Nice, Mawz. I just love the quality that people can coax out of a $99 plastic lens!


It's one of the best consumer lenses in its range, hard to believe it's so much cheaper than many lesser zooms.

The 40-150 is impressively sharp especially on the shorter end.

Re: the 40-150, is it possible to repair the mount on this lens? I dropped mine and broke the mount (the screws broke through the eyelets). Other than the mount, it seems fine.

I guess that sending it in wouldn't be worth it (considering the price of a new one), but is there any DIY solution? I would guess that I would have to source a new lens mount (hopefully metal) somehow.

Not worth it IMO.

The sharpness of the 75 continues to amaze me. Here's a 100% view of an image unsharpened. The 75 is sharper than all other m43 lenses according to DXO and Photozone. It would be interesting to see how the Nocticron compares to the 75. I can't wait for DXO and Photozone to review and rate the Nocticron.

Has anyone ever tried a C/Y Zeiss 60mm F/2.8 Macro, on their m43 camera?

I'm interested in doing a lot of studio still life and flower photography and I think this might be the ticket.

I haven't actually tried the native 60mm F/2.8, but I'm not too happy with the manual focus implementation on native lenses (at least, for macro work), and I use manual focus a lot when I get very close.

The C/Y will be about the same price as the Oly 60mm would, and it would be better for manual focus, and also have a unique look, I think.

The 1:2 magnification of the C/Y should be plenty close for me, especially given the crop factor.

Right now I am using Micro-Nikkor 55mm F/2.8 AI-S, but focus ring is in very bad shape.

Have been meaning to shoot this spot for some time. The conditions were right and I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Comments appreciated!

Any reason why you dipped to ISO 100?

At smaller apertures, the Rokinon loses sharpness, and I wanted the longest exposure possible given the light to soften up the water flow. Can't use an ND filter on the fisheye, and the Institute closes at 6:00 so that was as little light as possible. Should I not have?
