Okay, time for a quick bokeh comparison between the Olympus 45 and Panasonic Leica 42.5. My kids and wife think this mannequin head I ordered from Amazon is super creepy, and I have to say I agree. So this will probably be its one and only appearance here at Mu-43.com, but I was looking for a way to do controlled bokeh testing, and my kids won't stand still for pictures. Here are a few of the things I anticipate being nitpicked about: -The framing isn't matched. Yes, the 42.5 is shorter (wider angle of view), and I didn't move the tripod for the shots. If I had moved the tripod for the shot to match framing, the 42.5 would have more blur than shown here, and someone would have told me that I should have matched perspective. Can't have it all. -The f-numbers aren't matched. Yes, I shot the Oly wide open at f/1.8 and the PL wide open at f/1.2 for all the shots. There's more than one way to do a bokeh test, and I'm guessing this will be of more interest to people than a matched f-number comparison. -The photos are crappy. Yes, I made no effort to take good photos here. Just rattled off a few bokeh shots before too many of my neighbors see me with a woman's head on a stick. Now onto the comparisons. Click through for full-res (Lightroom 4.3 conversions from RAW, all settings to defaults, camera = E-M1. First one is the Oly in each set: My suggestion is to middle-click on each to open the full-res version on a browser tab (or right click and open in new tab) and the switch back and forth between tabs to compare. Works great if your browser automatically sizes the image to fit the window.
