yesterday I found these scenes. If we don't have the usual blustery rainy/windy fall weather there are a few places around Arlington that can be pretty nice. Oh! we will have that crappy weather, I just need to get the photos before it happens.

For these I mounted the 14-54 {I} to the E-P3 and tried out my new CF tripod which I am learning to like quite a lot

Presently this is about as colorful as we have...............








......I would like this one in a jigsaw puzzle

There is hope, I shot these last fall -- E-P3 & FT 70-300





.....for comparision to the P3 + FT lenses this was 3-minutes before the above but with the E-3 + 14-54 {I}. I'm still liking my FT lenses on the P3.

That's one nice park, Bob. The original 14-54 is one nice lens, too. You certainly cannot dispute the results.

I really like number 1 and 3 of the shots from last fall. the first one has a nice sun beam coming in from the upper right corner and the second is just an excellent reflection shot.

Of the test shots for this fall I think the last with the path is my favorite - it is hard to find a good mix where you have a coherent and complete autumn scene, that one with the path has a level of coherence with fore, middle and back ground linked together.

Thanks all for your comments, I very much appreciate your taking time to do so. I am pretty much locked in to using my FT lenses in the P3 and decided to try again the 14-54. It does decent at AF for these kinds if shots, totally acceptable to me, and I like the results. Now that I have a tripod it is only a matter of time until I mount the 50-200 and snap on the P3.

I bet you will like the P3 / 50-200 combo ... if the subject doesn't move too fast. It is the 4/3 lens I use the most on the OM-D ... cannot beat the glass quality !

I have used the lens a few times with the P3 but I got to totally liking the 70-300 so much that I just left the 50-200 setting on the E-3 which I haven't used now for a while.

Here, the past spring and summer, we got a lot of rain to fill the lakes and the creeks have run most all this year. That and the relatively mild summer have the lake birds scattered and I did not make a lot of images about parks wildlife this year. Even the butterfly migration was a bit strange too, especially the monarchs which were actually scarce.......... hopefully that all was due to the fact that we did not have water shortage issues.

Anyway, for what I've generally used the 50-200 the past several years changed this year and I need to get it out and reacquaint with it. With the tripod now the EC-20 on the 50-200 sounds fun too.
