i loved my oly 75mm but i sold that and got this because the same bokeh can be achieved at f1.4 despite the shorter focal length and more importantly, i can handhold this and slow my shutter speed to 1/5 to get clean images with the much lower ISO.. adding much versatility to my night shoots.

thanks everyone for sharing your images, reviews and comments in this awesome forum which opened my eyes to this gem of a lens which i think is an undiscovered treasure in the m43 realm..

Combo - new 56mm lens test with a new-to-me B&W filter on the G85 (had the camera for 2 years, and have never used this filter setting and adjustments).

I'll call this series "natural textures" :)

i have been seriously thinking of switching out of m43 given all the uncertainties but this combination of em1 mk2 + sigma 56mm f1.4 which weighs just 855g allowing me to handhold 112mm FL in FF equivalent at 1/10s or even 1/5 shutter speed seems to be unbeatable.. perhaps the A6600 + Sony 85mm f1.8 perform very similarly (bumping ISO higher to compensate for the lousier IBIS) but i just went to a Sony store yesterday and Oly just feels more like a proper camera and the body is 50% cheaper in the 2nd hand market here in Singapore. a real pity Oly and Pany seem to be placing less efforts in the m43 segment...

I wanted to see how this Sigma would perform in pseudo-macro work. Turns out it's pretty decent even though the magnifiction ratio isn't that big. All taken with E-M5III + Sigma 56mm + Raynox DCR-150.

Great pics.
There is a black background. Does this lack of light tell us that you used a flash?
I really like the effect!

Thanks! Yep, flash used. And in some photos I did selective editing to make the background even darker for "artistic reasons". I wanted the background black because there wasn't anything back there that would have improved the photos - in fact quite the opposite actually.
