Hi,
I use a Oly -330. This was the first DSLR with Live View. The Live View Modi has a 10X magnification. Manual Focusing is easy. Not good is the Crop Ratio 1:2, for wide angle photos. A 20mm lens will be 40mm. If you use Tele lenses is the Crop Ratio good. A 200mm lens will be 400mm.

Regards
Imre

VGR - what a great set!
Now only thing that I need is a Peleng 8mm, but is terribly expensive in Poland (above 330 ). Probably I'll import this lens from USA, where is much cheaper (~250 including shipping and pay-pal costs). VGR - how much it costs in Belarus? This lens is great for 4/3 system - it gives the field of view about 160 degrees (diagonal) without black corners Cool

In the Belarus new Peleng costs $300

I want to buy too Wink

The prices have risen earlier it cost $100 Crying or Very sad

Thanks for the answer! 300$ = ~203 . It isn't a big price for such wonderful lens! Unfortunately I live in western Poland so travel to Belarus is quite expensive Sad
By the way - in the past Peleng costed 100$... I'm shocked Very Happy

VGR, Is it possible for you to design and manufacture Contax/Yashica adapter for Nikon bodies? I know that there would not be inifnity focus, but for some uses it would be great (portraits with 85/1.4, 135/2.8, etc...)
how about Exacta adapter to Nikon/Canon body?

I think you would be able to use those lenses only as macro (real closeup, detail), I don't think you will be able to fit a whole face in the frame in correct focus.

Does anybody have any examples of the Peleng on 4/3? Or a link to some?
I find I am looking at the idea of a 4/3 as a second/third body.
I'm always very impressed with the RAW file quality I see from friends 4/3 cameras.

I have with 18mm Olympus and 17mm Tamron SP, but don't have with any fish eyes.

Hi, this is my first post. Have enjoyed reading many posts as a guest.

Can I use a third party 2x tele converter, like Vivitar or Koruna (sp?), instead of Olympus OM 2X-A with OM lenses on my E-500?

Thx, JCG

Jes, I'm reasonably sure this little pic made from a 1.2MP camera
didn't influence you in any way:



My e300 cost $215 ($205 + $10 shipping) and came with 3 batteries and
a charger, all paperwork and software, original box, not bad for an 8MP
camera!

I think you will like the e300! Smile

Hi Bill, It has taken me more than one year to decide to go for the Oly, because the 2x factor was frightening me, but at this time I've gotten a nice E-330 that it's making me happy... And yes, your picture influenced me for sure Wink. Many thanks!.
The 2x factor is not so dramatic. I still keep the Pentax and the Sigmas, so I can live with it.

After a really long wait, I've just received a Dandelion XXX adapter that I'm trying to figure out how to use. The programming instructions are very clear, but they don't give any clue of the mechanical part.

It comes with a set of 8 screws around the adapter, and no instructions at all of how to place the different lenses.

It seems not so easy to use, specially without instructions on the mechanical part. The posts in this thread have not helped me too much in figuring out how to place it on the lenses.

Why there are two different kind of screws?. Which ones have to be selected for a particular lens?. In which position?. How to get the adapter properly centered and the lens secured?.

I tried a 70-210 Pentax-K Vivitar and I could barely fix it. Not knowing what to do with the protruding lever. With the Minolta MD 50mm 1.7 I was unable to get it fixed. Anyone else has used this adapter and could share experiences?. Otherwise it seems very promising.





Kind regards,

Jes.
