I love micro four thirds, mostly because I like to be able to go on my daily walks and take cool nature pictures without having to carry a super autist huge lens. Pics do end up looking shit at high ISO though.

>>3793320
cool picture but lower the ISO, I think there's also some colour banding in the sky, I hear this is common with MFT (kinda cringe) or maybe I'm just schizo perceiving it.

Is that vignetting from the lens or was it added in post? Does anyone have the exif for this image?
>>
>>3793384
this, 4:3 is god tier compared to golden ratio. I borrowed a m4/3 camera and really liked the framing.
>>
>>3793384
>>3796203
I crop all my raw files in post to 3:2.
And you're telling me this is bad?
In my defense, I often find that I get a lot of empty space in the foreground or sky that doesn't add any value if I keep it to 4:3, and it's super easy to get 6x4 prints almost everywhere.
I've come across one online photo print service that does do 8x6 prints though, but it costs more than 6x2.
>>
>>3796336
Crop 8x10. If anything, the problem not being able to frame expansively. It's part of the big dick large format look.
>>
>>3796336
>I often find that I get a lot of empty space in the foreground or sky that doesn't add any value if I keep it to 4:3
How is that even possible? 3:2 is the definition of wasted space and too tall, too wide. The only ratio that can even attempt a fight with 4:3 is 5:4.

I really want to get a macro lens, because of the kinds of photos I've been taking more and more lately (flower/plant close-ups).
I've been debating between the Pana Leica 45mm and the Olympus 60mm.
Now, the 45mm is more expensive, probably because of the OIS, but I have an Olympus body with the 5 axis IBIS, but it comes with a lens hood and bag.
The Olympus is cheaper, but it doesn't come with a bag/pouch or lens hood - that's optional extra. The other problem is that I have a Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN A, which has the same focal length and aperture.

The Panasonic seems like a nicer option, and it's a focal length I don't already have if I want to use it for general photography and portraiture as well. But it's expensive and I don't need the OIS.

>inb4 get a Laowa
Not having AF would be rather annoying for use outside of macro/closeup photos. At that point I might as well get a vintage macro.
>>
>>3796383
I find the opposite. 4:5 feels too cramped at times. To each their own though.
>>
>>3796393
It's all about the focal length. Wides are amazing and open, headshots and portraits I'd rather crop in from a 50 equivalent. Unless I'm going for that tight, compressed look with or without focus roll off of a composed scene, full body thing. With a wide, it makes it feel like you're in a room without anything looking off.

You're right though, it's way too tight at times. I mostly shoot square so I just take a step back and find the crop later so it's not as much of an issue.

For macro 60mm is fantastic. It's one of the lenses that catches your eyes and you just go into the system for it, it's just so good. But it has some really annoying usability problems.
Since you already have 60mm, maybe get Panaleica instead. You can also try and get Raynox 250 and try it on Sigma, or your other lenses first. In any way, it fits well on 60mm Oly to get higher than 1:1 magnification. Just know that you need 46mm to 43mm step down ring to use it on Olympus. Universal adapter that comes with raynox is good for 52-67mm threads.
60mm fits well on Olympus bodies, body stabilization makes it perfectly usable handheld in most situation. Know that you will get only get in cam focus bracketing with it on Olympus bodies. Same goes for Panaleica on Panasonic bodies. It's dumb thing that Pana and Olympus do to encourage sales of own lenses. It's still perfectly usable on Pana bodies that have ibis. 60mm has almost perfect corner sharpness even at f2.8, at time it needs to be closed to around f4 to really get rid of ca, and is usable up to f16. At f22, diffraction becomes a problem. It's pointy, and looks big on the body, but it is a very light lens. Perfect 2nd body while outing, you barely notice the added weight.
Negatives. Auto focus speed is abysmal, no matter the body. It can also hunt for focus on weaker bodies. It's better on pdaf cams, but still easily the worst of all my lenses for the system. It doesn't matter that much on macro, since you're mostly in MF, but it can still be annoying. You get a switch on the lens that lets you select focusing distance that helps with focusing, but it's not a perfect solution. MF ring is focus by wire, and not a good iteration of it either. On top of this, it's really battery hungry. One extra battery is almost a must on every extended macro outing with it. And it's also a bit flimsy. I banged mine, and had to have it repaired.
>>
>>3796492
Oh, and since you're asking for normal use. Auto focus, when put to infinity and 2m settings, the one intended for non macro use, is perfectly acceptable. It's will still be slow, but it will be point accurate there.
>>
>>3796492
>Raynox
Olympus make a macro converter which is compatible on 2 lenses I have, the 17mm f/1.8 and the 25mm f/1.8. I'm not too fussed on getting it though. Plus, I don't think it's true 1:1 macro.
>Focus Bracketing
As far as I'm aware, Olympus bodies that feature focus bracketing (not all of them do) are compatible with all AF MFT lenses.
Where Olympus has limited compatibility with non-Olympus lenses are:
Focus Stacking
L Mode "Pro Capture"
Sync IS

