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: 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...

Filters affecting autofocus speed?

I never thought about the possibility that a simple UV filter can affect speed of autofocus but I discovered that it does - quite significantly so.

When I bought the Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN a couple...

Re: Flash gun sizes

Plenty of info in the appropriate websites.

The Olympus FL-600R is stored stretched out in its case and is reasonably compact.

The Nissin i40 is stored in the 'closed' L-shape in its case...

Re: Barn Owl Flying in Sunlight

All are great but that first one is fantastic. The bokeh is perfect, thus accentuating the sharpness of the owl.

What was the aperture setting?

Re: Today's Short Eared Owl

Thanks for that. While photographing animals, I always like to know the gender unless it is obvious (eg lions).

The other thing I wanted to comment is how nice the bokeh has come out in those...

Re: Rainbow Lorikeets on a Rainy Day!

Great pics! Live the colourful birds but also the bokeh in the first two pictures.

Re: Whitby after dark.

The first one especially is superb. Looking at the lights, did you use a star-filter by any chance?

Re: Tempted by the Olympus 12-100mm

Steambuff, I accept what you are saying. But I need a good superzoom lens for travel use as a single lens. I do not expect it to be as good as my Olympus 17mm f1.8, 45mm f1.8 or 75mm f1.8.

At...

Re: Attack!

Superb, especially the second picture where you've caught the bird in its dive.

Re: Macro setting 12-50mm f3.5 EZ. Impressed!

I am impressed too. Both with the superb photo and the excellent lens. I own it. Came as the kit lens with the EM5 and while I am selling off the camera, I have kept this one.

Re: Chair Light

Nice picture. TBH, I did not think much of it at first but went back to look at it again and learned to appreciate it. The play of light makes the similar chairs look different from each other,...

Re: Beach Huts

Nice. I like the first one best of all because there are no distractions and it has a certain 1950s atmosphere about it.

I was going to say the same thing. The moon adds just the right touch.

Re: Green Woodpecker

Excellent. Perhaps a closer crop around the bird would be nicer? Just an opinion.

Re: Wasdale tonight

Very nice, and personally I like it the way it is. I guess the sun was behind you and to the left. The dark shadows on the left lower side of the frame only add to the 'creeping darkness' feeling. I...

Re: A question to birdwatchers

Thanks all. The closest lens I have is the Panasonic G Vario 100-300mm but at f5.6 at the 300mm end it is rather too slow to produce a nice bokeh. We have a big garden and get plenty of robins, tits...

Re: Cuba 318 - Does processing matter?

I prefer the second picture. The first is way too warm for my liking. As for the blue sky, I have seen it that deep blue in certain parts of the Caribbean (never been to Cuba) and so it is not...

Re: Inequality

A very common problem with an easy answer. Find a good battery company that is not that common in the UK (I chose Varta, they are good). Hide the new ones at first but carefully keep the empty ones...

Re: Cairnbulg, Aberdeenshire

Great pictures. I am pleased to see that the underrated Olympus 40-150mm f4-5.6 R can produce such superb results. The 'wreck' is particularly effective in its framing and colour reproduction. Very...
