunset Key on Christmas day, almost at the same spot. And you are right that restaurant is very good. We had a great time in Key West.

    Perhaps you will recognize some of these shots. (Done with the M8).

    Thank you Peter,

    yes - focus is manual at the moment (hope there will be further upgrades announced for ZD firmware throughout the range, to make them work with the G1 CDAF)

    I was out again this morning with another classic 4/3rds wideangle lens - the 11-22mm f2.8-f3.5... hope to have something worth sharing soon.

    Kind Regards

    Just started using the 25mm Leica D Summilux on the G1 with the DMW-MA1 adapter. Fully functional on the G1 after I upgraded the lens firmware to version 2.1. Here are two handheld snaps indoors at f/1.4.

    Brian,

    I don't know if it's me but I think your 14-35mm totally blows away the 11-22. Good shots though.

    Scho...the 25mm is a winner too.

    Hi Scho,

    please DO NOT show any more photo's taken with the 25mm Leica D Summilux.

    After one full week of searching for information on the internet, and debating with me and myself, today I just decided not to buy this gem...

    And now you post these beautiful photo's...

    Please tell me it is very heavy and bulky on the G1, not worth it

    A couple of earlier posts used the abbreviation 'ZD' in connection with a line of Four Thirds lenses; pardon my ignorance, but what does 'ZD' stand for?

    Hi Peter, I had the same debate and lost Did I mention how well crafted this lens is and how nice it feels balanced in the left hand when shooting handheld? Yes, it is heavy (1 lb) but not at all uncomfortable to shoot on the G1 once you figure out how to hold it properly. Razor sharp and creamy smooth bokeh with this piece of glass.

    Regards,
    Carl

    I thought there was some rule against posting photographer's porno on this site.

    Yeah...I'll second that. Gorgeous lens.

    Thanks John and peter. Bill Algood's head shots with the 25 summilux helped convince that this would be a very good portrait lens.

    What are your thoughts about it on the G1. Bulky or OK ?

    What are your thoughts about it on the G1. Bulky or OK ?
    Hi Terry, It definitely handles differently than an M lens or kit lens on the G1, but I don't find it too bulky. You have to support the camera by grasping the lens near the adapter between your thumb and index finger and then let your other fingers form a cup around the lens barrel. Right hand operates the buttons and shutter as usual but you don't need to grasp the camera very tightly as all of the support is in the left hand. Actually quite comfortable and solid when shooting handheld. Autofocus motor is a bit loud, but works well and is precise. I also like the ability to adjust focus manually when in autofocus mode just by turning the focus ring which kicks the camera into magnified focus mode (if you keep shutter button half pressed). Face detection also seems to work well with this lens.

    Regards,
    Carl

    I think with the articulating LCD the G1 makes a very good portrait camera. It's almost like a modern day twin lens reflex in that you can keep an eye on the subject while keeping an eye on the 'electronic' ground glass.

    Wow Carl. Your shots, along with Bill Algood's shots, remind me why I bought my Pentax 31 ltd. I have been so down on the size of my Pentax kit, which is why I have been considering the G1. Maybe I should just go take some pictures... :-)

    Scho...the 25mm is a winner too.

    Hi Peter, I'm surprised you can tell at this size - but yes, the 14-35 blows just about everything away in terms of pixel level sharpness... plenty of scope for even better sensors as 4/3rds and m4/3rds takes off in popularity.

    Kind Regards

Yes, it is heavy (1 lb) but not at all uncomfortable to shoot on the G1 once you figure out how to hold it properly. Razor sharp and creamy smooth bokeh with this piece of glass.

    Carl, is the aperture ring on the lens fully operative with the G1? I see you have it on A; is that because you use the camera´s setting wheel for it?

    I´d be (if possible) even more tempted if I could actually set the aperture on the lens for manual or aperture priority shooting, just like I do with my trusty Digilux 2 (back with a new sensor yesterday....).

    Per, Yes, you can either use the A setting on the ring and then use the wheel on the camera to set aperture or do it manually with the aperture ring on the camera.
