The old 4/3 300mm f2.8 worked fine; the AF wasn't as fast as the Micro 4/3 lenses, but then it's much older technology and a very specialised lens that many won't have. There are two shots (horses) in the set shot on this lens. The longest Micro 4/3 I shot with was the 75mm f1.8 which worked perfectly, even wide open. I think Olympus needs to work on some new long glass, specifically designed for this camera. A 200-400mm f2.8 would be very welcome

The ghosts were light painted by an artist; he basically used coloured torches, stood in front of the camera and drew in the air. Camera was on a long exposure. With the Live Bulb mode you can see the image as it develops and stop the exposure when needed, rather than guessing as one does with traditional bulb mode. Clever stuff!!

Thanks for sharing! My favorite is the misty gate.

How were the ghosts created in the light box photo?

Any opinion on how the long glass handled on the E-M1? The 300mm, for example?
