    Hello folks,

    unpacked the new silver GF2- removed the 14mm, and stuck on the G1. It looks tiny.

    Took a quick walk through the family room and dining room. Very little post, mostly to square things up as I'm not used to the FOV. It's not the 20 by any means, but it's not chopped liver either...

    I have a real urge to compare it to the 14-45 at 14mm pretty darn quick.

    Lovely...you have a very "woody" home. It's so neat and tidy. I have an eight year old and I don't think my house has looked that tidy in years.

    Such a beautiful home.

    The 14: try it for street and environmental portraits, and try it for landscapes. A very nice lens.

    Nice home, Alan! In fact, it's very nice that I think the lens became secondary :smile:

    Lol I think your lovely house is overshadowing the fact that it was shot with the 14mm.

    "Lens? What lens? Just look at that marvelous interior!" :biggrin:

    I bet it would look like a run-down old shack were it not for the 14mm! :thumbup:

    Alan, I've seen photos of your house before and, as everyone else is saying, its really beautiful. I'm sure you enjoy living in it far more than we enjoy looking at it.

    The lens will probably only be marginally sharper than the kit lens at 14mm - nothing I'd probably even notice. But its a bit better in low light and there's just SOMEthing about walking around with a prime lens and framing with it, knowing its your only option. I really love it and that's one of my favorite focal lengths, so that lens always spends a lot of time on whatever m43 body I have. It looked pretty silly on the GH2, like the camera had a pimple on its caved in nose, but it looks just right on the Pen and GF style cameras.

    Enjoy!

    -Ray

    Hello Everyone.

    Thanks so much for all of the compliments on my home.

    Parts of it are very very old, in fact, one portion not in the images was originally a 1 room school house, The Willis School. That portion now serves as the kitchen, my office, a bedroom, and a bath.

    There is another loft style room above the dining room which served as the original master bedroom, now a guest room.

    It all looks so much better based on being shot with the 14mm, I'm sure of it.

    Ray: I'll bet your right as far as IQ goes between it and the 14-45 zoom, which is a pretty darn nice little lens. Still though, inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks again everyone for all the compliments, I think I probably should have shot something a little more vanilla.

    Cheers, Alan

    Alan, I'm the 427th person to mention it, but still: lovely home! :thumbup: The pictures have a clean look, very attractive, probably because distortion is low. In the last 2 pictures it looks like it loses contrast at f/2.5, the flower picture at f/4 has much more punch to it.

    Yeah, well, all very true, but until we gather there for an Mu-43 meeting, there will always be the sucpicion that such a cool place is the result of extreme PS skills...:biggrin:
