    I posted a thread a week or two ago that I was getting two new lenses (12/2, 45/1.8) for my birthday. I have had a crazy-busy couple of weeks, so I have only had them mounted about once each :mad: 
    My life should simplify a little by next week, but I wanted to share a few photos since I am obsessing over my new toys and dying to put them to use.
    I have traditionally found that I have better success with longer focal lengths than wider ones, so I am really going to experience a learning curve with the 12/s that just arrived!

    Here are a few with the 25 1.4 I have been using the last few months:
    Please notice that I followed the forum rules and shared cat photos :cool: 
    E-PM1    ---    25mm    f/1.8    1/100s    ISO 1600

    Handheld...but I got a new little tripod and a neutral density filter this week that I can't wait to try out!
    E-PM1    ---    25mm    f/16.0    1/4s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---    25mm    f/1.4    1/100s    ISO 200

    These are my first attempts with the 12/2:
    E-PM1    ---    12mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---    12mm    f/2.2    1/80s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---    12mm    f/2.2    1/125s    ISO 200

    And the 45/1.8:
    E-PM1    ---    45mm    f/1.8    1/1000s    ISO 200

    E-PM1    ---    45mm    f/1.8    1/1000s    ISO 200

    Thanks for looking!

    Very nice images, they show the different "character" of the three lenses.

    The 12mm images look best but the 45mm is a focal length I could really love (and at a price I can afford with a little effort).

    I love the perspective of the last cat photo with the 12mm, I'm guessing you had to get pretty close with that lens to get that photo. I have the 45mm and it is an amazing little lens, someday I will probably end up picking up the 12mm if the price comes down or there is a nice mint used one for a good price!
