Again, we’ve spent most of the week either in murk or rain here in London. Today, a fiery ball in the sky appeared so I set off to run the GH3 through its paces with some different lenses. With apologies that these cover old subjects – I had intended to go to Somerset House but ended up with only 45 minutes to actually get outside and shoot, so I headed to St Pauls.
I really wanted to see if the 12 and 75 held their own on the GH3. I also popped the 45 on for a few shots.
To start with I left the 12-35 on and tried some CAF shooting of the traffic. This sounds a bit obvious, but it either works or it doesn’t. That is to say it works great when it locks properly, but about 20-25% of the time it doesn’t.
I also took the 7-14 down to the river and shot the above and below pictures of the Millennium bridge. Flare was pretty bad but I was shooting into the sun, so it’s par for the course.
The 12 produces some lovely results on the GH3, markedly sharper than the 12-35 at 12.
The 45 was excellent as ever.
The 75 is off the scale. Again the results it turns out stagger me. If all M43s lenses were this good I suspect there would be much wailing from other camera manufacturers.
