    I can't see this one on the list (and from what I've read on the forum, it's not thought very highly of).

    Here's my efforts anyway (n00b to photography too):

    Maybe it's just me Wab but I think you're using the 'wrong' lens for the photographs you've produced.

    The 28mm is a wide-angle lens although it's equivalent m4/3 focal length is 56mm. I would suggest trying your 50mm/f1.7 - wide open at f1.7 - take much the same subjects as with your Hanimex and marvel at the difference.

    Sometimes a different lens can give better results. Keep up the good work and keep posting! :2thumbs:
