About this deal

One big advantage is that the Sigma has a rubber seal on the lens mount, and is rated as dust and splash proof. lеnѕ hаѕ bееn buіlt wіth thе Місrо Fоur Тhіrdѕ саmеrаѕ іn mіnd аnd fеаturеѕ а ѕmаrt dеѕіgn tо lіvе uр tо thе bеаutіful, rеtrо-ѕtуlеd ОМ-D аnd РЕN ѕеrіеѕ аѕ wеll. With a 112mm equivalent focal length on m43, this is the closest competitor to the Olympus 75mm f/1. I am the one who dubbed it “X-Slow 1” in my review and I am not the only one who had issues with that camera. Didn’t want to spoil your enthusiasm, but the fact is that the OM-D is not even close in high ISO performance to any of the newer FF cameras I know of.

So 50mm was standard (what you see with your own eyes), 28mm – or now 24mm – is wide, and 200mm is long. There are three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements that correct aberrations and Olympus''s ZERO (ZUIKO Extra-low Reflection Optical Coating) lens coatings minimising ghosting and flare. Capable of delivering an attention-grabbing shallow depth of field when shooting portraits, and attractively defocused surroundings, the M.And your shots a while ago with the 75 Summilux were also awesome I know you like 35 and 50 mm do you own anything in this focal length ?

After reading what you’ve said about the Sony so far, feels like we’re at a point in time where IQ at relatively low/normal ISO levels (say to 6400……………6400! The prints are sharp, and detailed (eith proper technique, tripod use, good lighting, low ISO, optimum aperture, etc. aperture really helps to keep the ISO low and minimize noise, which can help when shooting a smaller sensor camera.

I agree it is not the ideal lens, and it was not particularly easy to work with especially in locations with tight space, but when it worked, the results I obtained from the 75mm F1. I made an assumption that I would achieve approximately fast enough shutter speed (1/100sec or faster) to shoot the portrait hand-held. Steve, I’ve been following your site for years and haven’t left a comment, for some reason, until now.

It’s hard to argue with the flexibility of a zoom, especially if you’re used to shooting with zooms. Again, the 75mm points directly to the realm of baby and toddler photography; combining its long reach and fast aperture allows for intimate, natural scenes of young children doing their thing. I find that it’s a great walk around lens – paired with a wider lens, of course – for getting close to sunsets, and shooting little details off of buildings.

It won’t beat a dedicated macro lens, but for casual use, this is a great way to do some macro on the cheap.

It was a ridiculous focal length to use for a casual shoot (I am not talking about shooting food professionally, that is a different story), considering the super tight space of a typical cafe restaurant here in KL. The only ones talking smack about the OM-D these days are those who just hate it for its sensor size. lens is simply my favorite in the system due to its great sharpness and beautiful background rendering. I’ve heard others say that printing this large with the OM-D wouldn’t be an issue, due to the advanced sensor (not to mention the very high-quality optics of Olympus (and Panasonic for that matter)!
