    A normal lens, 25mm, for the way I like to shoot: I like to be in close most of the time. I love 40mm on this format too, but it's a little tight for street work IMO.

    The 20 to 40 mm range is where I like to be for FourThirds street work. 50mm and up tends to be a little too tight most of the time, forcing distances which cut intimacy. Sometimes I like a little wider too, but for your desired FoV range 25 to 40 mm is just right. Speed is important too as much of the indoor street scenes are rather poorly lit.

    The two lenses I use this are the Summilux 25/1.4 and Konica 40mm f/1.8. The ZD 35 is sharper than the 40mm and allows autofocus when that's useful, I use it a lot too, but sometimes that extra stop of speed is very useful.

    Thanks for the comments, Godfrey.

    I have been so busy lately with other matters that I have barely had time to pick up a camera. Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things in a couple of weeks.

    Kevin, I just love that shot of the little dog. Nice stuff.

    Torso? Ya need more than 50mm in most cases. It depends on the density of the crowd (ie. the approximation to the individual) but usually 85mm lenses (170mm equiv) is about right I find. Unless of course you don't mind capturing the scornful looks as you get in people's faces with your camera. 50mm is about right for full body or groups of 2 or 3. 35mm is about right for segments of a crowd. 24mm gets you nice scene-width crowds. Wider lenses than 24mm are too difficult to control composition in a crowd or busy street. Something like the 7-14mm Lumix can be fun for street but it's spray & pray pot-luck photography at best. But that may be what some people like too - just depends...

    You have to be much further away from your subjects than I for a 170mm EFL lens to be "torso only". For the distances I like to work, torso only is 25-35mm on FourThirds.

    Streetshooter - you have a wonderful eye

    The second one looks like a giant concrete cliff that you could fall in to.

    The first one is too close to home for me - we see this in Toronto all the time. Doesn't seem that society is getting more humane and caring.

    Keith, Thanks my friend.
    I'm doing work with some lawyers at a Homeless Advocacy organization.
    They have been using my streetwork for a few years.
    I see the situation worse here in Philly than it was 40 years ago.
    It won't go away and neither will I...

    Godfrey,

    I like this photo quite a bit, could you have taken it with the E-1 and the same lens in your opinion?

    He could, but at ISO1250 and 1/10s, the E-1 would produce a rather grainy and somewhat blurry result. I used to take photos of temple interiors with the E-1 because of the silent shutter, but I never went beyond ISO800, and even then, exposure had to be spot on. With the 11-22, it was mostly possible to hold the camera still enough to shoot at 1/10-1/15s, but with a 35mm, it's another story.

    Oh, and very good photo btw. Wonder what she suddenly remembered.

    Jorgen hit it on the nose. :-) If I'd been there with the E-1, I'd have been at ISO 400 or 800 and shooting with the adapted Konica 40mm f/1.8 wide open. And even then, it would have been a grainier image. Nothing wrong with that, but it is a different photo. I do that too as I still love shooting with the E-1.

    Thanks for the compliments, both of you!

    Here's one that almost applies!

    Old Fashioned soda fountain in Damariscotta, Maine. Should it be in B&W?

    Seems most street photography is done in B&W.

    I think it would look good in B&W or in a properly adjusted color rendering. As it is, the colors of the principal subject matter are flat and dingy yellowish, which distracts rather than adding an "old timey" feel.

    Most street photographers do seem to like B&W (myself included), perhaps harkening back to images they admire from the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and others, and the newspaper photos of the last century. But by no means is all good street photography rendered into B&W: there is a lot of excellent work done in color too.

    Godrfey,

    great shot!

    Did you put in some additional vignetting? I think the 25 has normally no vignetting.

    Yes, I have been adding a fairly substantial vignette effect to the photos in this series as part of its look. The Summilux 25 has about a half-stop natural corner/edge light fall-off when wide open, which is just about gone by f/2. I like the look of it and exaggerate it. :-)

    Re: Street (images thread)

    Went to the 38th Annual Mackinaw Community Sale (Illinois) yesterday. First time for me and it was interesting. People tag goods and pile them up by the curbs of about four blocks of the downtown area. Pickup trucks with auctioneers dive down the street and stop at each pile and auction it off.

    What amazed me was the number of people who attended. Mackinaw is only about 1500 pop and it looked like it tripled for this event.

    First pix show what it was like the rest show some of the interesting people I took pictures of. I have many more interesting pix but just showing individual people here.

    The GH2 with swivel screen was great for this. I often held the camera a waist level and used the LCD to compose. The people did not even know their picture had been taken. Used Oly 9-18 and Pany 14-140.

    This one, I like, Godfrey. A whole little story told, and another one untold

    Hello to a very civilized group. This is my first post although I have been looking for quite some time. I have also included an image taken with a G1 with the 14-45 lens in Florence last August.

    Thanks for looking.
