I just have a chance to go to San Francisco for business in April, then took a little trip to Yosemite.
I wanted to travel light this time, so took only Olympus EM-1 and the only lens 12-40 f/2.8, few filters and a small tripod.
The weather was not so nice a lot of time, even light rain, but EM-1 handled them really fine. Some scenic stops,
my camera was the smallest camera out there. Most of them were full frame, even medium format!!

In the term of walking around and hiking, it's like heaven .... soooo like, I was happy to sell my Full Frame for m4/3 system.

P.S. Sorry for my poor English.

Very well done!

As to the weather, trust me - a little fog and rain is a lot more interesting both for photographs and hiking than the flat blue skies and slight haze from the campfires that you'll see later in the year (like right now).

Absolutely beautiful photographs! Well done. I've been wanting to visit that place for a while now...

My travel kit is an E-M1, 12-40 and Samyang 7.5 fisheye. Fits easily in a carry on bag with a week's worth clothing.

Extraordinary! That sure is a beautiful spot. I haven't been since I was very young, and I don't remember a whole lot, other than being scolded for leaving too far over the railing at some vista point. So not quite at the photography stage yet then.

Wonderful photos.

My EM1 that I purchased 3 weeks ago is a miracle in weight and size compared to carrying around my Canon 5D Mk.II with an L lens attached.

Lovely Set!

did you use a polariser? I was thinking of getting one for the 12-40mm lens but have heard some feedback that a B+W pol dont fit the lens well.
(Sorry for the noob question).
