As promised, an E-M5 + Canon 135L shot:

3200x2400 version (external link)

Same procedure as previous sample--Raw, IrfanView used to extract JPG preview, no further processing. Normally I'd add some contrast and saturation to this photo among other things, but I wanted to show results as-is using Natural picture mode. She was about 12 feet away and background was another 15 feet or so behind her.

I have a lot of respect for photographers who learned their craft before autofocus. This manual focusing business is rough!

Beautiful results! Love that creamy bokeh. Did you have to lock the aperture before you removed it from a Canon body?

I shot it wide open at f/2, so I didn't lock the aperture on a Canon body beforehand. I kinda don't trust that workaround--sounds sketchy and likely to break something eventually. Just me being paranoid :lol:

little creek I found at the bottom of the hill at work today. It was a hellova hike to get to it too (had to go down there anyway)

OMD 45mm 1.8 with a CPL and F16 about 2sec shutter ISO 200

If I may asked, which EOS adapter did you use? I keep hearing some brand has a very tight fit. I want to make sure I bought the right one. Thanks

You made me dig deep into my notes to find this post I wrote a few years back (external link). There's some good info there (if I do say so myself :)) about the adapter. It says "RJ Camera EOS-m4/3" on the adapter, and I bought it from an eBay seller named "jinfinance". Unfortunately my quick searches there showed up neither the seller nor the exact adapter I have. The fit is tight but in a good way. I don't feel like I have to exert unnecessarily strong force to mount or dismount it.

Edit: found jinfinance but they don't seem to have the EF to m4/3 adapter:

They have a tilt adapter though, which sounds intriguing.

Thank you for the thorough reply. The Rainbowimaging EOS adapter (external link) seems to have a good review in Amazon. It's only $22 shipped now. I think I am going to give that a try.

I just want to thank everyone for this thread!!! A few years ago a POTN member told me to think about the M43 systems. Back then they really weren't all that great. The last couple months I've been having much more trouble shooting with my 60D and lenses, then three weeks ago I found this thread and the link to the mu43 forum.

I thought about it a lot and finally last week bought one from adorama (who sent me a very nice "sorry this is out of stock" e-mail, but then 5 hours later must have gotten a shipment since they shipped that same day!

Well I was worried about doing this switch, since it's kind of forced on me due to health. But I must say even with the kit 12-50 lens this OMD is amazing! I've shot over 1000 photos since last thursday night and I put my stuff up for sale. I do worry about missing things I love about the 60D but what I'm gaining vs what I'm losing makes it ok.

Problems so far (may get better as I learn more about it)
-AF seems to pick what it wants. I set it for center point and it'll still look around a bit
-EVF makes me a bit car sick if I'm wobbly or in the car (I shoot when my husband drives when we go on vacations)
-AF in video mode hunts too much

What I really like
-the weight- holy cow what a difference, it was hard for me to hold at first but after a day or two it's great
-easy macro on the kit, macro with the DSLR is tricky for me due to not holding still easily, but with the smaller sensor I have more wiggle room
-can't wait to try the primes if the "crappy zoom" is this good!
-I have it with me every day, so I don't miss any shots!

I can get shots that look like they were taken with my 60D, but it's harder to do it. I'm hoping as the camera gets settled in I'll get it to feel like second nature.

Here is my test page if anyone wants to see
http://www.pbase.com/g​ardengirl13/omd_test_ (external link)


Again thank you to everyone here! I really didn't want to have to go down to a p&s due to my health, I think it may have made me not want to shoot anymore. Now with the OMD I feel like I can keep doing this and be very happy about it! (now I just need to sell my 60D and lenses so I can afford to buy a couple primes!!)

yeah. I LOVE that show. I think it's my favorite of any TV show, ever. It startles me sometimes because I think I'm the only one who thinks a certain way, then Shawn will say something almost exactly like I do. My husband always teases me for saying "nip it in the butt" instead of bud. I tell him it makes more sense that way, then Shawn said it in one episode and we both looked at each other and cracked up. This has happened many times! I swear the writers have my house bugged.
