OMD + Nikon 105/2.5ais
Jan 9, 2013

It's an odd marriage... the state of the art mirrorless Oly em5 and a vintage 105/2.5 ais Nikkor.  The 105 is known as a sweet portrait lens, but with the 2x crop on a u4/3 sensor, it has an effective reach of 210mm, making it a sweet telephoto lens.  I'm not that steady with long lenses, so this was really a test of the 5 axis stabilization built into the Oly body. Despite it being a cold gray day, I took it to the lake, a spot where there's never a shortage of subjects.
