    Hi, welcome to mu-43.

    I was one of those tourists many years ago, have to say it's a very unusual sculpture park. Certainly plenty to photograph there, both with and without the tourists in your shots. If you live in/near Oslo I would definitely recommend going back to photograph the curious tourists as they explore the park's sculptures.

    I certainly have nothing against tourists. I've been there several times during the day when it is packed with them. I decided though that I wanted to see what the place looked like empty. Here is a shot I took the day before with a few tourists there using the m.zuiko 40-150.

    When walking round Vigeland park I felt for the first time limited by the dynamic range of the E-PL1. I've never really felt it was a problem before, but now I really had to work to get the cloud out of the burnt out sky when I went through the pictures on my computer. I hope dynamic range is next on Olympus priority list.

    A VF-2 is also definitely on my "to-buy" list. I found it a bit difficult to hold the m.zuiko 40-150 steady at the long end. I suspect that a viewfinder might simplify this task.
