Cons:fire lever moves by itself. obvious distortion. Dark
Opinion:bought for its palious cost and negligible weight and footprint. For a picture of landscape in full sun is fine and makes up for the lack of a super-enlargement that you did not bring while this is in the pocket of the shirt and if necessary does its humble work. Of course, if you photographed monuments you will have to correct the distortions in PP
Opinion:Taken for the paltry price and arrived in the late afternoon I wanted to immediately try it out and I was disappointed immediately! I couldn't take a clear freehand photo except by raising the iso causing noise, from the despondency I would throw it! Then I tried to shoot with the help of the flash and things changed .... seemed like another goal, excellent! So I waited the next day with the sun. Tested with daylight is fine !!! For now (I'll update later) the downside is the diaphragm too closed and the lever of the focus variation that moves if you change it. From my point of view, I find sharpness better by moving to hyperfocal than to infinity.
Pros:sharpness, shooting field, limited deformation (can be a con), size, simplicity, focus, price
Cons:ad f/8 decidedly dark, focus lever with unsteady stills, with the small bodies of Olympus risk framing your fingers
Opinion:Olympus doesn't even classify him as a target, yet he manages to allow images of extraordinary sharpness (in my opinion). Once the focus stick is adjusted to infinity, just compose and expose, without worrying about sealing. Using it, I take care of three things. Do not touch the focus stick, which is not held firmly in the three preset positions (macro, hyperfocal, and infinite), and which normally adjusts to infinity. To keep the electronic horizon active, to properly align machine and horizon. To keep your fingers as far away from the lens as possible, so as not to photograph them. To my taste, the deformation imposed by the focal is not a defect, but a compositional element to have unusual images. Fixed f/8 diaphragm in practice does not get in the way that much. If anything, you need to adjust the shooting contrast, as with good light the extreme areas of brightness will be both present. In the end, I found out that this plastic thing is addictive...
Opinion:It is a lens to be taken as it was conceived without going looking for the fur in the egg. It is a fish with all the characteristics of this type of lens. It is evident that the quality is not comparable to much more expensive goals, but with a little care, good light, a flash shot, shooting in RAW you can get great results. It's also so tiny and light that you can always put it in your pocket. Should.
Pros:Smaller than two screwed filters, stick closure, feather weight.
Cons:As a habituation.
Opinion:Last Sunday I was at a public event, for a customer, behind the inevitable fence, in front of me a wooden leudo at the Old Port and I mount this lens to take two photos together. At that point from the boat they nod me, go up that our official photographer did not show up. When I'm on the boat I notice that the bag with the optics is left to my wife, behind the fences. So I did all the service from this boat, right above, in the middle of flags, sails, elbows, rigging. 9. The photos were liked. yes, I did a little PP. but sharp, balanced, I had remained in the same condition with a fixed of other focal would have been much more problematic. What to say, I bought it as a joke, saved me from a situation that could end not well. In other situations, easel and well in bubble, obvious not at night, from interesting architectural perspectives as well as rural or marine landscapes. Pretty shot colors and medium high contrast as I like, shadows a little closed and unworkable. But for 92 coffees, thank you for existing!!
