    Truly a magic lens.

    I love how you left the brown colour in the bird's eye!

    Great set of images with a "magical" lens - have to agree that the bird on a bike shot is also my favourite.

    Thanks for the feedback people.. I was lucky with the bird. It flew down onto the bike that was situated only 5 metres away from me and I just happened to have my camera at the ready...

    Iconindustries, you are very observant :)

    Phil, you're getting some great results with your 75mm, but it's merely a tool....and there is NO magic involved. It does what it does and it's up to the photographer to understand it and use it to it's best advantage. You are well on your way.

    Excellent shots. It's a good lens, but I don't see anything "magical" about it. It's your typical large-aperture Tele prime with decent bokeh. Just happens to be the first such lens for m4/3.

    Excellent work! Makes me want to grab the kit and start cruising, but it is raining and chores await.

    Am grateful for the shots, for they have convinced me that (my) adapted, seriously old, non-ai Nikkors can still do the job...

    Aya, life (and beer) is good, mates!
