    Out today despite the torrential rain and I was determined to capture some images as the air is clear between the showers.

    I grabbed this images with the GX1+45-175X lens - a nice lens but I personally think not as good as the 45-200lens.





    And local fruit on a stall in town

    Thanks folks,

    Just basic editing for Contrast, colour, levels, USM.

    I find that the 45-175 performs well at closer lengths but at max focal length is not as sharp as I would like, the older 45-200 (that I have since sold) was for me a better performer so may be tempted to go back down that route.
