    I decided to take my E-PL5 to Covent Garden at lunchtime. I'll admit I found the shots I liked were predominantly with the 75, which does make something of a mockery of using the E-PL5 (rather than my E-M5), but the reason I use the 75 to death isn't its focal length (which is generally inconvenient) but its amazing off the scale sharpness.

    Every one of these shots is superb, but the last scores extra for its humour and the light in the first is simply sensational! Wow!

    Thank you, (unsurprisingly) I agree! Bright sunlight and flare don't have to be a problem to be disguised if they compliment the rest of the image.

    I agree about the humour in the last but my favourite is the second for the expressions on the faces.

    Another set I would be proud to have taken taken ... :drinks:
