I'll take your word for it mate - though I'll need to get to grips with it when I get a couple of M42 adapters for my old lenses which I'mm quite keen to try now but I still haven't given all my MInolta AF kit a real try out yet to see what's worth keeping - e.g. now got 3 AF lenses at 70-300
Many thanks for taking the time to comment, it is very much appreciated, a shame maybe a few of the other 56+ views couldnt have had a small input, but still, never mind, will soldier on, and hopefully improve along the way.
I know what you mean - the problem I find is that when you see loads of views and few comments the overall impression is that coments would have been negative.....
Anyhow - I'd be perfectly happy to have taken any of these shots (FWIW).
Regarding sharpness - even viewed larger those shots look o.k. to me - at least at web resoloutions so what's your perceived problem ? - I appreciate that it can be quite subjective but if you're not "pixel peeping" what's the problem ?
I was one of the 56+, but I was in a bit of a rush...and see, I'm back to comment now. I've just started posting, so equally, I like to get feedback good or bad, and it wouldn't eaxctly be fair if I didn't do the same
I like 1 & 5, epescially 5. I think the composition is very good, and I particularly like the way the rubber-ring thingy is virtually exactly in the middle...it's like a target sight.
Like I said, I like 1, but I think you could have made more of the fence by standing a little to the left or right...probably left, because you'd be pointing more towards the lightsource if you moved to the right (and you'd probably get more flare or overexposure.
Thanks Paul, yes a 450D, yes it is a bit tricky getting the focus right but I do like being able to see the F stops manually on the dial, hoping the 50mm will be sharper but I might have to get a canon 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 if second hand
The Zuiko 50mm F1.8 is very sharp. I've also got FD versions of both the Canon 50mm F1.8 and the F1.4. I can't tell the difference (other than the F1.4 is faster) between the three of them to be honest.
