OMD EM56 takes to the streets
Feb 3, 2013

I spent the weekend in San Francisco, using only the OMD EM5 on this outing.

I would say the camera worked well for me:  a pleasure to use, good image quality, good battery life (as I noted in a previous post, I was very surprised to see the batteries go over a 1000 shots per battery).

With the Panasonic 100-300 zoom, I change to Shutter Priority and used a shutter speed of 1/1000.  Otherwise I use Aperture Priority and Auto ISO and the camera would select a shutter speed of 1/250 for this lens at 300 mm (too slow!).

The 25/1.4 is stellar as is the 75/1.8

2500 images in 2 days.  The EM5 + 25/1.4 is now my favorite museum kit and my favorite street mural kit.  The 75/1.8 makes a good lens for street portraits.
