    Just a few snap shots from my vacation in Kauai the first week of August. Just postcard stuff. G5 with 14-42 plastic kit zoom and the Panny 45-150 zoom. I actually used the 14-42 mainly. Straight RAW to JPEG conversion and re-sized down. This and the Big Island are my two favorite Hawaiian islands.

    The beautiful farm land. I bet those cows are happy:

    End of a hard day, watching a surfer and having a cocktail:

    Nice! My wife and I just got back from a week in Maui--had a great time, but still prefer Kauai for its more relaxed and undeveloped feel. I'll post some of my shots soon...

    Those shots say a lot about your love for the islands. They also show off a lens that everybody thinks is garbage.

    I use the 14-42 a lot of the time. I have two of them.

    Aside from a difficult zoom function in video (it really sticks) the lens works well enough. I manage output in LR5 where I re-build everything in PP. For me a lens is a compose and capture device and the darkroom is where the magic and fun begin. It's been that way for forty years.

    Will trade up to the 12-35 when I can afford but am in no rush.

    Also use the 14.5 and 20 on an E-PL2 when shooting from pockets.

    Well they say that if you stick a broom stick in the ground on Kauai it will sprout roots and grow. It's the same with a camera, just point and shoot and you will have a nice image. For anyone who hasn't been I can't over emphasize how beautiful this island is.
