Default Zuiko 14-54 MK II -0- yeah!

Well it arrived and I had a chance to do a bit of shooting around the house and yard to try it out on the E-PL2. So far really impressed with this lens.

This dragonfly was warming itself in the sun and allowed me to get very close

Likewise I was able to get really close to this bug and then I cropped the shot a little further. I called it "Frustration" because it's trying to eat the composite decking, thinking it is wood.

It's a tight squeeze but I can get the 70-300, lumix 14, zuiko 45 and the e-pl2 with the 14-54 mounted and the vf-2 on all inside my crumpler 4 million dollar home bag.

Wow, a tip of the hat to you for some spectacular captures. I predict that lens is definitely going to become one of your favorites.

Yep, the 14-54 can quickly become a favorite. Great 1st set, keep working it.

Nice shots Ramce, yes it is a heck of a lens. Mine is on my camera all the time but then again I only have two lenses with the other being the 35mm macro. Just paid property taxes for $3200.00 so my lens money is in there somewhere.

Steve, Bob, Greg and James, Thanks for checking them out. I am super happy with the lens and think the 14-54mm MK II plus the 70-300mm is going to work out really well for me.

As much as I love prime lenses it is very liberating to be able to turn the zoom and get closer or further. I have a feeling the 9-18mm will be next on my list.
