Default A few more 60mm f2.8 Images

Works great as either a short general-use tele or for closeups, and it does not mess around getting into focus, even going from one extreme of the focus range to another.

....it seems to me, from the images you've shown, that the 60 is every bit as sharp as the 45.

The DOF shown by the 1st two above, both at f/5.6, is remarkable with the DOF being mattered by the focus distance and shutter speed, I really like that.

The last image at f/2.8 and the slow shutter is outstanding, I would very much like the 60mm.

You had a good day...... mine was all day at the Junk Hippy Roadshow @ Arlington Convention Center helping my daughter. It was far too windy for my kind of outing anyway. We lost a lot of leaves too.

Thanks, Bob.

I considered going by the new deck park over the freeway downtown but you're right, the wind was really blowing yesterday. I may run down there today before the weather starts turning.

I believe this lens is as sharp as any Micro Four-Thirds lens and is as close to a "perfect" optical design in a Micro Four-Thirds model....not needing digital distortion correction....as Olympus has made to date other than maybe the 75mm f1.8.

great images Greg, the roses are very nice and rich in color and detail. The last two shots are also crisp and clear.

I see the railroad crossing in the one pic. Do the tracks go right through town in the middle of the street?

that is one of the commuter light rail lines people use to commute to and from the south part of Dallas. It stops right by Fair Park, so is a popular way for people to get to the Fair grounds for events. With heavily-attended attractions like the State Fair, the area is "parking-challenged" to say the least.
