Default ....new Pen-F gets rave reviews for MONO, but.......

I've not decided yet to buy the 'F' so getting along with what I've got for now.

I've decided to make more B&W files this year using 'very-select' of my normal takes.

I use COREL After Shot PRO-2 for post processing with a decent B&W addon to simulate various films.

OR just a deSaturation to ZERO depending on the original file...

These I made with the desaturation method.

E-M1 w/40-150 f/2.8 PRO .. no MC-14 for these












......another from 2012 .. E-3 & ZD 70-300

I really like #3.

I can't wait to get the F in to play with.

The leaves shot Bob, $3, that's a great subject for black & white treatment.

The Pen F sure has the nice classic look to it but it won't be in my bag. For what I do, the OMD M5 suits me just fine. I do wish it had wifi though.

I don't know about newer cameras, but the wifi/phone software for the EM10 is pretty clunky, and I don't really use it as much as I thought I would. Also, I normally shoot RAW only and only JPGs shots will transfer to my phone, so I have to know beforehand that I am going to do that.
