    Hi all,

    Simply love the Pen for traveling since I sold all my Oly dslr gear more than 3 years back. From the EP1 till now, the functionality, AF speed, IQ @ hi iso had increased by leaps and bounds, but still the fun remains. Don't see that flame diminishing any time. So here goes some of the shots that I would like to share. Hope you will like some too!

    Will share a series of New Zealand shots first.

    Here's one that really epitomizes the concept of m43 & mirrorless, anytime anywhere. Was on a turboprop plane, and had my EPL1+Oly 9-18. Somewhere in New Zealand.


    Christchurch, before the church tower was ruined by the devastating quake. With 9-18mm

    Akaroa crater lake, Christchurch. With 12-50mm.

    Akaroa lake, zoomed out, and pano stitched. With 12-50mm.

    From the skies, somewhere near Lake Taupo. With 12-50mm, EM5



    A resting dog, you can feel the calm of this place and the friendliness of the locals here, Lyttelton, yet, the damages here during the devastating Feb 2011 quake cannot be forgotten. Voigtlander 25/0.95 wide open + EM5

    Great photos; I love the first photo from the plane, as well as the Christchurch downtown shot and the photo of the dog. Well done; you are making me reconsider selling off my E-PL1. I switched completely to the Pens (originally had the E-P1 and PL1) from my Oly E-500 3 years ago, and have not really regretted it as well.

    Hi Penfan2010, thanks for encouragement. The last 3 shots were more recent and taken with EM5 but yes, the EPL1 had given me wonderful memories and somehow many of the shots that etched in my memories are from this camera. I still have it, less in use though. I haven't regret as well switching from 43rd, so is my back:smile:

    Great great work. I love your Liberty pic. You are really squeezing every penny out of that 9-18 mm! Carry on!

    Many nice shots. A great "out the plane window" to start and a fascinating Lady Liberty shot near the end.

    There's something very 3-D about the Trump picture.

    Thanks Hyubie! Thanks for nice words, had sold 9-18 for 7-14, though I miss this lens for the ability for filters.

    Thank you very much yekimrd, drd1135, Ulfric M Douglas! Glad it works, more to come soon.

    Great photos! The shots with the E-PL1 are a good reminder that you don't always need the newest camera - it's the photographer that matters (and quality lenses don't hurt, either!). :biggrin:
