I had to drag myself out today so I went round the park to try out the 45-150mm panny lens. I didn't stay long.

Not sure about the lens, I think I still prefer DSLRs, but I can nearly read the plaque on the bench when I enlarge the image. It's in memory of someone called Googe (I think) dated 1918 - 1937. Not bad for full zoom nor in the noise department at ISO 800.

Good b&w candid shot. The ability of the lens appears to be nice.

A well observed candid and the choice of mono presentation works well.

The bench space on the left is for his imaginary valentine.....maybe she'll turn up, if he keeps wishin' and hopin'.

Fabulous composition! Excellent candid capture, Chris SmileSmile

This looks really good to me, Chris. If you're not sure about the lens it may not be the G5 but the kit lens. Saying that, sensor size-wise, a DSLR would generally trump M4/3rds, I reckon. But I still think the lens and processing engine play a big part. The engine here may not be key since the G5 is supposed to be good, ya? So maybe it's a matter of the lens? If you're used to getting better pics with your SLR, I mean.

Sorry...just waffling Grin

looks good to me. I often see a guy like that round here, he has got greenish tinted glasses.. funny I immediately thought so has your chap. or pink ones . there you go, mono gets the fantasy going Smile
I never tried a 4:3 I think my D3x is small and the d800 is not half as grippy. Wouldn't want any viewfinder smaller than that. But then you are probably more into stealth than I am.
