    Trying out my new OMD and the 7-14mm and I'm very pleased with the combination too. These are from my first outing with the combination, an evening stroll in London in which I managed to get some shots of the lighting up of the Shard on it's completion, very war of the worlds in appearance when light up.

    Not the Shard but one I took earlier as they say :smile:


    0.4 second handheld - love the IBIS on this thing!

    Really nice captures, Tony!

    The 7-14 has been getting a lot of use and shared images around here lately... I'm glad to see that - it's such a wonderful lens.

    Nice images Tony....the first 2 I really like.

    The Shard is quite an impressive structure, looks massive against the city of London skyline.

    Thanks Don, it's fast becoming my favourite lens as I learn to see more in "7mm" :smile:

    Thanks Joe, it's currently the tallest building in Western Europe (59th in the world). It is an interesting piece of architecture and impressive when you see it for real.

    I wasn't able to make it to the light show but have looked at many images of it that were posted online. This one is the best I have seen.

    Thanks very much! I'll take that as I was late to the party and couldn't get the shots I really wanted because all the best spots were taken.
