Re: Why two lines, PEN and OMD?

There's a DJI version of this lens for sale now at MPB for 249 with free delivery. I'm sort of tempted.

Re: Test Of Time

I've dabbled with some film shooting in the last few months using HP5 or FP4 with my OM-1. I've been a bit disappointed with the results TBH. The biggest problem has been dust and drying marks, but...

Re: Remembering...

Actually, Concorde's safety record was pretty awful too. There was only the one crash of course, but bits would fall off it regularly. Truth be told, it was a complex machine built in a day when...

Re: People You Admire

I met him some years ago. He was at a gliding club with a film crew as part of the making of one of his shows (I think Walking with Dinosaurs). He was a utterly charming gent and very humble. No...

Totally agree on those two. The trouble is, there is a quite a back catalogue of personalities to chose from!

Re: Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5/ Samyang 7.5mm

I had the Rokinon 7.5mm and replaced it with the Samyang 7.5mm. Exact same lens, but the Rok I had was silver and the Samyang is black (which is why I changed!).

Re: Test Of Time

That's a great shot John and a perfect example of how film emulsion is a good archival medium. I sometimes doubt whether we'll be able to read our ORF files in 6 years, let alone 60!

Re: What do you want Oly to release at Photokina?

OK, here you go... The whole process is very quick - the shots take no time and the stacking is done in less than a minute, even on my somewhat old laptop.

1) Set camera to a high repeat mode. ...

Re: Why two lines, PEN and OMD?

True - the CAF on the Pen is a complete train wreck. Worse than any of their other cameras.

Re: Seems a good deal 300mm prime

There are a couple of grey importers selling them at that price. I'm pretty sure the trick is that they are avoiding import duties and VAT. Abuse seems pretty widespread in this area and there are...

Re: Why two lines, PEN and OMD?

The Pen F is basically an E- M5ii in a different body style. It picked up the newer 20Mp sensor along the way (and lost weather sealing!) but it's really a very similar camera in capability.

Re: I'm only a poor little robin

The lens is quite the business. Remarkable optic. Need to make final decision as to whether I keep it this weekend. I think I probably will.

Here's an example. Both 100% crops with Pen-F at ISO 3200 and shot handheld at 1/250th sec. First is single shot, developed from raw using LR defaults. Second is 8 stacked shots in PS (effective...
