Shoot in RAW because memory is cheap, but memories are priceless.

Thanks, Steven! Yes, I shoot everything in RAW (see my signature :)). That 2nd shot is a 5 shot bracketed image, initially processed in Photomatix Pro, then edited further in Photoshop and Lightroom.

Looking at your shots - particular the second one - made me start playing with the Nik HDR Efex plug-in for Aperture again. (Even enjoyed it so much I upgraded to the new version and plan on testing out the bracketing settings on the EM5 much more before we leave for Ireland next week.)

Bob, I always open his posts with delight knowing his work for a good while, Just wonderful.

Mahesh, also was pleased to see you use the 12-50 with such stunning results. One more reason to decide to keep it. LOL

Re: OMD shots - SD trip- from nikon D7000 user

well....

love the photos. I recently bought the OM-D and am testing it informally against my D7000- so far, I am hard pressed to rationalize keeping the Nikon. Even using the best Nikon lenses, the OM-D holds its own very well. Informally, mind you.

Very important to me is sharpness in photos-

These pictures are very impressive.

For a "serious/casual/spending-more-on-photo-equipment-than-I-got-brains" shooter, I am leaning towards the m4/3s as the best tool for what I like to do.

I used to think only a 'full frame' would be acceptable. I love what they do, but you can't argue with these pictures.

wonderful.

Re: OMD shots - SD trip- from nikon D7000 user

full frame has it's place. it will have a three dimensional sense of depth to prints that smaller sensors are unable to reproduce. it's something you can't show or quantify on a monitor just as people generally can't tell the difference between 645 and 35mm film scans on a monitor.

for real professional landscape work (ie. you're getting paid to do it), full frame is where it's at. if you're getting paid for it, you'd prob also have assistants to lug yer crap around so weight not really an issue.

for all the rest of us, this camera system is the bees knees.

Re: OMD shots - SD trip

Very nice photos. Really enjoyed seeing them. The poor Panda looks like it has a splitting headache ! Nice photo from the plane as well. Really hard to pick a favourite but really like the time lapse shots.

Thanks, Diane! I try to make sure that I only post quality stuff on the forums. The 12-50 is a wonderful lens, I think. For landscapes, I stop it down a bit, and the lens becomes tack sharp.

Thanks for the kind words and your thoughts, John. I have multiple systems, and find myself always coming back the the m4/3 for long backpacking or hiking trips. It's also great for a business trip where I plan to do some general shooting. One just can't beat its combination of lightweight gear and quality images.

For around town architecture I use my Canon 5DIIIand TS-E lenses. When I need all the detail possible, I use my Pentax 645D system. For candid street photography, I take my Leica M9-P system. So, each for its own purpose.

Thanks for your thoughts, Dixa! I actually do get paid for my landscape work, and I've sold just as many large prints (e.g., 20 x 30 to 40 x 60) from cropped sensors as I have from my full frame (5D, 1Ds) or MF (645D) systems. Although I do agree with you about the quality differences between the various system, I'm not sure the average person buying prints really cares. That's just one landscape photographer's perspective, however.

Thanks, Opseuman! Totally agree with you about he Panda shot. In fact, I've title it, "It's Panda-monium Here!"

Re: OMD shots - SD trip

I have a Nikon D800 and was debating on getting an OM-D for those time I want to travel light and after seeing these photos I went ahead and ordered one since Amazon now has them in stock. Beautiful shots.
