The 4th set was allot more fog. I like the NR at low and off for day light shooting.

with all the test of the m4/3 lenses, it seems both the panny and oly lens are sharpest at 5.6-7.1. And even the 35mm macro is best at the more open ranges from 3.5-11. Very interesting.

You are welcome sarah, I love that they keep improve the m4/3 that it will really establish a solid hold in the camera market. It is a very good format.

Okay, after the 1.1 firmware update, the AF with the kit lens has speed up dramatically. And we notice a slight increase in speed with the oly 4/3 35mm 3.5 marco and panny 45-200 zoom lenses also.

Okay,

Just won a 20mm 1.7 off of ebay, will be testing it out is Paris next weekend. I am so stoked. Looking forward to seeing how the little camera compares to the t1i with the 28 1.8 at 1600iso wide open.

Thanks Tullio.

I am very excited to see how it does at 1.7 at low night against the T1i and the 28mm at 1.8. It will be fun. But I will go pick up at least 1 ND filter for with at least 2 stop for daylight shooting. Just incase I decide to shoot in bright daylight, and f12 is still to wide.

Good plan! I have some ND filters I use with a couple of fast vintage lenses (f1.4 and f1.7) and I can tell you that a 2 stop ND filter is not enough. For a f1.7 lens you need at least 4 stops if you want to shoot real wide open.
