I'll follow your "a little different" with some photos of my own.

This is my new passion - woodworking. Putting the finishing touches on an oak and maple chest (still have to make the lid, but it's mostly done).

Surprisingly, the E-M1's autoWB acted just like my iPhone 5's in this shot - It's in my garage with evening sun shining through, but both cameras chose too cold of an autoWB -- "Sunlight" did the trick, though, and nailed the correct tints.

Nice pictures and very nice chest you have made. Woodworking is one of my hobbies as well. I do like the mortice and tenon joints (really a variation of mortice and tenon that I haven't seen). It looks like you put it together without any hardware and just glue--very nice.

First outing with the Sigma 60mm F2.8

I am extremely impressed with this lens and see why the MTF measurements rival the Oly 75 1.8.

It also focuses pretty close. All are just light adjustments in post. Almost all were taken with a B+W TOP Polarizer so the saturation may seem high.

Did I mention it focuses close for a non-macro?

This is uncropped on the flower. It also focuses really pretty quickly and silently. I was able to nail the swan above an this biker below very easily with AF tracking

Thanks Steve and yes, only glue (so far) - I might have to reinforce the side rails, as they're only sitting in a groove and I have to attach handles somehow (no confidence in a long grain to end grain glue up).

As for the variations on the joinery, that's called me "winging it" I was following an actual plan, then veered off and started doing my own thing.

I need practice on my joinery, but this was my first project really using it, so I'm sure I'll get better. I will say, even with sharp chisels, cutting through red oak is like attacking steel with a wet noodle.

That's quite different to the DXO tests/reviews:

For whatever reason dxo somehow gives a higher sharpness score for wider aperture lenses. If you look at the sharpness field maps, they're about the same at each aperture with perhaps a slight advantage to the Sigma which reflects the Lenstip graphs.

According the DXO Sharpness Field Maps, the Olympus 75 has a slightly darker green than the Sigma 60 across the frame at all apertures, from f2.8.

I was looking at it from my phone so that may be the case.

Time to upgrade to an iPhone Air with 4.7" sapphire crystal display.

I was playing with it a bit today and I'm not sure if I should trust these field maps. For example on the FE35mm F2.8 lens, it gets less sharp stopping down? This makes no sense to me.

Can you post some "actual pixels" crops, unsharpened, from some of those Sigma 60mm pics? Thanks.
