    Over and over again. It's both expensive and bulky, but it's the perfect speed and focal length range (although I do wish it went to 10mm ... ;-). I've rented it twice ... the imaging is superb.

    Hmm. If I sold the Summilux, ZD 11-22 and Leica 14-50, I'd have most of the money for it. Hmm. Hmm.

    Tempting, isn't it. And it's only one stop slower than the Summilux...

    Bought a new lens today, the Pana 7-14. If somebody had suggested to me six months ago to forget about all my Nikon gear and go all m4/3 (plus maybe an E-5 when I need weather sealing etc.), I would have taken it for a somewhat silly joke. Now, I'm not so sure. The 7-14 is at least as good as I need, and why carry two kilograms when I can carry one?

    GH1 with 7-14mm @ 14mm, f/4 and 1/15s. Handheld, cropped top and bottom.

    Here's some shots with the Sigma 500mm F7.3 APO (AF if you have a Nikon or etc. ) which sells typically for $250 (ex~mint) these days.

    No processing at all:

    At F/8, 1/320s ISO640 - About 30 feet away







    No Processing at all:

    At F/11, 1/160s ISO400 75% crop - About 60 feet away







    Here's the difference between f/8 and f/11: Processed somewhat (Curves in PS).

    F8, 1/100s ISO400

    F11, 1/80s ISO400
    I can't see very much difference - even the blur looks about the same. (Both about 15 feet away)







    Here's two images with my typical (full) processing. I dunno what aperture. Probably less than f/11 tho.

    1/60s, ISO400, 50% Crop - About 35 feet away.









    1/125s, ISO200, 70% Crop - About 75 ~ 85 feet away

    It is and it isn't. I do like the Summilux' rendering qualities ... they're different from the 14-35 ... and I do tend to prefer using prime lenses anyway. And it weighs a pound less.

    Whenever I can't quite make up my mind, I don't act and just keep on working with what I have. Less expensive that way.

    :-) A friend of mine finally caved and bought one too. Now he can't seem to take it off the camera. (Good thing he has two G1s ... he bought mine as a second body when I decided to concentrate on using the E-5 and E-1 exclusively.) He's almost forgotten about this Nikon gear too.

    New Years Eve getting closer ...

    My first thought after taking a couple of shots was just that: now I need one more body. The 7-14 is pretty much going to stay where it is. The question is: Another GH1 for a silly low price or wait for the GH2 and pay twice as much. Choices, choices...

    He had no interest in the video and found he preferred the G1 body over the G2 body (the touchscreen kept getting in his way), so he sold his G2 and bought my G1.

    One of the reasons I like the 11-22 is that it goes from what is my most used ultrawide to very near normal FoV. Lets me carry just it on the one body and not worry about much else a good bit of the time.

    I do some video on occasions, and also feel that the sensor in the GH1 is better than the G1. Since I had the opportunity to buy the GH1 as body only for just a fraction more than the G1, it was an easy choice.

    The 11-22 lived more or less permanently on my E-1 exactly for the reason you mention, and should I buy an E-5, an 11-22/50-200 combo is a very likely. Unfortunately, the 11-22 won't AF on m43 cameras.

    The sensor differences G1-GH1-G2, after a good bit of direct comparison, are so small as to be inconsequential to me. My opinion, of course.

    Autofocus with the 11-22 is supported by all Olympus Pen E-Px bodies and with the Panasonic G2/G10/G2H/GF2 bodies. It's not super fast, but then manual focus with the G1/GH1 bodies and their EVF (or the Pen E-P2/E-PL1 plus EVF) is such a piece of cake I hardly notice the lack of AF support.

    I tend to focus manually a good bit of the time anyway ... My current most common setup on the E-5 is to use MF with Mode-3 for the AEL/AFL button (one-time AF only).

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

    Just testing, from my balcony on the sixth floor, across the canal and down the road with the GH1 and OM Zuiko 500mm f/8 Reflex. The total weight of the combo is 975g and the reach in 35mm terms 1000mm. This lens doesn't feature a tripod mount and is best used handheld, so requires a lot of light. It's also relatively low contrast, so post processing includes increasing contrast (I use curves for that), some sharpening and bumping up the saturation slightly.

    GH1 with OM Zuiko 500mm f/8 Reflex at 1/2000s and ISO800



    Here's a 100% crop for the pixel peepers. No noise reduction except in-camera.

    I stand corrected. One more reason to consider it again then, if only Olympus could come up with a weather sealed m43 body.

    I feel pretty confident that Olympus will do this eventually. When they ship the pro-grade Micro-FourThirds lenses, I imagine. The E-5 and E-1 will do fine for that in the meanwhile.

    I'm a patient person.

    After a few, late hours with the absolutely lovely Panasonic 7-14mm, I see that inside this lens, there are zillions of lovely photos that I didn't know existed. Looking forward to an exciting journey

    Yes, behold my arms of steel and I:



    1960 Linhof Arms Of Steel! (extremely light weight too!)



    Seriously though, no one in their right mind shoots at 400mm (equiv) or longer hand-held and expects anything but the occasional luck-shot - OIC or not! That's a 200mm lens for us M4/3 folk. I was shooting 500mm (1,000mm equiv.) so stabilization is actually impossible without a tripod - no matter the camera system.


    Thanks for the comment too! Very appreciated!

    John, very moody "dancing tree" !
    Dan, lovely "helping hand", that's probably what we are all going to need in 2011
    Leica77, excellent HD !
    Jorgen, I see you are enjoying your 7-14 already

    Absolutely! How does the saying go again: "Give me a place to stand, and a tripod stable enough, and I can photograph the world!" errr, or something like that...

    Why thank you Leica, kind as usual! HNY 2U2! 2011, and I never though I'd see 2000.




    Here's some more images. This time with my new Nikkor AF 85mm F1.4D - and this is my first experience with a lens that renders colors like this! Holy cow! At first I though someone was messing about with the saturation on my monitors or something. It's a very lively and vivid lens! It's kinda like getting a new box of crayons. It's nice getting results like this without having to process for it.





    F/1.4, 1/125s, ISO100, Camera: GH1, Image Digitized: 2011:01:02, 13:38:27








    F/1.4, 1/400s, ISO100, Camera: GH1, Image Digitized: 2011:01:02, 15:48:20








    F/1.4, 1/125s, ISO100, Camera: GH1, Image Digitized: 2011:01:02, 16:05:25
    I missed the focus a little bit on this one - you can see that the buds don't look as perfectly pin-sharp as I saw in the finder. I still like it tho!








    f/1.4, 1/640s, ISO100, Camera: GH1, Image Digitized: 2011:01:02, 15:54:31








    f/1.4,1/200s, ISO100, Camera: GH1, Image Digitized: 2011:01:02, 16:08:20








    f/1.4, 1/400s, ISO100, Camera: GH1, Image Digitized: 2011:01:02, 13:32:56





    The amazing thing to me is that it's doing this in low light. Overcast at around 1pm to 4pm and this time of year at Japan's latitude on the planet the Sun always looks like it's about 2 to 2.5 hours away from total sunset - it never climbs very high in the sky and the days are short. Noon looks about the same as 4pm and 9:30 am.

    Hi Tesselator,
    Wow and Holy Cow! These images are indeed fantastic. I will definitely include the Nikkor AF 85mm F1.4 lens on my shopping list.
