    Re: Micro 4/3 bound

    Ned, I ordered it after taking the photos. I won't have it for another week. Figured out how to reliably get the enlargement to work (reading the manual, what a concept!), and took a few more, but focusing on something that shaky is not my cup of tea...I shake too much all by myself. I'm stunned by the lovely images of this 1955 lens and the color jpgs are much closer to my E-1 and M8 than the E-3 were. Got to get rid of that E-3...
    My only problem now is that I can't get ORF's into Photoshop...all my other Olympus work. Am I missing something?

    Hans, which version of Photoshop are you using? You may need to a) update the Camera RAW plug-in or even update your version of Photoshop. The alternative is to download the free DNG RAW conversion utility from Adobe and convert your ORFs to DNG and these should work with your version of Photoshop.

    Ian, I have CS-3.
    I just downloaded the DNG converter, we'll see how it works.

    Re: Micro 4/3 bound

    I just can't figure it out. Something is messed up, might have to switch to Olympus Master 2. Might give Adobe a call Monday. Meanwhile here's a jpeg of our Maine Coon with that Summilux 50 wide open. Man they made good lenses in the '50's. Sometimes I think just about everything has been "overthought" these days.


    I got a cheapo OM to micro ($59) but the 55mm f1.2 and it aren't good so far. Might be the lens, I've heard the 50/1.2 is much better, or maybe I just need the VF-2 and some time with it.
    Thanks to all of you and I hope to be around more as my enthusiasm has returned.

    Thanks, West Arm Rider!
    It's mostly the lens and a very nice Olympus Pen. I'm starting to feel my way around this camera. Can't wait to try some of my other Leitz lenses. They should be "gangbusters" with the new OM-5D.

    I have a Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 and it is noticeably soft wide open. The 1.2 will be just as soft, if not softer But that softness can be put to good use, or you can sharpen up by stopping down a little.

    Re: Micro 4/3 bound

    Thanks Ian, I've got a lot of playing around to do. I'm sure the OM 1.2 will be good for certain things. I got the Panasonic 14-45 yesterday and that just makes the learning curve larger. It's a good way to feel my way around the camera though. Can't wait for the VF-2!

    Ned, I got the VF-2 and that helped considerably. Thanks for pointing me in that direction. The OM 55 f1.2 is looking a lot more like it should too. I've got a Vivitar 135/f2.8 compact lens coming so that ought to round out my MF primes. While I was at it I got the 40-200 Panasonic, so I have the "required" slow AF lenses for m4/3. Still waiting for the adaptor for the 4/3 lenses. When that comes I'll be able to tell better what works for me and what to dump.
    Thanks guys for all the help!

    No problem, Hans. A fast-fifty and a 135mm/2.8 is my most common manual focus setup as well. I also add the 1.4x teleconverter though, so my 135mm/2.8 also works as a 200mm/4. Before that I just brought an actual 200mm/4.
    Olympus E-3 | Olympus E-PL2 PEN | Olympus E-PM1 PEN | Zuiko ED 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD | Zuiko 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 | Vivitar 100mm f/2.8 Macro | Carl Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 | Konica Hexanon 50mm f/1.4 | Konica Hexanon 85mm f/1.8 | G.Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 | Zuiko 35mm f/3.5 Macro | Zuiko 25mm f/2.8 | KMZ Jupiter-3 50mm f/1.5 | E.Zuiko 200mm f/4 | Zuiko 75-150mm f/4 | Olympus EC-14 teleconverter | VF-2 and VF-3 Viewfinders | EMA-1 Mic Adapter | Olympus FL-36R and FL-50R speedlights
