Comment on Olympus 25mm f/1.8 vs. Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 by Andrew http://admiringlight.com/blog/olympus-25mm-f1-8-vs-panasonic-leica-25mm-f1-4/#comment-208888 Wed, 30 Jul 2014 18:36:23 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3314#comment-208888 I’ve found the same thing regarding contrast and color. I find the rendering on some Olympus lenses to be too pale.

The PL25mm and the Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 seem to share similar contrast and color rendering properties. I strongly prefer photos taken with these lenses over photos taken with my Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8, 25mm f/1.8 and 45mm f/1.8. My suspicion is that it has to do with the different types of coatings they use.

I do find the Oly 60mm f/2.8 renders quite beautifully. I’m also a fan of the Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 fish-eye.

Comment on Review: Sony a6000 by Jordan Steele http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-sony-a6000/#comment-208887 Wed, 30 Jul 2014 18:33:55 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3718#comment-208887 No menu digging necessary. If the rear wheel is active all the time, you have aperture on the top and shutter speed on the rear wheel (you can switch these if you choose). ISO is accessed by pressing right on the 4-way then adjusting with the rear wheel. (or whatever button you set ISO to…it’s the right direction by default). It’s not as easy as with a camera with dedicated dials, but it’s not bad.

The app as a whole works pretty well except for the odd ‘exit then go back in’ behavior much of the time, but that does it when it thinks too much.

You get a tiny bit more resolution out of it due to the higher sampling, but overall it’s, again, a competent lens, but not an outstanding lens. The NEX-6 was used for that review, but the conclusions are valid on a 24MP sensor as well.

Do you find it easy to adjust the exposure triangle with the available buttons/dials? Or do you have to do a bit of menu digging to say adjust ISO in M mode.

Comment on A Quick Walk Around Ohio State by Ian http://admiringlight.com/blog/a-quick-walk-around-ohio-state/#comment-208799 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 05:13:34 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=1785#comment-208799 I am currently a student at Ohio State and am working on making a landing page to sell t-shirts of an organization I am starting called ‘Columbus Love’. Ohio Stadium is very special to me and I would love to possibly use your Ohio Stadium image as the background of the landing page. The mission of ‘Columbus Love’ is to bring students and fellow residents of Columbus, Ohio together to appreciate the fine arts and culture that Columbus has to offer. I would be willing to compensate you as needed as I have not found an image that fits into the mission of Columbus Love better than your Ohio Stadium image. Thanks!

Comment on Review: Sony a6000 by pbass wil http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-sony-a6000/#comment-208682 Sun, 27 Jul 2014 01:33:25 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3718#comment-208682 Good review and even better sample shots!

One thing I’d add to your “Cons” (Pros & Cons): Sony’s got a ways to go to catch up on the breadth of lenses — at least half-way attainable non-Zeiss ones.

I’m currently on Olympus, and own every single focal length of lens I want, none costing over $1000 (most much less), and all are _excellent_ and of either quite fast or very fast aperture.

They’re getting better for this APS-C E line, but I’d still like to see a more complete selection of native fast AF primes that don’t cost a kidney or a first born child.
