E-1 close ups

The E-1 is growing in popularity as of late, so I thought I'd post a few from the last couple of weeks. I was experimenting with a new flash diffuser made from a white plastic jug.

This is with the 12-60, but I think no flash at all? Just ambient light in deep shade


...with the ZD 50mm macro


...with the 40-150 and EX-25 @ 114mm


...also with 40-150 and EX-25, @ 86mm. This seed pod (again from a local non-native "stinking iris") has been, I think, nibbled by a deer. The berries are not edible, toxic even, though I guess if they pass through the gut of an animal, that would provide some sort of locomotion for the plant.



Thanks for looking... Love that camera!

Re: E-1 close ups

Thanks to both of you for your comments. I think the E-1 is loved for what it is not as much as for what it is.

Funny I think that sometimes myself.

Taking great pictures with a 10-year old camera gives the photographer a higher level of satisfaction...

Re: E-1 close ups

Lovely pics Stewart, especially like the web! I've been thoroughly enjoying the E-1 too and very pleased at how close its 'standard' 14-54mm can focus. This has left me to wonder, is the 50mm f2 worth the investment, any feedback welcomed. For now I'm thinking of extension tubes for the om zuiko 50mm or an adapter for an old canon fd 135mm!
