- compose the image i want.
- use the Lumix G1 manual focus function and locate the focus "box" on the subject. (of course, thru the superb viewfinder to reduce any handshake hence i can stop down the ISO and increase the shutter speed)
- Adjust the focus ring on the lenses.
|Reflection and Bokeh-licious|
|Harry Porter Portrait, BUT the focus is actually at the background|
This is the in-focus "Hitachi" sign board, the "Hitachi" is "sharp" enough and the background is "blur" enough. Even if the aperture is not fast enough, by appropriate composition, we still can get decent background blur effect :-). Bravo Canon FD and Lumix G1!
- Shorter focal length than Canon 50mm F1.4, less handshake blur. theorectically, as long as shutter speed> 1/50 sec, the blur effect should be minimum.
- 170g , lighter than Canon 50mm F1.4 which is 235g. (For detail spec ofCanon FD 28mm: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/companies/canon/fdresources/fdlenses/28mm.htm; Canon FD 50mm: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/companies/canon/fdresources/fdlenses/50mm.htm)
- sharp image from my perpective, if focusing is done properly.
- low price (i bought at around SGD110). for anyone who want to try manual focus lenses, this is a suitable lenses due to the cost.
1. Bokeh effect is not as good as Canon FD 50mm F1.4.
