Default Trying with the "new" Olympus 14-150 MK II

As mentioned before (at least I think I did), I got the "new" 14-150 for travel photography. Well, it is also good for walking around

Broken Angel:


Snakes and ladders:


Leftover:


All of the above post-processed with Photoshop Elements 9 (I know..) and the TopazLabs filters...

Comments?

Thumbs up

A nice eclectic collection of images. While the last one is my favorite, all have an artistic flair and appeal. You chose a perfect name for the second shot; and I like the composition on the first shot. Obviously that lens is serving you very well.

I really like that lens ... way less lens changes

It will be nice if that lens was a tidy bit faster (like f2.8 to f4) ... but I bet the price and size will not be the same ...

Well-composed, exposed, and sharp photographs!

Are those shots using the E-M1 or E-M5? I didn't see any EXIF data, which I always like to review since it is instructive about settings and equipment. I am trying to decide between this new lens and the Panasonic 14-140 f/3.5, since I have one Olympus and one Panasonic body.

Those are taken with the EM-1 (my EM-5 should produce the same results). Remember that the new Olympus 14-150 is weathersealed (that was a huge decision factor for me).

Thanks for the information. The weather sealing is nice, but the OIS in the Panasonic is good for the Panasonic lens. However, I seem to be able to use the Olympus 40-150 f/4 lens okay with the Panasonic GX7, which has IBIS (though more limited than the current Olympus cameras), so I am leaning towards the Olympus -- especially after seeing your photographs.

The image quality seems very good and will be a great walk around.
