    Real Name:
    I haven't taken a trip without a big rig since I bought my first dslr in 2004. Until last week, when I flew to Seattle to visit my grandkids. I left the d700 at home, and traveled with the Oly pl2, 20/1.7, 45/1.8, and an adapted Nikon 105/2.5ais. I felt like a high wire act without a net... but I didn't fall. :smile:

    The 20 was A-OK for group shots...

    the 45 rendered delightful portraits...

    and the 105 had enough reach for kiddie soccer.

    I've decided I can tolerate a few more lightweight lenses in my u4/3 travel kit. Next trip I'll add the 14/2.5 and an adapted Nikon 55/3.5.

    ...and on a plus side you ended up with some timeless memories. How cute is the 2nd one!

    Looks like you're at home with m43

    I agree with the 45mm for portraits, just superb.

    Great shots, thanks for posting.

    I bet #2 will break a few hearts before she settles down.
