The last three were taken with the kit lens - all the rest with the 50mm f/1.8.

A lot of burned out white areas. I had been relying on the A setting, rather than manual exposure checking the histogram. On the Canon P&S's, I've gotten used to under exposing by .3 or .7, then going back and fixing it in Lightroom. I guess I'll have to do something similar with the E-P2, when I'm on Aperture-priority automatic.

Lens and camera combination used to take the pictures above for your reference. This is a 'silvernose' which I believe makes it an earlier version of this lens, possibly not multi-coated. In terms of looks this suits the E-P1 perfectly.

Here are some of my shots from my newly acquired OM 50mm f1.8, Thanks Art! This is a pristine example of the made in Japan version. I am dearly loving it!

It took a while to get used to the manual focus again, but they turned out well. I think I just found my portrait lens.

Hi guys! I finally migrated to digital after learning photography on my trusty OM-1, picked up an EPL-1 and having a stash of 50 1.8, 28 2.8, and 135 3.5, getting an adapter was an eventuality :)

shots with my 50 1.8

Photos from Saturday at Rousham Gardens, Oxfordshire, UK. Both at f2.8, RAW. Will update with exif later on. No tone curve adjustments, sharpening turned off in RAW. Slight saturation adjustment and a very little sharpening in Photoshop.

Such an amazing little lens - these photos are sharp and well resolving even at 100% crop. Click to view a bit larger than these "thumbnails".

Rather surprised it is so sharp...thought this was from my 24/2.8 at first
