    Beautiful image Klaus - great execution

    Hello, I have entered u43 since GH1 appeared (migrated from 5D II).
    I will show some of my u43 photographs with different lenses, but let me start with first moments taken with GH1 + 14-140mm.

    Jerry... cool examples showing the crispness of the 14-140. It's a great lens.

    I put this in the "Square Format" thread, but what the heck: it belongs here too.
    Thanks for looking, comments always appreciated.

    Great shots, am learning about composition from all of you. Here is my addition of the Venus de Milo at the Louvre, I like the shadow. I could have stayed there the entire trip just learning about the shadows. The second is of the organ loft in the Mainz cathedral, which is undergoing renovations, but I loved the light streaming into the loft

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    I think, if I was allowed to keep only one lens for the rest of my life, it would have to be the OM Zuiko 50mm f/2.0 Macro. I simply don't know of any lens at any price that I have enjoyed as much, and still do. I think I need the 90mm too

    GH1 with OM Zuiko 50mm f/2.0 @ f/4.0 (probably)

    I don't care what gear I have.

    I posted a few of these in the 14-45 thread also, but many folks may not visit there, so I'm including them along with others here....

    Spring comes really late in the Pacific Northwest. No leaves on the trees around here yet (well, not counting the evergreens!), but during a motorcycle ride today I found some early signs of the earth coming back to life again...

    Traveled light with just the GF1 and 14-45. This camera/lens was the start to my m4/3 kit. In spite of adding a GH2 and a bunch of new native and legacy glass, this is still a great image making combo. RAW captures, quick processing in Lightroom.

    Thanks for the comments guys... Yes, it was a fun day and I enjoyed using the GF1 and 14-45 again since spending more time with the GH2.

    Ron... I think your images here would be great candidates for rich and bold B&W conversion. I especially like the first of the three.

    Ron, personally I prefer the colour version, which was somehow B&W enough already. BTW Nice work anyway.

    I met an old friend today.

    Ron... I think I'm with Michiel on preferring the color now that I see B&W. Although, I think a grittier B&W conversion might be pretty cool. I've quickly become a big fan of Silver Efex Pro 2 and the edgy conversions it can make.The "structure" control is fantastic. They have a free trial version if you want to try it. It is a superb B&W creation tool.

    Thanks, Don. The Tilt-Transformer is the base unit that allows tilting of the lens; it was specially built for the micro-4/3 mount. On the base, one can use the "composer", which is a twist-type focusing unit, along with an optic -- double-glass, single-glass, plastic, and so on. One can also mount a Nikon lens, which means you can tilt that lens (but not shift). Using the composer/optic gives a sweet 'spot' which you can move around the frame by tilting the base. Using a nikon lens gives more of a sweet 'slice' rather than a spot. All these things are explained on the Lensbaby site (http://lensbaby.com/)

    I forgot to mention that I also had a +4 close-up lens attached to the front of the composer/optic unit. The subject is actually a small area in a group of Hens & Chicks succulents. Obviously, I left the sweet spot in the centre for this photo.

    The Lensbaby is an interesting unit to play with. Many people experiment with it, get bored with it or frustrated by it, and it sits in a drawer. I'm still at the stage of experimenting to learn how best to employ its unique characteristics.
    Best regards,
    John.

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Thought I would include one of mine where you can follow the "slice" John mentions using a Nikkor (here I believe I used the Nikkor 35/2), mount it on the tilt 'base' and use it as a tilt lens. On this one I think you can see the slice where I wanted to include Marilyn's face as well as the plate on the bench (large series of benches painted by artists around town) so tilted at an angle, chose my focus and then find tuned until I got it as I wanted. This was my first foray with the Nikkors instead of using what they call Front Focus which mounts instead of the Nikkor lens and basically converts it to a Composer but with a wider FOV (40mm instead of the Composer's 50mm).

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread





    I've used these before to show the difference between using the Front Focus mounted on Tilt Transformer making it essentially a LB Composer and a Nikkor (36/2) mounted to make it a tilt lens. The top was taken with the TT/FF with 2.8 disc aperture and bottom taken with 35/2 at f/2 which creates a slice of focus but no distortion.

    I can also use the tilt much as I use my Canon tilt shift stopping it down to increase the focus wedge and then tilting to and refining the tilt until I get it as I want. Having a liveview EVF makes that easier the more I work with it. However, i'm guessing I will use it more to do selective focus than to increase the perception of DOF as I do with Canon TS on Canon body.

    Great. Thanks John for the explanation and Diane for the examples... I can see how one might make some images with the gear and then not use it much. But when the desire for the effect strikes... It would be nice to be able to create it.

    the thing that really jumps out at me with this thread is how much, and how often, people seem to use their m4/3 cameras. i guess that's part of their appeal, especially for those of us who are venturing away from DSLR's, this idea of convenience and the smaller form factor of a mirrorless system.

    here are a few shots taken with the basic GF1/20 1.7 setup.

    All,
    pleasure to watch this thread - every time when opening it!

    Diane B,
    you are one of few people (like Joe Hakim) - thanks to whom I sold 5D II and entered u43!
    I was reading many of your posts on DP Review long time ago

    Yep! If I would be single - I could take dSLR more often and to more places. But it was lying too often on the shelf.
    And most of my "best shots" where not taken due to this.

    You realize it more, if you have children or travel with backpack with laptop and other things or are older, etc.

    LOL, you are one very clever shooter Jerry. Impressed the heck out of me and you really are a painter of light. A great thinker

    Wow, cinematic!

    Lots of nice images here of late!

    This was a piece of cake.
    The setting was already prepared by other photographers and I was just passing with my mirrorlens and couldn't resist.
    The eyes focused on the photographers and me far behind them.

    Tesselator,
    eye catching color photos!

    Michiel,
    will you send them a copy?

    Once I also took few photos of a couple in a park, I sent them photos via email later.
