My New Mate

Well yesterday being a perfect Spring day, I hooked up with a new mate (buddy) who I introduced to the camera club.
We ambled along by the river taking the odd photo, just chatting and getting to know one another. We get along great.




M1.2 + 14-150mm

A couple of nice portraits there Mark. And he'll have someone to help carry his camera when it gets too heavy to manage!

Sent from my cracked folding Samsung.

Re: My New Mate

Hey! That's one of my backup cameras with its original kit lens, although I prefer the 24-70mm f/2.8 II, which "lives" on my 6D. Not that the 24-105mm f/4 IS is all that bad. But the 24-70 is "WOW!". About as good as the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO. ;-)

In fitting the lightweight 14-150, F4, my intention was to showcase the compact power of the OMD system -
I emailed him his portraits above to which in reply he made no comment (perhaps out of modesty) - but he did
acknowledge the "nice shot" of a duck! He did not send me any of those he took of ducks as they drifted by.

Larry sold me this lens at an outrageous price after I bought an M5.2 body! I must admit it was in mint condition, original box and all!

He is certainly one of the coolest dudes I've met in a very long time, if ever.

Thanks Larry, that is very interesting info. It's useful to know what the other guy's kit is about. I handed him the M1.2.
He seemed not to like the enhanced EVF colour. He handed me the 6D and I saw the difference; the 6D viewfinder
sees colour just as it is, whereas the M1.2 EVF's colour is close to what the OOC jpg. looks like.
Personally I like the warm Olympus colour, but probably just a matter of what one is used to.
Colour to some extent is an arbitrary perceived differently by one individual to another.

Yeah right! Mark said that I wasn't charging him enough for the lens and so he sent me some extra cash. I think that must be the only case in history where the purchaser drove a very hard bargain and negotiated the price UPWARDS

Thanks Mark!

It was the Irish in me that drove the hard bargain, Larry
