Lancaster

A few grab-shots from Lancaster city centre. Got there late and had about a half-hour before the day finally disappeared...

Lancaster University

My son is probably going to be heading off to Lancaster University this coming Autumn so we were up there for a visit. I've never been up to Lancaster before so it was interesting to see the campus...

Re: Long Tailed Tit

That's a cracker. The 100-400 is quite a lens really. I reckon that it's 95% of the sharpness of the 300 f4, but the zoom makes it a much more versatile option. It's a pity that Oly and Panasonic...

Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

I wasted about 5 mins of CPU time deciding that this "feature" is about as useful as CAF tracking on my E-M1ii!

Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

I've tried it on a number of images - 16 and 20 Mp m43 imagess and also from a few other cameras like the Fuji xe1 and Sony A7rii and have failed to see any difference at all.

Re: Blue Tit Crop

Very nice. The 300/4 is so sharp, even at 100% images still look superb.

Re: Reposted. FS M1 Mk 1 + 14-150mm lens

Is that including the lens Dave? If so, it's a steal!

Re: Signs of spring

I think I agree with you Alf. Is this better?

Lakes photo trip with Alf?

I think most of us appreciate Alf's stunning landscapes of the Lakes. His post earlier this week with shots from this year prompted me to wonder if he'd be up for hosting a little outing to share...

Re: A mix of this years Landsacpes

Hi Alf - I'll open another thread to judge interest. I agree that doing something before the summer would be the most sensible. 3am starts to catch the sunrise don't really appeal!

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

I don't think anyone could have expected a 12-200 lens to be a good performer. However, at 800 it's just crazy money for what's basically kit-lens quality. Maybe it's just a sign of the times...

Superb Alf. I always like your work. Always of very high technical quality and with a knack of capturing the best light and locations. Fantastic stuff!

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

There are some sample shots over on DPReview - https://www.dpreview.com/samples/4504113179/olympus-12-200mm-f3-5-6-3-sample-gallery

They pretty much confirm what the MTFs say - this isn't a Pro...

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

At 800 though, it's hardly cheap. I think I'd prefer a used 12-40 and 40-150 combo - probably not a lot more. Maybe 1100 total if you catch a bargain.

Re: Firmware update 3.1

Biggest annoyance on the EM1.2 is that in moving to dedicated custom settings rather than assigning mysets to mode dial positions we've gone from 4 to 3 configurable customised dial slots.

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

MTF seems pretty poor at 12mm in the edges.

Re: Lazy camera store

You can't go wrong with the 17/1.8, or the Panasonic 15/1.7 or even the Panasonic 20/1.7. The little Panasonic 12-32 is excellent too and very compact.

Of course, for the real Leica experience,...
