    I attended the annual Grandfather Mtn Nature Photography weekend near Boone, NC last weekend. I decided to leave the heavy Nikkors at home and went in with just the E-M5 and a few choice lenses. I ended up placing 2nd in Wildflowers with the Lensbaby and E-M5. The rest with the 75-300mm Oly.

    Just to be very clear, the OM-D didn't place in the competition, the images YOU made with the OM-D placed in the competition. Don't let that new toy of yours hog all the credit for your fine work.

    Not to hijack this thread, but which model of Lensbaby do you have? I've been curious about them for a while, but I'm a bit confused by their various offerings. I think I'd lean toward the "Tilt Transformer" which as I understand it you mount Nikon F lenses on, but that model no longer appears on their website which leads me to believe it is no longer being made.

    Very creative use of the lensbaby, it's a superb image and I'm not surprised by your success. :smile:

    Edit: The other two aren't bad either!

    I am using the Tilt Transformer but I understand they discontinued it in favor of a regular m4/3 LB. i started with a Nikon LB on an adapter, but sold it and got dedicated M4/3 model. I love it. IBIS and evf work well for it.

    Beautiful shot of the bird, you can really feel the piercing gaze in that one.
