Two fabulous-performing lenses that are tack-sharp at f1.8. You have to get the 25/1.4 lens too!

I had the 25 when it first came out and loved it but then I moved back to Canon. Now I'm going to go om-d for the non-sports/wildlife pics. Time to grab another 25

I am so looking forward to the new Zuiko 12-35/2.8 lens and their pro-grade/high-end OM-D E-M1 to be announced next month.

Did you use a flash on the bee image or is that natural light? Very nice.

natural sunlight. I don't have a decent flash for the EM-5, I intend to get a radio trigger for the canon 430EX I have. I have a remote IR trigger which to be frank is useless in bright sunlight.

From the Kansas City Ethnic Festival


First 3 are from 45mm 1.8




These are from 12-50mm. Not bad for a kit lens

juju, your macro work with the 12-50 is outstanding.

the images on this page are with the 75 + extension tubes. Others are with the 12-50 which I do find adequate for macro. I do get a bit frustrated getting so many out of focus shots. Contrast focus does not work well for small dark insects on brighter flowers. The focus as designed does go to the higher contrast flower rather than the insect. In manual focus which is the only way round this, I prefer the longer EF 100mm f2.8 , where I can rock to and fro to get the focusing more precise. It's all fun and if not a challenge it would be too easy

I always lose the sharpness of the eye when I resize it to post. Can anybody help me in the processing of such images where eye facets are clearly visible instead of getting smudged?

I am far from an expert.
As for the eye of the fly? Do you use noise reduction at all. If so when ticking the "remove jpeg artefacts" can cause smudging big time, if there none to control.
Just one thought of many possibilities.
I think it best if you explained what your process is to get a web size, that is a good starting point.

On Friday I picked up the 60 mm macro at my local camera store. They had it for the discount price of $399. I am concerned that my version of the 60mm is faulty. It is my understanding that when in 1:1 mode you have to be in manual focus mode. When I put the camera into manual focus at 1:1 all I get is highly contrast screen on the LCD and no matter how much I turn the focus nothing happens. No focus. In all other setting the lens is great. Very high IQ and great focus. The only way I can focus in 1:1 is to move the camera back-in-fort until I get focus and then jam down on the shutter release. Is my version of the 60mm macro faulty or am I doing something wrong?

Any advise would be helpful. I have to be able to put the camera and lens on a tripod and be able to either auto focus or manual focus.

Thanks,
Aaron

I crop the image taken by my 12-50mm to 1000 pixels on long side. Tried 'absolute sharpening for web' script or photoshop sharpening tools to sharpen, still loose the detail in the eye which is there in the original image at 100% view. No noise reduction either in the camera or during processing.
Can you please let me know your workflow to web size? Thank you.
