    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.
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/2.5    1/1600s    ISO 200



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

    mca14-2.
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/2.5    1/1600s    ISO 200



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

    mca14-3.
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/2.5    1/15s    ISO 400

    mca14-4.
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/2.5    1/25s    ISO 250



    I love doing shots of the unique New Mexico stores and shops..

    mca14-5.
    E-PL1    ---    14mm    f/2.5    1/25s    ISO 250



    More images to come, if you like them so far, keep checking this thread as it grows, another day in the life of LittleMT captured through a lens... I love it.

    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

    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!