My camera has focus bracketing, but not focus stacking, so I'd need post processing software anyway. My camera also doesn't have Pro Capture or Sync IS (I think those are limited to the E-M1).
My camera also doesn't have weather sealing, so I don't need a lens that features it.
>AF
I've noticed that AF can be abysmal for close-ups on the Sigma, which is usually very fast. I have no problems with using MF for close-ups and macro.
>battery hungry
I've noticed that my Sigma has this quality to it as well, compared to hand Olympus lenses anyway. I'm guessing it's because Sigma uses a focus mechanism that activity holds the optic in place when powered on (which is why it rattles when the camera is off, not unlike the rattle of OIS mechanisms).
I don't really have much of a worry about battery life anyway. Most of the closeups I tend to do are of plants/flowers and I feel frustrated I can't get much closer with the prime lenses I have.
I typically go outside with 2 lenses in my pockets, and a lens on the body, and swap between them when I feel I need to.

I've been using vintage lenses for these sorts of closeups though, which is less than optimal, but having a minimum focussing distance of ~1m is not exactly ideal in all situations. I also sometimes get chromatic abberations on vintage lenses, something that could theoretically be solved with a speedbooster, but unfortunately, I can't find any for the lens mount I have lenses for. M-Mount is too small for a speed booster.

Like I said, Olympus f2.8 is fantastic. That's my go to lens. But honestly, Raynox - 250 is not that far behind. Olympus clip on lens is simple one element fore lens. Raynox is two groups, three elements. It transforms every lens you put it on. Quality will depends on original lens, but you have some really nice options on m43.

On lenses that need screw in ring, it stays on most of the day. Only if I find a really nice opportunity for infinity, I take it off. It's one minute to take it off, but I hate screwing it on. On lenses that can use snap on adaptor, it's very easy to take it off an on again, so I just put it in my bag and use it as I go.

I'll accept the aperture was less than optimal.
But I know what over-pulled shadows look like and this looks natural to me, especially compared to the conditions. The softness you're complaining about is probably diffraction from f/22.
I crop to 3:2 for print reasons though.

>>3796868
The fact the we live in the age of the mirrorless camera and custom crops still aren't a standard feature on all models is simply sad and pathetic. Even certain Nikon DSLRs had crop overlays in the OVF. Sony doesn't offer anything but 16:9 (lol) on many models, Fuji purposefully withholds most image ratios that are shipped in the GFX series, Ricoh removed 4:3 on the GR3 and Nikon segments the market by reserving 4:3 for the Z6 and 5:4 for the Z7.

Nah, there's pretty much no camera that can accurately depict a high contrast scene like this one. inb4 film gets 11 billion stops of overexposure without blowing the sky, that's true, but it washes all the colors out. Honest opinion? Don't shoot scenes like that at all, unless the sky looks more interesting and the silhouette is framed and composed to compliment it.

Took this today, first pic taken since september. Went out in what I thought would be the dark in order to test my new gear (headlight, tripod, gaiters, snowshoes) but didn't get to test the latter due to not deep enough snow. I realized that focusing in the dark is pretty damn hard, does anyone have some tips on how to handle that? Even if the sun was 30 degrees below the horizon in the opposite direction there was still some sort of light in the sky, idk what is up with that. Almost looks like this is taken just after sunset when it was in fact 5 hours after sunset.

My advice is - if your lens has an MF clutch, then engage it and focus to infinity and aim at infinity.
If your lens is focus by wire, then engage MF and turn the focus wheel as far to the direction of infinity as you can and then aim at infinity.
MFT lenses, particularly wide angle ones, don't have too long a hyperfocal distance for this. You will, however, miss focus regardless. My advice is to just accept it and enjoy the vista.

