Re: Street and the 17

Fascinating images, Ian, the monochrome sets them up perfectly.

Re: Street and the 17

Thanks David,

I do prefer to shoot street in B&W as to my mind it focuses more on the main subject rather than using colours to attract.

Nice set of sharp Street images, I also like to go out with a single prime often, in my case the Voigtlander 25mm set for hyper focal which with Focus Peaking works really well.

Re: Street and the 17

I agree Peter, you can't (to my mind) beat a nice prime for street work as often it is easier to physically move closer to the subject matter and in doing so discover a better angle than it is to stand off and use a zoom.

The Voigtlander is a nice lens but for that 25mm focal length, I will stick with my PanaLeica 25 that is my prime street lens on the EM1, it may not be quite as fast as the Voigtlander but is very quick to AF and delivers stunning results.

We have some amazing glass for the Mu43 system now and much of it can outperform glass for pro level full frame (certainly the glass I had with my kit).

Re: Street and the 17

Yes great combination and one of my favourite lenses. That and the 45mm make a great pair, I would also sing the praises of the Sigma 30mm and 60mm.

Love the Monochrome series too!

Re: Street and the 17

I have tried the 45 for street but do prefer the 17mm on the EPL5 and the 25mm of the EM1 as it balances better and I find it the perfect focal length for street.

There are many superb lenses available for the Mu43 system now and many are useable for street depending on individual shooter preferences for standing off / getting in close.
