    Hi friends.
    I happened to be in Federation Square today and there was this mini fashion parade kinda thing with three footy players and few models . OMD with Oly 45 mm 1.8 proved to be a deadly combo. I think Oly 45mm 1.8 is one of the most sharpest lenses in this focal length . I love shooting with it.
    Enjoy the images ..












    Thank god .. Oly 45 mm 1.8 is not this big..Its quite pocketable lens

    Very nice set.

    The first shot shows a lot of Moire on the gents jacket.

    I'm curious because I thought the OM-D's had AA filters which prevent this.

    It can be lessened in LR and PS:

    Thanks for that . These are SOOC JPEGs and I was too lazy to do anything. I have RAW fles but its only on one or two images.

    Thanks Bob
    That was the first thing in my mind when I saw this happening . Melbourne cup is coming soon and I am gonna pick up this 75 mm one.Worst come worst I may not like that FL and may end up selling it without losing any money.

    And the third from last - the same model.

    Bhupinder, this is a great set, and those two shots of a beautiful young woman are simply outstanding.

    Anti-alias filters do not prevent moire. They reduce the risk of it happening, but it cannot be prevented.

    The fabric that makes up the gent's jacket pictured obviously includes a high percentage of man made fibres. This leads to a geometric weave which is the most likely type of cloth to cause moire.

    You will note that none of the other jackets shows any sign of moire. I strongly suspect that their fabric contains a higher percentage of natural fibres that do not form such a geometric weave.

    I shoot social and corporate portraits and man made fibres are the bane of my life. They weren't a problem with film. It is all caused by digital sensors which have a pixel pattern themselves. If the frequency of that pixel pattern is close to that of the fabric as seen on the sensor, you get moire.

    Moire is usually fairly easy to cure. You just take a few steps back and the two patterns no longer coincide. Obviously you need a sensor with enough pixels to allow a crop and still retain enough detail. I use a Nikon D800 with 36 MP.

    I tried a Nikon D800E for a week. It has a sensor cover which apparently gives similar results to having no AA filter. It was a disappointment. While, on the one hand, the risk of moire was no greater than the D800, on the other, there did not seem to be a significant increase in apparent sharpness.

    So when my D700 comes off lease, I will replace it with a D800, not a D800E.
