Art filter shots with 15mm f8 and OM-D
Oct 15, 2012

Took my new 15mm body cap lens for it's second outing. I wasn't impressed the first time I used it:

Now, I understand that this is not a “real” lens but rather an accessory. I decided to try to have “fun” with the lens and play with the Oly Art Filter settings.

First off, I missed the focus on quite a few shots. Secondly, the overcast sky made shooting at f8 without cranking the ISO difficult.

In the end, I found the lens more hassle than reward. I'll give it another try and hope I have fun but I think I'll likely be sticking to pancake lenses.
Anyway, here are a few samples taken at Katsuo-ji temple in Osaka Prefecture.
