Default Visit to the Greenhouse

Wandered into the town's greenhouse for a bit of warmth and colour. E-PL1, kit lens. The kit lens maybe not as sharp as the glass used on some of Zigs photos but not too bad to my eyes.

Hi, I'm flattered that you would reference some of my photos that have been posted. I will share with you that I think the kit lens supplied with the E-PL1 does a very good job. As is evidenced by your beautiful images.

When I first got the E-PL1, I was convinced that I was going to go out and buy a whole new series of lenses specifically for the micro system. It turns out that the only other lens that I've purchased for it is the micro 9-18mmlens.

At times, I use the 12-60mm SWD lens designed for the fourthirds system (w/ an adapter). But, for the most part, I have the 9-18mm, 14-42mm micro in my kit.
They serve me well.

Zig

Thank you Sarah, I find the greenhouse a wonderful place to visit and shoot in -- the glass is currently whitewashed so the light is wonderful and diffused. One just has to be lucky enough to get there when it is empty.

Zig, yes the kit lens does do a admirable job. I am fighting with it on occasion as I try to capture images of a stream -- the banks are lined with bushes that are very twiggy at this time of year and I just can't seem to get a "sharp" image. Though it may have something to do with my leaning out over the creek and holding the camera even further out...

Thank you Lisa. That was about the nicest day we have had this spring, indoors in the greenhouse, so was able to really let the blooms shine...

Wes, understand you are getting the PL2 with newer kit zoom lens, which should be faster on the auto focus, curious if it is sharper too.
