About this deal

This is the eighth frame of a ten-frame sequence, exactly half of which (the first frame and the final four) were sharp on the subject in the AF frame. That’s constant regardless of the focal length so you can get close in at 150mm to produce very shallow depth of field shots.

Excellent – The equipment should be close to being ‘Like New’ but there may be some small cosmetic blemishes that lower its grade. One aspherical ED (extra-low dispersion) element, two aspherical elements, one Super ED element, three ED elements, and one HD element are featured within the optical design to minimize both spherical and chromatic aberrations, distortion, and color fringing throughout the zoom range while also contributing to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. allows you to shoot in low light conditions and capture images with a shallow depth of field and smooth bokeh for attractive defocussed backgrounds.Whatever system you use, don’t be afraid of cranking the ISO, there’s no way around that in anything other than perfect light, and in my opinion people are far too fussy about a small sprinkling of noise (which is rarely noticeable in print). which measures 67mm in diameter 100mm in length and weighs 360g, significantly smaller and around half the weight of the Olympus. When attached, it allows camera rotation, eliminating the need to tilt the tripod head for switching from landscape to portrait orientation or vice versa. In the forward position the scale is obscured, you can still manually focus, as long as the camera is in MF mode, but turning the ring focuses by wire using the AF motors.

If you need help deciding which camera and lens combination are best for you, then why not check out our specially selected camera packages. Fast focus is essential for me because my subjects are rarely still, and catching the static moments seen in the pictures above took a degree of concentration – animals will sometimes only pause for a split second and I like to grab key moments as they happen. This also applies to accessories that are supplied with the camera including batteries which may have a lower optimum performance level/life expectancy.Now there's a Micro Four Thirds telephoto lens that brings out the absolute highest imaging quality the camera has to offer. This is mostly useful when shooting a movie clip with C-AF enabled, but the feature can also be used when photographing action. This lens applies the Dual VCM focusing system, an evolution of Olympus-original fast and quiet Movie and Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism. Both focusing and zooming are fully internal, meaning the lens' optics adjust within the constraints of its outer barrel, so the length of the lens remains the same regardless of zoom and focus settings.

Anyway, using my micro thirds cameras I can achieve the same image (in terms of depth and field and noise) by simply shooting a couple of stops wider. aperture is maintained throughout the focal range, a very useful feature and not just for shooting in low light. The Pro build quality, weather sealing, manual focus clutch, and an internal zooming finish this lens off nicely.Inside the dust-free and splash-proof lens body are a variety of specialized elements that feature the ZERO lens coating, including one aspherical, one high refractive index, and five extra-low dispersion elements for improved imaging performance. So while it may be harder to deliver very shallow depth of field effects with smaller formats like Micro four Thirds, it does come with the benefit of more forgiving focus. All Olympus Micro Four Thirds bodies employ built-in stabilisation with the most sophisticated five-axis system employed on the OMD EM1. I will probably post some more samples of both the 40-150 +MC-20 and the 50-200 + EC-14 in the coming days. Most subjects snapped-into focus more easily than before in Single AF modes, and upon examination the subjects were sharp at 100%.
