the 14-45 is a very good lens from what i can tell and from reading around the web. It has a very sold feel to it and is soon to be replaced by the 14-42 which is apparentyl not as good in the build quality area. General opinion is to pick one up if you can...
First shots with 45-200
Just went into town and took some pics with my new lens. All took on Ia mode and handheld on a windy promenade and straight out of the camera with no pp or cropping.
I am more than happy with my first results.
Spot the odd one...
My wife is going to kill me!!!!
I have just picked this lens up second hand for £165 on ebay.
I could not afford to miss it at that price. So thats 2 lenses bought in less than a week but its not bad-total spend £335 for a 14-45 and 45-200.:2thumbs:
I am off now to look around the...
Just to let anyone know who is considering buying this lens. Mine arrived today and it is fully boxed.The listing stated unboxed?
Amazing service seeing as i ordered it on Monday evening.
I have not seen this lens brand new and boxed any cheaper anywhere!
The lens seems to have a great build...
My favourite photographer is Helmut Newton
Here is a link to some pics.
Of course it goes without saying any of the photographers that take part in Americas next top model...............hehe:tongue:
I have just picked up the 14-45 lens brand new for £170. There are 3 left if anyone else wants one.
It is listed for £199 buy it now but if you offer £170 it will accept the offer.:smile:
What a great idea.....why didnt i think of doing this. I guess i just thought that the bigger the jpeg size the better the jpeg image but if they are only being shown with a max res of 1024x768 online it makes sense rather than resize a big one which will lose quality.
So this way i will keep...
I just uploaded mine using the link for the picture in my Flikr account. Im not shure if this is the most efficient way though as it might use up more bandwidth than if the files were linked from your user gallery on this site?
Just two quick snaps grabbed on the way to the woods.
I was amazed with the sharpness of the 20mm.I think the sky is blown out though.......need to learn how to fix that.There was no sun though only cloud cover.
Just a few randon pics taken today.All JPEG straight out of the camera.
I love the symmetry to the trees.This is taken in 'Witchy Wood Walkway'
I was lucky this fella didnt attack me.
I like the shape of the bark.
I just thoughy i should add that my Son is not actually born yet.................hehe
He is due in July so i have a couple of months to get up to speed with the camera but thank you in advance to those who wished me congtaulations.
After lots of reading,comparing and seeking advice i finally ordered a red GF-1 with 20mm 1.7f lens.
I have picked it up after the £50 cashback for a total of £570!
The lens itself would cost me £300 so i have basically got a GF-1 body for £270!
I think the things that swayed it for me...
Lots of great advice. I dont have any old lenses and will only have a kit lens either Pan or Oly and the 20mm for some considerable time.
Feel free to keep adding to the thread as i am shure it will help others aswel as myself.
Great advice l and good comments shows this is a very friendly...
I am really torn between the Pan GF1 and the Oly EPL1.
My main worry is camera shake. Not that i have shakey hands but i will mostly be taking pics of my new born Son, general family pics and i would say 50/50 insde and out. My initial concern is that the Pan 20mm 1.7 has not OIS.
Looks like i am going to be ordering the lens. I think i was concerned with the noise for video but to be honest i think i would be using the kit lens for general video most of the time.
Now i just have to decide if its the Ep1-Epl-1 or GF-1.
Each one has features i want but not one has them...
I am considering purchasing this lens but i have never spent this amount on a lens before. I know it seems to have great optics but this noise thing is really putting me off. I saw a video on youtube and the noise was just awful. I think it is mostly heard when the camera is in C-AF mode and...
I see that this ships with the EPL-1. Is it just the same as Master?
I cant find any information on the websites apart from Malaysia.http://www.olympusimage.com.my/products/compact/accessories/software/ib/
I am thinking of switching form my E-600 to either of the mentioned models.
I just have a couple of queries.
I know the specs of both cameras but what i need to know are.........
1. Is the fit on flash for the Ep1 superior to the pop up flash of the EpL-1? I will probably be using the flash...
