Quote:Of course, you could stick to the EM-5 and kit 12-50 and test out the water tolerance.


I tested the water resistance of the 60mm macro + EM5 today. We had an "Olds" coach trip to a garden in Kent, it piddled down.

I managed a few landscape shots + one or two other interesting "plays". If they are any good I will post a few here

The system passed with flying colours with nary a whimper Smile


Quote:Brian, have you got any comparison shots using the kit lens on macro setting, and the 60mm macro? (If you have time, it would be interesting)


Roger, I will see what I can do, probably going to be my trout flies again as the subject for consistency of target and lighting

As long as it hummed, albeit more quietly than it used to. Wink

It does hum more quietly except when you press the shutter half-way down - then the humming picks upSmile

I've had a quick look through some of today's efforts and here are some of my favourites (for various reasons)

The view from Guilford Cathedral this morning

Colours of Autumn, ISO 400, f8 with 1/15th sec (it was that grim!)

Really like all of these Brian - I know winter is on it's way, but the fall colours here are beautiful.

The exposure on the traffic scene is great. Love the rain on the window and how it looks like bokeh - you were in the car right Wink

I really like how fog can create such depth in images. Wish we got more fog here. It happens occasionally in the fall.
