Dennis:I would really like to share the work we have done on our old and beloved GH4, to show what it still is able to achieve! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsQzEgiWoD8

Andrew:I built my own website to showcase my photography. I thought it would be relevant as it’s 100% micro four thirds. So perhaps if you have a slow news day it might be of interest to you. The portfolio and blogs are getting updated more frequently now and I’ve got a couple more blogs to get uploaded in the near future.

E-M1II earned the Gold Award at Dpreview

Dpreview published the full E-M1II test. The camera earned the Gold Award with the following conclusion:

The OM-D E-M1 Mark II is Olympus’ most ambitious camera yet and it blows away its peers in terms of raw speed – and it’s no slouch when it comes to photo and video quality, AF performance and build quality. The Mark II is customizable to the point where it’s overwhelming, so it’s not for everyone. It’s may also be a budget-stretcher for a lot of people. Aside from those and a few other quirks, the E-M1 II is an interchangeable lens camera to be reckoned with.

Explora published a short overview of all the accessories you can use along your new E-M1II:

Alongside the camera is a variety of new accessories to help photographers make the most of their equipment. Among these items is the STF-8 Twin Flash, the world’s first weatherproof macro flash. Constructed to be splash proof, dustproof, and freeze proof to 14°F, this flash will hold up in inclement weather just as well as the cameras. It also offers a twin flash design with adjustable ratios and a guide number of 27.9′ at ISO 100. It also has coverage for 12mm lenses on Micro Four Thirds format and works with advanced functions, such as Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing found on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

For adventurous photographers, Olympus has also revealed the PT-EP14 Underwater Housing, designed specifically for the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. This housing will keep your camera safe at depths of 196′ and it provides access to all camera controls. Other underwater items announced with the camera include the PPO-EP03 Underwater Macro Lens Port for Olympus’s 30mm and 60mm macro lenses, an Underwater Diffuser Plate for the PPO-EP03 Port, an O-Ring for the housing, and an LCD Hood for the housing.

A new HLD-9 Power Battery Holder is available, which makes vertical-orientation shooting more ergonomic and can hold an extra BLH-1 Lithium-Ion Battery for effectively doubling battery life. The HLD-9 also works with the AC-5 AC Adapterfor powering the camera with a constant AC source. A newly designed CBG-12 System Backpack is also available, able to hold two E-M1 Mark II cameras with battery grips attached, in addition to a 300mm f/4 PRO lens, three additional lenses, a notebook computer, and more. It also features a buckle and loop on each side for fitting a tripod and comes with two rain covers.

New Olympus 25mm f/1.2 and 30mm macro lenses reviews

FacebookShare

12mmpro

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm f/1.2 PRO lens got tested by Photoreview:

Subjective assessments of test shots showed them to be very sharp, even at the maximum f/1.2 aperture. The fast MSC autofocusing system and effective stabilisation in the E-MI enabled us to use the lens hand-held at very slow shutter speeds – as low as 1/3 second – and obtain a high percentage of sharp pictures.
Our Imatest tests showed the lens able to exceed expectations for the 16-megapixel resolution sensor in the E-MI with measurements taken near the centre of the frame. The highest resolution was obtained at f/2.5, which is 1.3 f-stops down from maximum aperture.
Some edge softening was measured at all aperture settings and depth-of-field was very shallow at wider apertures. Diffraction began to limit sharpness at f/11, as shown in the graph of our Imatest result below.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 30mm F3.5 Macro Review at Photographyblog:

For a small, lightweight and affordable macro lens that also does double duty as a (granted, slightly overlong and not particularly bright) standard prime, the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 30mm f/3.5 ED Macro is clearly an excellent performer.

Brad:Selfie Shooters in candid Camera…which is of course about shooting portraits on the street of other people taking selfies, it is a lot of fun and includes tech info as well. The important bit for this site is that all the pics were taken with the Olympus EM5 mk 2 and the diminutive Panasonic 35-100 f4-5.6 zoom.
