The promised pics of the 18-200 Tammy
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:27:32 PM »
Do not complain about the Picture Quality...this was done in the halftime break of the soccer world Championship final so not to much love was invested...

I do not know how to make my uploaded pictures apear in the text so I sumply describe them inthe order I attach them:

1. Family Picture: Tammy, 18-55, 11-22, 22
2. Tammy EF-M versus Tammy EF-S
3. Same but looking from the fan service perspective
4. Tammy EF-M versus Tammy EF-S with Adapter
5. 200mm at 1:6.3 Lightroom raw to JPG convert

A word about 5. 
The model is a DeutschDrahthaar puppy about 3 month old.
A sitting puppy besides a sleeping puppy is the only thingthe AF of the M can handle (at least in my Hands)
The missaligned framing is because of the in my SOS mail mentioned way the zoom operates:
Smooth but Ultra tight glide. From 18 to 200 mm means left Hand graps lens, right Hand graps M  twisted by 180 degree and than pretend you want to squeeze water out of a wet Jeans. Oh and for good measure the lens has a zoom lock switch...

Touching the lens gives you the feel that you use the Sigma 1:1.8 Art zoom (also from relative weight)
STM kind of drive is nicely smooth and silent, VCD is silent and fast. But... mounting the lens or switching the M on generates a sound which reminds of the initialising Phase of a flatbed scanner.

You can see this on the Picture: The lens is fat, unlike the Canon EF-M design the Tammy has a much bigger Diameter than the bayonet.

If you want to check on some flaws of the Tammy check on the left ear of the puppy, plenty of choma issues there....

...also, the purple fringing on the lower right...that's quite a bit.

Thanks for sharing! I've been considering this lens as well and this helps. How does the lens look on the camera?

For the intended users, the lens is fine, its not a Pro lens, so don't expect $2500 performance.


Purple fringing can be removed in lightroom.




Here is a before and after with Canon's Champ of purple fringing, the 85mm f/1.8




Before:


Original:







1:1

What about DPP? I was never able to figure out how to reduce PF to that degree. (I don't have Lightroom)

TBH, though, PF is so well controlled in the lenses I use/conditions I shoot in that it's rarely if ever a problem...

LR5 has a tool for removing LOCA's.  DPP has a lens correction tool, but I don't know if it works as well on that image.  I have DPP4 which doesn't work with RAW from the 5D MK II yet.


What LR is actually doing, is to remove the exact purple shade of the color from the image.  This usually is not noticible, because its a very narrow filter.  But if there is something that exact shade of purple in the image, it will no longer have any color.


DXO also removed every bit of the purple fringe, and it was easier to use than Lightroom for this.

And if that is ever a problem, you can use a local adjustment brush to remove the fringing from just the places it appears. I use this option occasionally and have had great success with it. Hope this helps...

By the way, Lightroom is, in my opinion, worth every penny.

From a Hong Kong shop, works pretty well with my red M when doing pictures of all the small children in the wider family... especially with the other secret weapon of the Luftwaffe: The PEZ dispenser. Somehow the feet of those dispensers are made to fit a hot shoe and you do not need to ask for smiles once you have mounted it.

Still the current (novelty) price tag is steep for a product that will have to compete in a few weeks with the Canon product.

Is a Canon version of the 18-200 on the way??

There is a Canon 18-200, it was initially expensive, and not all that good.  11:1 zoom lenses are a compromise, particularly if you want a reasonable price and a lens that is small and light weight.


A replacement for the 18-200 is long rumored, but not for as long as dozens of other lenses.

I suspect the question is about the EF-M 18-200mm rather than the EF-S 18-200mm - in which case, there's a optical formula patent, but nothing more is known - fingers crossed for a new EF-M lens, maybe two with the next EOS-M camera - an 18-200 and/or pancake zoom would seem likely, more so the latter I'd guess to keep in line with the compact agenda

Cool! I'm going to have to try this!
