Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 Macro R LM OIS WR

Fujifilm has developed an exceptionally robust lens lineup over the last several years, but the one area that had been lacking was in a true 1:1 macro lens.  Fuji remedies this with their 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro, a lens with a slightly longer field of view than many macros, 1:1 magnification, an …

Review: Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS

Sony has been heavily concentrating on fleshing out the full frame E-mount system with quality lenses, which is something that they didn’t really do with their APS-C e-mount lineup. As such, less than two years after the introduction of the A7, the FE lineup has grown into a rather full featured system.  Today, I review …

Some Butterflies with the Olympus E-P5

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

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 …

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

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

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

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 …
