    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    First of all I would like to say, that you all just post so many Sharp and wonderfull Pictures here.
    But would like to bother with a question:
    I presume that iso 3200 is the highest level for a good looking OMD Picture right?, or?
    second: the oly 12-60 2.8-4.0 4/3 is still highly recommended, even compared to the 12-40, or..................?

    From my recent adventures with the EM1, I would say ISO 6400 is somewhat usable, do not enlarge too much or crop in.

    Obviously looking at a price point, 12-60 is a much more economical solution compared to the new 12-40, but you get what you pay for. The 12-40 is 1 stop faster at the tele end which not only benefits low light, but also with defocused backgrounds and narrow depth of field.

    That being said, if you have the E-M1 OMD, the 12-40mm pro lens is a perfect match for this body, and the focus speeds and tracking is really impressive.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I went on a 'Once in lifetime' safari with just my EM-5 and the cheap 14-150.
    I've gone off 'gear' since retiring, wanted to travel very light, and I didn't want to make the obvious text book animal close-ups using long lenses.

    This was taken at 45mm.

    Ian, that is quite a wonderful photograph. Thank you for sharing - I don't see any limitation with your chosen kit here.

    Kind regards

    Thank you Brian.

    Regarding sharing images; this is the first forum I've come across that makes me feel I would like to do so.
    I'm also rather comforted by Jack's 'On making images' article, as although I'm confident with my ability to capture a situation with the camera, I'm not at all confident with grasping computer skills (I blame it on my age ) BTW what approx. size of images should I be posting here?

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Yes, this is a bit of an oasis to me too Ian, generally gifted photographers being friendly and civil :-)

    Personally, I go for 1200 pixels widest, 1024 tallest although there are no rules I'm aware of. Your choice above works fine for me.

    Kind regards

    Brian

    Okay ....... 1200 pixels wide & a random 300 KB- here goes:

    I think I will have to find and revive the 'Fun with the Fuji S5Pro' thread soon.

    nice portraits Maggie O, somehow the black and whites have this striking clarity and detail to it.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    I wouldn't mind a 25mm f1.4 summilux myself, if I did not get the EM1 with the 12-40 kit lens. I find myself really enjoying the 12-40mm range, and the focus tracking and speed is really quite impressive.

    I am thinking of getting a 75mm f1.8 in the not too distant future as it is a lens that is not covered by the 12-40 range, just waiting to see if there are any second hand deals or sales coming up.

    impressively close up of your cat Maggie O! The focus engine on the olympus really does it's job well especially when it comes to eye tracking

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    You're both too kind! I quite like the idea of paying my 'actors'.... would certainly improve the hit rate

    And I'm not that patient. Few minutes at most, then move on if nothing is happening, and I'll return later to try again.

    I didn't wait at all for this (Leica M also from today):


    All the best

    Continuing my obsession with not producing encyclopaedia style close-ups of safari animals using long lenses, this was as far away as I could get (actually that's not true - the plane was coming into land!).
