Some Butterflies with the Olympus E-P5

Butterfly - Olympus Pen E-P5 with Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro

I have the Olympus E-P5 in my possession for review at the moment, and on Friday, I had a chance to give it a great workout in the macro arena.  I took it to Franklin Park Conservatory to get some butterfly shots, and the camera performed well.  I used the pop-up flash for lighting (I …

Quick Test – Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro vs Fuji 60mm f/2.4 Macro

Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 R Macro and Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro

Last night I decided to do a quick test between the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro on the OM-D and the Fuji 60mm f/2.4 Macro on the Fuji X-E1.  Both are the same focal length (but give a little different fields of view due to the different sensor sizes), similar in aperture and both are macro …

Butterflies!

Butterfly - Fujifilm X-E1 with Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro

I’m working on a rather long in-depth post at the moment, but it’s going to take me a day or two to finish it up.  In the meantime, here are some butterflies, taken at the Franklin Park Conservatory, here in Columbus.  Click to enlarge:

Fuji 60mm Thoughts

Those Eyes - Fujifilm X-E1 with Fujinon 60mm f/2.4 R Macro @ f/2.4

It has been an insane few weeks.  Working on my house in the evenings and work during the day, I’ve had very little time to shoot or write.  I just wanted to post a few thoughts real quick on the Fuji 60mm f/2.4.  I got the 60mm f/2.4 after sending back my 18-55, which had …

The Photographer’s Eye

The Photographer's Eye - Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro @ f/9

I have been sick the past few days, and last night, I had the urge to shoot a little, but I sure as heck wasn’t going anywhere.  So, I tried ‘self eye macros’, which aren’t particularly easy.  Luckily, the OM-D and 60mm macro have pretty good autofocus, so I set up my camera on a …

Review: Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 Macro

Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 Macro

Quite a while back, Olympus hinted at their first true macro lens for Micro 4/3…the 60mm f/2.8.  It’s taken a while to come to market, but it finally saw official release this past September.  I was lucky enough to pick one up shortly thereafter.  Olympus priced this lens competitively, at $499, coming in well under …

Grains on a Petal

Grains on a Petal - Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro

I know it’s been a long time since my last post.  I have been swamped at work and have had very little time to shoot or write.  I forced myself to take a few pictures today, though.  My wife had gotten some flowers a few days ago and I used them as a little subject. …

Quick Test: Olympus 60mm Macro vs Olympus 12-50mm Kit Zoom

Olympus 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 and Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro

I’ve had several requests over the past few weeks to compare the new Olympus 60mm macro to the relatively versatile Olympus 12-50mm kit zoom that’s available as a bundle with the OM-D.  The 12-50mm is an interesting lens. It’s got a wonderful range, from super wide to medium telephoto, plus has a macro mode that …
