EPL1 and Panny 1.7 - Sick of fall shots yet?
Just got my Panny 20 1.7 in the mail tonite after work. Just had time to head down to the local preserve before it got dark. Was really windy today, so was relegated to shooting inside the timber.

Very sharp, the filters effects are pretty interesting.

Who would ever get sick of Fall shots? It's not even Fall here yet!

Very effective use of effects in these. Post more!

Thank you ST and Greg.

the 20 1.7 on the EPL1 makes for a really nice little kit. i really like the sharpness and contrast, even wide-open. it vignettes at 1.7, but for most things you will shoot at 1.7 it matters not. i really like the 40mm equiv focal length, it gives a natural perspective yet still a bit wider than the old standard 50mm. i think this lens will find its way on my camera more often than not.

Yep, a Rollei 35 with a faster lens, autofocus and more accurate framing.

I like rollei camera's I actually have a point and shoot by them. But 40mm is very good for perspective work.

Awesome, Dustin! How did you PP that 1st shot in the woods (4th shot)? What camera settings did you use? I love it!!!

Yeah, I saw that but you're quicker than me! The 20mm is a sharp lens. I returned mine because the EPL1 over exposed way too much with it in bright conditions.

hey Tullio

thanks, for the 4th shot. i used the orton effect. which was to basically make a sharp copy and a gaussian blur copy and combine them. and then i adjusted the saturation until i found it pleasing.

i have yet to test it in bright conditions. but so far mine is metering just fine. more shots will come as i have some non-rainy days to play with it.
