Heres my first walkabout session with my shiny new Pen-F today, all shot with the 17mm 1.2 Pro. SOOC Jpegs with a smidge of clarity added in Lightroom using the Kodachrome settings from the OP in this thread (thanks for sharing them):
Wonderful pictures. Some make me want a 1.2 lens...
All of them remind me of fun youth days at Palace Pier.

There’s something magical about those 1.2 lenses for sure, I was able to pick up used copies for a reasonable price as I couldn’t quite justify the new prices to myself. Brighton is a fun place eh! It’s on my doorstep and a great place to go walkabout with camera in hand.

I nearly always use a 17mm when going walkabout. This time I set myself a challenge to spend an afternoon in Brighton only using the 45mm 1.2 and wide open. Once again using the Kodachrome profile provided by GarethB. I got a couple of images I’m quite pleased with, once again these are SOOC JPEG’s with just a smidge on the clarity slider in Lightroom:

this is becoming my favourite thread lately
set my Pen F up at the weekend from Rob's video, only took a single photo worth looking at as I have been at Silverstone officiating all weekend (no cameras on track for us), sorry for the cat shot, no idea how the vignetting got there but its not on a few others I shot that are not worth posting with my new SIGMA 60mm F2.8 DN

I decided to see what this filter would look like with landscapes - ie more green hues.

Shot this morning, transfered to phone, watermark and border via Snapseed. I think it provides a distinctive look that works really well sometimes (the house under the tree that I've cropped to 16:9 looks very atmospheric and cinematic at phone size, hopefully it's good at laptop size lol) but I suspect I'd not want to use it all the time. Learning when and where it won't work well is part of the fun, of course. Early gut feel is that it's a better filter when more reds , browns and yellows are present as a general rule. The house shot seems to work because there's some golden hues in the tree to contrast with the muted greens. And it works well with shadows for contrast. But you can all judge for yourselves.

Edit: Just home and looking on the laptop. Some of them seem a little overexposed and/or 'harsh' for want of a better term. For reference, many were shot with the Oly 40-150pro, a lens that can produce busy and contrasty oof area's and i think you can see that in some of these, particularly in foreground grass area's. Interesting.

Trying to set the Kodachrome settings on my Pen-f. I am confused about where you make these setting. Is on the CRT setting on the front dial?

No it would be "color".
You set you cam to color and choose one out of the 3 profiles you don't need.
Then you edit in the camera all parameters according the settings found in the beginning of this thread, or better, like already mentioned, in Rob Trek's video. (link is in this thread as well)
When done you save your settings to a custom setting.

well, or the easy way.
You use Olympus Workspace, you shot raw (with a Pen-F) and convince a forum member to send you a RAW file with these settings. Then you can simply copy/paste the edit settings from the RAW file to any of your existing RAW Pen-F pictures and enjoy ;)

I hope the settings shows below are correct. To get the ORF file, contact me.

Got it figured. Watched the Rob Trek video. Nice he gave credit to Gareth in the video.

I did not know you could do that, I will have to give it a go as I either shoot mono 2 + raw or this kodachrome setting +raw and I think sometimes I make the wrong choice and obviously cant go back and reshoot
