First shot!

Here's a quick, quick first shot I took when I got home with my new 12-35/2.8 lens. Indoors - taken with my E-M5... and here is my daughter's reaction when I told her the price. SOOC, JPEG. (scroll to bottom of this post for link to the mega-sized image for high-res detail - also untouched)... and yes, those are the dark green color of her eyes. The lens delivers! The detailing and tacky-sharpness on this indoors shot is impressive enough for my needs...

Looks great, sharp and contrasty! And you have a beautiful kid! :smile:

I know I'm getting anal here but I won't let you persuade me that easily to part with 1000€ :tongue: So, could we have a few available light (no flash) photos when you have the time please? If anything else, with flash it's sometimes difficult to discern vigneting from light fall-off due to flash exposure.

May you enjoy your new lens!!

More images from my 12-35/2.8 on E-M5. Nearly all shots in A mode or P mode. SOOC, JPG. (I posted some in another thread, but realized they belong here)

A view from my commuting train station as I was standing on the platform. The bridge is for trains and crosses over the Hudson River intersection.

In Grand Central at F/11 for a 2.5" second exposure handheld as I propped myself up against a wall behind me. The scene is the super-busy Dishes counter for breakfast foods. Blurred parts of images are 'ghosts' of people walking quickly throughout the station... Check out the whirring of the chef behind the counter. And, oh, btw, the indoor lighting in GCT is *nasty*. It is a combo of incandescent and fluorescent - if anyone has a suggested for WB this, let me know!

I am going to call this one the poor man's Multi-Target, DaveBox, ResChart all rolled into one. :rofl: You know, the kind that the other tests sites put up for intense scrutiny. Of course, this was not done in a studio, and it was shot through grimy glass window in a shoppe front to make matters worse, but so be it. It's the display window for Pylones in GCT. Again, take it for what it's worth. Indoor shot, no flash, no polarizer to cut down glare (not even a UV/haze filter).. no excuses...

Random. After I took this image, I complimented her on her red shoes offsetting her black suit. Seemed to put her in a better mood than she was in when I took the photo.

Random. She kept looking over her shoulder--alternating with texting--looking for a friend. Shot wide open at 2.8; yes, check out blown highlights to upper right of screen. However, given I had a nanosecond to take this shot, and absent bracketing or adjusting EV and losing the shot, I think it did well.

More texting. Hmmmm :horse:

Thanks for these, the 'Grand Central' one is a cracker - that lens looks super-sharp and contrasty. Panasonic always seem to come up with the goods lens-wise, I have to give them that....

Very Impressive. You have a steadier hand (even propped) than I.
Tripods are not allowed inside Grand Central Terminal. I think we are allowed to use Monopods, but the police have been known give you funny/suspicious looks if you use that. Plus, I was coming from the train and I dont regularly carry a monopod with my newspaper and briefcase. Though I imagine it might be more useful than a newspaper at times... :rofl:

Another from my commute this morning, just to show that my daily trip to work is not all glamorous. This shot is from the underside of an overpass that the train rolls through every morning...

Unfortunately, I had to shoot this THROUGH the glass of my moving train, but did the best I could under the circumstances. I must admit, the E-M5 + Pana 12-35 makes it easy to get quite a few 'keeper' shots even in less than ideal conditions. :thumbup:

Shutter 1/60, ISO 500, F/2.8 on E-M5. SOOC, JPEG on "Natural" mode.

Photos look great! I'll be heading down to NYC for a week at the end of July, lets see if I can get some nice photos like yours.

There sure is some pronounced CA in the sides of the frame, especially on the right side in the one with the stacked chairs ("Outdoor Cafe in Bryant Park"). Look up in the RH corner at the tree. Nasty!

Those photos were taken with the E-M5 which does not correct for CA in camera. However, I believe the Panasonic bodies will correct for CA in camera when used with a Lumix lens (like this).

Thanks. I have a Panasonic GX1 so I guess it would be corrected there. That said, I went to flickr and downloaded the original image and tried to remove the extreme CA in Photoshop CS6 and it made it a little better, but it was still bad.

I wonder if camera raw would do a better job of removing it from a raw file.
