    Scott, This is an amazing image. You did a great job on this one.
    We really got a bargain with this lens, didn't we?

    Hi Cindy,

    Thanks, it is an amazing lens. I need to play with it more often, along with the G1 in general. I like them both more and more...

    Thanks, Terry, for the tutorial on uploading and positioning photographs to this forum. I played around with it, and eventually got that second box to appear. Once that happened, I was able to make it work, and I have successfully posted additional photographs in post #11 of the "Black and White pics" thread at http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7517 I was even able to position each photo below the supporting commentary. Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, Phil, that I hadn't even considered embedding by loading the photos here. I have never done that--link from my web gallery. Glad Terry got it sorted out for you. I'll check out your b & ws.

    Thanks, Diane, for your help. With some experimentation, I was able to figure it out -- I am used to pbase, which for me, anyway, is a bit easier for a newcomer to grasp. I am indebted to you and Terry for your kindness in helping me work things out. Things should go a bit easier from now on.

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    1. Union Square, New York City. In this case, I am using the long focal length to compress distance and juxtapose subjects that are city blocks apart.

    Phil, this photo convinced me to buy this lens. Very interesting the way you explain your view on things, on looking. I was waiting for this thread about this lens too.
    We are going to Canada soon and I want to travel light. Just the kitlens, the 45-200, the Oly 9-18 and may be 35mm Olympus macro for the small things.
    I also like to work with a lot of DOF to sort o flatten the distances in between.
    Lik this one for example.




    And Diana, I really like your rainy visitor.

    Hi I noticed earlier in this thread that someone mentioned that they used there G1 and 45/200 at 800 in EZ mode, can someone please explain what this is, I am guessing it is a digital zoom feature, but stand to be corrected

    Hi Phil:

    According to the manual, pg 48, this is an in-camera crop. This mode uses 3.1 mp from the center of the image circle to produce more of a telephoto effect.

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    I just got back from a two week trip to Italy where I used both the 14-45 and 45-200 on my G1. The 14-45 performed great, the 45-200 was, well, OK I guess. I'm seeing some fairly noticeable cormer shading at most focal lengths, and it's quite severe past 150 mm. I know it can be corrected in post, but I'm wondering if this is normal, or if I might have a bad copy?

    I've attached some examples. All were taken at 200 mm and F6.3. No croping, just resized and some USM for posting. The first is uncorrect; the second has had some vignetting correction applied in Silkypix.

    regards
    Santo

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    Hi,

    during my traditional sunday morning walk, I concentrated on the 45-200mm, a lens I do not use enough.

    Here's two close-up shots of an insect, thanks to the 200mm focal length, I could keep a sufficient distance not to disturb the animal.





    Both @ 200mm f5.6 iso100

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    Hi,

    I continue to appreciate the 45-200mm as a close-up lens that allows you to keep distance to the subject, and to have shallow DOF :


    F5.6 iso100


    f5.6 iso400

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    A couple i took today. This lens is really softer than the 14-45, and seems more prone to unfocus through movement more than anything else.

    Hi all,

    I am the potential owner of a GH1. Moving to a lighter camera from a much heavier Nikon. With my Nikon telephoto lenses, I had very good luck with close-ups using the Cannon 500D two element close-up lens. Has anyone tried such a lens on the 45-200mm lens?

    I've tried the 250D which is a bit more magnification. Works fine. It has just been a wee bit windy where I live to get good shots! The lens is 52mm which may be the same as your Canon. I have one close up that is 52 and the other is larger.

    Remember the FL. At 200 it would be like handholding a 400mm (FOV/35mm) . I have trouble with my Canon 70-200 f/4 LOL. I'm actually pretty amazed how well the IS works for the FL. I do think its not as sharp at the long end but its still a really good value and with good technique and good processing, very good photos result.

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    Actually I have a 72mm Canon 500D for the Nikon 18-200mm lens, and a leftover 77mm 500D from the 300mm f/4 tele I just sold. I would need to get a 52mm for the 45-200 and/or a 62mm one for the 14-140mm lens. Either would be cheaper than buying a macro lens. What are your thoughts on how the Canon diopter lens would work on the 14-140?

