    Saw Danimal post a question on what lens to bring for museum trips (hope you had fun at your trip, Dan). I got to go the Met in NYC today, and had loads of fun with my E-PL3 and Panny 20mm F1.7. Thanks God for the maps, but it sure can get tiring; one needs to pause, and eventually, get some rest, after all that walking.

    It was great, but pretty tiring, and then it got crowded. I need to remember to go on weekdays more often. My wife would like that I'm sure. :biggrin:

    Excellent shots! I only had the Sigma 19mm with me (no P20 yet, just getting started). You can see the full set at Flickr.

    I love the Met, but no way you can see everything in one visit. Nice shots.
