All Samyang 7.5mm f3.5
it was a shame we missed you ozfoz... didn't check the forums, but we did wait around for a while in case.
It was nice meet you guys, I had fun playing around with your lenses... I think I'm sold on the 45mm for now.
No prize winners, but here are a few shots from the day that appealed to me:
I find it sorta ironic the people in the abc building have to look at the channel 7 logo:

^^ Nice work, guys!
It was great to meet up with everyone on Saturday. Ozfoz, sorry that we missed you there. You'd probably prefer to hear that we met up and started at 3:30 on the dot, but we really must have only just missed you.
I've had a look at the memory card from my E-M5 and apart from all the inadvertent shots triggered by the touchscreen pressing against my stomach, there weren't that many photos on it. I assume that that means I probably spent more time exercising my mouth than my camera, but here are a few for starters. All with the E-M5 and 25mm f1.4
P.S. David, thanks for letting me try out the E-M5 grip!
P.P.S. Henry: Depth of field preview. That's what my Fn1 button is set to, but when the lens is already set to f/1.4 it doesn't really have any effect!
I was going to start a separate thread for the images but it looks like this is it.
I took the first shot before we met up, with the E-M5 and 25mm. All the rest are with the E-M5 and 75mm.
So, first one of the favourite street photography themes these days: photographing people photographing people. These suffer from my usual street photography problem of not getting close enough but I kind of like distant shots cropped in a wide screen movie format, in this case 2.35:1. I think the first may be my favourite for the day.
I see a number of us picked up on the ferris wheel reflection on the ABC building.
I ended up not liking any of my shots of the elephant sculpture at GOMA but I liked this shot of his small companion on the river side. I found the chain barrier kept getting in the way in all of the shots I took of the elephant so I think I'm going to have to wait until they remove the barrier if I want to get a good shot of it.
And finally, someone who obviously felt the way I felt last night. I think we all had a shot at this guy and it looks like one of us must have got him
David, I like your choice of the wide format for the first two. It suits the images very well, I feel.
A few more shots of mine below with the E-M5 and 25mm f1.4
I like the third photo... so the people in the that one didn't like you taking photos of them?
Thanks. I think there's a bit of a panorama feel to a wide format, plus a bit of a feel of a still from a movie. When it works, it seems to work well and I think it works well for the first one. I really liked the stance of the small boy in the first one, he just seemed so rock solid and focussed while his mother seemed extremely relaxed, an interesting contrast in body language. I'm still playing around with a black and white conversion of that one but I don't think I've got it yet.
Exellent images guys .. I wish if I could join . WE will arrange one OZ photowalk soon.
No, that wasn't directed at me. There must have been something much more interesting off to my left!
2 more from me.
First with the E-M5 and 75mm:
I did a black and white conversion on this but in many ways you wouldn't know it. The bit of sky showing through the clouds darkened up better in black and white, however.
Second with the E-P3 and 17mm F/2.8 pancake:
There's a fair bit of cropping on this but I think it's a lot better for it.
Great people. Great gear. But only one keeper from me...
... but what a keeper
A few below from my GH1 and 14-45mm
Henry and Rob photographing some of the local wildlife
