Just some results from a short walk in a rural area near my home town.
No winter at all here in The Netherlands Temperatures are fitting Spring. + 10 to + 13 degrees Celsius at the moment.
But....The light was nice.
The first two were taken using the Lumix G...
I seem to recall an article on The Luminous Landscape website about using ETTR . I think it's found under tutorials or something like that. In a nutshell this is how it was explained.
ETTR is only useful if you shoot RAW. The idea is getting in as much information as possible in each raw file...
First result with the E-PL5 /M.Zuiko 1:1.8 /45 mm combo
Went out today for a nice walk in the rural N-E of The Netherlands
Weather was overcast, windy but good temperatures. Most importantly.....
It didn't rain. Good conditions to test out my new M.Zuiko 45mm.
GAS has to stop now. :biggrin...
Now...the both of you have me confused a bit.:smile:
I have a Pen E-PL5 and the Panny 45-150 OIS with no on/off switch.
Do I have to keep the IBIS on and will the lens OIS have no effect or should I put IBIS off and will the OIS of the lens do it's work ?
My new Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm arrived today.
When I coupled it to my E-PL5 and plugged in into the computer,
I stated the Olympus Camera Updater. It said there was a firmware update for the lens. Newest version is now installed. (version 1.1)
But......Can anyone tell me...
This is another one. Only this time I processed it with OV-3.
I think I might as well skip processing in L.R.3 and start using OV-3 instead.
The program is fast enough on my PC and I think I like the output better.
Seems logic to me, everyone has his own needs. I noticed the test about the Pana 45-150 here: Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Lens Review and that made the decision easy.
I reckon that if I ever need the extra reach I'll search for a adapted fast manual focus 1:2.8/200 prime. Or...
I just have made the decision to go for another option. The Panasonic 45-150 OIS. The overall sharpness at all the focal lenghts seems amazing according to the tests.
The lens is more compact compared to the other two mentioned but,I gladly trade in 50mm on the long end for the overall IQ on...
Thanks to all who posted. I am still amazed about the quality this combo showed. I ordered some prints of the nine pictures I showed here, and they will arrive tomorrow.
They should be the "proof of the pudding". Meanwhile I am contemplating about buying another lens. The VF-2 will most...
I thought....lets share my amazement about this little gem.
Last Monday I went to a small air-show near my home town in the rural N-E of The Netherlands. I just had bought the E-PL5 with the MK2 14-42 kit-lens. No other lenses yet.....
Not the lens to take at a air-show (I know), but...
First results with my new E-PL5
It's been a while, but since last Friday I am the happy owner of the E-PL5.
It came with the kit-lens (14-42 MKII). While my next purchases certainly
will include the Panasonic 20mm and the Olympus 45 mm, I must admit, the kit-lens isn't bad at all...
Thanks Paul for that wonderful Rikenon lens I could buy from you.
The 1,4/55 looks like everything I've always wanted and the next 3 pictures
are a small homage to it. So Tulips from Holland to you, Paul! :thumbup:
All pictures taken with the EP-L1 and Rikenon 1.4/55mm wide...

I'll guess going fully manual mode (exposure) is the way to achieve this.
Nothing to stop you in bracketing that way. Just start counting stops after the viewfinder exposure bar exceeds the 3 stop limit.
A big thanks to my Belgium neighbour for starting this thread. Just got back from Denmark. South -West of Fünen displayed some marvellous Autumn colours. It gave me a good opportunity to take the E-PL1 on a good test-drive. :wink:
Being in love with the OOC Jpeg quality of the E-PL1 on one side and facing the dilemma of wanting some sort of insurance (RAW) on the other side I was very pleased to see OV2 lets you create pre-sets of any OOC jpeg setting.
In Raw mode you can simply load a pre-set based on any setting you...
Based on Live view the image on the LCD or in the VF-2 will be enhanced so even in dark circumstances you will still be able to see the picture.
Upside: even in the darkest places you will be able to compose and do a "eyes on" judgement (sort of)
Downside: Noisy banding.
It´s a fact we all...
A couple from Denmark, last week
Some OOC jpeg's, no PP except cropping and resizing for web.
First 3 pictures were taken with the 14-42 kit-lens. The last one with a adapted SMC Takumar 4.0/50MM Macro.
More from the E-PL1 can be seen on my website.
Just sold the G1 and bought the E-PL1 with VF-2. Besides the kit lenses I use some MF glass. Manual focussing on the G1 was a breeze. The EVF
does the job, and accessing magnification was easy also...................
And then I looked through the VF-2 :smile: Oh boy, what a difference.
With the utmost respect.......But because the OP is asking about:"which one accessory for the EPL1 would you buy", I assumed he means just that. Otherwise he would have mentioned lens. Of course I can be wrong. If you buy the E-PL1 and obviously are "in" to the possibilities of the µ4/3 as a...
Definitively get the VF-2 and to close down the mentioned budget of $ 500-600 get a nice minty smc-takumar 50MM macro with µ4/3 adapter.
Oh wait......I just did that, last week. Ain't GAS a wonderful addiction.:wink:
Another example of the E-PL1 being arguably the best JPEG camera on the block. Great pictures, thanks for posting.
Having bought the same camera a week ago, makes me extra happy seeing this fine examples.:thumbup:
