Of course the camera's built-in corrections take care of much of this, though with a bit of strangeness.

On top of these, it’s also weather sealed, which Olympus are market leading for, so I don’t need to worry about the conditions I’m shooting in (useful in Britain…) so the only thing missing is lens based stabilization, which as I have inbody 5 Axis isn’t an issue (again, Olympus are market leading in this area! Photojournalists, landscape photographers, travel photographers, and passionate photographers who like taking photos in the rain will all adore this lens. The lens is capable of various styles of macro shooting and includes support for Focus Stacking which is useful for close-up shooting. When I review lenses, I usually go and say something along the lines of “Modern lenses are good enough, nothing to see here, let’s move on”.This lens will help you capture stunning close-up shots of insects, leaves and flowers and other small objects. The 12-35mm has internal stabilisation so if you own a Lumix body the lens might be the better choice. Manual focus clutch lets you quickly pull the focusing ring into place for direct, intuitive focus control.

The only other control is the L-Fn button, by default set to halt AF, but programmable via the camera menu to a wide variety of alternative functions. The image quality of this lens is so good that I often don’t miss my prime lenses unless I want a faster aperture.First, this is about the best m4/3 lens I've tested to date in its center performance, and pretty much across the board in both focal length and aperture. The lens also features ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, thoroughly eliminating ghosts and flares for clear depictive performance even in difficult conditions such as backlit scenes.

This might be a deal breaker for some Panasonic camera users (Olympus uses sensor-based stabilization). The Panasonic’s performance is a bit more even as the lens can get slightly higher results on stopping down – it seems you should simply choose an option you personally care more about. By the time you get to the 40mm telephoto end of the lens, things have reversed into about 1% pin cushion distortion. Nottinghamshire based creative, with a focus on branding, digital and print design alongside photography. With the higher end mu43 cameras, these things are fast, and what you lose in terms of stealth and lens markings, you gain in terms of blazing AF speeds.As appropriate, we shoot these with both full-frame and sub-frame bodies, at a range of focal lengths, and at both maximum aperture and ƒ/8. The lens construction integrates one aspherical ED (extra-low dispersion) element, two aspherical elements, one DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) element, two extra-low dispersion elements, one HD element, and two HR (high-refractive index) elements into its design to minimize aberrations, distortion, and color fringing throughout the zoom range while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. Pro II lens is a lightweight, fast focusing, and durable lens that deserves to be on your OM System OM1 camera. The compact, lightweight focusing unit consisting of two cemented lenses is powered by a linear motor driving MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism, resulting in high-speed, silent AF. I think it's a very nice option to have and I can imagine that many photographers don't need an extra macro lens.

Pairing with a dustproof, splashproof, and freezeproof camera body makes it possible to continue shooting in punishing environments such as rain, snow, and dusty environments with peace of mind. PRO lens is engineered to meet every need of professional photographers, especially together with a compact, lightweight design. If you’re shooting on a Panasonic body, the Panasonic lens probably gets the nod simply because it has OIS and the Olympus does not. Moreover, it appears that the aperture blades in my sample have just a tiny bit of a joint point in them, as I can see that the circle has two distinct "points" on it as I stop down. The lens is clearly underdesigned with electronic correction in mind and for that, it is way too expensive.rеѕult оf thіѕ іѕ thе flехіbіlіtу tо ехреrіmеnt wіth mасrо рhоtоgrарhу аѕ wеll аѕ mаkе uѕе оf іtѕ 0. The Panasonic seems a little more “balanced” between it’s wide and telephoto ends in terms of sharpness. Instead this is provided by the camera body, in this instance the excellent 5-axis system in the OM-D E-M1.
