YI 42.5mm F1.8 Lens on Olympus OM-D E-M10

I’ll have some pictures taken with that lens on my camera soon. It was cheap on eBay, and I saw some pictures taken with it, then realizing I had to have it, at least for a little over $100. It was used once, it says. Glad they didn’t like it.

That’s the same reason I bought a manual lens I have, but getting that in focus is a pain.

The YI has auto focus. It has no manual focus on an Olympus or Panasonic body. I probably can’t even update the firmware on the lens. Or does the firmware live on the camera? There’s separate firmware for their camera and that lens on their site.

It’s better then a Nissin Di466. Uses less batteries too, and might be slightly smaller. Pictures were taken with the Godox flash and a MagSphere, with the flash pointed slightly up.

I bought it from B&H Photo Video.

Think I like the pictures with the flash in manual mode better. No idea why the camera can’t get the flash right. I only get it right, because I take more then one picture.

The lens was a Panasonic 25mm f1.7, at f3.5 and some at f4.5. I could use no flash, but I like the colors with a flash.

I don’t know how they made a better flash, that’s slightly smaller then the Nissin, and uses less power. Maybe you have to change the batteries more often. I use rechargable batteries, so it doesn’t matter to me.

If I sell the Nissin on eBay, I’ll be getting a nice picture of it. Need a way to prop it up though.

The two brighter ones are at ISO 800.

The background on the picture of Tonka looks odd, might be because I was standing in the kitchen, which has a different kind of light.

If you edit the pictures of Tonka, they look fine. Use Perfectly Clear in AfterShot Pro. But the noise removal blurs out the carpet as well. I don’t have a Neat Image license for Windows, don’t know if it would do any better, maybe.

Update
Neat Image has better noise removal, it doesn’t blur out the carpet.

There’s the fixed image of Tonka. As long as you save the RAW file, you can most likely fix the image.
