7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

Wanted to try the ZD7-14 in anger on the E-M1 so I thought the British museum would be ideal as I was meeting a friend at Holborn last night.











Focus about the same as on the E5, not quick but you wouldn't need this lens to be.

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

They look good Andy. How was the handling as I have the same combo? Did you use the grip?

Really nice set of photos Andy and they look very clean for what must be high ISO?

Yes these were with the grip, I like a grip on a camera as I don't like the feel of reaching over the top when in portrait.
The combination feels fine to me, not a lot bigger than the E-M1 and 12-60.

Ps am I lucky as I've not had any lock-ups in the six odd weeks I've had the camera. My E-M5 has done it a couple of times in 18 months.

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

Great shots Andy especially the first two showing great use of symmetry. Were these hand held because the shutter speed is really low and its interesting that the people in the first do not appear blurred. Thanks for sharing.

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

great examples

I popped in a few weeks ago with the 12-50 and was reminded how much I had come to appreciate the 7-14 in such environments (when I had originally believed it was a 'landscape lens')

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

That first shot is a cracker.
The others are nice too though. I wish I had a 7-14.

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

Nice clean images all with interesting points of view and composition. I don't use my 7-14 very often and haven't used it on the EM1 except for testing but it feels easy enough to handle, especially with the grip in place.

David

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

A cracking set Andy, the 1st is very striking, catches a mood of what I think is a fine piece of architecture.

Re: 7-14 and E-M1 does the British Museum

Good use of the wide angle zoom at both ends of its range. I am now tempted to look at 7mm options myself - wonder what the new "pro" wide angle will be.

Yes these were handheld, I'm not a great tripod user especially as I was going for a beer and a curry afterwards
If you see the full size image there is some motion blur on the people, it's on my Flickr if you want to see.

Thanks all for your comments.

I'm wasn't either but I'm increasing finding myself grabbing one - the total carry weight is still a lot less than last year!

Reasons include the in camera HDR (I know it can be done hand held), the overlay and time lapse options and an increasing belief that I can pre do my post processing with this camera (and more easily using a tripod and LV!) for some types of shot. There a lot of irony in here given the small light system with a great IS!
