    I'm in Singapore at the moment and on my way to a very worthy museum I managed to convince myself that I'd be far more capable of taking photos of the exhibits - and thus potentially have a more edifying experience -- if I had the Olympus 45mm f/1.8. Buying the lens wouldn't take long so I'd still have all afternoon to spend in the museum. Curiously, however, once the new lens was on my GF1 the most edifying course of action suddenly seemed to be to sack off the museum and take photos of random stuff by the marina.

    My M.O. with the 45mm thus far is to confidently plant my feet, raise the camera with eyes a-gleaming, lower my shoulders disconsolately, and trudge back a few yards to try again. My GF1 has effectively been a fixed lens camera until today, and I think the new lens might require some considerable practice! There, I knew I'd be spending the afternoon in the most educational way...:smile:



    Testing the 45mm at f/11. Don't think it shows the lens off at its best!
