    The need to move forward with M43

    What do you mean by "quality"? If all you're trying to achieve with your photography is to get a (so called) technically "proficient" shot ie one that is "sharp" then all I can say is that there's more to an image than sharpness and sharpness is something that, no matter how good a lens you...

    The need to move forward with M43

    I dread to imagine how many folk have dismissed a lens or invested in what they thought was a "better lens" based on the images taken without a thought for the light quality at the time those images were taken. I've recently invested in a Samyang 7.5mm and many of the images from it are crap...

    The need to move forward with M43

    You mention "justify cost" so my answer may ramble a bit as I'm in a similar situation. Im a 71 yr old on flat rate basic pension without superann so I count every penny/cent. Also you say "wanting for image quality." If your thing is to enlarge to 100% you will always "want". Nothing that I've...

    When I first came to Oz we drove up to Maryborough to see if we'd like to settle there and stayed in a Motel overnight.

    The Olympus M. Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 vs Panasonic 25mm f/1.7

    I've had two Olly 17mm and both were softer then my 12-40. The panny 25mm otoh is excellent and I love it's rendering. The 12-40 has made the Olly redundant but I would never part with the panny and the price is right............plastic fantastic. Even if you go for the 17mm you may as well hang...

    Stacking the MC-20 and MC-14, it works!!!

    Fully agree. Add more glass (no matter how good) and you are diminishing the benefit of pro glass. If you want to do it to "prove a point" or to achieve an objective, then all's well and good, but don't expect prime IQ

    @CD77 Love it, especially it's size and setting it to hyperfocal means I don't have to worry about my eyesight. The hardest thing is finding subject inspiration to do it justice but it's as sharp as any other lens that I've got

    . . Very surprisingly this was a "one click" correction of fish eye in photoshop ACR lens profile! The bell was cast at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, which was founded in 1570 and is the oldest manufacturing company in Great Britain. In 1752, more than a century before the Brisbane...

    @CD77 Yes. I'm itching to see it's true worth but there is so much moisture in the air atm that all the colours seem flat. Boosting saturation and/or contrast doesn't seem to help so I'm resorting to mono with a lot of the images. I know it has very good rendering from the indoor test shots...

    Yeah sad ain't it? Ebay is yet again going through a cycle of discounting their retail clients as illustrated in my post above. $599 for their 5mkll and then a further discount of $50 and the enthusiast seller doesn't stand a chance of getting a decent price.

    . . Along with the panny 25mm 1.7 this lens has got to be the best buy in m43. They often go used for less than AUS$100 on ebay and you can even pick up a new one for <$170 when ebay is discounting. Mine cost me AUS$59 :) f6.3 seems to be the sweet spot Water Dragon Breeding Colour (1) by...
