    Shot many Images today, and will upload as I post process them, but here are a few for starters.

    Shot with the E-pl1 and the 14mm Panny prime, my GOTO dayshot lens, it is sharp, captures awesome color and a essential lens for me.



    Old wagon, pumpkins, the season is upon us..

    mca14-1.


    McCall's Country Store, captured with the wideangle 14mm..

    mca14-2.


    some of the goodies inside, I bought the one in the front..

    I love the crisp landscape detail the E-PL1 produces even with the kit lens. The shot below, for example, is a straight of out the camera jpeg taken with the 14-42 kit lens

    "up to your 'ears' in corn"

    mca14-22.



    There were 3 cornfield mazes, each of varying diffulculty, it was a blast trying to find your way through, one of them took over 1 hr.

    mca14-23.


    the New Mexico skys, as always, was rather lovely, and the weather was perfect...

    finding these little signs let you know you are heading in the right direction, eventually looking for a red flag.

    Great series... love the colors! Gotta love that little 14mm, huh?!

    By the way, that desert corn looks way more green than our local corn. I suspect irrigation! :eek:

    Looking at the shots in the chair - you really are tiny! You manage to get a lot out of that camera/lens combo. The 14mm is a nice lens. Great set! :thumbup:

    You know, the e-pl1 is the cheapest offing for a micro 4/3rds, and the 14mm is the cheapest prime.

    paired together they pack a WALLOP!

    mca14-40.


    shot from inside and on top of the hill, using one of the e-pl1's art filters (1st time I ever use one), I don't remember which one I used..

    shot this shot after sliding down the slide from the mine shaft building, that
