    ....or out and about in Beverly Hills....

    E-M1 and mainly the 17/1.8 hit the streets of LA... no real story... just sharing. I am missing the RAW support for Aperture, so these are JPEG with minor tweaking

    Kevin, great photos as always. I just got my EM-1 today. Have you tried the Adobe DNG convertor on the raw files and importing them into Aperture that way? Apple is so slow with updates.

    And do you use Aperture for the B&W conversion?

    Thank you Jim.... hope you have as much fun with your E-M1 as I am having with mine.

    I did try the DNG route... but at the time it only worked with 4/3 or legacy lenses... and as I have a possibly irrational distrust of DNG, I decided to wait out the appropriate RAW update to the OS.

    The b/w conversions were done in Aperture and Aperture alone... I dont use any plug ins or external editors at all

    cheers

    Kevin -Wonderful set. Did you get evaluated? I hope you invited the cart woman to join you. It might have uplifted her spirits.
