If you use a GH5 is the image still sharp in the corners at f/2?
Asked by: Seth
If you are focusing on a flat plane parallel to your camera's sensor, and the subject at the corner of the image is at the focus distance set by the lens, then yes, the corner of the image should be in relatively sharp focus, though there may be some vignetting at f2.

Quick Question... Just purchased the Laowa 7.5mm ...

Quick Question... Just purchased the Laowa 7.5mm F2.0 lens for landscape use on either my EM-1 MII or my EM-5 MII. Is it appropriate to set the camera mode to Manual, select shutter speed on the camera and then select aperture on the lens ring. Or, alternatively is is better to select camera mode to Program, and then select the desired aperture on the lens? For those that use this lens, what is considered routine or optimal practice for well to decently lit landscape photos?
Asked by: Larry
It does not matter which one you choose, it is all a matter of which you prefer using and what aspects of your photo you want to change.
