Boat Trip on Moreton Bay

Discussion in 'Scenic, Architecture, and Travel' started by Luckypenguin, Mar 18, 2011.

  1. During the week I had the opportunity to take a boat trip out on Moreton Bay which is the body of water between Brisbane and the islands that protect it from the Pacific Ocean. It was quite a nice day so I don't know how I've ended up with so many B&W images so I might try to add some more colourful ones later!

    My original intention was to take my E-P1 with some of my 4/3 lenses and an MMF-2 adapter but with a last minute change of mind I ended up taking an Olympus E-410 as the camera body. A while ago I had purchased some 4/3 lenses with an E-410 body (it was actually the other way around but I wanted the lenses to try on my E-P1 primarily). I've also bought a few more 4/3 lenses here and there when the price has been right. If you've never used any of the higher grade 4/3 lenses (Zuiko or Panaleica) they are some amazing pieces of glass. It's a shame that 1) the development of 4/3 camera bodies seems to be at an end, and 2) the autofocus of the lenses is so painfully slow when used on a Micro 4/3 body.

    The decision to take the E-410 over the E-P1 was to decide if I want to keep the camera body to go with the lenses. I think ultimately it is probably not practical to continue to use the full-size 4/3 lenses with a Micro 4/3 body. I was fairly happy with the results from the E-410 although as you might expect I think the E-P1 is a step above it in most areas (not AF!). The lenses I used were the Zuiko 9-18mm, Leica 14-50mm, and Zuiko 50-200mm.
