Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

I thought that as some of are beginning to get this lens it might be fun to provide somewhere we could show our early experiments with it.

I'll kick of with a couple of old trout flies I dug out as its been to wet and dreary for any proper macro work

shot using the tripod with the flies mounted in a grip inside my small light box with a black velvet back drop using ISO200 with f8 and lit by an FL600R bouncing down + the eyelight flap was used to direct a small spill of light forward

One shot manual focus the other SAF

Processed in LR4.2 with no additional sharpening (sharpening sliders to default position)

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

I know it's great as a macro lens, now how about some shots using it as a mid-range landscape lens?

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

I had a chance to fire off a few macros today despite very poor light and a bit of a breeze. These are all hand-held with SAF + M, single point focus with 10Xmag and the "rocking method" for final focus selection. Lit by the FL600R on the hot-shoe

More practise, better light and no wind will improve things further but I am delighted with this tool so far

Most impressive. I want one too.

I really, really can't afford another lens just yet (bought the Lumix 12-35mm F2.8 last month)

Still Christmas is not too far away. I might try dropping some hints.

Wow. Those trout fly pictures are just excellent. Good choice of lighting and background. What a lens eh?

Re: Olympus 6omm f2.8 Images

Here's a few I snapped around lunch time today, nothing outstanding but it confirms (for me) that the lens has great potential

Btw the last two are pseudo HDR from one RAW, one of the great things about the E-M5 is the bags of DR that you can play with

very nice images Huw but what's that bright blue stuff you have in the background? We don't get that down here in Dorset no more!
