    That's an interesting shot (and don't consider my 'interesting' comment to mean anything but that ). It almost looks CGI--I like it

    Very nice b&w image. You are probably enjoying the GF1 with 20/1,7 as I have been for the past several weeks. Warm regards, Leica 77.

    Brian - it's a tough call between your color and B&W on these images, both are wonderful

    Nice pictures, I like them in Black and white. Love the captions, in this and the previous series. The "Busy Morning" one surely elicits something more along the lines of: "Someone please put the cloth back on my butt, it's freezing out here!"

    Friedel, Devon - both wonderful sets, to your usual high standard!

    Thanks Keith for your kind words.

    A couple here from earlier today - on a walk with my son through the Peak District... we were exploring a frozen / melting stream on the hillside.

    Yesterday was a return to my favorite subject matter, people.

    First two were with 17mm. Second two were FD 50mm f/1.4

    Those two were taken with an Olympus E-P1 and an Olympus 17mm f/2.8 lens.

    Devon... sorry for wasting the bandwidth... I really should have been able to figure that out myself! at least which lens, when you said 17mm. But being new to m4/3 and in the Panasonic camp, the Olympus lenses aren't front and center in my mind. I think from now on when someone mentions "the 17mm lens" I will know for sure what lens that is!

    Striking images you have made! They look so classic and timeless... really wonderful. I prefer the snappy contrast your 17 provided vs the softer tonality of the Canon 50. Were the camera and PP settings the same for both the 17mm images as well as the Canon images, with the difference mostly from PP variations? Or are there in-camera setting differences and PP differences which account for the dramatically different contrast levels?

    It would be really interesting to see how much difference there is in sharpness and contrast between those two lenses with no other variables in the mix. Is that possible to show us?

    I think most of what you are seeing is post processing, as looking back at those images I realize they went through a bit.

    Of the various lenses I have used with my E-P1 (Olympus kit 14-42, Canon FD 50mm f/1.8, Canon FD 35-105 f/3.5, Telesar FD 35mm f/3.5, Telesar FD 135mm f/3.5, LTM Leica 35mm f/3.5, LTM Canon Serenar 85mm f/2.0, LTM Leica 50mm f/2.0, Canon FL 55mm f/1.2) I have been most impressed with the performance of the FD 50mm f/1.4 and the 17mm f/2.8 as far as technical image quality goes.

    As far as a comparison between the lenses, this won't be the most scientific, but I do have a couple of examples,

    This photograph was taken with the 17mm yesterday,
    settings were f/2.8 1/80s iso400


    a crop from that,


    This was taken with the 50mm f/1.4 about a month ago,
    settings were f/2.0 1/160 iso800 +.07ev


    and a crop from that image,


    it occurs to me that the difference in iso settings probably have a bit of an impact, but even with that I feel these images do a reasonable job of showing what these lenses are capable of.

    edit: occurs to me that this might be a better example of 17mm's quality.. though a bit processed.. don't have an original on this hard drive...
    http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2587/...685be948_o.jpg

    edit#2: oh right, settings for that last one... f/2.8 iso160 1/500s... I hope this all ended up being coherent.. time for sleep.

    Hi Everyone

    This is my first post. Been admiring all your work for a while now, and just recently got an E-P1. While i am no where near as good as you guys, i am looking forward to learning and hopefully getting better as time goes on.

    So, here is my first pic upload.

    Please feel free to C&C. All appreciated.



    Thanks for looking.

    Nice expression, well captured David.

    I dug out the Hexanon 40mm f1.8 pancake yesterday - the E-P2 EVF changes the dynamic of manual focusing with the Pen... not necessarily better to be honest (once you're comfortable with LCD framing/focusing).

    Brian - I have just received my copy of this lens, based on your's and other's good reports on it. Haven't yet had a chance to test it.

    I hope your daughter is reading this, because she should be charging you modeling fees Lovely image, as always

    Winter landscape taken with the G1-IR and 14-45 kit lens. I put up a few more in false color IR in the image sharing forum.

    Thank you Leica 77. This is one of our favorite places for an afternoon walk and this is one of the first scenes I photographed in digital infrared 11 years ago with an un-modified Nikon Coolpix 950 and a B+W 093 filter.
