    I was put off by the price at first, but I'm glad I purchased the 45 macro in the end. It's turned out to be one of my most used lenses. I love how it renders. This particular pic was shot wide open.

    Best regards,
    John.

    I like your Nitrogen series, Uwe.
    The b/w conversion creates an almost IR effect.

    I'm starting to work my way through the assignments in the book Contremplative Photography by Karr & Wood. The first assignment is "color."

    Here are a few from that assignment, all shot w/ G1 and 45mm Lumix/Leica Macro.

    Fantastic image Louis! I have not tried the 16:9 mode in macro, some of the images here are going to get me to play around more with aspect ratio in the field. This lens is one of my favorites in the line.

    Cliff, of course it goes without saying that I am very tempted by the new 25/1.4 as a companion to this superb lens.

    It is a great all round lens and I love the way it draws light. I did post one of these elsewhere but they go together. Delicious bokeh for macro shots and lovely sharpness for landscapes.

    Apologies for the link but one of my pictures from London's famous 'Open House' weekend has featured on the Daily Telegraph website in the UK. Entries were invited for architectural detail and this picture was taken with the DG45/2.8 on a GH-2. It was taken at is3200, f5.6 at 1/30 and is a crop from the centre. A great lens and a great camera.

    Jono

    I'll tell you a story about the 45/2.8.

    Recently I decided I had to divest myself of my Leica M8 and lenses - largely because as a Leica owner I have been priced out of the market by their ridiculous increases over the last few years. Anyhoo, I decided I would go the whole hog and sell all my m43rds kit and then only have one digital system (especially as most of my activity at present is MF film based) - I was leaning towards a Pentax system built around the K-5.

    My resolve was pretty strong until I started to photograph the kit with my GH-2 and the 45/2.8. The colours, the sharpness, the size and weight, the bokeh and the convenience of composition and exposure using live view: well my resolve broke. I guess I am in the m43rds camp until my 45/2.8 dies on me!

    (However, just waiting until after May 10th the confirm that Leica are once again going to introduce something with poor low light performance for the price of my left kidney before selling all my Leica DRF kit, though.)

    Thank you, but really it was too gloomy and too windy for good sharp shots. But these here were just fine.


    .......... tell you what, I'll do a deal . . . you buy an OMD, and I'll rebuy the 45 macro
    You call this a deal ?!
    Nah - I'll wait for Leica's D-day May 10.

    I've read and seen so much good from the 45/1.8 but I really couldn't give up my 45/2.8. The images in this thread just show why so well.
