Olympus E-PL1 and the mZD 14-150

Olympus E-PL1 and the mZD 14-150

Here's another exaample of using this lens for all sorts. My favourite subject, cloud formations. I just can't help myself with these, I just always look up and if I see something unusual I'll snap away. My wife thinks I'm nuts.

Olympus E-PL1 and the mZD 14-150

Olympus E-PL1 and the mZD 14-150

And we're back to the E-PL1 and the mZD 14-150 again. I've been using this combination for all sorts of photography and it really impresses me. It's still fun to use, even after I've got the Sony Nex series with manual focus lenses. It's so small in the hand and is something you can carry around all day. To think you've got a range here of 28 - 300 in 35mm terms, it really is amazing. I don't think I want anything smaller than this though, it would then be uncomfortable to use. In other words it would be too small for me.

Voigtlaender Nokton 50 f1,5 for Nikon

Voigtlaender Nokton 50 f1,5 for Nikon

If you didn't know already I'm a big fan of Voigtländer lenses. Excellent quality and images look just as good as if they were taken with Leica lenses. The rendition is not quite as good as the Leica lenses but I'm not going to pay the prices that Leica are asking. Even the second hand market charges much more for Leica lenses than what the Voigtländer lenses cost new. Since I'm not a professional here, I really do have to think about money at times. I don't earn a penny from my hobby, I just take pictures because I like it. But...remember you can't take that money with you when they carry you to the graveyard.
One thing about these Nikon mount lenses is that the aperture ring is the other way around. Just something to think about if you're thinking about purchasing one. Does take time to to get used to it.

Voigtlaender Ultron 35 f1.7

Voigtlaender Ultron 35 f1.7

Another very good lens (if you can find one) is the now discontinued Voigtländer 35 f1.7. Much smaller than the Nokton 35 f1.2 and much lighter. Mine is in silver and looks pretty good. I'm not certain if you can get them in black, but that doesn't bother me at all. Again this image way converted with Nik SFX2.

Voingtlaender Nokton 35 f1.2 II

Voingtlaender Nokton 35 f1.2 II

Now this lens is something special. I'm not certain if you can see it at this size but I can definately see the 3D effect with this image. The lens is not small and is quite heavy. having said that, the finishing and quality is superb. ou really know you have a quality product in your hand. Just makes you feel that the images will be great. Looking at this image at print size, well, I could look at it for ages. This lens is something special to me and I bought it for the occations when I photograph aquariums and the like. This oportunity will be coming very soon and I'll post some images from my visit.

Pentax SMC 28 f2.8 on E-PL1

Pentax SMC 28 f2.8 on E-PL1

These lenses can be bought on ebay for next to nothing. This one taken with the Pentax 28 f2.8 is one of my favourites from last year. Converted with Nik SFX2 (which is fabulous by the way) it shows what this lens is capable of. I think one of my purchases for 2012 with be Nik Colour Efex. But the things are so damned expensive! I also wanted to upgrade to Photoshop CS5, but I bought a new computer instead for less, and my CS3 now runs very fast. No need for that upgrade. I think the pricing of these software packages if way too high. I think if they brought the price down, many more people would buy it and their base customers would increase, making them more money in the end. But maybe I'm missing something here.

Olympus OM 50 f1.8 wide open at f1.8

Olympus OM 50 f1.8 wide open at f1.8

This is an image made with the Olympus OM 50 f1.8 manual focus lens on the E-PL1. You san see the dreamy look you get wide open. Like I said, it's not unpleasant but I like my images to have more defined edges to then.
On another note, I wonder sometimes why I have these other cameras, I seem to be selecting a lot of images made with the E-PL1. I certainly seem to like it and it works wondefully with all these lenses. I suppose I'm just a camera junkie.

Olympus OM 50 f1.8

Olympus OM 50 f1.8

Another lens that cost me nearly nothing and it was the first manual focus lens I bought. You could say it was this lens (together with the Yashica 55 f2) that converted me to manual focus lenses. At f1.8 it has this dreamy look. Not unpleasant but I like mine a bit sharper with clearly defined edges. The next post will show an image with this lens wide open. It will clearly show what I mean.

Sigma 28 f2.8 Manual Focus Legacy Lens

Sigma 28 f2.8 Manual Focus Legacy Lens

Another super cheap lens in FD mount. These 28 f2.8 lenses were made by the thousands and can be bought in excellent condition for pennies. Just like this lens actually. I've got a number of these and the Canon and Pentax seem to be a tad sharper than this one. Not to say that this lens is bad, because it isn't. O lot of people on many forums really pixel peep the images they get from these lenses. I think they should just get out more and take some images.
It really doesn't matter what you take an image of, the importance is that you learn from those images, how your camera works with the lens and vice verca. Get to know your equipment and you'll be taking better images in no time at all.

Voigtlaender 85 f3.5 adapted for m4/3

Voigtlaender 85 f3.5 adapted for m4/3

There are some great bargains out there to be had. This lens which is now discontinued I believe, acts like a 170mm lens on a full format camera. I really need the IBIS with these longer lenses nowadays, I'm not as young as I used to be and hand holding these lenses is a real challenge. I cought this one from my balcony one evening not really thinking it would turn out into anything special. I like it.
