    Taken with my om-d, first few shots taken with the new lens.
    mostly my twins. The lady in orange was at a bbq restuarant, I tried to get one while she was working and as soon as she saw the camera fingers went up "cheese" thats japanese for you. and a couple of my cats. one was hidden in my bag before I left for work.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Good onya for getting this lens, for the price it produces amazing images. Looks like it missed focus on pictures 1 & 3. In time you'll learn when the lens is focused properly, as it does have a few quirks every now and then.

    I like your choice in cats, they look very comfortable.

    And the b&w of your child is superb...

    Yeah the b+w one is my favourite to date.
    Yeah the cats were both kittens that I rescued.
    the cat in pic #one was being attacked by a crow when I found
    her, she would have just opened her eyes, couldn`t walk. must have crawled
    away from its mum. now she loves getting into places she shouldn`t and wont leave my side if I`m around. the other cat under the car just thinks he`s the king.

    +1 - Completely agree. Some very nice shots. Sadly, you do have to check focus on this lens to make sure it locked on the right spot.

    Did you break into my house just to take pictures of my cat?


    Great pics, btw, I especially like the pic with the flames. I'm jealous of the 45mm. Really wish I could get one...

    Most of these seem out of focus to me. Or maybe the lens just looks soft and not contrasty

    My wife just saw the pics of your cat, she thought it was ours.

    Yeah a lot are out of focus?? at the time of shooting they looked great in the evf. but the end results weren`t great??

    here`s one I took at the beach yesterday cropped for composure.
