Cropped Close-Ups II

'Five frames with the Olympus Zuiko OM 24mm F2.8, cropped close-ups on the MFT digital, Part II'

Compared to the ultra-wide Olympus Zuiko OM 21mm F3.5, the 24mm F2.8 has a 10° narrower angle of view and is considered the widest of wide-angles. Lenses at these focal lengths tend to have a strong rendition of the perspective when used in the context of the surrounding. For cropped close-ups, however, this is not necessarily something you have to delve too deeply into.

Mounted on the 2x crop-sensor MFT (Micro Four Thirds) digital camera, a 24mm lens will give you the 35mm full-frame equivalent focal length of 48mm, close enough to that of a 50mm focal length lens, which is considered as the standard for a 35mm full-frame camera.

The H.Zuiko 24mm F2.8, as used in this assignment, is the earlier version of the series, 8 elements in 7 groups construction with floating elements design, weighs 180 grams, and focuses down to 0.25 meters. The floating element design incorporates an automatic close focus correction mechanism that counters possible aberrations while keeping the excellent optical performance of the lens intact.

Shooting with the lens wide open, i.e. at its widest aperture, is shooting with a very narrow DoF (depth of field). Getting the perfect focal point in the composition you are looking at, as in the case of these sample images, may take a bit more time and experience to master. And, of course, I am in need of the same.
