Default Playing with the 14-35mm f/2.0

I got tired of waiting for a sunny weekend here in the DC area - apparently that's not gonna happen in my lifetime. So I spent the morning at the US Botanical Garden (one of my favorite places to shoot flowers) to play with the 14-35mm f/2.0. Here are a few of the pix.

ISO200, f/2, 1/320

None of these were done with the EX-25, which on the 14-35mm f/2.0 appears to focus inside the front element (grin).

BTW, the US Botanical Garden is a great place if you happen to get to the US Capitol. It is only a block from the Capitol but is an oasis amid the federal buildings:

Default Oly Flash Hot Shoe Cover

On another subject, is there a Flash Hot Shoe Cover Convention going on? All my hot shoe covers have moved away from home and they're not sending back any post cards. Have any of you seen them?

(grin)

Default ....those are some pretty nice pictures

hi Ted,
.............the cactus pictures are top notch, the others too but I just like the cacti shots best.

A while back I got a text msg from my E-3 flcover, it seems that all missing flash covers are now known to be found rolled into one of these, black photo masking tape.



So all 5 of mine are suspected to be there including the E-3 cover, that sent me the txt, cause it too is now missing, no more text msgs or post cards, just disappeared like the others.

Hi, Bob

OK so we need to put out an APB for them (grin).

Glad you liked the pix. It's funny - my favorite is the first one, which I was tempted to name "In Your Face" but I'm not sure a flower can say that.

I was playing around to fgure out what the DOF limitations are on these fast lenses (which is an issue with the 4/3 system), and I realized another issue with fast 4/3 lenses - unless you are independently wealthy you're not gonna purchase a lot of custom filters. I have a boatload of filters smaller than 67mm but none of them work with the fast lenses I have now.

Default Oh My!!!

Those top grade lenses are really something! The contrast... The detail....

I must watch that I don't become addicted. Your not helping.

Congratulations on your purchase. Do your best to wear it out.
