View Full Version : Last minute gift

Anne and I have hired a 50mm lens from the e-group lens hire for the holiday season. http://e-group.uk.net/hire/hire_info.php/

The first shots I have taken using this lens are incredible - extemely sharp and seems to focus promptly with the E-5.

One I feel to put on your last minute list IMHO. :) *smileysanta

I get a lot of use from my one. OK it's not the fastest focus but the results are brilliant. I used it with the 20mm extender on the E-PL1 and was amazed at the IQ

I use it a lot for portrait work as well, as it's the same as 100mm on the OM, which we were brought up with as being an "ideal" lens...

I agree Barr1e, it is a wonderful little prime that is ideal for the E-5's higher resolving capabilities.
I wouldn't be without mine in the camera bag and it's the second one I've owned having returned from the dark side earlier this year :)

No time for make up and arrangement of stray hairs.

This one of Anne is almost straight OOC.

I've been really impressed with mine. Although I use it mainly for work (fossil images), I did take it out to a friend's wedding recently and got a few great shots.
