About this deal

On the other hand it can be of advantage if you wear the cam by strap on your shoulder, because by pointing down to the ground, it’s kept safely aligned to your body. Color rendition is fine to me – maybe a little bit too neutral and without significant character (compared to my Panaleica 25mm/f1. it started to grow on me so much, I’d go so far as to say this is probably one of the best lenses I’ve ever used, and my favorite. Of course, it's important to bear in mind that there's still a huge advantage when it comes to like-for-like comparisons.

It all started with the original Olympus PEN, I got it and I ended up selling it in a matter of months.When you want manual focus, pull the ring toward you to engage manual focusing and reveal the focus distance scale. These primes fitted the early days of the system down to a tee, making good on the 'smaller, lighter' ethos which was the main draw of M4/3 and had never really been achieved by the legacy Four-Thirds DSLR system. It was way back in 2014 that we reviewed the first version of this lens, but now we have an updated Mk II, with the new ZERO coating and IP53-rated dust and splashproof construction. seems to be a skosh sharper but I think it’s not serious comparing this two, because I use the Pana a lot at f1. Overall: You'll be correcting the output of this lens either by shooting JPEGs and letting the camera do it, or you're going to want to use a converter that has a lens conversion ability for this lens.

It isn’t the best lens for a shallow depth of field on a Micro Four Thirds sensor but if you understand how to use it, it can surprise you.The 8-25mm PRO is fully compatible with Olympus in-camera 5-Axis Image Stabilization, which compensates for all types of camera motion. To my surprise, I actually ended up wanting the combo by my side at all times, so I upgraded to a bigger bag. When mounting this lens to a camera, it feels very securely locked in the mount, with the weather-sealing gasket providing a tight, reassuringly snug fit. So while the lack of in-lens image stabilisation is a non-issue for Olympus camera owners, other manufacturers who don't offer in-camera image stabilisation, like Panansonic (except for the GX7) may want to consider a different lens. wіth аn іntrісаtе орtісаl ѕtruсturе аnd аdvаnсеd АF ѕуѕtеm thаt оffеrѕ ехсерtіоnаl іmаgе quаlіtу аnd реrfоrmаnсе.

At 12mm, it measures over 8% barrel distortion and that doesn't get down to reasonable levels until somewhere about 22mm.There were limits to all of these cameras (it’s not a bad thing btw) but with the 12-40mm, it’s like I can shoot anything that comes my way! This lens will help you capture stunning close-up shots of insects, leaves and flowers and other small objects. I wasn't expecting these results given the heavy compensations that are necessary to correct the linear distortion. The compact size of the new Olympus 12-40mm lens should be a big draw for these users, as well as others who are constantly on the go, shoot in harsh environments or simply need a rugged, fast zoom lens in a small package. being the worst case at just over one pixel's width, and almost every other focal length and aperture being significantly under that.
