    Kitty, with 4/3 NOT m/3


    with my 'old school' e410 and the 25mm pancake
    this camera sorta got sidelined when I got my e510 with IS and all that.
    but, playing with it and the pancake lens I realized (again) just how small and light a kit this combo is...

    Nice noble-faced portrait, Lili. Do you remember what ISO this was taken at? I'd guess 1600, but I'd like to know for sure.

    --Peter, who has an E-510, and wishes there was an Oly 25/1.8 or 1.7 for regular 4/3.

    Lovely tabby but the image is very noisy.
    Panasonic G1 & GF1 bodies, Panasonic 14-45, 45-200mm, various Minolta, Pentax, Canon FD, M39 & M42 mount lenses.

    Kind of has a 400+ B&W film grain look to me. While it would probably be objectionable in color, I don't mind it at all in B&W.

    And of course....I love the cat! Reminds me of a grey tabby I lived with many, many years ago.

    Thank you! This was done at ISO 1600, hence the gritty near-tri-x look
    I too would like faster lenses for my Oly's but would prefer said lenses to be small and light

    Ben and Ron, thanks! ISO 1600 with cropped ends of to make square; hence the grain, which I like in B&W as well. She does not pose for long so one has to grab the shots one can.

    Here is a shot in the same lighting and differing pose, shot with my K100D Super and the 50/1.4 FA lens.Shot at f2.8 and ISO 1600. Cropped about the same amount too.

    You can see the larger, fewer-pixel sensor shows less noise.
    I like both palettes myself...
