Was out today getting a few last shots with the Leica X1 (sending it back tomorrow) and shot this with the Olympus E-P2 and Kit Zoom. I have shot this house with a Leica M8 and M9 and am surprised to see that the Oly did just as well. Even the full size looks GREAT. This was shot at F5.6 at the 17mm setting. ISO 100 and handheld from my parked car window. I did do some PP to enhance the image. Basically I adjusted contrast and brightness in ACR 5.6 and then used the Ektachrome film filter in Color Efex Pro. Thats about it. Then I resized to a large 1500 pixels wide for this post. Click the image to see the large size.
This little Olympus E-P2 has been surprising me more and more and now just have to explain to the wife why I have been using her camera every single day! I can not wait to try out the 20 1.7. Should be here on Wed! I see B&H is now out of stock so hopefully a few of you got one!
Also, I just noticed that the Olympus E-P2 is once again IN STOCK at B&H Photo. If you have been looking for the camera, get it while you can! Also, check this out! As of today you can get the Oly E-P2 With 17 2.8 At Amazon! Its in stock with only TWO left!
Anyway, here is the image!
I have been giving my M9 a break for the past week but I have four new lenses on the way to test out for my M. The 35 Summarit, 50 Summicron, 75 Summicron and 90 Elmarit! The 90 Elmarit is no longer in production but many say it is the best 90 for the M9 so I had to try it out. Look for those reviews soon as well as the X1 (soon guys!) and Nikon and Canon DSLR’s.
Thanks for looking!
