Re: Envy of the world ?

Re: Envy of the world ?

The NHS is very effective at directing resources to those who need them most, rather than pandering to the "worried well", or doing more for those with insurance than those without. It is also very...

Re: Olympus 4/3 7-14 f4 and Panasonic 20 f1.7

I *love* my FT 7-14 (Super-High Grade in the old categorisation). Doesn't get a *lot* of use but there's nothing else like it (in my kit) for when I want it, and the results can be stunning. Hope...

Re: Nothing new from Olympus at Photokina, but...

4mm fisheye! Can't imagine how wide that is. Even the 7mm end of my (FT) 7-14 seems pretty extreme. The 4mm looks more like a paperweight or a crystal ball than a lens.

9mm shift sounds...

Re: Nothing new from Olympus at Photokina, but...

Yes, JPEG is a limitation if you want to do more post processing. I don't have Adobe programs and don't do a lot of PP. Mainly use DXO and a few features of Affinity. Never tried combining multiple...

Re: Nothing new from Olympus at Photokina, but...

On the question of dynamic range in landscapes, I quite often find I want more detail in the bright areas (usually sky) and also in the dark areas. Sometimes I find this nicely (and easily)...

Re: Nothing new from Olympus at Photokina, but...

Ah - I see. The widest available aperture doesn't vary when zooming (i.e. more like the 12-40 f/2.8;not like the 12-60 f/2.8-f/4).

Sounds an interesting lens spec for indoors - perhaps especially...
