CelticOdyssey's current gear

Leica D-LUX 5
Olympus OM-D E-M5 II
Olympus PEN-F
Usually near at hand, have had it since it was introduced, and will keep it forever. Small, with simple but complete menus, and fast to use. Beautiful and handy case, and best of all - takes great pix.
I really enjoy this camera, now that I'm familiar with most of its menus. Super with the 300mm Pro. OLY is really making wonderful cameras and lenses!
An impressive street shooter, and great companion to the E-M5ii. Mono effects fun, but I always shoot a RAW with each image. Best with small prime lenses.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm 1:1.8
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 300mm F4 IS Pro
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1.8
Nothing particularly exotic about it, but small and light, quality-built and competent in any light.
Finest lens I've ever owned. Its sharpness and rich images still astound me; solidly built.
A nice lens that's sharp and has good bokeh, but feels plasticky.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm 1:2
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm F1.8
Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm F1.4
This lens and the Panasonic/Leica 25 are the ones I use the most.
Terrific medium telephoto. Sharp and solid.
Really a fine lens- like it much better now that I learned how to stop it from rattlesnaking on my OLY cameras. (turn flicker control OFF)
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 ASPH
Gives me the purple blobbies if I'm not careful, and they are impossible to totally remove in LR. And since I refuse to use the recommended fix, I use this lens only in a pinch.
Other gear:
  • Olympus Zuiko Digital 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14

CelticOdyssey's wish list

Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm F0.95 Aspherical

I may not ever own anything like this, but would love to play with such a fast, wide lens. Manual focus wouldn't bother me a bit.

Olympus PEN E-PL3
Never was completely comfortable with this, my first foray into m4/3. I found it a bit clumsy.
