    Ah, your chickens. Always good IMO. I came across one of your wonderful ones from our E10 days. Still lovely to look at.

    Great images everyone - especially that last one teera_ash!

    my grip arrived today - more later.

    I'm feeling a bit like this:

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Another camera means another morning at the farmer's market. I hadn't really used the kit lens yet so I only took that lens. The macro capability is quite nice although moving the lens from regular to macro mode and back really is a two handed operation and is hard to do trying to hold the camera in any sort of shooting position.





















    A few that I try and take each time













    Happy Mother's Day

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Very nice shots Terry. I have to admit I really like Oly jpegs even though I shoot raw and have only shot Panny m4/3 so far.

    Just really good choices for testing but lovely on their own too.

    We have RAW support in LR. So only shooting RAW. I shot a little bit differently. I set the in camera JPEG settings to -2 contrast, - 2 saturation and muted jpegs to get a really neutral rendering and metering and histogram. Then I turned on the highlight/shadow set the clipping warning to 245. When shooting I used EV to keep myself just below clipping on the highlights. Worked pretty well. Need to be careful with reds. I have some strawberries in fairly harsh light that didn't come out so well.

    Ah, okay. Well, good to know and obviously colors are terrific with processing in LR. Thanks for the notes on your technique. And reds are tough for so many cameras, aren't they.

    Excellent Terry - I especially love the flower shots at the start.
    I agree that the macro mode is a two hand operation to switch on - but it's just a quick pull to switch off - easy with one hand I reckon..

    Love the macro shots, very nice, I like how all of you are showing how capable the camera is and for whatever reason, I could not help myself and had to mess with my morning market shots. Having a lot of fun with this OM-D

    Wow, these are amazing shots!

    I'm new on the forum, came here by coincidence. Just got my OMD two days ago, the silver/black body with kit lens 12/50, with the panasonic 25 1.4 and the Olympus 45 1.8 lenses. I am still in my learning stage, but the pictures I've got so far are absolutely superb! And some photo's I've seen in this tread amaze me even more. They assure me I've spent my hard earned money very well !!!

    To Jonoslack: the 100/300 Pana looks very good! I was hesitating for a longer range lens between the Olympus and the Panasonic, so I decided to wait a while and begin to shoot with the lenses I have.
    Anyway: Great shots !!

    Greetz,

    Yeah, me too !! Would it be any good when the sun goes down, is it usable without a tripod when it is cloudy weather?

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Here is an another image, somewhat similar to the caravan image I posted earlier (page 2 post 92) and the building (page 1 post 2):



    Above: A sculpture with overcast sky in the background. Taken at a distance (25-30meters or so, E-M5 and Zuiko 45/1.8 stopped down).

    I'm posting these in this thread not to demonstrate lenses or compositions but as examples of how the features helps with getting the images in an efficient way. You can tell I'm coming from Panasonic... and very happy with the UniWB exposure method and the camera set to blinking highlights/shadows. The image is an example of getting the exposure in a tricky situation, one shot only, where I didn't want to throw the black parts into a total nothing but still keep the golden parts without blowing them.

    The only problem is one of the firmware bugs which in this case make the blinking stop after having enlarged the view for focusing. The workaround is easy enough though. Disregarding the bug the camera is as made for this method.

    HI There - I got some shots at 300mm at 1/15th second . . hand held, so the answer is YES.

    Greetz,

    Well, waiting a bit is a good plan - I got my 100-300 from ebay in a slightly inebriated 2 minutes - it was around half the price of the Olympus - I also got it because my wife was interested in birds in the garden, and she has a G1x (and of course needs the IS).

    If it were just for me, and money wasn't an object I think I would have got the Olympus for the slightly wider wide end.

    All the best

    HI Bart
    Yes - I've tried it - still considering my position with it, but it certainly works, and, like the camera, it looks better in real life than in pictures.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    This one is for Jonoslack: you seem to have both 12-50 and 14-150. I currently have the latter, but the former intrigues me for the macro capability, and despite overall negative reviews you can read on the web, the pictures coming out of it seem very good. How do the 2 zooms compare? Would you recommend swapping one for the other as a general purpose walk around lens?

    Thanks
    Simone

    Manual focusing in general works okay on a tripod for macro, but I find it pretty disturbing when you're trying to get the composition right and it keeps zooming in and out.

