First Pen-F tests

Finally been able to get out with my new Pen-F and give it a workout. My first impression on viewing the results in Lightroom, is that I'm having to do less highlight/shadow rescuing than with the EM-1, and the clipping is pretty minimal too, so the exposure seems really accurate out of camera. I tried just getting the feel of it, and some in-camera toys.

A couple of general shots, RAW out of camera:

HDR in-camera, JPEG, ISO 1000

HDR in-camera JPEG ISO 200

And in the in-camera monochrome options - there are 3 of these, I started on #2, which I now see adds quite a bit of 'grain' to the B&W jpeg ..... sometimes this works

...and sometimes it doesn't, at least for my taste

So I think mono mode will be subject-dependent. I personally prefer mono mode #1

Looking at these in the preview for this post, they all look a lot better in the original, so don't judge them absolutely at this size/resolution, this is just an indicator. Liking the Pen-F so far ... once I get past the 'operator error' stage, I'm sure I'll like it even more!
