Olympus ZD 35mm Macro lens.. by dichiee
« on: February 05, 2006, 08:16:38 PM »

Title: Olympus ZD 35mm Macro lens
Description: Test shots

dichiee - January 23, 2006 08:26 PM (GMT)
Here's some shots from the 35mm Macro lens. Unfortunantely nde ko sya nagagamit masyado sa macro hehe wala akong makitang magandang subject eh kaya naging portrait lens nalang sya. I love this lens. Bang for the buck $229 lang F3.5 nga lang pero ok na. Here's some sample shots at our friends house in low light

Shots are at iso 400, F3.5, 1/40

are these "straight from the camera" or was it "post processed".
Ganda nang kulay at sharp yung pix...
galing ba sa E500 'to?

dichiee - January 23, 2006 10:16 PM (GMT)
Me onting unsharp mask lang pero yung kulay nde ko ginalaw

mamaya post ko yung straight from camera

oops yup galing sa E500

eds - January 23, 2006 10:25 PM (GMT)
yup...galing nga ng Oly E500.. i've been eying this dslr along with canon 350xt... parehos lang sila 8MP..pero mas gusto ko yung kulay ng Oly..kaso..medyo i was having doubts kasi ..medyo madalang lang availablility ng accessories ng Oly...by the way...where did you buy your E500.. I canvassed at Island Photo and they offered me somewhat like 54K or 59K for the body with 2 lenses.

dichiee - January 23, 2006 10:39 PM (GMT)
Ya matagal ko den pinag isipan yung 350D vs E500. Nde ko gusto feel nung 350D parang laruan hehe pero I like the lens/accessories range kaso wala ren ako sa budget for the Canon kaya binili ko yung E500. I got it for $760 w/ the 2 lens kit.

Gumagamit den ako ng 300D sa church namin kaso ginagamit ko lang sya pag low light pero nde ko paren feel gamitin.

Sabi nila mas ok ang 300/350D pero para sa akin malayo sya sa E500. I guess kanya kanyang preferences lang.

galing ng kulay... ^_^

eds - January 24, 2006 04:16 AM (GMT)
grabeh....ang lupit ng kuha...makes me wanna go for E500...hmmm...makapasyal nga sa hidalgo :)

AE86 - January 24, 2006 06:19 AM (GMT)
I definitely agree.. Based on my personal experience, maganda talaga magprduce ng color ang mga Oly digicams.. kahit sa P&S.. :D

eds - January 24, 2006 04:46 PM (GMT)
frankly, ive been waiting for somebody to post pix here in phipo from an Oly cam... halos kasi nakikita ko was from Nikon o di kaya canon...its good to know and see how Oly cams render pix. =)

voodoo - January 25, 2006 12:30 PM (GMT)
dich, brad -- guess what came in my mail yesteday afternoon :D

i didn't expect the lens hoods (2 pcs) to come with the 2 Lens Kit pero they're very much welcome :D i'm just waiting for the 58mm UV lenses from Henry's :D

excited na ako matesting ito! hahaha!

also, i also spent a couple of months deciding between the E500 or the 350D (inclined ako witht he canon before...) but when i tried shooting the canon my hands just can't seem to hold the camera comfortably. and yes, para ngang katawanan ng p&s yung body nya, plasticky. eventually, got myself the E500 with 2 lenses,an Olympus Bag (yes dich, may Evolt emblem sa front, nice!), a 1GB Sandisk CF Card, a tripod ( :o ) and the 2 lens hoods :D

I might buy an XDA2 lens protector and cut it to fit the 2.5" lens kasi natatakot ako eh. hahahaha! sige brad! i'll be posting pics soon too! update mo ako ano bago sa E500 mo oksi? i think... tayo lang ata naka E500 dito? or am i wrong :D

dichiee - January 25, 2006 06:32 PM (GMT)
Oi voodoo! Congrats bro! Hehe yup kasama ang mga lens hood sa kit. Ako ren nagulat non. Wow Buti ka pa me Evolt bag hehe daya ako naka generic lang haha. Ok deal nakuha mo with all the acc na kasama. Get the EX-25 para magamit mo yung 150mm lens for macros. Congrats uli bro. Now get out and take some shots! :D

voodoo - January 25, 2006 09:44 PM (GMT)
hooki! i'll add that to my list :D that or the 50mm lens you just got. :D nakabili ka na ba ng flash? what kind?

There have been Oly pics posted before. Take a look at dimsumboy's posts. He uses an Oly E-1.

I also love the color rendition of Oly cams. The closest you can get to a Velvia or Provia from a DSLR.

dimsumboy - January 26, 2006 03:34 AM (GMT)
woweee! ganda pala ng contrast ng pics from the ZD 35mm a! parang ZD 50mm din!

grabe, sana hinintay ko na lang magka stock sa hk para nakatipid ako!

