Unless, you want to spend $500+ on a lens.
Looking at the picture, there’s no f1.8 on the aperture ring, that means I’d have to step down to f2 or f2.8.
Review says it’s sharp, if you step it down. Haven’t seen any pictures taken with a micro 4/3 camera and that lens. Their sample pictures, you can’t zoom in. That’s the only way to know if it’s soft like my YI.
Cons – Very stiff focus, nervous bokeh, a little ghosty wide open, overall not as sharp and not as much contrast as slightly more expensive lenses.
According to this. How much is the slightly more expensive lens? That should be $20-$40 more. But preferably no more then $10 more.
Don’t shoot at F1.4 with that lens, look at her lips, soft. And the hair on the other side is out of focus.
What does very stiff focus mean? I can make something in my pants stiff. If that means it’s hard to move the focus ring, that’s fine with me, that means it won’t get out of focus easily.
It does wonders at f8 outside. That would kill my flash’s batteries. Not that I care, I have plenty of batteries. They say Rokinon is better. Not seeing a 40mm+ from Rokinon.
They do say it’s just as good if not better then vintage film lenses. Another reason I should sell my expensive adapter.
Yup, the focus ring is stiff. No biggie. That’ll keep her in focus.
Nowhere near as sharp as a $900 lens? Really? That’s pretty bad then. It costs $119, and can’t compete with a $900 lens, what a rip off.
You’ll hallucinate if you look at the spiral on the sharpness image. Somehow it’s moving.
The $900 is sharper in the center? is that even possible?
f4 to f8 is the sweet spot.
If I had $500, I could buy a Fujifilm camera. I like their name, Fuji. The 4k is useless on that, 15 FPS. Not even 30. You have to pay over a grand for good 4k. Why does Fuji have to cost more then Olympus and Panasonic?
How the fuck do you control bokeh anyways? Other then changing the aperture? Some of my pictures don’t have much bokeh, and the aperture was f1.8.
There’s a Rokinon 50mm f1.2, but it’s $300. Might as well spend $50 less on the Olympus, with auto focus. Kamlan 50mm f1.1 might be sharper wide open, costs more though.
And the Rokinon is sharper in the corners. But that’ll cost you. 7artisans is sharper then the Kamlan in the corners.
Looking at their $900 lens now. You can’t zoom in, you’d have to buy the picture. Is it illegal to buy it, and then share it with everybody for free? They have freebie images. And her face is soft with that lens too.
Well, I might not know what soft is.
Look at the JPGs, not RAW, and you’ll see the lens is probably just as good as the 7artisans. Guess I don’t need to buy it then. Probably noise or something on their faces.
That means I can buy a switch, I don’t really need. A long ethernet cable to the AP works fine.
