About this deal
Further, you gain at least 2-3 stops in the other direction because of the OM-Ds excellent internal VR and lack of a mirror…I can hand hold to 1/6″ on my OM-D and retain sharpness on a 90MM equivalent lens…can’t get anywhere close to that on my D700. Before they knew it, their children were off to high school, going to university, getting married, and having children of their own. M.Zuiko PW EX Micro Four Thirds Lens features is an extra-bright, full-metal bodied prime lens that is designed to meet the needs of portrait, sport and low light photographers.
It’s only natural that this works the other way when he expresses his lack of enthusiasm towards some manufacturers. This is an absurd statement (I’m sorry to say so) because what matters is not shooting at 12500 Iso with skins that look like plastic but the overall quality of the pictures. For this reason alone, I foresee myself keeping the 75mm well into the future — or at least until all my extended family’s kids have become too old for fun photographs.for a portrait is a handful of centimeters… So unless you just like portraits where only the left eye is on focus well a M43 can do the job. I find that it’s a great walk around lens – paired with a wider lens, of course – for getting close to sunsets, and shooting little details off of buildings. My issue is I am not always off traveling and seeing exotic sights so I have to settle in Phx AZ for photo pops, and there are very few. means that it doesn’t isolate things from their backgrounds as clearly as the wider aperture 20mm, 45mm and 75mm do.
Now the lens is protectected very well against rain, has a hood and - what is good for street-fotos, it is hardly attracting attention ;-). It also makes it very difficult to spin focus back from a far distance to a subject closer to the lens. Wonderful image quality, lovely camera but this: “and the OM-D as a tool that can do anything the big guys can do” is of course utter nonsense. The lens feels dense from the onset and will provide a small amount of added stress around your neck when carrying the lens on-the-go.Pair it with the Olympus PEN-F (a camera that I think is the best black and white digital camera on the market right now), and you’ll be blown away by the results. The lens produces beautiful backgrounds with nine aperture blades — bokeh balls jumped brilliantly in my viewfinder at Christmas time. Sure, I had the 1st in the world review for that lens and it is also 4X the cost of the Olympus and will take you down to a 100mm on Micro 4/3 and is MF only. If you shoot a lot of portraits, and you really want to produce the best portrait shots ever, this lens should be in consideration. As I have mentioned in previous posts I am anxiously awaiting the new Fujifilm X-E1 (and look forward to your guest review on the camera next week) … but if Fuji doesn’t get raw support from Aperture and CS6, I will be switching to Olympus.
