    I got this lens for portraits, and all I can take with it are landscapes. Oh well...

    Seaboots (from Eskilfjordur, IS)

    A fisherman left these behind in 1920, when he followed the herring to Norway:



    neither he nor the herring returned, so the whole herring shack and its contents remained untouched for 90 years.

    Iceland also offers:

    There's a thread elsewhere in this forum linking to some pretty awesome landscape and aerial shots taken in Iceland earlier this summer by Jeff Grant. But, as Stewart Richardson (photographer and professional printer who lives in Reykjavik) points out, there is much more to see in Iceland. Such as horses...





    Icelandic horses travel the back country in packs, with riders at the front and rear, so that they can be switched off frequently. They seem very sweet-natured.



    and of course, there are also puffins (next post)

    Puffins and whales, and...

    Puffins are highly approachable, as long as you don't mind leaning over clifftops, and are lucky enough to choose the right week of the year:





    I missed the whales -- had to spend time in hospital getting a broken finger wired back together -- and I am working on selecting some of the waterfalls.

    Another popular Icelandic sport

    When you rent a 4x4 in Keflavik, big signs tell you to not even THINK of doing this.





    Actually, the first car isn't even 4wd. There are also landrovers with snorkel air inputs and trucks with giant tires that make this particular ford look easy, but the average Icelander seems to feel this is just a way to get the car washed.

    Locations for the puffins and horse pictures:

    Puffins -- cliffs at Dyrholaey (I tihnk)
    Horses -- in the interior at Kringla, on route F225 to Landmannalaugar, and near Eskifjordur. We rode 'em at Varmhlid.

    I've started working with the raw files from the E-P5, and the extra bit or two of headroom really makes a difference. I've replaced some of the shots I showed from jpegs earlier in this thread (horses in particular), and can finally make something nice out of this bizarre bit of boomery:

    Went to a friend's funeral today who died at the ripe, old age of 91. Nothing much to take photos of except the priest.

    Great shot, Jorgen.

    If you don't mind my asking, how did you focus this? I have a LOT of trouble with the 75/1.8 on an EM-5 with subject motion. Probably not the camera's fault!

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Re: Fun with Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f1.8

    Thanks for the comments and likes, all of you. We hadn't been to the beach in two years, so we had a blast

    Matt,
    With moving subjects, I always stop down to get more DOF, in this case f/2.8, which is borderline. f/4 or 5.6 would have been better. Perfect focus will always be a bit behind the subject. I've also found that, since the 75mm focuses so fast, I can mostly just push the shutter release to the bottom in one go using AF-S, and it will focus and take the shot more or less in one operation. If you had seen this photo full resolution, you would have seen that her right hand is perfectly in focus and the left one not.

    Still, this is the most important argument for the E-M1. My guess is that, within two years, all m4/3 cameras will have the phase detect AF of the E-M1.

    If the patent application by Olympus, for phase detect at every sensel proves workable, I think we're likely to see an avalanche towards smaller sensor cameras with adjustable (narrowing) depth of field... Shoot at f4 for maximum sharpness, and then simulate f1.2 in development.

    The OM-D line certainly has Olympus on a new roll!

    Cheers

    The Panasonic 42.5mm and Zuiko 40-150mm lenses will be very important. With those, there are lenses for what most photographers need with the exception of tilt/shift and very long, fast aperture telephoto lenses. The only real competition I believe will come from Nikon 1, if they can increase the number of lenses and a better selection of bodies. Others are lacking in AF and/or general ergonomics.

    Re: Fun with Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f1.8

    Now that photography is so closely aligned with electronics, it's getting harder to predict the future. There's a lot to be said for selecting the cheapest mass market device which gets the job done, rather than seeing any format as a long term investment.

    I recently got the E-P5 kit, with the intention of selling my E-M5 and X100, adding the E-M1... however, the X100 is more compact, much lighter and has a silent shutter - still a great camera and getting cheaper all the time.

    If I had to sell everything tomorrow, I'd keep the E-P5 + 17mm f1.8 but I'd sorely miss the X100.

    Cheers

    Brian
