Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

Thanks Artframes. Those are cracking pictures and you have answered all my queries.

Before I saw your response I also spoke to Wex about this. Based on what you both have told me, I am putting...

Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

I read that people have used the Sigma 150-600mm lens with something called a Metabones T smart adapter to work with MFT system cameras. Is this true? If so

Re: Lenses: relative length & diameter

I never had the Olympus 25mm f1.8 but having owned the 45mm f1.8 for 5 years, often wondered about its compact size. The price per se might be something to do with marketing policy, popularity etc....

Re: Lenses: relative length & diameter

My Panasonic 100-300mm f4-5.6 is 126mm long, has a 67mm filter thread and weighs just over 500g. That fits well into my camera bag inside its padded JJC case. The way I am thinking, that is a design...

Re: Lenses: relative length & diameter

That sounds encouraging. What I'd love Sigma to do then is to design a 150-400mm f4.5-5.6 MFT lens that is only 125mm long and has no more than 72mm filter thread up front. With that, a weight of up...

Lenses: relative length & diameter

I am no expert in the physics involved in lens-making but always thought that with same-fit lenses having the same max apertures, the lens with a longer focal length would be longer and larger than...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Seriously, IMO the answer to this depends on the definition of "as good", especially to whom. For out & out professionals and perhaps fanatical semi-pros, a FF DSLR system would be ideal. But for...

Re: Any OLympus FL-600R Users Here?

Don't know about using as a slave master but while I have owned the FL-600R for 6 years, I find it rather unreliable. The auto-zoom function broke down once, costing me 60 to get it repaired and...

Re: Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN

Sorry for quoting myself but I felt like bragging as I did not do too badly with my guess on what the release price in the UK would be. ;)

Re: Panasonic 15mm f1.7 suitable companion?

That is true. I had the 17mm f2.8 for over 3 years and it was good enough. I sold it with the original OMD EM5 when I bought the Mk II and at the same time upgraded to the 17mm f1.8.

Probably just...

Re: Panasonic 15mm f1.7 suitable companion?

Which one? There is also an older Olympus 17mm f2.8 'Pancake' lens that is just OK but I have always thought that the 17mm f1.8 is superb.

Re: Panasonic 15mm f1.7 suitable companion?

Good choice. The Olympus 12mm f2 is a proper wide-angle lens and like the 17mm f1.8, is all metal with a similar 'clutch' for manual focusing. With both but especially the 12mm, a lens hood (also...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

If Olympus made a 150-400mm lens as f4.5-5.6 instead, can it be made around the same size as the Panasonic 100-300mm f4-5.6? At least the same length (with an extending zoom, of course) if a bit...

Re: Panasonic 15mm f1.7 suitable companion?

This is another lens that I owned and used for a few years before selling. When the Sigma 30mm f 1.4 DC DN came out, I felt that it had a few more options than the PanLeica 25mm f1.4. My mindset was...

Re: Panasonic 15mm f1.7 suitable companion?

I owned the PanLeica 15mm f1.7 for about 2 years before selling it recently. I felt that as a wide angle lens it was superb in all respects. The reason i sold it was because I also had the Olympus...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

Yes, but a FF equivalent of a 400mm f4 MFT lens woud be absolutely huge. First of all, it needs to be an 800mm lens to get the same focal distance. If it is an exact equivalent, ie an 800mm f8 FF...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

Will that not take away one of the main selling points of the MFT system - portability?

Re: It came away in her hands

Although I have not had any mishaps yet, the JJC hood for the Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro lens feels as though something may give. I seldom use it and the sliding function is more than a bit dodgy. The...

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

I don't have a great deal of knowledge of optics but it seems to me even an MFT lens 150-400mm f2.8 PRO would be impractically huge. Would a facility for internal zooming make it even larger?

Re: "Best" Portrait Lens...

IMO, with a 25mm MFT lens (50mm FF equivalent) one has to get quite close to the subject to use it as a portrait lens. With an aperture of f0.95, this might narrow the DoF to the extent to make...

Re: F1.2 pro glass

The Sigma 30 mm f1.4 is a superb lens and one of the best value buys around. Though plastic, it has a high quality feel and optical performance is superb. Ideal lens for full length or dual (couple)...

Re: "Best" Portrait Lens...

Yes, agreed. This is probably because of its 9 aperture diaphragm blades as opposed to 7 in the Olympus 45 mm f1.8. I also found that the bokeh with the 75 mm f1.8 at 3.34 metres is better than at an...

Re: 17mm f1.2

You said it. A friend owned the old Canon 85mm f1.2 lens (which would have a DoF equivalent of a Nocticron with f0.6 :eek:!). Not only was it almost as heavy as his mini ;), head-and- shoulders...
