    Here's a few pics of my new favourite animals. All taken with E-M5 last November.

    E-M5 + Oly 60mm

    The following platypus-pics are taken with either Oly 45mm or 60mm. Can't remember which. And man I wished I had the Oly 75mm when I was taking these shots. The 45mm was way too wide and the 60mm was way too slow. I did have the Tamron 90mm + 2x teleconv. with me too but it was also too slow and manual focusing was out of the question. The 75mm would have been perfect...

  5. I used to work with Koalas (amongst other things) many years ago. They are a very unique animal; sleeping most of the day but could be surprisingly energetic in small bursts. Oh, and the joeys (babies) are too cute! Your pics remind me that it must be about 5 or 6 years since I've even been near to a Koala.
