    Hi I'm new here. Just got my Pen E-P2 last week and my 20mm 1.7 today. One of my hobbies when I go out to eat is to take shots of food. I picked it up from my wife's cousin who was an avid traveler. It's hard to take my DSLR out everywhere and my small point and shoot camera could never do the food justice. Here are some of my first food shots with my E-P2 and the 14-42mm kit lens.

    These shots were taken at a local favorite Chinese restaurant that serves some of the best noodle dishes in the area. The dish I absolutely love there is the pan fried dumpling.

    Ohh man. If can only smell the aroma of sesame oil and five spice in that beef noodle soup, I'd be there in a jiffy...

    Yay for food shots!

    Here's a picture of the dinner I made last New Year's Eve. On the menu was rack of lamb and lamb chops, pasta and tossed salad. The photo was taken with my EP-1 and the Oly 9-18mm zoom.


    The dessert picture was taken at a Red Lobster a couple of weeks ago with my GF1 and the Pany 20mm.

    One of the main reasons I bought the 20/1.7 is to take photos of food. Here are some of mine:
