Olympus 45 f1.8 - first attempt at portraits

Everyone who has said on this board that the Oly 45 is a "must-have" lens for M43 owners is completely right. I bought one at Keeble & Suchat in Palo Alto on Thursday and got a bargain to boot ("10% off" sale happening until end of today). Even in my hands it gives awesome results. Having flown back to the UK overnight, I pressed family members into posing for my experiments this morning and here are some results (all with OM-D):

ISO200 | 0.3EV | f5.6 | 1/200

ISO200 | -0.3EV | f2.8 | 1/160

ISO200 | 0.7EV | f1.8 | 1/800

ISO200 | 0EV | f2.0 | 1/500

If you don't have one already, I can't recommend it highly enough. C&C welcome and thanks for looking.


ps - dog was looking at a squirral
