    Micro 4/3 Why the Olympus 25mm 1.8

    Some of you know that over several years I had lots of Olympus lenses. Some lenses I sold a and bought it again. The 17mm 1.8 I tried many months but couldn't fall in love even it is a great lens. The Olympus 40-150mm f4-5.6 I bought three times and sold it after view month, the last one I sold...

    Manual Lens TTArtisans 25mm f/2 (Fuji X)

    Got this yesterday and had a chance to wander around with it today. It is sharp enough (IMO) but the corners are pretty bad to my eye - but I was expecting that given that this lens cost £69 brand new. It feels nice on the camera, with smooth focus and a clicked aperture. I favour WA and UWA...

    Micro 4/3 Showcase Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 25mm f/0.95

    I could not find a showcase for this one, so made one. All at f0.95 or slightly bumped the aperture ring to f1.1 ish. Went to my hometown for a small trip. I think the lens really fit the vibe there.

    Micro 4/3 The Pergear 25mm f/1.8 - cheap fun

    A week or so ago, I bought a lightly-used Olympus E-P3 on a whim - I'd always wanted one - and the gentleman who sold it to me included a very inexpensive lens which he said he had no need for, but claimed was rather decent. The lens is made by Pergear - a Chinese company I know nothing about -...

    Micro 4/3 Showcase OLYMPUS M.ZUIKO 25mm F1.8

    The Oly 25 is really nice and I might buy another. I have the PanLeica 25mm f/1.4 now, but Oly would be a better fit on my Pen F.

    Infrared Gear The Meike 25mm f1.8 and infrared

    The Meike 25mm f1.8 arrived about an hour ago, and the first thing was to test it to see how well it did infrared photography. The answer is not perfectly but well enough to be entirely usable. The short version: it's just fine in infrared color up to f5.6, and in black-and-white up to f8 and...

    Portraits are perhaps not my strong suit...

    A friend of mine needed some publicity shots for her new book, so I grabbed the GX7 and the Oly 25/45/75 lenses and headed into downtown Seattle on what could easily be described as the crappiest day of weather I've seen in years. Cold, rainy, windy. Ugh. Anyway, we shot a bit in the massive...
