    I feel the IQ is visibly better than the slower zooms, and f2.8 allows to keep ISO down.OK-f2.8 is not a shallow DOF-lens on m4/3 - but this lens is still small and seems to me like quite good at each f-stop and each focal length.
    I believe lens choices get really nice now for m4/3 - the 12-35 and 35-100 zooms, and the 12,25,45,75 mm fast primes-all lovely lenses.

    Hi Tom
    I completely understand where you're coming from. I agree about the IQ being visibly better than the slower zooms . . but I think it's visibly worse than the nice primes you mention. Perhaps I should be grown up and simply shoot the Leica M9 (or M when it comes) the occasions I need AF are really very few and far between, and I'm pretty good at focusing with a rangefinder.

    I certainly do - we were in Venice a few days ago - between on Aqua Alta and the next. we did have a lot of fun . . . but I didn't have my OMD, with or without the 12-35. Perhaps I should have had it!

    all the best

    I dont have enough experience with the primes to have an opinion vs the 12-35zoom. I just didnt see any weak sides of the 12-35 so far.
    However I shot some images with the 25/1.4 and the 75/1.8 over the weekend and have to say specialy the 75/1.8 images look very rich.

    As much as I like Leica M I wouldnt want to give up having at least 1 camera with fast AF and I really like the flexibility of the OMD. The colors and also the DR are really great for such a small camera. Plus it feels good in the hand (I allways have the grip mounted) and its weatherproof.

    Well, no snow here yet - still, it's got cold . . . and the sun's come out!

    A couple from early this morning with the 12-35 . . it really is good.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    HI there
    Magnus - I'm missing those colours too . . . just drips around here . . . and it's cold!

    Bart - I have found it's sparkle. I also found this shot I took with the 12-35 just after I got it. . . . . has something I feel . . although sparkle might not quite be it!

    As they say a bit cheesy! Hope they don't belong to you!

    A great monochrome image in true Leica user tradition Jono! Or even OM tradition!!

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    This one was taken with the estimable and diminutive Olympus 9-18 - again, just found it whilst fishing about in sunnier weather - and converted it to black and white (as one does).

    Nothing like a bit of culling
    This was taken in Crete in September (using the touch-shutter, I wouldn't have dared otherwise). I may have posted the colour version before, but I'm pleased with the black and white conversion

    Hi Dave
    Thanks . . . . I'm going to make an application . . . when I have a minute!

    The feet belong to my middle son - I guess they were't actually quite as dirty as that picture implies!. I don't have an MM anymore however - it had to go back to Solms - I was VERY sad to see it go . . . . . It was a great learning experience for me though - and has rather changed the way I take pictures. Let's face it, monochrome from the OMD doesn't do to bad either!

    Bart - thanks for the kind words. I'm doing the annual christmas card hunt - hence the posting and reworking of a few old shots. . . . . now it's back to work.

    all the best

    With Pana-Leica 45mm



    I wanted to demonstrate the shallow depth of field ability of this lens.
    The Bokeh is exceptionally smooth with this lens. Focus is on the nose, eyes and whiskers with the distance from nose to paws less about one inch on these little Harvest mice.

    Nice one - Raf, is that the Place St. Catherine? It's been a few years, but it looks like the view from the Hotel where we stayed. (Back in the good old days when Sabena was THE choice to bring you across the pond.)

    Indeed, that's the place ! Famous for the fish and lobster restaurants ...
    SABENA is long gone, has been SN Brussels Airlines, now Brussels Airlines, owned by Lufthansa

    But, now you have the Eurostar to take you across the pond

    I do still have an M6 and three lenses, but when finally the M8 appeared I was already invested in Canon DSLRs and didn't find it very compelling. Neither the M9. I thought that what you get for the price isn't worth it. And I'm not even sure that my actual lenses would perform well on a digital M. On the mft cameras, I prefer the two Zeiss Contax G to the 50mm F1.4 and the 90mm F2 and the 35mm F2 is not such a good performer.

    I'm meaning the big Atlantic pond..........by Eurostar? - now that would be quite a ride - how many packets of peanuts would you be allowed? Yes we did have a great meal there, and the Hotel was super too, all confirmed by the fact that we still remember it all, 8 years since. But I digress from m4/3 topics, (shooting then with an LC1.)

