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

    Well... Swapped my L1 with kit lens with a G1. Kept my R to 4/3 adapter, 25 lux with latest firmware and ordered the DMW-MA1. When the adaptor comes on Monday, I can use the 25mm and my R lens.... next comes the M & LTM adapter. I will eventually end up with adapters costing more than the G1 ... which is still cheaper than another M8.

    Carl... any words of advise on G1 settings for the 25 lux?

    Any samples of R lens on the G1 to drool on until my adapter shows up?

    Robert.

    Robert, I've only had the lens for one day, but my settings are as follows. Aperture priority mode, AFS, AF+MF ON, MF Assist ON.

    This may not be the place to ask this question, but could someone explain what people mean when they talk about "pixel level sharpness"?

    By definition, a pixel is a single element, so how can one pixel be sharper than another?

    I think, they just mean at the so called pixel peeping level of 100% the image appears very sharp, hence the phrase.

    By the way Sean's review, Part 1 on the G1 is up on his sight. I made some comments on the LUF digital forum.

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

    I finally was able to put the Leica 50 lux pre-ASPH on the G1 today...thanks to John Millich. I was at the Farmer's Market when I took these shots.
    This lens has a wonderful smooth focus. The sun was very bright, so using the LCD was a problem. Focusing through the EVF worked fine.

    Cindy,
    Fun shots with the 50. Took mine out today and I am excited. Have not had a chance to process yet but the focusing was smooth and quick. The live view magnification is wonderful. Terry, I will be in your fair city tomorrow for a few days. Looking forward to getting around there again. I have all day sunday for photo fun with the G1. Can't wait to try the 90AA for some compressed landscapes and other stuff. Such a great city for photgraphy. Frank

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

    Oh, nice series Terry. I especially like the first with the sailboat. I'm guessing this was maybe the 14-45 since the EXIF says 45mm for 2 and the last 35mm.

    Really nice shots everyone. I don't know if these were jpegs, RAWs processed or with what, but the colors are all very nice (as well as the monos).

    I have no idea. I didn't use any brush or tool that would have left a mark. May I blame it on Capture One (which keeps crashing???)
    Thanks for pointing it out to me. I re-processed it.

    Terry and Cindy:

    WONDERFUL Catches.

    Cindy, the apples look absolutely gorgeous.

    And Terry, now I see what Tony Bennet's been singin' about all these years. The first and second ones of the bridge are awesome.

    Terry, love the moonrise shots! Bravo

    Here's a shot I took of my youngest daughter while on the tram into town yesterday morning... from the seat opposite, composed from waist level using the G1's articulating LCD.

    G1 + 4/3rds Adapter + Hexanon 57mm f1.2
    1/125s f/2 at 57.0mm iso320


    This is developed from RAW using Qimage Studio + the custom ICC profile for the G1 - created by Mike Chaney. Levels only slightly tweaked and scaled in Lightzone.

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    What a wonderful picture. I love the skin tone quality...must be a very good ICC profile. Truly a great capture.

    Brian, that hexar 50 sure sings for you -- gorgeous portrait!

    Can you tell us more about qimage studio? I used to use qimage for printing, but was not aware they added a raw processor. Is it still a PC only program?

    Cheers,

    Brian,

    Every day I go on this thing to see what your G1 hath wrought. Great shot. (And don'tcha just love that articulating LCD??? That alone is worth the price of the G1 and all its capababilities.)

    One thing I really like about this site is the images that get shared as part of the discussion. Some sites discourage the use of images in the threads which I think is a mistake.

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

    A photography site that discourage images in threads? Hmm.

    I could understand it if it were bandwidth-related. Every photo that I post is on my own server...not that I have anything of quality compared to the talent on this forum!

    EDIT: OK, just discovered at least one of my posts in another forum (I assume the one you are speaking of) with my own photo, hosted on my server, has been deleted. Other similar posts (same thread) still exist...

    Trying to wrap my brain around this logic...

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

    Wow! thanks to everyone for your very generous praise - Frank, the Qimage Studio profiles are offered to Qimage Studio purchasers... but even the standard profile works well.

    Here's a link to Qimage Studio - Windows only I'm afraid.

    I've had countless free upgrades over the years from Mike Chaney - the developer. It's probably the best value software I've ever bought (lifetime of free upgrades policy).

    Kind Regards

    Brian Mosley, love the bokeh, excellent sharpness. Articulating waist level LCD is a must for street photography hehe.

    I have a question about the AF assist light on the G1. Is it the flash that does it or is there a dedicated light? Also, how is the low light focusing, as compared to the E420/520. Thanks Clay

    I can't give you comparison info since I don't own the other cameras; however, the G1 has a dedicated light and focuses extremely well and reasonably quickly in low light. Better yet, you can manual focus very accurately in low light due to the light amplification of the EVF. Much better than I could ever do with the M8 in similar low light conditions.

    I have a lot of fun with my new combination G1 with Novoflex adapter and CV Nokton 1,4/40. This lens fits ideal with G1: small and fast! Together with the upcoming Pana 20mm it will be a wonderfull lightweight camera. Here some examples: (I hope you don't mind that I posted the pictures already in another forum)

    Absolutely beautiful Karl, no problem with the double post - love the way this lens looks on the G1, and the IQ is wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing
