Comment on Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS by Zach Wagner http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-fujinon-xf-10-24mm-f4-r-ois/#comment-214314 Mon, 27 Oct 2014 23:54:20 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3369#comment-214314 Where do you get your info? Just curious. In comparing technical reviews from 2 sites, photozone and lenstip (lenstip is one of the best technical lens review sites, but they didn’t have a review for both lenses), the distortion (speaking geometrically) is worse on the Panasonic. Not too much worse; the Fuji runs around -4.62% and the Panasonic clocks in at -5.24% (at the wide end of course). However, vignetting is worse on the Fuji to be sure, with the Fuji putting in a pretty much abysmal showing at -1.93ev, with the Panasonic tossing in a much more respectable -1.2ev. Fuji does a little better with CA, except at small apertures at the 24mm setting (a bit odd).

At any rate, it seems to me that the Fuji and Panasonic are in pretty close company as it relates to distortion.

Comment on Review: Olympus M.Zuiko 12mm f/2 by John http://admiringlight.com/blog/olympus-m-zuiko-12mm-f2-review/#comment-214274 Mon, 27 Oct 2014 14:04:22 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=599#comment-214274 24mm and 35mm (equivalent) lenses have a significantly different field of view. I think that should be the deciding factor for anyone looking for a lens. I have both the Olympus 12mm f/2 and the Panasonic 15mm f/1.7 (and the Olympus 25mm f/1.8) and to me they are not interchangeable.

At least on my version (8). While I have yet to use this lens personally, if you take a look at the review over on Lenstip, they show comparisons of raw and jpeg distortion, and the distortion in the raw files is significant.
I don’t use Lightroom anymore, but I’ve read you can’t turn off distortion correction that is being applied due to information imbedded in the raw files. In C1, you can.

I think it’s important to recognize this type of thing going forward with lenses, as more and more often manufacturers are relying on software to fix what would otherwise be a more difficult manufacturing task. While I’m generally okay with this philosophy, many aren’t, and certainly an argument can be made that to pay so much for an instrument that in itself is poorly corrected is a bit hard to swallow.

That all said, I’m excited to receive my copy of the lens (I just ordered it) and enjoy its merits, through software or otherwise.

Cheers.

In the full size image the background isn’t razor sharp, but it’s sharp enough for the effect that I was after, and I was much more concerned about the majority of the foreground retaining all the detail.

Comment on 12 Lenses Spanning 50 Years Do Battle by J0k3R http://admiringlight.com/blog/12-lenses-spanning-50-years-do-battle/#comment-213990 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:45:40 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=286#comment-213990 Hi,
What adapter do you have for the Petri lens?

@Harald
FD lenses have a little rotating pin at the bottom. When it is not moved, the lens stays wide open, but you can control aperture when that pin is moved. Some lenses, like Canon’s FD 50 mm f/1.8 are unable to lock in that position, while some other ones can – I have a 35 mm f/2.8 Elicar which I can lock into the aperture control position. Look at your FD to MFT adapter – you will probably see a screw that would actually allow you to control the aperture bo locking the lens’ pin in the correct position.

Comment on Review: Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8 Makro-Planar T* (Fuji X) by Richard http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-zeiss-touit-50mm-f2-8-makro-planar-t-fuji-x-mount/#comment-213959 Thu, 23 Oct 2014 03:43:28 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3669#comment-213959 The review talks about how the 50 compares to the 60 in working distance at 1:2, but how do they compare at 1:2 in terms of sharpness, contrast, and bokeh?

You have a great composition there. How far in to the scene did you focus to get the maximum depth of field? Does the 1/3 into the scene rule of thumb work?Focus peaking doesn’t work well with this lens in my opinion because everything seems to be in focus.

Thanks.
