    Gradually getting there with the E-P2 for night shots.

    That's awesome. Which lens were you using? It's really crisp, and I'm not sure that the kit zoom I have could let me pull this off.

    ...and all the pedestrians are drunk and can't move quickly. Even all the way out at 14mm, the kit zoom is f/3.5, and this scene is frozen. If it was the kit zoom, I'm astounded; I can't manage anything like this in that sort of light, and it's not for want of trying.

    The EXIF shows:

    Camera: Olympus E-P2
    Lens: OLYMPUS M.14-42mm F3.5-5.6Shot at 14 mm
    Exposure: Auto exposure, Program AE, 1/60 sec, f/3.5, ISO 1600
    Flash: Auto, Did not fire

    My guess is the OP has some great steadiness.

    This is a well executed shot.

    Thanks for the kind comments folks. A 1/60th of a sec shutter speed is just about the limit for me with night shots. But, that high ISO factor is the real clincher for this type of shot.

    This image was straightened up in PS.

    I'm currently looking for nice lens with f/2 or less, but in my city it is hard to even buy any other Oly or Panny lens.
