Happy with the OM-D Low light

Hi,

I'm happy with the low-light high ISO combination of the OM-D E-M5 and especially the 45mm f1.8. Low light was one of the main reasons for wanting to upgrade.

My aim was to take shots like these and retain the atmosphere and colours the eye sees. I need to experiment more, but I'm happy to be able to get these shots without flash or too much blur from moving people or objects; which otherwise ruins them.

Re: Happy with the OM-D

Absolutely stunning set of images throughout, the quality is outstanding, i can understand why you are so pleased by your purchase.

Please keep the images flowing, it is fascinating to follow a subject one knows extremely little about.

Thankyou so much

David

Re: Happy with the OM-D

Lovely shots David...I also like the idea of low light minus flash..so should I think about selling my E600 and various lenses and take the plunge for the OMD ??

Of course yes!

However, a little bird told me in Shanghai that the E-P5 is imminent and might be worth the wait, and the E-M6 is rumoured for maybe later this year. Both will improve in some aspects.

For me, though, I had been saving for the E-M5 and it ticked *all* my boxes, so there was no need to wait. Now I'm concentrating on better optics, which should stay whatever body comes out later - even 32-but/built-in HDR/3D/ whatever is coming will still need good glass.

David.

Re: Happy with the OM-D

I'm impressed every time someone shows a picture taken with one. A chap at work said his brother has just bought one. Left his Canon complete with expensive lens on the back of his pickup before being distracted and driving home from the desert. By the time he realised, there was no doubt it was long gone by then. I approved of his new purchase with green eyes

Nice images David..the present Oly/Sony sensor and the 45mm is a joy in low light...

...and Peter, keep the E600 and get an EPM-2...use the same batteries!
