I was taking more photos this morning with the lens I got yesterday. Camera mostly on auto ISO, and on “P” mode to see all apertures (but of course, indoors the camera opened it up fully most of the times). Here are some:
Zuleikha, August 2013. All photos taken with the Olympus E-PL1 camera and the PanaLeica 25mm/1.4 lens, mostly wide open.
The lens looks, feels, and handles very good, and even fully open it’s plenty sharp I would say. Everything you point it at looks good, so I think it’s worth every Penny. It was the right decision to get one.
Next week, Zuleikha will be gone to a school camp with her class (and another one I think). First time for her to be without parents, so she’s pretty excited already. And my favourite model (except Mitchie of course) will be gone for the whole week, so I have to find other motives and subjects during that time.
Update from the evening, ca. half past eight:
Here’s another one taken with our LED overhead room light and at ISO 400. Yes, the camera shows a bit noise, and this was enhanced because I brightened up the photo during post. But I’m beginning to understand what they mean when they write about a “3D pop” when describing photos taken with this lens. Yeah, right. This thing rocks. And this is a real shallow depth of field – just the front needles of this one are in sharp focus:

Thanks for reading.
