Pleased with 12-40mm bokeh.
3 months ago

Hi there,

Just wanted to thank everyone for your good advices. I was a bit reluctant to purchase the olympus 12-40mm as It is quite some investment and I already have the 12-60mm. I finally decided to go for it and I am very pleased. I just received it on Friday and had quick time to test it int he garden this week-end. I am very pleased with it and I am in particular delighted by its ability to shoot close-ups and its smooth bokeh rendering. The 12-60mm was also very good for close-up but I have the feeling the 12-40mm bokeh is even a bit nicer with at  40mm  and 2.8 aperture than the 12-60 at 60mm and 4.0 aperture.

Here are a few shots from my garden, nothing really special though.
