Abandoned - Le Puy-en-Velay - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-12 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Exploring Le Puy-en-Velay in the evening. It is hard to grasp the age and sense of history at times of the buildings and alleys we wandered down.

Day 0 of 12 - Le Puy-en-Velay: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.

Here are some quick (SooC) shots from the GF1 with the 12-32mm OIS zoom. It's somewhat wintery outside, and of course Auckland is in Level 4 lockdown, so I am confined to subjects around the house.

Some B&W - The dynamic B&W setting is in the Film Mode section of the menu, whereas in my GM5 and some later models, that setting is already a filter.

Now I understand why MFT users are saying that older 12MP sensors give that certain film look. The 12-32mm has really good contrast with this camera.

@Tilman Paulin Lovely shot, Tilman.

However, I still think that a decent longer FL lens is better than tight cropping. With very rare exceptions.

I think that this shot is more a tribute to your skill than anything else.

It certainly shows that a 20 MPx high pixel density sensor allows for a lot of cropping, given an excellent shot to start with.

Thanks John! :)

I agree that a quality longer focal length lens is always preferable.
I basically never crop (except for tiny amounts maybe) and always prefer to be able to compose with the right framing in the viewfinder…

In this case I was just thinking aloud… I tried the same photo with the 75-300mm - and the 75mm 1.8 just was so much better.

I think one of the main weaknesses of the 75-300mm comes into play here - when photographing towards the sun it suffers from bad lack of contrast… I bought the lens hood for it - but of course didn’t use it :D
The photos were also taken through a plexiglass door - so I very likely caught a bad/different reflection when using the 75-300mm at the longer focal length…
I’ll have to do a more technical / fair comparison basically … :D

I really like the 75-300mm for what it is, and rarely use the 75mm 1.8… Guess that result took me by surprise :D