I like M4/3 for the most part but the crop factor is rather unfortunate. I have a fetish for adapting old lenses and it's kind of a hassle because 50s become 100s and the adapter also adds a sizeable chunk to the length of the lens. I did get this body very cheaply however so no complaints.

>old lenses
Yeah, I'll say this - mounting an old 25mm Zeiss lens and it turning into a standard lens on MFT is nothing short of weird.
However, I will say that using a 135mm lens on MFT is way less of a problem.
However, adapting M-Mount to MFT doesn't have the "big adapter" issue, and the short flange distance also helps a ton. Plus, old Leitz/Leica lenses were much more contrasty, so work well with focus peaking.

That's not how the naked eye would see the scene, and overall it's pretty unnatural. The problem is that there was almost no sun shining on that area, the sun seems to have pretty much have gone down, and the shadows boosted that much just look fake. It would look a lot better and more convincing if you picked a time of day or year when the sun actually shone on that particular surface of the earth, rather than relying on the digital meme about +100 all your shadows.

Tempted to get a MFT. If I'm used to a normal Nikon D5500 crop sensor, would this switch take some getting used to? How different is it?
>>
>>3799325
I'd say the jump would be about as dramatic as you switching to a Nikon Z crop, like the Z50.

MFT is a smaller sensor, but it has very high pixel density. The bigger issue would be more getting used to an Olympus or Panasonic UI. If that's not your thing, then you might as well stick with Nikon and move onto Z mount instead.

I have an Olympus an I literally want to kill myself.
I want a Fuji so bad, I hate this fucking tiny sensor and dead brand. My f1.8 lens looks like a fucking phone and at night it needs ISO 3200 that is noisy as fuck.

Fukcing give Fuji now please.
>>
>>3799476
lol I have both fuji and olympus and enjoy them both in different contexts. i did own a fast f/1.2 lens and it was "fun" to shoot with everything so fucking blurry, but that got boring real fucking quick and did zero to improve my photography.
>dead brand
its not like the lenses and bodies explode and stop working. i'm collecting out the rest of the line dirt fucking cheap as chumps dump their shit on ebay. the glass and bodies are terrific unless you're one of those meme chasers and mtf chart wankers.

Olympus 25mm f/1.8
I just think it's really neat.

I wanna buy a super telephoto real bad, but I can't because money. I'm making do with vintage lenses that are super-telephoto, and trying to cope with the less than perfect manual focus and severe chromatic aberration of bokeh (it's as if background objects just turn into a mini visible light spectrum, and the focus peaking thinks the chromatic aberration is the high contrast area).

Why? They're pretty much equal in light gathering. Fuji gets larger sensor, Olympus gets faster lenses. What I do like about Fuji is it's contrast on the lenses. They're very punchy, old leica like. Olympus goes for sharpness and colour almost too much.

How can you tolerate using Olympus Workspace? It keeps encountering "unexpected errors", and it loads image previews like garbage.
Despite using a Lightroom like UI, the sliders feel so depressed.

Luminar 4 is much nicer to use than Olympus Workspace, and DxO Photolab is pricey... but god... it's good.

The only thing that Olympus Workspace seems to do is read hidden EXIF in raws like the in-camera aspect ratio (if it's not 4:3) and some things like if you used anti-shock/silent shutter or multi-shot.
It's not stuff you'd miss when using other software.

Workspace is great, but has two weaknesses. It compresses jpegs, and always sharpens images on export. There is no way to turn sharpening completely off with it.

Is it normal for 80s vintage super-telephoto lenses to give really soft results?
I know the pixel density of MFT makes it less than optimal, but it's been low cost to adapt this stuff than get native super-telephoto.

They are soft. No way around it. Images can be sharpened more with aggressive large radius high pass sharpening, but you can't expect miracles.
Soft lenses aren't necessary bad. They can be really useful for certain things and styles.

The problem was more using a 300mm lens with an unknown teleconverter of some... variety.
It seems impossible to accurately focus the lens in this configuration, as the image is always soft no matter what you do.
Also, foreground and background bokeh seem to break up into their constituent light waves with this setup. It's far worse than your ordinary chromatic aberration and purple fringing. Twigs turn into a yellow and purple blur.

The magnification is pretty significant though. Could be more usable for video rather than stills.

The telemacro capabilities do seem rather interesting though.

But using this vintage lens just makes me want to get the Olympus 300mm f/4 more and more. In part because AF just makes photographing fast moving birds way easier, and in part because the sharpness and Chromatic Aberration issues are nonexistent with that lens.
