Thursday: two photos taken with the “kit zoom”

Wow. A week off isn’t much – these days are going much too fast. It’s Thursday already, and today we even didn’t leave the house, tho it was warmer outside than in.

I played around with the “kit zoom” of my Olympus E-PL5 camera, taking about the equivalent of a roll of film (about 35 shots or so). Some I can’t show, but here are two from today:

Long way down

Both taken with ISO 800 and the lens as wide open as the focal length allowed. These lenses have the best price-/performance-ratio you can get, and for a photographer who’s just beginning, they’re possibly the best way to get into it all. Very convenient, and more than good enough, especially for a walk-around lens during daytime. I don’t use mine that often, since I prefer my fixed focal length lenses with 14, 25, and 45mm, but this one almost covers the range of these three. Just get one of these if you plan to buy a camera. It might be everything you really need.

Thanks for reading.
