About this deal
Another advantage of the Sigma is a slightly higher magnification, because it focuses much closer than the Olympus (84cm vs 50cm MFD). aperture is great for indoor portraits where light may be at a minimum or where you have moving subjects that are hard to freeze in your frame. women tend to use wider peripheral vision, so a woman’s ‘normal’ view as she looks ahead would approximate to what a slightly ‘wider’ (shorter focal length) 40mm or 35mm lens sees.
Jack I nearly bought the X1 Pro but ended up skipping it and straight to the x100 for that very reason. prime lenses, then you should seriously take a look at the Olympus Portrait Lens kit where they bundle the Olympus 45mm f/1. Well, in the days of film – when cameras used 35mm movie film, until digital shooting came along – a 50mm lens was considered a ‘standard’ or ‘normal’ lens, as it gave (gives) a view roughly the width of what men see when looking straight ahead .With a 112mm equivalent focal length on m43, this is the closest competitor to the Olympus 75mm f/1. But if you look at M4/3 and the OM-D as a tool that can do anything the big guys can do then it is not expensive but inexpensive. It won’t beat a dedicated macro lens, but for casual use, this is a great way to do some macro on the cheap. But after a couple months even that felt big so I bought the X100 Black Edition and freaking love it.
Ever since they had kids, those three or four times a year have become a valuable chance to catch up with and get to know our nieces and nephews.For all this lens’ incredible technology and specifications, this manual focus ring could use some work. I’ve used about every size of sensors, and owned a few FF (still have a M9), but no matter the size, what is important is the colors, contrast, skin tones, definition… And there, the OM-D is sky high. ED MSC (hereafter just referred to as the 75) is one of the final confirmations that Micro Four Thirds has finally come of age.
even after breathing on both ends of the lens; really needs nylon stretched over it to soften it – a la 1940s Hollywood – or a little Vaseline on the lens! While I did not post a real portrait of a human yet, the couple I did post of the Monkey show the qualities of this lens.Knowing this, and knowing my potential subject matter, I went on the hunt at Christmas time for the ultimate portrait lens in the Micro 4/3 system.
