  • The Red Ring in the Christmas Stocking: the 100L Macro IS

    Santa brought me the 100L Macro IS lens, and as expected, it lives up to the hype. Good value too. For not much more money than the 135L you get IS and macro functionality.










    How sharp is this lens? Is IS for real?

    100% crop, wide open at f/2.8, handheld at 1/13s from about a meter away

        Yep, the stabilization does seem to work. So the 135L was DC?

        If the IS is in the camera, will it work with manual lenses then? I read somewhere with the OM-D you have to enter the actual focal length of the lens in the camera menu for it to work properly.

          Sorry, what's DC? The 135L was f/2 but had no IS.

          I don't know about in-camera IS. I imagine in-camera IS would work on manual lenses.

            Sorry, was a Sigma nomenclature (OS for image stabilization).

            Found some answers here on the OM-D stabilization: http://brandymorecastle.org/projects...ur-thirds.html

                ...and it sells for less money in Indonesia than in Singapore or the even the U.S.

                    If you don't need macro, and you are shooting on full frame I'd recommend the 135L instead.

                      I badly need a macro. Anyhow, thanks. Good to know that the price is good here in Indonesia.
