My new mantra after this week is "OM-D with kit lens and be there"! This kit was amazingly capable in a low light hospital setting, got a ton of keepers of my new baby boy =)

Time to contribute... Here's a couple from a recent Central America trip. Lenses used were the 45 1.8 & 14 2.8.

I might be selling mine. I need to pay of some bills ASAP to buy a house. I'd get a lot more money if I sold all my Canon gear, but I use that for the business so the OM-D may have to go. I'll be sad and it may be back on my list once again once I buy a house and have things more stable.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

Ohh it will be on your list again. I sold mine a few months back, and while it was the best move for me at the time, I definitely will have my name on the top of the preorder list for its successor. Hoping that will be some time this year...

Here're a couple from today that really show off some range, I think. The Pan 7-14 is pretty impressive, as is the new Olympus 60mm macro...

Nice shots , I have been eyeing off that panny but think I will stick to my original lens plans and get the oly 12mm and then the rokinon 7.5 fish eye.

I rate the 60 macro just as good as the canon 100l very sharp ;)

Zooms are always tempting, but nothing replaces a good prime for me.

To be honest, I'm not sure what to make of the 60 macro. I am finding MF using the screen incredibly difficult--you just can't hold it steady enough at arms length when you are dealing with a DOF of a couple of MM. I'll have to use the VF, I suppose, but if I have to crawl around in the grass to get the shots, I might as well just use my canon...
For portraits, although it's wonderfully sharp, you need to be pretty close to get good separation. The color and contrast are great, however.

Haven't had the opportunity to use the 60 yet, but to be honest I don't think these cameras were ever designed with manual focus high on it's priorities.

Couple of my recent shots outta the little oly no post process or anything just off the lens, my master shots of the last are about 1/2 a stop darker seems Flickr wanted to lighten them up some when I uploaded them.

OMD and 45mm
