Since I am the diffraction complainer I must admit that I often now
follow the Moose's advice and shoot at f/11 although f/9 used to be my
limit. I also like the 12-50mm lens and it's macro mode.
But... the Moose must have been in need of some sleep at 1:17am when he suggested that f/11 vs f/8 would not only have given you greater DoF but also allow a faster shutter speed. Or maybe the E-M5 Mk II has some nifty tricks up its sleeve.
BTW, my DoF calculator set at a modest CoC for 4/3 (.0167 or 60 lines/mm) says the 12-50 in macro mode (fixed 43mm) and focused at 300mm (a bit shy of 1 foot) has DoF range (rounded to the nearest mm)
@ f/8 - 295-306 mm @ f/11 - 293-308 mm Chuck Norcutt On 5/11/2016 1:17 AM, Moose wrote:
It was taken with the OMD5 and 12-50mm lens. For reasons mainly to do with loss of electricity in the camera ( now resolved) I had not used it much and only this week have I started carting it around with me as a conscious decision.The 12-50 is one of my most used lenses. A good lens in general, and the Macro mode avoids many lens changes.I'm still finding out how the camera-lens combo works; for example just how much DOF can I wring out of f/8;I would have shot it at f11, or both. In spite of the hand wringing about diffraction softening, f11 very often works well with deep subjects on 4/3 size sensors. That would give slightly better DoF AND allow a faster shutter speed. Most likely a slightly sharper result.
