Was messing around scanning medium format film today, getting file sizes bigger than my Sony A7rii , 250mb plus tiff files...

Who needs digital :)

It really is stunning . . . my eye is drawn to the silvery water, then to the little house. Wonderful photo :)

Very nice! I'd be interested to see the colour version. Did you convert to grayscale in LR/PS?

What focal length was this taken at?

Seeing as how this is my camera thread, I should say that I ditched the lumix 25mm (50mm in full frame) F/1.7 and got the Leica F/1.4. A totally amazing lensafa20d349dd24874ed5f1c2aae2fc11d.jpg

I was fooling around with the Samyang 8mm/3,5 fisheye lens, the light pollution around here is terrible

Ah I've been considering that very lens. I'm looking for a nice wide angle lens for landscapes but wasn't sure if fisheye is what I want.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on that lens.

 

I just got my new lens! It's a 200mm F/3.5 Hoya lens from the old Olympus Zuiko OM film SLR mount...with a £15 adapter. The lens itself was £30 :)

First impressions are that the image sharpness in the centre is excellent with lovely bokeh on closer objects.

Probably a bit late to answer the first post. I became rather fed up of carrying a DSLR around. On that score I've had both of the usual makes but found that the Nikon D7xxxx to be the best all round camera but favoured Canon bodies from the control point of view. Nikon managed to produce better sensors than Canon who don't really offer an equivalent to the 7xxx range. The new D80 gets close and is small for a crop camera.

 

I bit the bullet and changed to M 4/3. I bought a used Olympus E-PL1 first to try it out. In some ways that model is a terrible camera but most owners learn to love it. Then came an E-P3, huge improvement even in terms of sensor performance. Many reviews knock the plastic kit lens that comes with these models usually because of the section in them that seems to be a rather loose fit. None of the reviewers noticed that it tightens up when the camera is turned on. It's actually an excellent chunk of glass. Then came an E-M5 followed by the E-M1. I'm totally sold on the format. All of these can be bought used for very good prices and it's possible to get shutter counts out of them. The E-M5 in particular is capable and also compact. That model uses a Sony sensor. ;) Buy a new MKII E-M1. Maybe but probably not. I still use the E-P3 at times and the E-M5 serves as a spare body. In some ways the E-M5 is my favourite as it's smaller and lighter than the E-M1.

 

Why Olympus - well initially Panasonic put out some poor quality lenses that were not up to the standard that the format can achieve. It gains because the format is smaller which effectively means that it can match the resolution of crop dslr's. I also appreciate the programmable buttons options Oly offer. The only problem with Olympus is that they have chosen to make their Pro lenses fast,heavy and rather expensive so in some cases I have bought Panasonic lenses. The other problem with both is macro work on insects. Something I like to do when I can. The focal lengths both makes offer are too short which means that the working distances are much too short really. I use the 75-300mm zoom lens with an achromatic close up lens on it to get round that and can generally work from around 300mm. Not entirely happy as focusing is difficult so plenty of shots get wasted. I usually take 3 or 4 and generally get 1 decent one.

 

I've played around with adapters and old lenses. More or less given up on it. Focusing is difficult and best achieved via a magnified view and the resolution of the lenses is not up to M 4/3 standards anyway. ;) I am a pixel peeper though. The problem with using a magnified view is the amount needed to get a near pixel level view, can't be too sure what's actually in the frame any more. I've mostly tried this with telephoto lenses though making it even trickier. I even tried a 500mm mirror lens. Also a 100mm Pentax macro lens using a magnified view.

 

There should be shots taken with all of them on here

However I also sometimes upload junk and may take 2 shots of the same thing if I think I am going to have dynamic range problems so one will be over and the other under exposed. I bought an 80D and Sigma macro lens purely for macro work but have had little chances to use it - just to see if a dslr offers any advantage. Also tried it for general work but feel it doesn't really offer any advantage over M 4/3.

If my Olympus E-M5 II didn’t break three times in a year, yeah, it’s a great camera.

 

But then it has seen some abuse.

When I returned E-M5 II, I couldn’t make up my mind between Fuji X-E3 and X100F - the former wasn’t released, so took time and shot film meanwhile.

hey, nice pics!

the samyang fisheye lenses are among the best and cheapest fisheye ones on the market, one of the lowest distortion in the class and great sharpness, low chromatic aberations, coma etc. - check out this review

I recommend it

you can always crop or de-fish it to certain extent in post process

@Mrboots2u how many cameras do you own now?

@Stanic I'm leaning more towards the Samyang 10mm wide angle over the 8mm fisheye. My zoom lens starts at 28mm full frame and I often find myself wanting quite a bit more wide angle than that (without wanting a fisheye).

20mm FF would be perfect, just don't have the funds for it at the moment.
