    Lens Topics Re: Well, I did it!

    Hi John,
    No, I think the Canon and the Metabones adapter will have to make room on the shelf. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.
    This lens is just so good!

    Sure is. Took me a year to decide to take the plunge. ;)

    Had it out in the field in Hungary over the weekend. Not much to shoot. Everyone has moved on I guess. Couple of conclusions, or should I...

    Camera Topics Re: Always late to the game

    I loved the E-M1! The Mark II is more versatile, maybe more "professional", and it is even more suited to my needs, but the Mark I is a very capable camera. I would have no problems switching back if...

    Astro photography is one of the MOST difficult kinds there is! The problem with focusing is that the slightest turn of the screw will move the focus by light years! Add air into the equation and you...

    Yeah, focus-by-wire.... I hate it! Did you try turning focus peaking on. It helps... MF at night seems really touchy because you notice the slightest differences that might not be noticed during the...

    Hi Yvonne,
    The 14-54 is an excellent lens that gives you wide angle, light telephoto, and set to 25mm, a tool for making panoramas, like this one taken in, well, shall we say moderately horrible...

    Another, this time I set the camera to 8fps, silent shutter, and just held the button down (iPhone) while I turned the focus ring by the lever. Works perfectly, much faster, and less chance of...

    LOVE the High-Res feature. Combine it with focus stacking and some real fun is on the docket.

    Camera Topics Re: What planet have they been living on?

    Agree with your setup suggestion, though I prefer the IQ of the 14-54 II over the 12-60. The 14-54 can also focus really close and performs well up close, sort of medium macro range. Add an EC-14 to...
  14. Lens Topics Re: metabones & canon 400/5.6 purchase question

    Hi John. Usually not, but if I do have time I might touch up the focus a bit. I use S-AF/MF. Usually I use single point dead center, and try to get it on the eye, but the camera sometimes finds the...

    John,
    If you can get to a computer that does run the Metabones update software, I would reccomend going back to v2.1 or to v2.6. I found 2.2-2.5 all to be buggy. But then, if it works, and you are...

    Absolutely correct!
    But it is NICE to have the option of using bigger, higher quality lenses on the mFT system if one WANTS to. Every time I stick my Canon 400/5.6 out the window I am reminded of...

    I think I got "telecentric" confused with something else.... sorry... not getting any younger.
    So a telecentric lens is basically one that has larger rear elements that send the light more or less...

    I suspect that is because of the lack of PDAF in the E-M5.

    I was under the assumption that practically all lenses with the exception of macro lenses were telecentric. Why was ASP-C never telecentric? I don't see what the crop has to do with it. Please...

    Good luck!
    There is little to know about the adapter. All you have to be careful of is loading firmware. They have very careful instructions on that. Otherwise, plug it in and go. Nothing to know,...

    For sure. No moving parts. No glass. Unless it has been bricked, no problem.

    That is a good point. The difference between the 1.4x II and III Extenders is not SOOOO great, especially on the 400, but it is big with the 2x. Canon made some real progress there. The 1.4x III...
