More Praise For the Micro Four Thirds System
Monday 19 November 2012 — Category: Equipment
Micro Four Thirds (µ4/3) camera system. The first article, written by amateur photographer Jim Huffman — published on the Steve Huff Photo Web site — is entitled: How to tweak your Olympus OM-D E-M5 to shoot sports.
Mr. Huffman, who has been shooting with Nikon equipment for over thirty years, was so impressed with his newly acquired Olympus OM-D E-M5 µ4/3 camera and lenses that he decided to sell his entire Nikon D3 system and go exclusively µ4/3! I especially appreciated his tip on how to set up the use of the LCD screen and viewfinder in order to conserve battery power — I immediately adjusted my E-M5 with the same settings. Be sure to read the entirety of this informative article.

In the article describing my µ4/3 lens kit, I briefly mentioned a Malaysian photographer, Robin Wong, who has written some reviews of Olympus µ4/3 equipment, and taken some awesome photos to go with the reviews. If you haven’t seen them yet, be sure to check out part one and part two of his Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens review — the photos are amazing!
Part one was pretty nice, but part two is a breathtaking must-see! For those photos, he took this lens mounted on the new Olympus PEN E-PL5 camera to the annual Hindu Deepavali “festival of lights.”
What’s even more amazing than Mr. Wong’s amazing photos took is the fact that, even though the 17mm is a very nice lens, he didn’t particularly care for it, and had to struggle to take pictures with it. Despite his difficulties, he created stunning images which many of his readers praised as his best ever. Give yourself a treat and check them out for yourself! I wish I could take photos as nice as his with a lens I liked, let alone a lens I didn’t like!
