Default ....ZD 14-54 v-I with the P3

....I latched on the 14-54 to shoot a new (to me) 'linear' park and found the results to be quite good.

I may never buy m43 lenses, for how and what I make images of, my FT lenses are proving very ok. I am however going to buy a FT 9-18 and an EX-25 for sure, just need some free time to seek out and do the buys.

The following are from the 14-54 v1 on the P3 except the final two which are by the 70-300, all done with manual exposure.

....these two from the 70-300

Which park was this? Man, it was WAY to pretty to have to be at work today.

Some nice-looking colors.

Great images, Bob. Your images remind me just how good the 14-54mm version 1 really is. A much underrated lens. And, a steal, on the used market, in comparison to the cost of the 12-60mm SWD.

Your pics remind me that I need to pull out the E-P2 and take a few flower shots.

Great shots as usual Bob. Speaking of the 14-54, there is a nice clean looking one on Ebay right now for 285.00.

Just used my mad money to buy the Oly FT 35mm macro and the FT to M43 adaptor. Hope to get shots like yours with that lens. I heard it was an excellent lens for the money. Got a factory refurb for 179.00 incl shipping and one year warranty from Cameta Camera.

Thumbs up

Excellent shots Bob, well done. I like them all, especially #5 and #7.

Hey James: You got a good deal on that lens, and by all reports it gives excellent results. It is on my list of future lens purchases.

Thanks for the comment Steve.

James, I am looking forward to some files as soon as you get the hardware, do share with us any of your PEN system images.
