    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.
    PL 25/1.4
    PC100192L.
    Oly 45/1.8
    PC100337L.

    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. [​IMG] PC100177L.
    PC100124L.

    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.
    then got one of the white gators.
    PC100249L.

    then a shot of papa noel. down here santa uses gators for his pirogue.
    PC100250L.

    as we hit monkey hill area we got mugged by two ducks, demanding handouts. they got right in front of me.
    PC100199L.
    my daughter pointed out that they wanted a handout, sure enough they followed her when she walked over to a feed station.
    PC100200L.
    they went right up to her to get some duck feed.
    PC100201L1. PC100216L.
    they were not happy when there was no more.
    PC100217L.

    this pelicans were hanging out and i am like the resolution of the PL 25.
    PC100198L.

    went to the jaguar area and got a few shots through the plexiglass. PC100262L.

    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,
    [​IMG] PC100346L.

    went to the aviary area and the ponds where the ducks hang out in the fall. light proved a big challenge here.
    PC100328L. PC100322L.

    The Oly 45 is not bad. It would be nice to 150/2.0 prime but this will work for now.
    PC100270L.
    PC100282L.

    next trek will be a walk along the river.
    enjoy
