    Well-built and versatile, I am loving this lens so far. Here's one of the first shots I've taken with it. It might not do justice to this lens, since it is front-focused a little bit, but I just love the rendering of the lens:
    PB170154-17_01.
    @100mm f/2.8 1/160s ISO-320

    I know you guys have nicer shots than this one, please keep them coming! :wink:

    Here's another one taken over the weekend. Too bad the weather has still been overcast... but I love the rendering of this lens so much that I went out and bought the 12-35 as well! :biggrin:

    Sure, she's lit with a Lumiquest ll softbox on a Nikon SB-800 that's positioned above her head, slightly in front of her. You can see by the nose shadow that the light was slightly offset of center to camera right. The light is very close to her. The strobe was fired using Pocket Wizards ll.

    The camera is in manual mode with shutter speed at 1/250 @f/2.8 - ISO 200, this kills the ambient and gives me the dark background.

    Processing the RAW file was done in Lightroom 4.2 using a custom split-tone black and white adjustment.

    Hope this helps explain the shot.

    Lovely images Jordan.

    What are your thoughts on the 35-100 relative to the O75....zoom v prime I know so in a sense apples v oranges...but just trying to gauge your thoughts on the two.


    (Nevermind....remembered your blog)

    It's been on my short list for a while now but it means selling 2 existing lenses in the kit.

    This lens works well as a portrait lens for a fast moving toddler. Lately he is never in one place for more than a second so framing a shot with one of my primes is challenging.

    I love the composition of this shot, but I think it would've worked better with a smaller aperture...

    Yep, a little more DOF would have been nice.

    I just got the lens today and am already loving it. I'll have to wait 'til the weekend to use it more but took it to a school function and Christmas Concert tonight and the lens allowed me to film the entire event without issues.

    The lens on the OM-D has a high quality image feel ...



    ... similar to the full frame Sony RX-1 (this is not a valid comparison by any means - but still ...)
