    I'm nearing the end of my second trip to this fantastic country and am already missing the vast, wide open spaces, endless topographical variation, and warm and generous people. They call this nation "Africa for Beginners." Well, I've visited 8 African nations many times over the past decade and this is still my favorite country to visit and photograph.

    Enclosed are some examples from the trip. All shot with the E-M1, 12-40, 7.5mm fisheye, and 45-175.

    I'm curious if some of your pics are with the fisheye and defished? If so, you did a really good job with it (Number 2 is obviously with the fisheye but the effect looks cool).

    I did use the Samyang Fisheye often on this trip. But I seldom de-fish. It is easier to just put the horizon in the middle of the frame and keep it level.
