Excellent examples of that lens quality.

(And I learned something from the last one: I had no idea that the roof of a Porsche 911 would support the weight of a big yellow construction crane!!)

Shoturtle, which 3 stop ND filter did you go with for this lens. I plan on getting one for some video stuff. Thx!

Now I know why you needed the ND filter. The EPL1 over exposes big time with the 20mm. So much so that I ended up returning the 20mm as it reduced the camera's DR. Good lens but...I rather put the $300+ toward the 100-300mm.

i do not use the ND most of the time, as you can not shoot wide open in bright sunlight with any fast prime. It does not over expose when I shoot the 20 1.7 stop down for the lighting conditions. I only use the ND when I want the big aperture dof during bright sunlight.
