Look at a selection of camera lenses for the different Bokeh it can create on the micro 4/3 system using adapters. Lens and Bokeh can change dramatically from lens to manufacture.
Hi, Thank you so much for your great reviews and lessons. In your video about bokeh you were talking about the Leica Sumicron 50mm f2 as the best choice but it's a manual focus lens. You said that it can be used on a MFT camera by using a Leica adapter. I am realy bad at manual shooting but you also mentioned something about the focus peaking. Could you please explain how this function works. I've just bought the Olympus Pen F. Does it have focus peaking? How does it work on manual focus lenses?Also the f stop on the Leica lens is f2 so it will be equivalent to f4 on a full frame camera, when used on a MFT camera, so how could it give such a great bokeh with f4 on a MFT camera?I also have an Olympus 75mm f1.8. How do you compare that to the Leica Sumicron on a Pen F.Kind regardsArdavan
Hi Ardavan,Thanks for taking the time to post your questions, and I do hope I can help answer them. With regard on Peaking, take a look at my other video on YouTube that shows myself setting up this function on an Olympus Pen-F camera.You are correct with regards to the f2 equivalent on a 35mm format. Its just Leica glass is far more superior in my opinion, and has more rounded aperture blades that results in better looking bokeh more creamier.The link is https://youtu.be/hp2SKYmK2Xk
Hi Robert,Thank you so much for your email and for giving me the liknk to your video about the focus peaking, it was great.Kind regardsArdavan
Hello sagain Robert,I have some other questions.1- What type of lens Novaflex adapter is the one you use with your Leica Summicron lens to attach to your Olympus Pen F?I ha checked the Novaflex website but there are 2 types on says Leica M and one says "M39 Leica screw". When I was watching your video I noticed that it says E39 on your Summicron.2- I have seen a Leica M fit Voigtlander that is 50mm f1.0. I was thinking if I use a Leica adapter on my Pen F to attach this Voigtlander, I will get a 100mm f1.0 equivalent with a Voigtlander quality which would be really awesome and even faster than the f2 Summicron and also cheaper as well. What do you think of that.3- If I use a Nikon adapter to fit my Nikon 50mm f1.8 to my PenF, again I'll get a 100mm f1.8 equivalent lens on my Pen F. What are your thoughts about that?4- I have many of the top Olympus lenses including the 75mm f1.8 and I'm not worried about the costs, so, would you really recommend that I sell my Oly 75mm f1.8 and buy the Leica 50 Summicron, is the Leica really that much better on my Olympus Pen F? As I know it is really awsome on Leica M camera but maybe not as awsome on a different camera.5- my last question is what you think about the Micro 4/3 Samyang lenses?There is for example a micro 4/3 fit Samyang 50mm f1.2 lens that costs £299. That would fit my Olympus Pen F and give me an equivalent of 100mm f1.2 which again is faster and cheaper than the Leica Summicron.In your video you clearly rank your bet portrait lenses as:Number 1: The Leica Summicron (You say that it really outperforms the Voigtlander.number 2-: The Voigtlander.I have seen your videos and read your articles and seen your website and I truly believe that your an excellent and very knowledgeable photographer, so I would really appreciate your advise.Would you really recommend that I sell my Oly 75mm f1.8 and buy a Leica Summicron 50mm and the Novaflex adapter for my PenF, if money was not an issue for me. Is the Summicron that awsome again on my Pen F and that much better than the Oly 75mm f1.8 on it?With kindest regardsArdavan
