    OMD with 20/1.7. This was my first visit with the new gear and I was pleasantly surprised with the performance.

    Both of these images benefitted from a little desaturation.

    The Jellyfish gallery is a tough shoot. Really low light, plus DOF issues. I'm really happy that the noise (ISO 2500 at f3.5) was easily handled in lightroom. Plus the 4 year old was running around like a little maniac at the time.

    Nice!
    Did you use a polarizer to shoot the glass or carefully manage your angles? :smile:
