Olympus really does need to get its butt into gear, & update the lower tier bodies with a more modern AF system. Selling expensive, high end gear to the faithful, is not a sustainable long term business practice, unless your name is Leica. Or similarFYA. I still get the issue on the replacement lens. Issue is also present on the store's demo Em10iii but not on the Em1ii.
Only bought the one I have now because it was going for $400 after taxes.Thanks for the illustration. Looks only ~10% bigger than my old Super-Takumar 50mm/f1.4. Might be a lens I'm interested in picking up once cheap examples start to filter onto the used market.
It's already happening, as I got one for $350 used off FM forums (vs $460 with tax at current instant rebate price). It was in pretty much new condition, too.Might be a lens I'm interested in picking up once cheap examples start to filter onto the used market.
You missed my earlier post about this, 46mm is fine. I use two step downs to 46mm as a short permanent lens hood.Experiments: I think it could actually use a 55mm to 46mm step down ring (something I'll have to buy later) and a thinner lenscap like the LC46s which I personally prefer. That entire assembly would be smaller and share filters as well as shade a little of the element.
I only started to pay attention to the 56mm f/1.4 after getting one for a good price. Good to know that it can be used that way without having to do some experimentation.You missed my earlier post abput this, 46mm is fine. I use two step downs to 46mm as a short permanent lens hood.
He he he. 11 weeks post op, got the green light to get off the crutches, & go 100% loading on the hip. Taking a little bit longer than I thought, physio & specialist tell me the thing that I need to work on the most, is my patience. Pretty happy now thoughYou're awesome.
I think your recovery time is going to be about half the average person.
No I didn’t got a lemon... I have been using this lens with a used GX-9 recently bought with no issues at all. It seems that Oly AF system is fairly inferior.Hi. I was very excited about this lens that I've bought one just as it became available. I've been using it on my E-M10 and although the IQ is superb and the bokeh excellent the autofocus is not. Using it in dalylight @ f/1.4 (with an ND8 filter) the AF hunts quite a lot, struggles and fails to focus so many times that I'm missing a great deal of shots. This has taken me by surprise since everyone says AF is precise and lightning fast...it's not, at least in my case. It's simple the worst of all AF lenses I've ever used with this body. Please don't tell me I need a camera upgrade... Any thoughts? Did I got a lemon? Thanks in advance.
