100% crop of a bit of wildlife through the kitchen window.

One from Bangkok and one from Seoul. I'm absolutely in love with the E-M10. It's the perfect travel camera. Heck it's almost the perfect camera. Even at home I find myself reaching for it more than the 5D these days.

First senior shoot with OMD. This is the 75mm 1.8. I love this lens. Pretty much replaces what I am used to coming from the Canon 135mm.

Fantastic shot. Really, really good lighting, nice processing and perfectly placed catchlight. What was your setup? Softbox camera left slightly above her and reflector bottom right, or something like that? Is her hair lit with natural light?

Everything I've read about this lens sounds great. You can see a bit of green fringing in the out of focus parts of her hair on the top right but that's not a big deal.

I was holding a white triangle reflector with my left hand. Other than that it is all natural light.

The green is most likely due to spot healing away some of the hair on the side. There was def some purple fringing on the hairs that are crossing her other hair on camera right. I reduced it some with the Lr slider.

Thanks!

Nice! How are you liking the shift from Canon to Olympus m43? I originally got the E-M10 as a light travel kit but even at home I find I'm almost always reaching for it instead of the Canon setup these days. I'm thinking of selling the 135L and 24-105L, stripping my DSLR kit to the bare bones (5D + 50L + 4005.6L).

I like it so far. I really enjoy shooting with the Oly gear. It just seems to work. I am not loving the noise performance, but it seems adequate when using primes. My Canon kit was stolen and I replaced it with the OLY so I really have been forced to jump in with both feet. I have the e-m1 and e-m5 with 17, 45, and 75 primes as well as the 12-40 2.8 zoom. My Canon kit was 5dii's with 24-105L, 50mm 1.4 and the 135L. The e-m1 is a much easier to work with body as far as button placement and grip. The PDAF on the e-m1 really does make a huge difference for tracking as well. That said, if I am shooting for myself I will be using the e-m5 with primes because I love the size.

Sorry to hear about your Canons.

I also really enjoy shooting with Oly gear. The E-M10 is quickly becoming my new favourite camera because it's so fun to shoot with and suits my shooting style perfectly. I've had other PEN bodies but the viewfinder with focus peaking and magnification makes all the difference. It's also awesome just how much you can customize the OMDs.

Here is one with the 45mm. This lens is not as sharp as the 75 wide open but still plenty sharp for portraits.

Some days I totally regret selling off my Canon gear, and other days I fall back in love with the Oly system.

I feel like I get about 85-90% the quality I was getting with Canon, and I absolutely adore having in-body IS. I do dearly miss the 17-40 and 135 lenses though =(

Really debating picking up the 75mm to round out my Oly lenses, I'm seeing the used prices have really dropped for that little guy (another reason I regret the Oly ecosystem).

Anyways, a few pics.

Nice shot!

Is the 12 2.0 as sweet as everyone says it is? It's probably going to be my next Oly lens as there are very few old manual focus primes with this focal length and speed combination.

What happens when you pull the ring back other than the distance scale being exposed? Does the MF ring get smoother too? I'm keen to pair this lens up with Lee Seven5 filters for a lightweight but serious landscape kit.

Yes it is!
And the MF ring is very smooth and accurate with no wobbling.
