    A few of my favourites so far - all with the E-P1 + mZD 14-42mm

    A great, flexible lens - good for near macro shots, surprisingly good bokeh.

    Brian - 14-42

    Well done indeed, Brian ...fantastic results from what seems to be a hugely under-rated lens.

    Certainly from the photographs on this thread, this lens looks to be quite good and moving between near and far.

    I love the rose by the way, voyager.

    Only had the E-P1 a few days, but like it better than GF1, also got a lot to learn. This is a shot of some Snow Drops in the back garden, slightest little breeze and they wave about all over the place.

    Hello all,

    I have to admit, the E-P1 was the tipping point to finally get myself into photography. I am new to all of this, but I'm learning lots :). Despite some of the negative reviews I hear of this lens, I love its FOV. Here is a picture at the dog park that came out surprisingly well.
