Oh! btw do post some shots(mundane ok) showing what you think the photos(unprocessed) should look like...that way I can learn some tricks from you!...and also help you decide if the E-P3 can actually satisfy your needs...faster! Don't wanna lose a friend to the Nex crowd..lol..

An observation of m43 system...past remarks...generally true(unless shown to be otherwise...)...circle of confusion taken into consideration...open to the floor...

Any m43 lens shot at any aperture has DOF 2-stops deeper than a full-frame(35mm) equivalent field of view lens shot at the same aperture. To be practical, let's avoid diffraction by keeping things hunky dory at f8 or less(numerically...or larger aperture) on a m43 camera.

For example, a m43 12mm lens shot at f4 has about same DOF as a full-frame 24mm shot at f8...

It's one m43 system advantage for deep DOF shooters...On the other hand background(or foreground...) not so blurry or creamy for the wide-open enthusiast...the Nokton 25mm at f0.95 is just like my 50mm FF at f1.9...

3D stills?...

Not even reviewed in dpreview...

It's one of the scene "SCN" mode option...fully auto in exposure(speed vs apert), metering and AF(no selection option)....

No Raw...

When ready to shoot...
Press shutter button half-way and get a focus confirm light...
Fully depress it to shoot but hold button down! You'll get a ghost image...now move it horizontally(Not rotate...) left or right(only about 5mm...) and camera will take a 2nd shot automatically.

Scene should preferably be still as camera will not confirm 2nd shot if too much differs!...(like bracketing for HDR...)

LCD shows a busy sign for couple of seconds...

Gets a 3D labelled image but camera LCD cannot deliver the effect...It's apparently an MPO format file that can be viewed on 3D glasses enabled display units or future soon to be mass-produced 3D displays(no glasses required)...like my son's Nintendo 3DS that does the same with 2 built-in sensors and display it on-screen!.

Sorry I haven't viewed my 3D shots as of yet...


Did check...no 3D movie with kit lens!...(Panasonic's 3D lens has 2 eyes...)

Bundled software is Olympus viewer 2...Extracts a jpeg from the MPO file when transferred to computer. That's it apparently...

The stereo pair in the MPO file is meant to be displayed only with the right hardware...conversion to anaglyphs or stereo jpeg pairs->3rd party free software I guess...

3D images very new to me...don't even own the simple red-green glasses...truth be known...like anything else in a short time it'll be everyday conversation if it catches on...kinda fuji's territory at the moment...

A rare view of the LH-48 lens hood...



Have not seen one 'live' as of yet...any day now

Shows that it is secured more in the fashion of a steel band pressed tightly on the edge rim of the Olympus 12mm f2 ED...by tightening the screw...

Olympus would like you and I to buy their metal cap LC-48 too...I, however, skimped on that one since a fairly nice plastic one is included with the lens...

Part of the fun of photography is appreciation of the tools/machinery...in this case, the genuine leather body jacket CS-30B for the Olympus E-P3...

I chose brown to go with my black Oly...matter of taste..

The two improvements/changes I've noticed with this new body jacket is that 1) It has also done away with the four 'tangs' or studs at the bottom and 2) securing bolt also has a pre-drilled thread for tripod attachment...something missing from the body jacket(CS-10B) for the E-P2!

The LH-48 hood did arrive today...however the much desired PRF-D46 protection filter was still not available from Olympus!...try asking, I did, and camera stores around me does not stock any 46mm filter as of yet...neither the 37mm for my kit lens...

Ebay does have the Kenko UV Pro1D for the 37mm and Kenko (clear)Protection Pro1D for the 46mm and the choices are basically just that at the moment...

Yap, long time no chat. How's the ep3? Bet you are having great fun with it,my friend has one and l must say that it's so much faster then my ep2.

Well, I have bought myself a 45/1.8 and the 20/1.7........beautiful lenses, now I'm saving my money for the OM d.....are you going to upgrade? I feel that the om d really do look like my om2 n and with the inbuilt viewfinder my legacy lenses will see more daylight...take care and happy shooting, will post again when OM d is in hand...wwwooooo!

Michael
