Oly 75mm arrived - my thoughts after initial use
Aug 1, 2012

Don't expect rocket science, or any kind of science from this. It arrived this morning (from WEX in the UK) and I had approximately 20 mins to try it out at lunchtime.

When it turned up it was packed up in so much packaging the postie must have thought I was having a barbecue delivered. It is a fantastic lens and looks the part on the E-M5:

It seems a sharper lens than the 45mm F1.8 Olympus and pretty much has nothing wrong with its output. I note further that it has lots of contrast and produces lovely bokeh.

In any event here is a gallery of sample images (yes, they are pretty much all wide open, so shoot me).

This is from my roving around the Royal Exchange in London today. There was a free performance from a musician sponsored by the mayor’s office and a whole bunch of chuggers.

A few more on my blog post here: http://wp.me/p2wMAg-5A
