Unfortunately, it's been SO HOT (over 90 for over 7 days straight) so I'm struggling to get my roses enough water. You can tell, by the crispy edges of the outer petals. 😓

I've been playing around with the Olympus OM F-Zuiko 85mm f2 lens my neighbour passed on to me.

These are my first attempts with it attached to my E-M10 mk 3 and once I take a bit more time and care with focussing,
I think this is going to be one of my favourite lenses. :)

Good Evening,

Just got back from a 3-1/2 week trip out West...temperatures in CT more to my liking. Tried out one of my favorite Canon EF-L lenses (EF400mm f5.6L) using the Metabones to u4/3 adapter and pleased with the results. The IBIS on the Mark II worked very well with this combo.

Regards,

Edd

First shots using my Konica 57mm f1.4 lens on my Olympus EM10ii. Decided to shoot some things that didn't try to escape or hide. A pink rose and a red/yellow flower of a variety that I don't recognize.

Good Afternoon,

a Jobu gimbal mounted to my kayak.

Good Evening,

I thought I would take one of my first 4/3rds lenses for a trip in the kayak...this one never disappoints!

Good Afternoon,

Trying out the EC-14 T.C. on the 50-200mm SWD; hunts a bit but gets the lock eventually and it is really sharp. My adapted EF 300mm f4L & IS versions (with Metabones EF to u4/3rds) are a bit more consistent and lighter to hand-hold, but no chance of AF-C at all.

Regards,

Edd

Well, it was Konica Day in Shelby NC today. To be precise, I loaded up some of the latest fruits of my OLAS and wandered around town. Shelby is, like much of this part of the state, formerly textile strong. Old mills, warehouses, and structures dot the county. I've lived here for 30 years, and had never seen the building(s) in some of these pics. I'll post up more as I get them through processing. Apologies in advance for any cross-posting you may see.

That is one superb set of lenses you've got there Sir. :th_salute:
I'm really looking forward to seeing more from this set; both lenses and location. :thumbup:

I am making my very first adapter using a C mount adapter as my starting point. I am not sure if all C mount adapters are the same profile or not. This is the only one I have.

From my calculations the red X, in the photo below, marks the plane for the C mount flange distance and the blue X marks the plane for the m4/3 flange distance. Is that correct? I want to be sure I am measuring from the right place to calculate the correct length of my adapter (M42 to M4/3) which should be 26.2mm.

There is also a tiny little screw on the m4/3 part of the adapter. Shown on the black adapter below. What is that tiny screw for? Is it used to snug up an adapter? If so how does it work?

I hope this is the correct place to be asking questions like this? I couldn't find another thread that I thought was appropriate.
Thanks

You do realize that you can buy a M42 to M43 adapter off fleabay for $10+/- ? That gnarly guy in Australia might be able help you with information on how to make the adapter. He uses a lot of adapted lenses and can be found in the 'Showcase Motorcycle' picture section.
I made a body cap lens out of a body cap and a 25mm f5.6 lens from of an old Kodak Advantix 35mm camera and had one heck of a time shimming the lens to get the focusing where it should be. Turned out pretty decent but is no substitute for the great Pan/Leica 25mm f1.4! YMMV.
Good luck.

Good Afternoon,

I'm starting to narrow down the lenses that are easy to use while kayaking and trying to limit the overall size and weight of the gear. For what I have found for my needs, this MF FDn 300mm f4 L is nearly perfect. I picked up a second copy of it last year (a COVID-19 GAS purchase) and very impressed with both using IBIS for perched birds or slowly moving wildlife. This was shot at f4; going to f5.6 would cost a full stop worth of shutter speed for very little central sharpness gain or contrast based on my experience with these lenses.

Regards,

Edd

More from Konica Day. I didn't use the 50/1.4 as much as the others. I have a group where I shot the same rough subject with the 40, 50, and 200, but I haven't gone through those yet.

This was an entry office of one section of the mill across the street from the warehouse. Long idle.

The warehouse has a bunch of ramps and docks. I was walking back to the truck and picked up on this view:

And back at the body shop. The 200 popped some CA in this light; took some work to tone it down.

I left this shot out. The warehouse obviously predated large-scale air conditioning. Since the doors are probably open when there is activity taking place, it's probably still not practical. There are several of these along the front of the building near the top of the wall. Best estimate is 3-4' in diameter.

Mandevilla vine after last nights passing thunderstorm. Kodak 63mm f2.7 "c-mount" lens. Ignore the Trioplan lens data. I forgot to change the menu again.
