    true true!! forgot about the bounce flash, although there is also benefits of natural light sometimes.

    I have been testing the close focus with the panny 8mm and it seems pretty much spot on every time. When you say focusing is bad, are we talking close focusing (under 1m) or infinite focusing?

    I don't usually use fish-eye lenses for doing close ups ... :-)
    I meant focusing in the average middle to far range. A fish-eye includes so much that most AF systems have trouble discriminating on what to pick as a focus point.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    hmm, will do more tests today randomly firing at anything I can find. Maybe the E-M1 focus engine may be improved since you tested a AF fish.

    Also the Panny 8mm does not have the grab ring to switch between AF and MF since it is Panasonic, and not Olympus. If it existed, it would allow one to preset infinite focus setting when set into manual focus, and hence no reduce the risk of AF hunting for scenes which are clearly beyond the 1m focus distance.

    Many thanks Godfrey for your input

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    So, I had fun with an EM-1 rental this weekend at Yosemite, and I thought I would share some shots. The first are some "trophy" shots. I normally avoid the standard places, but these were interesting to me as they were different lighting. The Valley View shot had the hills being lit by sunset behind us filtering through the clouds and painting everything red. Normally this time of year, only El Capitan and the hills on the left would be lit, so I found this unusual. The second shot, down the Merced River towards where Yosemite Falls would be if there was any water was also interesting because of the different light. This was early morning, and the light was filtered through clouds, so it softened everything up in an interesting way.

    Enjoy,
    Doug

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    These are from the base of BridalVeil falls. In spring runoff and summer, you would get nowhere near this area, so I found it interesting to explore when it was actually safe to do so. The first is with the Panny 20. The second is a two shot vertical pano (each shot horizontally framed) with the Oly 45. I really liked the character of the rock in the center top.

    Enjoy,
    Doug

    And these three were about playing with the ice and reflections (and taking some liberties with the perspective ).

    Dragon King Showing His Stuff. OMD EM1 with the Sigma 18-35 (Nikon mount) on a Kipon adapter. Manual focus, metering (thanks for the focus-peaking, Olympus) stopping down after focus.

    Arhat and Bowl. Same gear as above. Sigma lens on full manual.


    Lotus and Pads. Ditto. Enjoyed the lens. The Kipon adapter seems to do the job. I'm sure on a D7100 with autofocus and electronic connection this lens will shine.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    nice pics FlypenFly. I too have the OM 50mm f3.5 which is a lovely lens. I also have the 12-40 2.8 pro lens that came with the E-M1. For me I found the half life size from the 50mm f3.5 not substantially better than the 12-40mm, so I never really used it on my E-M1 , since I get super fast AF with the 12-40mm and get no AF with the 50mm 3.5

    Took a walk in a nice quiet valley below the highway leading up to Jerusalem. It is getting very crowded. A bike path, a 9-11 memorial, organic farms, a railway that tunnels through hills and leaps above the valley, and above it all a giant multistory necropolis...













    OM-D E-M1 with Zuiko 11-22. AF working fast and reliably.

    I have the 75-300 II now since 4 months and I am NOT IMPRESSED by its performance around the long tele end. Even if stopped down this performance does not really improve. The results always look a bit unsharp. First I thought it is out of focus, but using MF and carefully focusing does not improve anything. I would say till around 200 it is ok, but then why do I have this lens - actually to shoot it more in the range from 200 - 300!

    So maybe this lens is a bad copy, I don't know, definitely it will have to go. Not sure if I should give the Panasonic 100-300 a try.

    nice!

    Haven't forgotten my E-M1 at all. I use it quite a lot ... lately, to take a lot of photos of my A7 kit. ]'-)

    Really, though, it's a terrific camera in its own right and I have been using it steadily while I've been exploring and learning the A7 and Leica R lenses. The two systems are so different, and so good, that they're both staying in my kit.

    Hi There
    Well, it's been a long trek, but I'm back!
    Lots of great pictures here - and I'm adding a few average ones just to prove that point!

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    I recently acquired an E-M1 to supplement my great, but heavy Canon kit. I was in Zurich for business, a case where I would never carry my Canon stuff, but the Oly is small and light enough fit inside by backpack.

    No tripod here, only handheld, the IBIS works wonder in such cases. Lens was a mix of Oly 12-40 f/2.8 and Oly 17 f/1.8
