    Well there are so many lenses to chose from in the 43 world.
    Hmm. You know, I never think of my lenses as an "arsenal" or anything to do with weapons. They're my eyes, not my guns. :-)

    I've heard a lot of bipolar commentary on the Summilux-DG 15mm, same as for the M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8. From what I've seen in the past, that usually means its pretty good. I've intended to get one or the other of them for a bit, but which one I can't make up my mind on. There's also the M.Zuiko 12mm f/2 (now why doesn't Olympus make that one in black finish? silly...). Right now I have the little Panasonic 14mm in this focal length range and while it's pretty good, it's not up to the quality of any of the above three, really.

    Ah well. I'm playing with pinholes more than lenses just at the moment. When I stack my FourThirds mount Skink pinhole on the EX-25, onto a FT->mFT adapter, it becomes a telephoto pinhole (about 65mm) on the E-M1 ... :-)

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    A couple of pinholes as example:


    Olympus E-M1 + Skink Pinhole (40mm in FourThirds mount)
    ISO 6400 @ 5 seconds




    Olympus E-M1 + EX-25 + Skink Pinhole (40mm in FourThirds mount)
    ISO 6400 @ 5 seconds

    I think that calculates out to about f/127 or so.

    enjoy!

    Clearly lenses are our eyes and the light is gunning on them to put it differently..

    I've heard a lot of bipolar commentary on the Summilux-DG 15mm, same as for the M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8. From what I've seen in the past, that usually means its pretty good.

    I can't say for the Oly 17. It is regarded as one of their weaker lenses, but the PL 15 I had shortly. I was offered a new for exchange but thanked no thankyou. Maybe a bad copy, but I simply found the edges and corners never became sharp regardless aperture. I did neither come along with the presence of CA and flare. I use my 12-40 at 17 mm for the eqv. 35mm view if needed.

    The Oly 12 I have is the 3rd copy. The first 2 was faulty. But this one I have today is awesome.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    A very inexpensive Sigma 600mm f/8 mirror tele (Nikon AI-S mount) arrived yesterday, so I threw it on the E-M1 for a few test snaps. It's in nice shape and handles well, but of course any 1200mm FoV equivalent lens should be on a tripod for best results.

    That said, I think it does pretty nicely:








    All were transferred as JPEGs to the iPad and processed/uploaded from there.

    Not bad for $90!

    That's quite impressive. The 75 is a hell of a lens. Nice shot too!

    Not easily findable, and ridiculously overpriced when you do. A black version of the lens should be a standard selling edition, to match the black bodied cameras. Dumb to do otherwise, IMO.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    Yes... When I bought my EM1 and the first 3-4 lenses last Autumn, I asked for a black 12mm.
    Nope, that's a special and ultra-limited and sold out. I was forced to decorate my black camera with a silver version, making my complete look patched and ridiculous.
    Now Oly tries again...

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    While I realize that a camera and a lens are just tools, I have to admit that silver lenses on a completely black camera body (like my E-M5) look just silly. I don't really see the point in silver oly lenses either. Black only would be a much better choice since even silver camera bodies have usually lots of matching black. My only silver ΅4/3 lens is the 45 mm f/1.8.

    My first attempts with the EM1 underwater:

    This is freshwater, snorchling testdrive without flash.
    I will receive my flashes soon so this will be another step.

    HI,
    after a long debae with myself I decided for Nauticam housing with Panasonic 8mm FE under a FIS Dome. I was also considering the Aquatica housing which seems slightly more solid, but the Nauticam seems ergonomically better for my hands.
    I also plan to use the 9-18 and 12-40 under a 170II ZEN DOME.

    Who ever is calling the shots at the marketing dept. at Olympus does not seem to realize that anyone who paid $1250 for a black copy of the 12mm f/2.0 is going to feel seriously played when the black version of the same lens goes on sale at the $799 normal price. Olympus is not endearing themselves to the customer with this kind of behavior.

    Same thing happens with most products that were initially released as "limited edition" and later instantiated as a standard release when the demand for them proved they were viable in the marketplace. It has nothing to do with Olympus specifically.

    People who pay premiums like that for limited edition products should expect it. They're getting what they paid for: exclusivity while the item was limited edition. A friend in the restaurant business once told me that exclusivity was one of the guaranteed best ways to make better profit—it costs very little to provide, everyone wants it, and few who pay the premium really balk about it. Exclusivity is always transitory, you pay the premium for the short term joy of being "one of the few" ...

    I just won't pay that exclusivity premium for a lens. I pay it for good service, a fine dining experience, etc.

    Thank you Godfrey...

    I think you have a great collection of similar *art*.

    I was taken just under the walk bridge from the restaurant into one of the exhibitions in the British Museum London.
    The green background with shadows of people walking over is made of greenish acrylic or glass.

    Another one in which I love the tones and feel ... The cropping does seem just a hair tight at the top of the frame.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus E-M1

    Thank you Godfrey.

    The image is cropped (which I am not too fond/proud of. The format is off) due to exclusion of disturbing surroundings. The top is however not cropped. I was aiming the lens pretty off. Still I like it too

    Xochimilco, DF, MX

    Xochimilco is an old canal district in Mexico City. All that is left over from the Aztec days of lakes and islands in the basin. A party scene on weekends, left to the tourists on weekdays...
