That's the 14-45, generally felt to be far superior to the newer 14-42. And I've just bought a used 14-45 on Amazon - should get it Tuesday. I'll sell the kit lens.a lens not to be under-estimated in it's own right (assuming the first version with the metal mount)
Thanks. I agree about the adapted lenses - I've got a bit of a collection from my film days and friends unloading unwanted kit on meFirst two are great! I love the exposure differential between foreground and bacground in the first, and the composition of the second. The last is a dramatic perspective, but I must admit that I have never seen a fisheye image that I wouldn't have preferred to have seen taken with an UWA lens, even if the coverage is less minus the fish effect.
With adapted lenses I found that it was good to mess around with them if you already had them or could find them cheaply, but I could never seriously build a system around adapted lenses. They're still fun to use, but the native m4/3 lenses do it so much better.
Thanks Jock - all these shots are straight out of the camera, Dynamic B&W jpeg setting. The phonebooth was in shade and the Minster (Cathedral) was in bright sunlight; I exposed for the interior of the booth and the available light did all my post-processing for me.Russ,
I like the way the Coins and Cards booth pops relative to the Cathedral in the background. I thought it was a post-processing effect.
As to the bottom shot, obviously the catherdral builders were sampling some of the grapes that grew during the Medieval Warm Period -- the building is bent!
