    First outing with the E-P3 and trinity of lens, 14/2.5 PL 25/1.4 and Oly 45/1.8. Zoo is a good place to learn a camera and test out some features. I really like the PL 25 and Oly 45, only did one shot with the 14/2.5.

    fountain shots with each lens.
    14/2.5
    PC100187L.
    E-P3    LUMIX G 14/F2.5    14mm    f/10.0    1/80s    ISO 200

    PL 25/1.4
    PC100192L.
    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/9.0    1/125s    ISO 200

    Oly 45/1.8
    PC100337L.
    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/16.0    1/100s    ISO 400


    The 45 was just enough reach to get some shots of the white tigers. i tried out the C-AF+TR (AF Tracking) and got some interesting results. it works when they are slow moving. got a series of shots when the two tigers went to play. will post those in another thread. these are some of the better ones. these have been cropped to get the area of the picture I wanted.
    PC100086L.
    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/2.8    1/400s    ISO 200
    PC100096L.
    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/2.5    1/400s    ISO 200

    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/1.8    1/400s    ISO 200


    then switched to the PL 25/1.4 and went to S-AF mode Can I say that this is one really nice prime lens!
    went to the swamp exhibit and got some shots of the baby gators they had inside. had low light and plexiglass to deal with.
    PC100241L.
    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/1.4    1/40s    ISO 200

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/5.6    1/80s    ISO 200


    as we hit monkey hill area we got mugged by two ducks, demanding handouts. they got right in front of me.

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/7.1    1/200s    ISO 200

    my daughter pointed out that they wanted a handout, sure enough they followed her when she walked over to a feed station.

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/7.1    1/200s    ISO 200

    they went right up to her to get some duck feed.

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/7.1    1/80s    ISO 200

    they were not happy when there was no more.

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/7.1    1/80s    ISO 200

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/7.1    1/160s    ISO 200


    went to the jaguar area and got a few shots through the plexiglass.

    E-P3    LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25/F1.4    25mm    f/2.5    1/80s    ISO 200


    switched back to the Oly 45 to catch some elephant shots. tried the
    C-AF+TR (AF Tracking) again then switched back to S-AF mode,
    PC100426L.
    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/4.5    1/200s    ISO 400

    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/6.3    1/100s    ISO 200


    went to the aviary area and the ponds where the ducks hang out in the fall. light proved a big challenge here.
    PC100328L.
    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/4.5    1/100s    ISO 400

    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/4.0    1/160s    ISO 200


    The Oly 45 is not bad. It would be nice to 150/2.0 prime but this will work for now.
    PC100270L.
    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/6.3    1/250s    ISO 200

    E-P3    OLYMPUS M.45mm F1.8    45mm    f/6.3    1/160s    ISO 200


    next trek will be a walk along the river.
    enjoy
