Hi all, I thought....lets share my amazement about this little gem. Last Monday I went to a small air-show near my home town in the rural N-E of The Netherlands. I just had bought the E-PL5 with the MK2 14-42 kit-lens. No other lenses yet..... Not the lens to take at a air-show (I know), but I thought.....Static shots will be my main business there. I could get reasonably close so no problems as expected.:smile: After the flying started I thought..."What the heck" , lets see how the AF performs, just for the fun of it, not expecting any keepers with that mundane kit-lens, right? Ahummm......Was I in for a surprise when I loaded them into my PC at home. Here are the details: E-PL5 with the 14-42 MKII Kit-lens Weather conditions: overcast with sun (if present) behind me All hand held with IS1 activated, AV mode + 1.0 EV (auto ISO) Most used aperture: anything between F6.1-8.0 AF-S with the 1 or 9 center focusing points (a bit playing around) selected. Focusing was done on the lcd screen. (no VF-3 yet) ORF files converted to DNG and then loaded into LR 3.0 and processed. Enough talk, here are the results. #01: View attachment 278643 #02: View attachment 278644 #03: View attachment 278645 And now the flying ones #04: View attachment 278646 #05: View attachment 278647 #06: View attachment 278648 #07: View attachment 278649 #08: View attachment 278650 #09: View attachment 278651 The numbers 4-9 are obviously heavenly cropped but that's not my point. I am so amazed about the AF and the resolving power of that little kit-lens. But maybe you think otherwise. Can't wait to get my hands on the panasonic lumix 100-300 though...... Please share your thoughts, opinions.
