    E-M1/M5 with Lumix 7-14mm Test

    The 7-14 was designed to work with Pany cams, not Oly. No blobs on my G2's, G2's, Gh2's or G5's over a span of four years. Notwithstanding supposed adaptability across the standard comments about the 7-14 being an inferior lens when used on Oly cams seem somewhat out of place. If users are...

    Kauai: The Garden Isle...

    Those shots say a lot about your love for the islands. They also show off a lens that everybody thinks is garbage. I use the 14-42 a lot of the time. I have two of them. Aside from a difficult zoom function in video (it really sticks) the lens works well enough. I manage output in LR5 where I...

    Micro Four Thirds might "vanish" by 2018?

    The entire industry is due for a consolidative shagging, from Sony on down. We are just starting to get a sense of it. Sonymakes most of its money selling insurance for crying out loud. What influence do you think their compact camera afficionados have at board meetings and AGM's?

    OT - *Sharp* MFT WA Lens for Landscapes?

    I guess I should have read between the lines when you said you wanted edge to edge sharpness. I should have added that you needed your lens to be able to use filters. The 7-14 flares, ghosts and burps purple on Oly's. I like a lens that is sharp. But, even more than that, I am after data...

    I've had two G1's and used 7-14's on both of them. In good light they will never let you down. Just remember to shoot right, keep yer ISO low, and take a few exposures (I know you will). The rest is between God and your magic hands. Bokeh Shot on a G1 with 14-45. Lots of opportunity to...

    Further tweaking my kit: Panasonic 35-100mm

    I tested my new 45-150 hard and sold it immediately. Far too much corrective work on it req'd in LR, and the specs just kept coming up short on it. I have been spoiled by much better lenses in the past, long ones, from 90 on up by Zeiss, the Contax series, and the Oly SWD Pro 150 2.0. You...

    IQ & Gear Obsession - Do you actually use the camera?

    7-14 Another Day in NYC

    I found that there was a lot of chromatic aberration with my 7-14..... actually preferred the 43rds version, quite the brute though. I suspect this lens would be better on a more modern sensor than on the G2 I used it on.

    DMC-G5 / GH2 choosen #1 & #2 cameras!

    I've had two GH2's and loved them both. Yes, flaws, but a major step forward for M43 in every respect. G5 as well. Watch this space and what Panny is up to. I hope OLY can get the kinks out of the OMD, especially in the menu department.