@dichiee: post ka pa ng portraits from your ZD 35mm a!

voodoo - January 26, 2006 03:53 PM (GMT)
@dich & dimsumboy -- should i get the extension tube for macro or the 35mm f3.5 nalang diretso? :D

crosstrainer - January 26, 2006 04:40 PM (GMT)
interesting. :rolleyes:

Ikaw depende sa budget mo. Kung kaya mo yung 50mm Macro, yun nalang para F2 sya pero kung underbudget 35mm at kung mas underbudget hehe EX-25 nalang. It works great with the 40-150 kit lens may working distance ka pa sa macro kaysa sa 35 or 50. I bought both 35mm at EX-25 mas mura paren sya sa 50mm. Kaya depende sayo pero maganda yung 35 or 50 kasi may maganda kang portrait lens ;) Nde mo na magagamit yung 14-45 kit lens mo hehe

voodoo - January 26, 2006 10:12 PM (GMT)
hmmm... o nga no. if you look at it from a second point of view, mas flexible ka kung kukunin mo yung 35mm and ext tube rather than the 50mm. :D sige i'll think about it. did you get rin the ME-1 Viewfinder magnifier?

tetferrer - January 27, 2006 01:48 AM (GMT)

where did you buy your E500?

grabe...napaisip tuloy ako...i am an Olympus user for years now...p&s nga lng...kaya sanay na rin ako sa mga buttons niya...

hmmm...might get this instead of a 350D


voodoo - January 27, 2006 02:33 AM (GMT)
@tetferrer -- well, we've this member sa pinoyxbox.com whom we buy or stuff from. he gets the stuff from HK or US. in my E500's case, sa hongkong olympus store talaga. Even the free Sandisk 1GB CF Card's box may tatak na Olympus and the free bag is the one with the Evolt Emblem. anyway, he goes to and fro HK every few weeks so sya na personally nagdadala ng stuff para lang tax and shipping. :D if you are interested, i can PM you his number, he's still in manila now. hehehe!

btw, i'm from davao, so i added a little shipping pa from MLA to DVO :D and he requires only 10% deposit.

judell74 - January 27, 2006 07:33 AM (GMT)
Great shots dichee! Oly is really known for great colors! :)

voodoo - January 28, 2006 12:03 AM (GMT)
dich! added the bag's pic in my first post. :D
I also bought an XDA2 protector and cut it up to fit the E500's LCD.
I'm happy na! seems the LCD Protector doesn't pick up much lint or dust as the LCD does. :D madaling linisan.

dichiee - January 30, 2006 05:07 PM (GMT)
@judell74 thanks man!

@voodoo wow! I want one daya dapat kasama ren sa kit yun hehe how's your lcd protector? malinaw paren ba?

voodoo - January 30, 2006 10:02 PM (GMT)
@dich - yups, i'm counting on the LCD protector to be good for years. kasi my xda2 has it for almost two years na and it's great pa... except where you always use the stylus on :D you should get one. :D it doesn't affect the visibility at all.

btw, ano settings mo sa sat / contrast and sharpness normally?

dichiee - January 30, 2006 10:12 PM (GMT)
Cool. I was thinking of getting that or this

user posted image

Sa settings ko usually naka -2 sharpness ako at -1 contrast I think pag indoors yun gamit ko tapos +2 and +1 sa outdoors or the other way hehe nakalimutan ko kung ano mas ok. Nakuha ko lang yung sa dpreview forums pero I think naka -2 -1 lagi settings ko unless na maalala ko i adjust

voodoo - January 30, 2006 11:48 PM (GMT)
ooooooh i think i just pissed in my pants!
get that get that! tapos let me know :D hehehehe! ano mounting nyan sa E500? adhesive? (yung lcd protector ko static lang, washable)

dichiee - January 31, 2006 12:53 AM (GMT)
hehe I know me likey hehe. I think adhesive sya eh pero nde ko sure

voodoo - January 31, 2006 11:52 AM (GMT)
dich -- tumawag ang cousin ko from HK kanina, he got me a replacement BLM-1 battery for HK$190 lang. not bad eh? :D

dichiee - January 31, 2006 04:40 PM (GMT)
Magkano sa US $ yun?


Nevermind I got it. Yup not bad bro! Gotta love extra batteries hehe. Pakuha ka na ren ng RM-1 (remote). A must accessories para makasali ka sa piktsuran hehe nde mo na kelangan tumakbo for the timer haha

Magkano yung bag bro? I want a bag with Oly logo :D

voodoo - January 31, 2006 10:04 PM (GMT)
E free lang kasi yung bag so I don't know how much talaga! :D i also checked online sights, la akong makitang same bag under the oly brand, ibang design :D

merong replacement battery (not olympus brand) sa Adorama... i think for 19usd.

dichiee - February 1, 2006 12:15 AM (GMT)
ya nakabili ako ng generic battery sa ebay for less than $20 hehe it works fine naman

voodoo - February 1, 2006 03:58 AM (GMT)
brad, share naman ng night shot settings? meron kasi akong pupuntahan na cultural show next week, want to take good shots... paprax ko muna settings na tama... can you shed some light on this noob?
