    I went out with the family to the Nisei Festival Grand Parade here in LA's Little Tokyo. As usual, I didn't pass up the opportunity to take pictures! :D

    Everything was shot with my 2x E-M5 II bodies, GF2 + 8mm 1.8 FE, 17mm 2.8 and 75mm 1.8 lenses:

    Great shots. Like the cool looking kimono on the woman in the 4th photo. Looks like Hokusai's Great Wave. :)

    Interestingly enough I was getting quite a few shakas everywhere I pointed my camera! :D

    The 75f1.8 and 8f1.8, are really superb lenses for sure.

    The second shot is great.

    Thanks! I would say the 8mm 1.8 Fisheye and the 75mm 1.8 lenses are the sole reasons I keep shooting with M43. Even on older cameras like my GF2, the 8mm still shines!

    Nothing similar exist in other formats and I shoot with DSLRs and Sony FE mirrorless.

    These are all excellent and shows that in the right hands the GF2 can produce equal or better shots than a new m4/3 camera. As a GF3+GM1 shooter I can't even tell which one is the EM5 shots and which one is the GF2.

    I actually have an easier time editing the GF2 raws in this type of lighting. I'm guessing it's perhaps the native 100 ISO?

    Hi, what do you use for the color processing / adjustments?
    Thanks!

    Odd, that Olympus doesn't have native ISO100, but Panasonic still does. I know my GM1 has it. Unfortunately, my Fuji starts at ISO200(I think new ones that just came out start at ISO160).

    I'm editing in Adobe Camera Raw using some custom presets I made myself. I've been shooting with different cameras, so I've been trying to make presets that I can apply to all my shots in order to maintain image consistency.
