    Had a weekend photo roadtrip with my CG buddies to a very remote province in Riyadh KSA tourists called "Edge of the World".

    Armed with one camera, one lens, bunch of ND filters, a tripod and 3 batteries. my E-M1 and the ZD 12-60SWD will be put to a test and the result is awesome (as far as i can tell). i was amazed on how sharp this versatile lens can shoot at it's widest. I only wish i had 2 more lenses, a fisheye and a ultra wide lens for a more dramatic wide shots. we've waited til sunset knowing it will be a pain-sticking 2hrs downhill trail on a very unforgiving terrain with only the SUV's headlight as a guiding light. but unfortunately the sunset didn't show those spectacular light rays as other photographers captured.






    the best sunset i've took as the sun went dull :(

    there's my weapon of choice together with my friend's Nikons and Canons ;)(taken with my Oneplus2's camera)

    hope you guys like it

    Great shots Rey. I too recently picked up a 12-60, and am pretty amazed at how sharp it is. I also use the telephoto end of the lens a lot more than I thought I would. Owning the 7-14 PRO, I don't find the size/weight to be a big issue (though it is larger than the 12-35 f2.8 it replaced.
