    Very nice colors. It gives the E-P3 out-of-camera images a run for its money.

    Wow infinite DOF to the rescue! (especially the first pic)
  6. I didn't think that there would be a huge difference in DOF between this and m4/3, but given the aperture values on the first two and the distance to subject it does appear to be noticably deeper.

    The first 3 were shot with the kit 10-30mm...
    The last one was shot with the 30-110mm....

    The bird photo is very good. Nicely done. Let's see some action photos!

    Nice colours and great shots :)

    Goes to show its still all about the photographer and not the camera.

    Agree, the bird photo is great, very sharp with nice DoF.
    First two photos look totally P&S to me, very flat, infinite DoF, lacking that 3D pop which forces you to focus on the subject (those aren't landscape shots). I bet they'd look much better if taken with m43 and Oly 12mm or Panny 20mm.

    Since they were taken with the 10-30, a more accurate comparison would be with the Olympus 14-42 :smile:

    I like them, nice and sharp. :smile:
    And small sensors do have benefits. (large dof)

    Review of the J1 in this months Popular Photography magazine is about the most harsh review I've ever seen printed in a major publication.

    This is to be expected. Personally, I prefer harsh, honest reviews rather than fluffed up "feel good" reviews :smile:

    Interesting, since Popular Photography seems to have become one of those publications that never meets a camera or lens it doesn't like - only some more than others. I'll have to check it out.

    I love the Stingray pic! Mostly the composition and reflections , I can see it framed and hanging on my wall! Did you desaturate the colors? or is that just how it came out?