    Sorry, I misunderstood your pond We commonly refer to the North Sea when crossing the pond, and Eurostar crosses that one in a tunnel in less than an hour ...

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Got my OM-D and the 12-50mm kit lens on Thursday and had a play with it last night.

    Here are some pics (just a very quick processing - I am sure I could get more out of these with a little work)...


    Clifton Gardens Pool by peterb666, on Flickr

    12mm 1/60s, f/7.1 and ISO1250 (a mistake as I left the camera on auto ISO)


    Clifton Gardens 2_1 by peterb666, on Flickr

    12mm 8 seconds, f/16, ISO200 with a 4-stop (ND16) ND filter. There is a bit of a reflection from the filter on this one by looks of things.


    Clifton Gardens 3 by peterb666, on Flickr

    14mm 30 seconds, f/16 and ISO200 with a 1-stop (ND2) filter.

    Love the camera and lens.

    HI There
    That's a lovely shot - it really is a grand lens isn't it . . . . unfortunately I no longer have it

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    It was a gray morning - here are a few shots with the OMD and the 12-35 . . . I fear I can feel a 35-100 coming on

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    HI There
    Using the OMD as a landscape camera is interesting - the 12-35 is certainly up to the task - right to the corners.
    One of the common criticisms of 43 is the lack of depth of field control It's a double edged sword though - when shooting landscapes it means you can get a substantial depth of field at f5.6, which also means you're using the best of the lens and getting a hand holdable shutter speed. . . . . not to mention that the little package is hardly bigger than a point and shoot!

    Today I took the 75-300 Oly in my jacket pocket (I really can feel the 35-100 coming on!)

    Here are some examples (the church was with the 75-300, the rest with the 12-35):











    all the best

    I really love the third one. People should post their pictures one at a time, so it would be easier to single out the picture one like, just using the like button.

    I like that one best.. but I think that I'd crop the right side out and leave the little branches that goes up to the top edge out.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    HI Annna - thank you, I'm glad you like them.
    I see what you mean about posting pictures one at a time I'll try and behave better in future!

    Like this you mean?


    I can certainly see the logic - any other opinions?

    These shots will make me come back to Micro 4/3 and sell my A77. It's not that I'm not happy with the output I can get from it - It's more of the size of the thing. That was one of the reasons I sold my Canon outfit for a G1 about 4 years ago. The sensors are finally catching up to the quality design of the Panasonic and Olympus lenses. That's not to say I didn't get quite a few keepers with my G1 (or GF1 when I had it pre M9 days) but I feel despite the emergence of industry competitors it still seems Micro 4/3 is really the most mature and complete system.

    Hi There
    That's me - it makes a great companion to the M, doing the macro, telephoto and AF business.
    I think the only valid criticism I have is the CAF, which isn't good, but the single shot AF is so splendid that it really doesn't matter that much. IQ is better than a 43 sensor ought to be, and the number of good lenses is great.

    an OMD with a 12-35 and 35-100 (the classic combination) weighs about as much as the SonyZeiss 24-70, and for most purposes the quality is stellar.

    HOORAY!

    Yeah I still have my G1 and my Panasonic 14-45 so it really makes sense to go back to Micro 4/3. I've tried to hold off for Sony and they finally made the body I always wanted (NEX-6) but their dedication to native lenses leaves me wanting in both A and E mount. Mind you the A mount lenses are very good but very large. Well once the A77 kit goes I will see. I may just put the money to a Leica MM.

    I think the crucial difference is that Sony are definitely trying to sell CAMERAS and LENSES. . . . Whereas Olympus at least are trying to sell a SYSTEM. . . and it shows.

    Individually the Sony stuff is all great (I also loved those big A mount lenses). But when you use the Panasonic 12-35 and see how few compromises you are making!

    Here is a shot from this morning with the 35-100:


    I sold my A77, 135 f1.8, 70-300 G to finance a Leica 135 f3.4 APO, and the Panasonic 35-100. Not so much volume, but I'm not regretting the decision.


    all the best

    The 12-35 and 35-100 are my next lenses for m43

    Not sure what I want to trade for that, but sure I will get those lenses
