    Some great work there Russ. Loved your Portland Fall photos, as well!

    Actually not my family, it was a paid portrait shoot. First assignment without the DSLR. A little strange getting use to. Miss a VF, but it still worked out. I picked up the VF2 recently and I think it will help the usability immensely.

    Beautiful, there's something extraordinary when a big eyed baby stares straight at you, almost like a window into their soul.

    E-PL2 with 20mm f1.7

    Panasonic 20mm works quite well for portraits although you do have to get a bit close. First two are at f1.7, third one at f2.

    Here are a couple portraits I took with the 20mm lens on my PL-1

    Reno-111111_144359-Auburn.

    The last one my daughter took of my neighbor. Dumb luck? likely, but she did do it on purpose.

    Yeah, I like the 20 overall, but it has some issues. For me I feel that:

    -focuses a bit slow (using an EP3)
    -have to be in close to take advantage of shallow DOF
    -a little prone to flare when shooting backlit (and no stock hood)

    Picked up the 45mm 1.8 recently and will be playing with that as a portrait lens.
