    I visited the Rosacrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose last Thursday. The 14/2.5 was super for the outdoor architectural shots.

    E-PL2    ---    14mm    f/5.6    1/1000s    ISO 200


    E-PL2    ---    14mm    f/5.6    1/1000s    ISO 200

    And the 55/3.5 was pretty neat once we got indoors.

    E-PL2    ---       f/1.0    1/25s    ISO 1250

    The 20/1.7 came in handy, too.

    E-PL2    ---    20mm    f/2.2    1/60s    ISO 250

    But by far, the 45/1.8 was my favorite museum lens out of the trio.

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 1250

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.0    1/80s    ISO 250

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 250

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.8    1/80s    ISO 250

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.8    1/30s    ISO 1250

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.0    1/60s    ISO 1000

    Here's my buddy Philippe, snuggling up to King Tut (I think).

    E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.2    1/30s    ISO 1250

    Great set! Did you use a polarizer with the 14mm? I'm looking forward to giving my 14 a workout this week on vacation in the Finger Lakes region of New York. I find that I prefer the color and contrast of the 45mm to that of the 20mm. I expect to use the 14 and the 45 quite a bit this week, but may use the 20 for indoor shots.

    Thanks, Bob. I didn't use a polarizer, but I used the dramatic art filter on the 14mm shots and on some of the indoor shots with the 45.


    Great combination. Those are my 3 go-to lenses. I'll look forward to your vacation pictures.

    What happened to make the kind of blotchy exposures that are in #1 and #2? They both have strange dark and light areas that appear very unnatural. Is that some PP artifact?

    The interior shots are very nice though.

    The blotchy areas are a function of Oly's dramatic art filter.
