I'd would like to know if anyone has made any prints using the X5 and their thoughts about the guality of their prints.Own the Olympus 12mm, DJI 15mm and the Olympus 25mm. I think you could probably get everything you need out of the 12mm and the 25mm Olympus. Sometimes when filming in tight areas I pull out the DJI 15mm cause it keeps everything else on set just out of frame. I have never needed more. Every one loves the 45mm however I think that the 25mm is already a handful on the sticks to be super smooth and you can see shaking if there is substantial wind so a 45mm will have very limited uses, in my opinion (I have only used the 45mm a couple times and returned). Zoom is worthless in my opinion, lesser quality glass, stick to primes and get to know your lenses and when to use each one. If I had to choose one I would still go 12mm Olympus especialy if you are single op. When I used to shoot with the GH4 on the S800/S900 the 12mm was always the go to lens but we tend to shoot a lot more tracking and action sports material. My usage is 12mm=80% 15mm=10% 25mm 10% . Also to note all three lenses share the 46mm filter diameter the 45mm uses a 38mm I think so you need an adapter ring for your ND's. Also plenty of good used glass on Ebay, I purchased a couple lenses for 60% off the new price so If you don't like it you can resell without a loss. Or do Amazon and BH and pay the price and try for 30 days and make a decision. Good Luck.
I will be getting some done up, but I have no trepidations about the quality they would be... I did up some X3 prints and they looked pretty nice, so the X5 should be awesome.I'd would like to know if anyone has made any prints using the X5 and their thoughts about the guality of their prints.
Separately... Olympus had a promotion though (I think it's still on), I got them all for about $300 off total, they were about $100 off each so thought may as well, we'll find ways to use them I'm sureDo they sell them in sets or did you just buy all these separately?
Will the Olympus m.zuiko f2.0 micro 3/4 digital 12 mm lens work on the the x5 camera ?