    I guess that in the end I decided that I wasn't really going to use either camera for manual focus lenses - that's what the M9 is for.

    Two things spring to mind.
    1. Focus peaking is the best
    2. the stabilisation on the OMD would be wonderful.

    A draw perhaps!

    all the best
    Thanks for the reply Jono.

    I decided to buy an OMD and agree with you. The M9 is for the manual focus lenses. While focus peaking allows me to use them on a Nex pretty easily I didn't much enjoy using them on this camera.

    I do however like the kit lens and I have some other m43 lenses which work well on it.

    The camera will go to my partner for her use, I think I like using a rangefinder too much to really want to use something else but it was important for me to get her a camera which I also like using as on occasions I will no doubt be using it.

    regards

    Just saw this bit about the new Panny X lenses to be announced on May 21. Hopefully, they will perform well in AF arena as I am keen to test them for my dance stuff.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Dragos - lovely
    Sorry - I've been a bit pre-occupied over the last week . . . but the OMD is always in my bag.

    Here are a couple of shots from today:


    with the 25 f1.4 panaleica (returning the compliment)


    12-50 kit lens in macro mode


    12-50 kit lens in macro mode


    Leica R 28-90 at 70mm

    Guy - if you have some R lenses, they're actually rather gorgeous on the OMD

    Here it is with both grips and the Leica R 180 f2.8 APO

    The only R lens I have has been converted to a Nikon mount (100 2.8 Macro) but I am interested in getting some more to try.

    Is there a good site to read about the R lenses? I'm not looking for the rarest or most collectable, but rather those which might be the most useful to own. Obviously the 180 2.8 APO looks superb.

    I realize that without describing what I want to do with them more specifically, this is a bit of a weak question. My thinking is that I rarely use longer than a 50mm on the M9 so I guess the R lenses would need to be longer than 50mm as otherwise I'll stay with the M.

    I realize that without describing what I want to do with them more specifically, this is a bit of a weak question. My thinking is that I rarely use longer than a 50mm on the M9 so I guess the R lenses would need to be longer than 50mm as otherwise I'll stay with the M.
    Well you could just get a Nikon/M43 adapter and still use it.

    Thank you Bart . . . Simone I'm sorry, I missed this until Bart pointed it out.

    The 14-150 is much more flexible, and also has a much longer focal length - they both show the inevitable compromise of wide range zooms, but they're both fine.

    the macro, weather sealing and wider angle of the 12-50 are great - the longer focal length and wider range of the 14-150 are as well.

    I don't think I'd recommend swapping them, as it'll cost you a fair bit - it might be cheaper to buy a macro lens (if that's what your missing).

    Wide range zooms nearly always get bad reviews, I like them, but you certainly need to be aware of potential limitations.

    Keep what you've got (if I were you!).

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    My (black) OM-D has arrived, and I'm testing and adjusting setting ...
    I tried some of my "more difficult" lenses with it, longer lenses with which I seldom shot satisfying results on the Panasonic bodies ...

    Here's some results on the OM-D

    OM-D with Nikkor 180/2.8 ED








    With Leica Hektor 135/4




    I'm quite impressed with the IBIS on this camera !

    Thanks for your reply Jono.
    In fact, that's what I'll probably do. The 14-150 performs very well considering its range - much better in my opinion than my Pentax-Tamron 18-250.
    You're probably right that a dedicated macro lens would be better.

    Cheers

    Getting ready for the M9M, and brushing up my digital B&W processing, using the Olympus OM-D. A cat seem to be in order:

    thanks, Easyki ! I'm using cheap adapters from Ebay, the cheapest I can find. I once bought expensive ones from Fotodiox (the pro-stuff with a shift mechanism and a tripod collar) and they were no good at all !

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I'm finally selling all my digital kit except for my m43rds stuff and the plan is to have only one digital system and one film system (Hasselblad).

    I did a tour of the camera shops yesterday and after testing a lot of different cameras I came away with no strong preference for anything from either Nikon, Canon or Fuji. I did try a OMD and my initial thoughts were not entirely positive. But thinking about it afterwards I do concede that for weight/size factor it is pretty much unbeatable.

    What would swing it for me as far as the OMD is concerned is if anyone can post some full size jpgs or links to them, of low light shots so I can see what noise levels and resolution is like at iso 1600. Does anyone have anything they can post?
