I have a horrible feeling that I will
15% off olympus gear @ digidirect..$678 for 75mm f1.8. Pretty much the best price I've seen, ever.
Damn you... been lusting after this for a while. I honestly don't know how much I'll use it.. but, but, but.
i bought one a week before Christmas, mounted it on my em5mk2, took a pic on instagram and have not used it since. I.. i have a problem....
Gotta resist the urge....300mm coming soon !!!!
I think I'll hold off for now as I love the output of the 45mm f1.8, but still rarely actually use it. the 40-150mm is obviously a LOT more, but I often wish I had a lot more reach for taking photos of the Mrs rowing etc. I'll just lust after that for now...
Edit; if you want to sell your 75mm though..........
Hey guys, what do you think between
25 1.8 oly and 17 1.8 oly.. leaning towards the 25 but Id love to hearwhat yall think.
I've always found 50mm a flat, uninspiring and difficult focal length to work with. I like 35mm though, and I love my 17/1.8
I would go with the 17mm. The build quality is superb and better than the 25.
Both produce decent images. But there's a lot of 25mm options around.
Get the 25mm Oly and the 14mm Pana for the price of the 17mm Oly and be happy like meezle...
5 finger discount? Oly 25mm is $349, Pana 14mm is $499, Oly 17mm is $459?
Second-hand discount; 14mm can be had for circa $150...
Oh wow, dat depreciation
Yeah, underrated for some reason (I think Panasonic used to throw them out with cheap bundles and it kind of set a faux-benchmark); great little lens mind you.
I sold mine here for $150 some time ago, but mind you this was before the au dollar dropping.
Thanks guys leaning towards the 17 now..
The 14mm was a "kit" lens with some Panasonic bundles... I bought a GF3 with the 14mm and the kit 14-42mm, I kept the 14mm and sold the GF3 and 14-42mm
Pana 100-400 review -
I'm about to upgrade my em-5 to an em-1 pending a bit of testing to see if my four thirds lenses focus speeds up significantly with pdaf instead of cdaf.
I only need a body but the best price I've seen is $1298 at digital camera warehouse (vic). A couple years ago i recall that the body + lens was cheaper (i think a friend bought an em1 with body, 14-42 + 45mm lens for the same price + cash back on top of that). I have seen that kogan offers it significantly cheaper but it being grey import and gerry gibbs even cheaper with a hld7 (supposedly because they separate it from kits). Can anyone suggest where i can get it reasonably priced (preferably with local warranty and in vic?)
For anyone using four thirds lenses - is the speed up in focus worth the spend? (i have two cdaf optimised lenses plus a third that isn't)
*edit* got advice from other forums and bought the e-m1
My E-M1 is back with Olympus for warranty. The back dial kept slipping and it would take 3 or 4 turns sometimes to get it to register. Apparently common issue from looking online...
Also put down if they can do a sensor clean at the same time.
