. Had a fun day out in downtown Melbourne yesterday taking a few shots with my GX1 in what is surely going to be one of the last days of genuine warmth and sunshine before our notorious 5 month winter kicks in. I decided to take my new, or seldom used lenses just for kicks and discovered 3 things. 1. I really enjoyed using my Pany 20/1.7 and I am comfortable keeping it alongside the PL25 in my kit. For me, it is different enough. 2. Love my new Pany 7-14mm, fantastic lens ...but it will initially anyway, require a more considered approach to framing my shots coz man, 7mm is WIIIIIIIDE !! 3. Despite the Oly 45 being a marvellous little lens that has for many (myself included) all but relegated the 'fast 50' to the bottom drawer, I actually had a lot of fun with my last remaining legacy lens...the Asahi Pentax SMC Takumar (50mm f/1.4) and it has a loving home in my kit bag. The Original Google ...with the P7-14mm (admittedly cropped a fair bit) Seeing Double ...with the P20/1.7 Loyal ...with the SMC Takumar 50mm/1.4 .......................................... Just out of curiosity, what do you guys think of this type of B+W processing ? I realize it is quite heavy on the deep black (much like the image below which I took last week with the PL25 and posted on the "Real Street Thread") ...not quite hardcore 'Film Noir' but definitely strong black in both. I've only just recently began to play with Nik SFX and BW conversions and find I'm quite liking this heavy handed approach. What do you guys think ?
