. . . Nice photos with the first being the best IMO. As for stopping down these fast primes, I'd suggest staying at f/5.6 or larger. Old habits are hard to break and I've made the same mistake numerous times myself but the DOF with m4/3 is large enough that you rarely need f/8 and smaller no matter what the subject is. Particularly with landscape scenes, f/8 and f/11 are entirely unneeded IMO. For that matter, I'd have left the 17, 25 and 45 at home and used my 14-45 in their place for the snowscapes that were shooting and I would have left it wide open at f/3.5-5.6. No more fumbling with lens changes in the falling snow and IQ results that easily match those fast primes. Just a thought.
