I luckily have a local pond that I can visit. I can’t imagine what I would do if I was holed up deep in a city. I’m close enough, but still have some form of nature around here. No worries of people or anything despite the lockdown in effect. (Yeah Covid-19 still going on in the world) Anyways, I thought I would share some hand held high res shots I took on a quick walk.
These are all with the 40-150R. The consumer lens on a E-M1.3. All of these were processed with my High Res presets. You can click on that lens link to see my review of it as well. I love that I can grab even a lower end lens and get very great results. I don’t HAVE to lug the big lenses for a quick walk. I don’t need to bring the best, but I can still achieve very excellent outcomes. That is quite liberating.
Meanwhile, I finally got my own copy of the 17mm Pro. I might have mentioned that in another post. I got that last month with the mkIII. I just have to say… I love this lens. If you haven’t caught my review of it, you can see it here. I find I love it for video, and I just love it as a normal lens. Something to use for general shooting. I liked it before, but the more I use it, wow, the more it really grows on me as a spectacular lens. And it’s so good up close. More to come on this lens in the coming months.
