Mike - the second photo is brilliant - reminds me of those old Japanese prints. Very well-composed. Was it brutal hauling the lens along on the hike?People always talk about how poor this lens is, but I'm yet to be disappointed. It gives me nice 16x20s. That's enough for me.
From a recent hike to the summit of Golden Ears:
1/320 263mm f/8
1/1600 70mm f/5.6
Granted, its a bit of a heavy lens to carry up a mountain...the Oly 75-300 would have been more tolerable in that respect, but I'm willing to carry an extra 200g if it means that I don't need to spend $800-900.
Thanks, I got a number of good pictures on the hike, but that one is definitely one of my favorites...I might create a thread for some of the others ones that turned out well. I had the 9-18mm and PL25 with me as well.Mike - the second photo is brilliant - reminds me of those old Japanese prints. Very well-composed. Was it brutal hauling the lens along on the hike?
Great shots! Just curious, what's the shutter speed on these shots? It woudl be great if you could share the shots set-up info. These are amazingly sharp!I'm still aiming to expand the variety of images for this lens. This post should send the thread to two pages. All five these were taken with a Panasonic G2, hand held without any cropping. No IS? No problem.
