    Best "OM" system 'zoom' lenses

    Wow your 75-150mm is a way better copy than mine! Or perhaps I've been using it wrong.. :o

    Zuiko OM 24mm f2.8 vs Lumix 25mm f1.4

    I have used the 75-150mm and it is pretty terrible on digital at least. Perhaps film is more forgiving.

    Sweet price, thanks for sharing. I also picked one up..I see the lens go for 425-500 US used here..don't think I've ever seen it less than 600$ in Canada (or around the same from B&H after shipping and currency conversion).

    Whoa what happened to my 7.5mm fisheye?! Out of alignment?

    Problem solved! Turns out the rearmost element seems to have unscrewed itself..maybe through vibration or shoddy manufacturing.

    Whoa what happened to my 7.5mm fisheye?! Out of alignment?

    Yeah when the lens is only around 300$, it only makes sense to ship it and repair it if the cost is low. Kinda silly really. I emailed them 2 days ago and no word back yet. Hoping I won't have to call to follow up. And since its out of warranty anyways, I might see if there's any local lens...

    So I took my rokinon 7.5mm lens out for the first time after a few months and noticed that it looked off..while before I could crank the focus to infinity and shoot without any problems, it's now out of alignment or something. It looks to be focusing past infinity. All at f8: focus...

    You will get more attention but the commission fees will likely make it not worthwhile.. Though for the sake of my wallet, it may be better if it goes over there instead of a price drop. :o Being in the same city its already way too tempting..

    Need opinions on 85mm from owners

    If you can find a SMC super takumar 85mm 1.8, I don't think you can do much better than that IQ or build quality/feel wise. Definitely one of my favs. That said, the market prices seem rather crazy at 300-450ish. I paid 150 for mine and it seemed like a steal.

    Lumia 1020 vs GX1

    Cool! The Nokia is definitely on my shortlist for my next phone (though it sounds like the HTC One and the iphone 5S are decent competition , only the 1020 seems basically built around the camera!).

    Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 discontinued!!

    I'm sure it'll AF better and quieter. But I'm doubting you'll see any IQ or speed improvement. Or if it does, it'll be larger I'm sure (*cough 17mm 1.8 & 25mm 1.4). I'm content with my current 20mm. I'm sure it'll still be the best bang for your buck/size-performance ratio in the m43 system...

    Woman stabbed to death in Los Angeles after photographing panhandlers

    It's amazing that people are so quick to blame the victim. I don't see why one should justify the stabbing of a person in this sort of situation when it really didn't need to go down like this. From the details from the earlier link, it doesn't seem wise to swear at that panhandler. But it...

    Infrared OMD stock vs EPL3 modified

    The modified shot is sharper/more detailed. Presumably from having a short exposure time as opposed to using an add-on filter (without looking up the EXIF I would guess a few seconds). Some day I'll get around to getting my old G1 modded!
