Shattered Glass:After reading your blog and watching many of the videos you share, I thought I might send you a video of mine dealing with the SLR Magic 12mm and 25mm Hyperprime lenses. I’ve seen next to nothing about the 25mm on YouTube, and on my video I shared your post about the SLR magic being sharper than the Nokton Voigtlander. Anyway, I hope my video can help out:

Ivan: Hi there! I made a short clip using with GH3 and Fujian 25mm 1.4 CCTV lens. With some work in post this combination gives you vintage, almost anamorphic feel. Given the price of the lens ($20 on ebay) I think everyone should have it. Here’s the video:

Edward:Thought I’d share my set of pictures from the new Sigma 60mm 2.8 “Art” lens. Previously I have owned the first gen 19mm and 30mm 2.8’s and were very impressed with all their lens qualities but found more suitable replacements in the shape of faster f stop options. This lens however is a real keeper as it’s quite the alternative to the 75mm 1.8. I’m a professional that has made the switch to Micro Four Thirds in a big way. All I miss is the slightly more instant shutter release and the battery life. The IQ absolutely surpasses my Canon 7D.

Jerry:Its not a rumor, its bug in Olympus E-PL5 when you shutting photos with hi aperture value (for example F12 in A or M) with flash, the live view shows totaly black picture (doesnt simulate flash). Its almost impossible to make composition… I think the problem also exist in P etc. but its mostly visible in A or M. View on the screen should simulate all conditions also flash should be simmulated. Im still waiting for any feedback form olympus tech.

Joe:I don’t remember if I ever shared this, but I shot this with the GH2 and the Olympus 45mm. Lit with a Profoto in a medium softbox camera right out the window, as well as a Profoto in a stripbox camera left for rim. You can see more of my Micro 4/3 work at

Don:more ep5 shots

    Jerry: Your EPL5 dark screen at high aperture setting with flash sounds like a connection problem, or maybe a settings problem. My EPM2 works fine at high f values….it sounds like the lens is not keeping the aperture blades open on your camera before you press the shutter; perhaps you should try cleaning the lens/body contacts and try again?

      Simulating flash realistically is impossible with current tech, but you CAN get a usable image on the LCD regardless of exposure settings by enabling “Live View Boost” in the settings menu.

    “Doesn’t simulate flash”? I don’t think any live-view EVF has ever claimed to simulate flash. How could it?

      to support this feature, we would need some kine of 3D rendering

    Jackar 34mm ƒ/1.8 Review by the Phoblographer just posted today:


    Wow… ePhotozine really liked the G6. And for the price, it is a camera to get. Question is, how long will it take for Amazon or B&H to get one? Late June will probably be late August for us in the states.

    • Yeah lots of people on flickr talking about upgrading to the G6 from older Mft cameras :)

    Interesting read on the 1/8000s shutter claim. In simplified marketing terms, Samsung indeed is the first to do that with NX20. I remember they had another model with 1/6000s.

  • Interesting lens, this 60mm f/2.8 from Sigma, I just wish more of the photos were shot wideopen where it counts(the full and halfbody shots, not just closeups).

  • MarcoSartoriPhoto

    Ulli, you asked me for a photo taken with SLR50mm f0.95 wide open, here it is, RAW out of camera.

    Thanks Admin for the Flickr shout out! I hope many readers will join.

    • wow you still remember, great sample, indeed as i expected this 50mm has cool bokeh rendering.Thanks Marco!

    This DigitalRev video is a Waste of time, shoddly shot, pointless and so.. well .. whatever. Ar least their sponsor, KLM will be happy.

    • I can’t imagine saying to watch Alamby is a waste of time.

    • Anonymous

      Ha …DigitalRev is great …maybe pointless to you but relevant to many who like a honest opinion on photography gear …as evidenced by the sponsorship by KLM and Cathay.

  • Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you advise
    starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Bless you!
