    Fun with R lenses on the OMD

    Well, my novoflex adapter arrived today, so I've been fiddling. Here's a thread to play on!

    The EVF seems to allow decent focusing, and with the grip the camera handles really well.

    This is what it looks like with the Leica R 180 elmarit APO and the grip



    Taken with the Leica MM and the 75 F2 (well, it would be, wouldn't it!).

    The IS is a real bonus - here is a shot taken with the combo - hand held and manual focused:


    so 180mm (360 equiv) ISO 5000, 1/100th


    this is 1/320th at ISO 200

    all at f2.8

    Just this guy you know

    Absolutely Robert - it's a complete knockout. excellent (as is the camera, I'm loving it) - you can tell that the portrait is full of affection (at least, I hope you can )

    [email protected] it - you like the grip then ?

    Gorgeous shot of the OMD and the 180, I can imagine you really like to have 'grip' with that combo.
    Hope to see more ROMD pictures ...

    Btw - who is that sad looking dog ? Can't be Caspar !

    Kind regards.

    Lovely shots, Jono. The lens looks great on that camera (or the other way around ).

    Beautiful shot Jono, would be nice to see the MM taken with the E-M5 + 45mm f1.8 at ISO 3200 in B&W

    How does manual focusing with the EVF compare to focus peaking with the Nex7?

    Thanks

    Brian

    Re: Fun with R lenses on the OMD

    böhhhh i dont have an OMD, just my infamous E-P3. But my Summilux 25 f1.4 and my 45 f1.8 work very very well. Jono the Leica Apo would be a perfect match for my E-5 as well !
    Am i now outdated ??? Should i go out of business ?? No OMD ....
