This looks like a nice piece of glass. That's glass, I said glass!!!
Quote: So what about something like the Canon 200mm f4 prime
when the panasonic GH1 first came out I got one and found a copy of that lens. I didn't like the GH1 but thought the lens was superb and such excellent value, from memory it cost me about £49. I sold it all to a buddy and gave up on the m4/3rds system until the EM5 came along, funny how what goes around comes around
Sorry if this has been posted before, but over 50 pages I can;t be bothered to go back and check. this link is to a user guide on DPReview on how to get the best out of the OM-D
Taken with the Canon 50mm macro. The poker dice (die?) is 16mm and the photo is a 33% crop from the full sized image. I like the way the imperfections in the object are nice and clear.
Another with the same macro lens. Image area is about 10mm wide and the crop is 25%.
Just been checking Ebay prices, lol out of this world, or at least the bidders are.
How could a lens reach 150 notes, yet only cost 20 quid on the high street
I have read comments that the OM-D is a bit sluggish AF in lowlight - any comments on this?
Also, does it have custome settings - I don't mean assigning tasks to different buttons, but something akin to the C1,C2,C3 buttons on the 7D where you can switch quickly between operation profiles for different scenarios (such as Av/ISO 400/AI servo for birds in flight, and Av/ISO200/One-shot for landscape)? I have had a trawl but the terminology may be different.

Any camera can be a little sluggish in low light, are you sure your not getting mixed up with the new fuji

Depends a lot on the lens. My two Olys are very fast in low light, the Panny less so. The Canons are MF.
Quote: Also, does it have custome settings
Yes, there are 4 custom settings. They can be assigned to function buttons etc.

I've not seen any at £150. If they are £20 maybe they are the old breechlock variety? (And therefore useless for M4/3?)
A brief splash of light and cessation of rain gave me the chance to play with some fledgling Sparrows in the garden today using the Oly 75-300. I was relying heavily on the AF as I still can't see too clearly through the EVF at the mo (although it is improving) Using the smallest AF box as the birds were hiding in the Camellia and under next door's Buddleia
So many variables, lens used, how you use the lens, camera settings etc.
I believe the EM5 is one of the better ones
Ok any body want a vivitar 19mm, yours for 400 quid, some are dearer on ebay

Lol your on about Canon mount, the very old one, its a two minute job changing mounts
How nice to see some sparrows. They've all but disappeared aorund my neck of the woods.
I'd happily trade you a few CB we have anything up to 50 of the little devils in our garden during the day. House, Tree and "Hedge" (Dunnock) variants, they + the Starlings have seen off most of our Finches (haven't seen our Goldfinches for a couple of years)
What with them and the neighbour's cat killing our Chiffchaff and Tits, they are becoming a bit of a bore
