    Hi from Sydney. Been following the forum for over a year now.
    It's torrential rain outside at the moment. Thought I'll post some Camelias taken a few weeks ago when it was fine and sunny in mid winter. They were taken hand held at f8 with different lenses (kit zoom, Tamron 90 f2.5, Minolta bellow's zoom 100 f4; all jpeg straight out of EPL1 and resized.

    Thank you KVG. My daughter's got a GF1 with the marvellous 20 1.7 which I often borrow. I on the other hand has a whole bucketful of heritage lenses which I haven't used for 30 years: clumsy, but a lot more fun.

    Hi Kau
    looking out my front windows I see the camelias budding and flowering. As soon as the rain and wind stops I'm out there with my camera, just like you. Look out for my photos too.
    Cheers

    Thank you all for your warm welcome. I suppose part of the attraction of using heritage lenses is the nostalgia that 1/3 of a century ago, we spend 6 months saving for each of them working after classes. That said, maybe I'll post a few more (this time in reverse order: bellow's lens, Tamron, kit zoom). Thanks for indulging me.
