    I was in Cheltenham today with the OMD+25mm and took some street shots that I then converted to B&W using Silver Efex Pro.

    Plan on being there myself in a few weeks on holiday. Taking the OMD and with the 17mm and 45mm, I hope to have the perfect travel setup. Expect to have the 17mm on as the walkaround, but taking the 45 along for those times when it shines.
    Have been looking forward to visiting the Cotswolds for a long time and now all we need is for it to warm up and stay fine.

    Awesome shots!!

    I really like how the OM-D files react to B+W or Monochrome processing. I am almost tempted to convert everything to monochrome sometimes.

    Really nice shots. The 25 mm focal length looks ideal for the street. Is it the Panasonic 25 mm

    Thanks all for the nice comments.

    The 25 I use is the LeicaPanasonic 25mm f1.4 that is a superb lens (had it on my GX1 where it rattle-snaked constantly), on the OMD it appears even faster to focus and I do not experience the noise anymore.

    I find the 25 a perfect lens for me when doing street and it certainly renders images that appear to have a nice 3D effect and meet my requirements until I can afford the 12mm then I can switch between the 2.

    Thanks Bhupinder, I am really enjoying my affair with the OMD and find it a very different machine to the GX1 and a joy to use.

    Tom,

    I am sure you will be delighted with your 25, it is bigger and heavier than equivalent lenses but beautifully made and it comes with a lens shade.

    Good luck and I look forward to seeing your images from the new lens.
