    Headed to London with a few friends to grab some shots, I had the 5D and OMD with me, but this first probably the fav of the evening for me as being able to hand held for 0.5secs and get the shot I wanted without worrying about tripods is so awesome.

    One of the guys I was with had his 5D3 and 1DX with him and said, I feel like I want to sell all my gear and get an Olympus OMD when he saw what it was capable of. :biggrin:

    Everytime I visit a city the OMD is always the camera which captures the most interesting images for me.

    Love the pictures. What lens were you using ? It's a bore clicking through to Flickr and the exif

    I was in London last night for Goldfrapp at Somerset House. One of the official photographers had something looking similar size to EM-5.

    7-14 I am guessing since the purple stuff is visible in a few shots.

    Thank you very much everyone

    Thank you, thats very kind of you to say so tdekany, alot of my images use the 5D aswell, so I only ever post M43 images on here. I am seeing if funds allow but looking into getting a Quadcopter soon which will lift the OMD to help capture some unique and interesting perspectives.

    Thank you slappy, and it was the 7-14mm for all images, I originaly had the samyang 7.5 fisheye on the camera, but I hadnt really used the 7-14mm range in a city before, but it really came into its own. The purple blobs are present in these images, a little bit of an annoyance that this happens on the OMD, but its not too bad and can be edited out fairly easily which I should do really.

    Thank you, suprisingly easy with an ultra wideangle lens on this camera, the IBIS works brilliantly.

    Superb set of images Sam,

    Are these all with the OMD and what lens did you use?

    Really good example of what the camera can deliver in the right hands.

    some of mine - is it OK to post, as it is the theme? but is someone else's picture gallery?

    The first one blew me away. Good job handholding at 0,5 secs, even with the em5.

    Thanks Ian, yes all were with omd and 7-14mm lens. I actually had the samyang 7.5mm on first then realised i had never tried the 7-14 in the city.
