E-P2 with legacy Canon FD lenses (samples from dpr gallery)

I owned a GF1 for a few month and now bought an E-P2. This is why it was a good decision for me:

  • much better jpeg-output (colors, sharpness)

  • IBIS makes all my legacy lenses and the 20 mm stabilized (2-3 steps)

  • EVF is very helpful when using legacy lenses

  • high iso output a little better then GF1

  • AF with 14-45, 20 and 7-14 nearly as fast as GF1

Here are some samples with my Canon legacy lenses. Only a little post-processing (framing, resize, tone-curve, unsharp-mask). All shots free hand.

Canon FD 2.0/35 mm, ISO 800, f/2.0, 1/10 sec

Canon FD SSC 1.4/50 mm, ISO 400, f/2.0, 1/6 sec.

Canon FD 5.6/100-300 mm, ISO 100, f=300mm, f/8.0, 1/160 sec.
