In Topic: Temperate water photography lenses

Yesterday, 12:51 AM

Hmm. Gives me something to think about. Ive read the reviews of both the 45mm and 60mm lenses and both look excellent, with the 60mm giving a bit more distance to work with but the 45mm giving a slighly larger area (27degrees vs 20degrees). Regards cost, the 45mm is about £549 vs £365 for the 60mm. I have the 35mm macro port already for use with the 14-42mm, so could just by the extension ring. Nauticam dont do a 10mm extension for m4/3 do they, so id have to buy the dedicated port?

I'm using the EM-10 although with the 14-42EZ lens. I'm not quite sure what your referring to, but the zoom gears which interact with the gear fitted to the lens do not appear to be loose or move too much on mine - could be a unique issue to the 12-50 as it has a substantial zoom gear attachment?

So the 45mm macro offers better possibilities in UK water as you have to get closer? I currently am using the 14-42mm lens that came with the camera (EM-10), would the extra 3mm and 2 f-stops be worth it, and is the 45mm classed as a dedicated macro lens?

Lol:) they are the first john dorys which i've seen *alive that is) in 14 years of diving, so any.shot is a good one for me.. im sure the lenses will help. Cant decide what to save for first -WA or macro..

I haven't been using a dedicated wide angle or macro lens yet (still saving!), so have been making do with the 14-42mm EZ lens which came with the camera. It means that I can't do true WA or macro due to the focusing distances (i.e. if I get too close the camera won't focus on the macro end). I've been using TTL although I only got it working correctly on a couple of those shots - not the john dory one unfortunately. I would have loved to get a better picture, but they tend to be rather skittish, and were just hovering over a sandy bottom about 1" off, making any kind of interesting composition problematic at best..
