This Is Mzuiko

A very quick post to show how pleased that I am with my new Mzuiko 60mm f.28 macro. I am so impressed, completely overjoyed. Thank you Olympus, Thank you Mzuiko. I am impressed with the clarity, so much so that the crop of the fly has removed  three-quarters of the frame and is still clear, The depth of field is wonderful and far more intuitive than my previous macro set up, and of course using the OMD EM10 mk iii means that I have a lightweight camera for a lightweight lens. I am so stunned.

Going Fully Olympus (Almost)

I purchased the Olympus OMD EM 10 mk iii around Christmas, and I’m really pleased that I did. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, easy to use, good manual controls and I like the quality of the images. It is a touch noisy when shooting indoors in low light, but no more so than any other camera and better than many.

I’ve decided to trade in my Nikon D7100 which is heavy for me to carry with my neuro-muscular condition.

As the Nikon was great for macro with the set up that I had then I’ve brought the Mzuiko 60mm f2.8 macro, and if I find I want to get in closer thenI’ll buy a Canon 250d front end macro converter that works with Mzuiko.

I’ve also ordered the Mzuiko 75-300 which out performs the Tamron 18-270 that I had with the Nikon, so I’ll have the range of focal lengths that I want for events, especially airshows/sport.

There currently isn’t a teleconverter for this lens that I’m aware of, so I’m going to keep my Fuji s9900 bridge for birds, it’s possible poor quality but I get a few good bird photos from it.

If any one knows of a 1.4 or 2 times converter, from any brand, that’s compatible with the Mzuiko 75-300 then I would be grateful to hear about it.