    My photo's in the 14-45mm kit lens thread were well received (many thanks for that) so let's not forget the 45-200mm which is pretty capable. I think it is easy to forget that you may be shooting with an effective focal length of 400mm hand held !

    1. Sedge warbler (Acrocephalus schoenobaenus)

    Listen to this strident little bird sing here http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/bird...bler/index.asp

    200mm f/6.3 1/400s iso200 hand held.




    2. Sanderling

    151mm f/9 1/400s iso200

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    Tripper, I really enjoyed your boat photos. Just lovely. I listened to the warbler (I love warblers)--no wonder he has his mouth open LOL. Do you live near the coast?? We so rarely would find shots like you have posted on our eastern coast--so much is 'condo-ized' or just big power boats. You really have to search for anything similar so I'm really enjoying them.

    Raf--as usual--lovely, esp. the second.

    My thanks to Raf and Diane for your kind words.

    Diane, no I live in the English Midlands about as far from the coast as you can get which ever direction you travel ! Hence my fascination with photographing boats, I rarely see them. Recent pictures were all taken when we were taking a break and staying on the coast of Norfolk. I got lucky with the warbler, I saw it a couple of times in the same place while walking my dogs thru the reed beds near the coast so guessing it had a nearby nest I returned with my G1 and waited....... not for too long. Like the Robin it is a 'brave' little bird and allowed me to get very close. Like yourself I rarely shoot birds. . . too difficult so this was a bonus.

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    Saw some really nice pics in this tread with this lens. Love the first birdphotograph of Tripper. And it's very good for flowers too, Raf!

    I did hestitate a lot about this lens, but I finally bought it in Toronto.
    I needed a stabilised longer reach. I did make some decent pictures of the wedding of my niece on Wolf island, which I will not show without there permission.
    The first two are from Wolf island and the other two from today.
    Thanks for looking, Michiel

    Till 150mm it is quiet good. It is not as sparkling as the kitlens but you have more stabilised reach and that is important to me.

    Beautiful images Rafael. I just bought one and have not used it much. It would help my learning curve if you could please show the tech data.

    Were they handheld or on tripod, illumination, focal length, diaphragm, shutter speed, ISO, Raw or Jpeg?, AF and mode or MF, stabilization mode

    Thanks in advance,
    Peter

    Hallo Peter,

    no secret in there

    #1 : 200mm iso100 1/800 f5.6 handheld (outside shot)
    #2 : 136mm iso320 1/200 f5.1 on tripod (shot inside a greenhouse, quite dark there)
    #3 : 78mm iso100 1/2000 f6.3 handheld (outside, backlight)

    All shot in RAW, converted and worked up with Silkypix. Manual focus. OIS on.

    My personal guideline for shooting with this lens handheld, is to use a shutter speed faster than 1/x where x= focal length. Otherwise, you are at risk for blurry images !

    Till 150mm it is quiet good. It is not as sparkling as the kitlens but you have more stabilised reach and that is important to me.

    No, the images posted here look good which was kind of a surprise for me. But a welcome surprise!

    This was taken on my G1 and the lens is much easier handled on the G1 than my E-P1

    I also like the controls on the G1 better than the EP-1, but having said that, you have to have both cameras if you are a micro 4/3 fan

    G1, F8, handleld 1/125s, ISO 200

    Re: Panasonic G1 45-200mm

    Well, I started this thread and it seems to run and run. I eventually sold my Olympus ZD 50-200mm f2.8 and bought the Panasonic 45-200mm It's no way as good as the ZD but it autofocuses quickly and is half the size and weight. It also cost less than half the price I got fot the 50-200mm. I'm reasonably happy with the results from it. Here is a typical shot at 200mm.



    The big difference is that with the 50-200mm I could happily operate at full aperture and blur the background.

    The Village of Eden, Wisconsin held their annual Fireman's parade today. I used the G1 with the 45-200mm. It did a better job than my D700 did last year!
