View Full Version : ZD50mm F2.0 in the forest.

We all know the ZD50mm F2 is one of the sharpest lenses in the range but it does have a habit of hunting and slow focusing.
This is the first time I've used it in anger on the E-M1.

I found it performs better than on any of my previous cameras, much more "snappy". It will never be the fastest focus with all the distance it has to move but all round very good.

that first shot has a certain 'something' - you didn't take a couple of big soft boxes with you did you? *chr
