    Hello everyone,

    First image-only post here. Just getting up to speed with my OM-D and 14/17 tandem. Met up with Ranxoren to get the 17 in San Jose and took a trip across Highway 84 to the coast where I grew up. The light was amazing - I don't usually shoot barns but the light demanded it. Made my way through Half Moon Bay and up to the Moss Beach bluffs above Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and had the place to myself for the most part until a nice guy with a 4x5 field camera showed up just before the sun went down.

    Really enjoying this camera. I was concerned I'd be losing a substantial amount of image quality when switching from my former camera - an X-Pro 1 - but have been impressed at what the Olympus is delivering.

    Thanks! Just webs in this set. For landscapes I like wide and the 14 suited the look I wanted.

    The 17 is very sharp and focuses very quickly. Can't wait to do some street shooting with it in the city this week!

    Man... I am considering both lenses.. more the 14 since I have the Sigma 19.... Between the 14 & 17 which did you like better?

    Can't go wrong with the 14. I like how it renders and spent only 170 shipped from within the US via eBay. Very sharp and crisp.

    With that having been said I've owned both lenses for exactly one day hehe. I picked both up yesterday and took them out for a shoot, the results you see above. :) Click on the photos above and they'll take you to my flickr page where you can see larger versions and view EXIF info.
