Great shots. Good colors and detail, love the first flower, then the night shots are impressive!

Thank Saly! These are obviously for camera testing mainly on jpeg warmth, blue sky, green foliage and low night, which usually lose to PEN. The night shots were quite challenging at 1/14s. My secret is: close my eyes right before I press down the shutter smoothly and don't release it till the shutter sound is over. This way I never need a tripod even at lower speed.

do the math, 1/14 is fast enough to avoid shutter speed with a 14mm lens.

I know that 1/FL rule, that's why I said 1/14s while they were shot at 1/13s and 1/15s. The rule no longer apply when speed is low enough regardless FL, it applies more to longer FL.

That is not very hard to do shooting at 1/14, 1/13, and 1/15. As it is much easier at shot FL, 14mm is pretty dawn short.

When you get down to 1/8, 1/6, 1/4 they it get difficult.

The correct math here is 1/28s, not 1/14s.

the physical length is still short with or without the crop factor. And the crop factor does not affect the actual length of the lens. It is still a 14mm lens.

That rule applies to the 35mm-equivalent focal length, not the physical focal length.
