Olympus has begun loading its range with professional lens to its micro four thirds cameras (MFT) right congratulations. This year, two new wide-angle lens, ED 7-14 f/2.8 PRO and ED 8 f/1.8 PRO come and here you will see how well they perform.
Olympus has divided its micro four third lens in three groups, standard, premium and pro. Pro-segment, the two tested lenses belongs has now, with these two ancillary focal lengths from 8 mm fisheye up to 150 mm tele.
The apparent focal length extension is on twice as clean effectively has of course from 16 to 300 millimeters to work with if you want the best from Olympus. Each lens has an aperture of f/2.8 except fisheye lens endowed with f/1.8 instead.
Vidvinkelzoomen to be tested here is thus a focal length which can be said to be equivalent to 14-28 millimetres if you count on it to small-screen format, a nice focal length that works well for a wide variety of subjects. Landscape, reportage, portraits (if you’re daring), sports and so on.
Fisheye lens may have a narrower scope, but this has given thought to the lens and Olympus a closest focusing distance of two and a half centimeters, making it also works to bring exciting macro images when you get with really very much in the picture. True, it is quite tricky to use a macro lens with a focusing distance of just a few centimeters for General macro photography, but it opens up more possibilities in all cases.
Otherwise, the fish-eye lens popular among sports photographers and wildlife photographers, but even those who like to photograph the sky in different ways. Because you also get a bright hole gets it extra nice.
Short focal length – fast focusing
Often the lens with short focal length lenses have quite a fast autofocus, the lenses to be moved should not risk so far and the depth of field is also large enough that the exact focus is not as difficult to find. That’s right good agreed with both of these Olympusobjektiv also.
We tested them together with an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, which itself has a fast focusing, but we had no problem with lenses chased the sharpness or seemed unsure of where it would end up.
The Zoom has a focus ring that can be used to quickly be switched to manual focus through the slide it backwards, a similar feature can be found on other lenses in the same series. A smooth and good solution that lets you quickly select what kind of focus you want without having to key in the menus. However, fisheye lens does not have this feature.
