    No Fun with Oly 45mm thread?

    I searched quite a bit to try and find it.

    Well, if I missed it, then ignore this, otherwise, perhaps we should rename this thread and make it the Fun with Oly 45mm...

    Anyway, this has rapidly become one of my go to lenses. Combined with the Panny 20mm, it makes a really fun kit.

    Here are a couple posts from today:

    Plum Tree Therapy

    Pleasant Dreams

    Bear with the slideshows. I am just beginning to try and bring up my website (a long process), so I just created these from within Lightroom.

    Well, I am not one for portraiture, so I use the lens mostly for shots like this:



    But, here is one candid I shot that I am rather fond of:

    Here's one with the Oly EP2.
    Exif: 1/80sec iso800, f1.8. The EP2 is not the sharpest however.

    Another almost similar pose but "NUDE" so it is strictly for adults ...
    If you are interested to see how the 45mm renders skin and skin tones in a strong back lit situation and low light, then click here...
    Flickr: Please wait...
    and here for a slowish handheld shot at 1/6sec of the nude.

    Re: No Fun with Oly 45mm thread?

    I've put up a small gallery on Pbase. 45 and 75 f/1.8's mostly by me, but a few by my daughter Yael, who seems to really like sticking a long lens in people's faces...

    All with my new toy EPL-5. I bought the VF2 viewer for a future use, and the rest followed. Click on a frame in the slide show, and there is a 1/4 or sometimes full res jpeg available for download.

    Here are some shots from the last spell of nice weather, with the 45:


    a nephew,


    his older brother, charging,


    but he stopped short of touching the lens (barely)

    and the fearless photographer was my daughter:

    Pixels galore

    I'm counting on the site's software to reduce this one to your screensize, but I couldn't bear to discard a single pixel. This is Silwan in East Jerusalem,
    viewed from the City of David architectural site on the hill just south of the Temple Mount in the Old City. Taken yesterday, election day, which provided
    a day off from work for everyone, as well as great weather.
    The result was an exceptionally high election turnout with increased votes for the Arab parties, the three (or more) leftist parties, the new center party,
    the rightist party, in fact for everything but Bibi's party.



    The 45/1.8 does a great job in retaining mid-tone detail. You might, for example, try to count all the satellite dishes in this picture. But in the next
    shot, which shows Silwan coming up against the modern cemetaries on the Mount of Olives, I don't recommend trying to count the gravestones.

    Hi all,
    It is my first time registering here as a new member and cannot wait to share many images which I took with my Dark Knight OMD together with various lens.

    Here you go for my pix which I used 45mm F1.8
