Just a few shots to demonstrate the high ISO capabilities and the dynamic range.


First off a night shot. Olympus OM-D, 45mm f1.8 at f 4.0, 1/125 and ISO 25600


Posted Image

And then a 100% crop

Posted Image

Then one at f/2.8, ISO 200 and 1/8. Handheld. I took 5 shots between 1/8 and 1/10 handheld and they all came out sharp. Pretty amazing. Yellow street lights by the way.

Posted Image

And 100% crop. This is actually underexposed by around 2 stops.

Posted Image

And finally to show the dynamic range. Shot with the 12-50mm kit lens at 14mm, f/8, ISO 200 and 1/320

Posted Image

And after post processing in Lightroom

Not very scientific, I know :)

Re night shots, 5-axis IBIS really works! :D

Sure does. Not so well at shutter speeds of around 1/100, but otherwise excellent.

I like the 2nd night shot Hampus. It might even convince to buy the 45. And by the way I've shot at 1 sec handheld using that IBIS.. It is just amazing!

I have to say that I remain always stunned at the rendering of the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens. It has a draw that remains me of the best Carl Zeiss lenses, and it delivers in such a compact package! Sharp wide open at f/1.8 in both pictures below, and the bokeh is just fantastic.
You can play with select focus in MFT format , yes!!!

I agree, it is a fantastic lens, and so good that the price is more than OK. I bought the expensive hood, too, because it can make flare and ghosting, but certainly not more than others, I am just "a flare/ghosting hater" :) (I know how to work around it, but better want to use my time on composition)

Just played with the reflex Nikkor 500/5 via Novoflex. Well, IBIS still works, but easily "lets loose" because shake amplitude becomes excessive. A tripod barely helps. Resting against sth and firmly holding the lens works best. A sturdy tripod would even be better of course.

Note: of course I had set the FL manually.

I mean 500/8 of course (I could not find the 500/5 in my favourite shop in Ginza)

Which would equal 1000mm f/8. That's a decent focal length for your everyday "peeping tom" needs :D
