  • Fun with the lens simulator

    So, I was on the four thirds lens camera combo simulator thingy, where you can see what lenses look like on different cameras. I actually didn't know it existed, but it was linked at 43rumors. Thought it would be fun to see what the (full) 4/3 300 f/2.8 would look like on the GM1. Selected the paring, and the following picture appeared (it defaults to a front view):



    I got a chuckle out of that. Where's the camera?



    There it is.

    Kind of a fun tool to play with if you're avoiding sleep for some unknown reason like I am. http://www.four-thirds.org/en/special/matching.html

    This is perhaps the best argument I've seen for the colored bodies option for the cameras (other than for pure fashion). If ever ask yourself "Now where did I put the camera?" you can tell that it's attached to the lens.

      It would be even better with the Sigma 300-800.

        Certainly, didn't think of the Bigma when I made my comment :-)

          That would be Sigmonster.

          The proper naming convention:
          50-500 - Bigma
          500-800 f/5.6 - Sigmonster
          Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 - Sigzilla



          Note: I did just try out the 500-800, which I had forgotten was available in 4/3 mount, it's even better.

            Of course it would look like a monster on almost any camera body.

              Thanks for the corrections. I was really only familiar with references to the Bigma. I've never seen any of those three "in the flesh," myself.

                Pity the simulator doesn't include legacy glass so you could stick a real telephoto on it.
                It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
