now that's a cool photo, the only thing that I would say is that it looks like the horizon isn't straight.

SS, nice but why not hang your own work, some of which I have seen, to me is just as appealing.

It's new toy time ...

but shock horror ... it's not a Canon!

(Hey, you try getting a decent 1.4 / 50 prime for pocket change)

Picking up an adapter for the glass tomorrow with any luck ...

Purdy camera. I'm going to get myself a little micro 4/3 body that looks something like that, or a Fuji X1 type thing, for casual use.

QUOTED IMAGE

you will find that a challenge to use. esp the manual focus.

I got an adaptor to use the Olympus 50mm on the canon. at 1.8 it's not the sharpest lens on the planet, it gives everything a soft look like valanse has been smared on the lens. Step it down to f4 or f5.6 and it becomes very sharp.

Softer colours too, perhaps a more natural look. I would love to have a FF camera to have the 50mm a 50mm and not a 80mm
