Exactly. I picked up one of those and a 50mm ƒ3.5 macro for $15 each. I've used the macro -- It's awesome -- but I still need to take out the diminutive 200. I'm also keeping an eye out for a Canon FD 200/4 which is larger, but I have some treasured photos I took with it back in the day before I let it get run over by a bunch of cars while attached to my AE-1...
I just set the focal length that I use the most via the SCP. Not ideal as I am always zooming in or out. With the CZ 80-200 I set it at 180 when fitting to camera, and don't change it.I have not tried an adapted zoom yet.
How do you enter it into the camera for IBIS purposes? Or do you just not bother with IBIS?
Do you find that IBIS works well with this strategy? Or have you had a chance to really see?I just set the focal length that I use the most via the SCP. Not ideal as I am always zooming in or out. With the CZ 80-200 I set it at 180 when fitting to camera, and don't change it.
Yes! I have the Lens Info assigned to the top front button. But I have a lot of legacy glass, and I have 1.4 and 2.0 tele-extenders, and a 0.7 focal reducer, and I use up the ten slots with just a few lenses!A method that I've found to work quite well with manual zooms is to add a separate Lens Info entry for each significant focal length, and assign Lens Info to a Fn button.
What I would really like — and what I've suggested to Olympus engineers — is a bottomless list, sorted by last use, so your most-used choices are at the top of the list. Alas, I don't think Olympus's highest priority is making it easier to get by without buying new lenses.Lens Info data isn't included when saving camera settings to a computer, otherwise it would be possible to create a database of values for multiple lenses and load the data appropriate to the lens you're about to use.
