Thanks for the informative and thorough review. I am surprised however that 'Value' is only 3.5 stars. Owning a TG-5 and think it's easily 5 stars given all that the camera can do for US$400.

But you can't in the export dialogue change the file name.

Your lens was made in 1987 (Serial number 777...) not the early 1980s. Vivitar sold the Kobori-made 1:4 macro 28-200 f/3.5-5.3 in 1986 and 1987 (maybe 1988 too).

This is an interesting review, but worth adding that (I believe) this first EF L-series is one of the few AF lenses that was a straight carry-over of it's FD antecedent (introduced 1985) and therefore can be found in a the traditional manual focus trombone style too if desired.

Also, not to grumble but... While this is probably the first EF L-series the actual first L series lens was the 24-35L in 1979 - which was are-badge of the earlier 24-35SSC.

Been using mine for infrared. Noticeably better for detail & contrast than my old Lumix 14mm as might be expected and no problems with flare or centre hotspot detected even when the sun is nearly in frame (sensibly used.) Very impressed.

I have a good as gold 50mm f1.8 Olympus OM and a very good 25mm f2.8 Miranda (Om fitting) macro lens and have used both with an adaptor on my beloved OM D EM10 ii. You could slice ham with sharp images I get with both. Though the merest hint of chromatic aberration is visible with the Miranda that's easily dealt with in post.

I think that all the worries about the computing power needed to process these 100mp images are over-exaggerated, mostly. My 2012 machine handles them rather well. It only takes longer to export the results. However, it's not something a cheap laptop could easily digest. But then, if you are spending this kind of money on camera and lenses, you should be able to afford a proper computer too. The file size will cost you extra storage. But a pair of 10TB drives costs "only" around $600 now ($300 each). That's way cheaper than the memory cards that you'll use in this camera.
