    Hi Friends!

    I've been longing for something different in my bag, earlier this year I committed to the zooms (12-35 and 35-100) in lieu of primes to minimize lens changes and the need for a 2nd :43: body. And somehow, somewhere the pandemic GAS attacked again and I ended up with the Pana-Leica 45mm Macro-Elmarit F/2.8*. *Courtesy of Monk3y, a well-deserved thumbs up Seller!

    The advent of the PL45 just further sealed my commitment to the :43: system, it's more difficult to get out by now so no Goodbye Micro 4/3s thread from me I guess. :confused:

    Enough with the ad lib of my GAS confessions... Anyway, just want to share some photos actually. I have tried hard to find some interesting subjects, but somehow ended up with these instead. :biggrin:


    All taken with GH3, PL45:

    Whew, thanks man for the kind words. I hope to keep up with the lens though... it's been nice to shoot close-ups and macro. I'm beginning to like this lens much.

    OTOH, I'm looking forward to more of your GR shots, personally considering this added to my bag in the near future. Cheers!
