    My Panasonic 14/2.5 arrived a few days ago. Yesterday I went for a short walk to a nearby park, and here are a few quick test shots. Oh, I also goofed around a bit in the editing with some of these shots, playing with Silver Efex and HDR Efex...

    Some spring growth on the forest floor. Nice to have the width over my 20, and some aperture flexibility compared to the 14-45.

    OK, I know, this is not a good photograph. My daughter pointed out that a swan was landing about 50m away, so I did a quick grab shot: wrong lens, and of course M4/3 cannot, under any circumstances whatsoever shoot action ( :rolleyes: ), but still i thought I would try...

    Taken from about a foot, then cropped. Not what this lens is 'supposed' to do, but hey, it was there, I had a camera and here we are.

    We'll call this bended knee.

    So now all I need is the 45/2.8 to have my prime set up. Well, I also want a small M4/3 with built in VF. We'll see.

    Love the last one - but I would use a clone stamp to get rid of that plastic bottle under the roots.

    Thank you.

    I considered removing it at the time, but decided to leave it. That bit of pollution is part of the local forest - sadly.

    Of course, from an aesthetic perspective it would indeed be better without it.

    It's an interesting tree, and I was in a bit of a rush. I want to go back and shoot it from some different angles.
