    I took more shots with the EM5 and the 35-100, but I found myself using the EP5 with the 7.5 more than I thought I would - what a fun little combo!

    These are all from the Scarborough Renaissance Festival this last Saturday.

    Great photos. However, I still can't believe people still make Starfire swords, much less buy them (the ones on the right of #6). Handle and act like crowbars.

    It sure adds to the environment mood. Especially 2 + 3.

    Very nicely done. You really captured the spirit of the festival. I would not have thought to use a fisheye at such an event but it works.

    I appreciate everyone's comments - I typically use a longer focal length - like the 35-100 - and it was the most used lens that day, but I really enjoyed using the fish, you get a whole new perspective and you get close to the subject. Most everyone at these events are having a good time and are in a good mood and are fun to talk with. I had several people ask me about the E-PL5, some thought it was a film camera. I talked to one guy who was using the Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 for video work. You meet all kinds of people.

    Wow, the 7.5 took what normally would have been so-so make made them quite interesting. Good used of that lens.
