    The 14 worked well at the Santa Clara county fair.

    No place better for a junk food junky.

    The food theme applied to the livestock lounge as well. After all, Thanksgiving is just a few short months away.

    You have to pity the poor piggies for being so tasty, but yummmm... bacon.

    Anyone for rump roast?

    Coming a close second to food... the rides and games.

    The kids loved the big slide...

    and screamed their heads off during the Kite Flyer ride.

    This ride was for the big kids. Nancy and I decided to pass.

    I worked the carnivals in my youth, so I was too informed to play the games. But they were fun to watch.

    Thanks, Morten. I shot it in RAW, which I think improved the results. And the large animal shots were taken at iso1250, which is something I wouldn't have attempted with jpegs.

    I hope you enjoy it. It doesn't have the same acuity as my 20/1.7, but the FOV pairs nicely with my 45/1.8. I'll probably end up carrying all 3 lenses.

    Nice! Our fair is in September and I'm looking forward to using the 14mm this year.

    I like your images Frank. I really like your processing style.

    The 14 is a super lens. I keep mine even though I also have the 12mm 2.0 Zuiko. I actually prefer the 14.

    Great shots,I love my 14mm and send thanks to Amin daily for his heads up.
    One point I would like to make that I think sometimes the vignette is a little too heavy on your shots. All down to taste I guess.
    Thanks for showing.

    Thanks for the feedback. It made me look at my post with fresh eyes. I like vignettes, but get a little heavy handed at times. :redface:
