I went back to Marienplatz station, in Munich, last week. I had the Olympus Pen with me and was curious to see how it would perform compared to a DSLR.
This is the result...
This was taken last year with a Nikon D80, DSLR
Love the colours and comp too. Well captured.
Eye-catching. Lots of different crops that will work too - - -
.....and it perfomed wonderfully.
Super Image, excellent timing.
Very well captured, an excellent image. Carol
Really wonderful work.
Great shot, with loads of impact !......cracking composition & colours, & the timing to include the walking figure is perfection....1st class !
Wonderful colours again Marc - love the effect scrolling up and down !!
2 pics shortlisted in 1 week. these (the invisible cleaner and this one) are both fantastic photos, in which you really used the setting to full effect. And very much impressed of the smooth, crisp quality of both shots. Really need to get myself one of these new little cams, but I think I may go for the sony nex5 because of the (more or less) tilt screen

I appreciate the UA and comment! This is a great camera, I sold my D80 on e-bay and bought this. The only limitation I find is the reaction time from pressing the shutter to the camera taking the photo (and no manual focus) this was actually my first outing with the camera. I normally use it for snaps of the kids.

allthough I assume it's a bit slowish compared to most dslr's, is it faster than most compacts you think?
again, the quality is really great. did you clean up the shot in pp, or did it basically come out of the cam so crisp? your "Olympia"-photo seems to suffer much more from noise. higher iso, or did you take that one with a different camera?
photo quality of the nex5 seems impressive enough to go for it... but I'm a bit in doubt about the lenses they offer. seems a bit like the weak point for the nex-5

I think it is a bit slower

I only adjusted the colours

Same camera same iso, "Olympia" was at zoomed max across the station at 42mm and then cropped most of the photo away. This is @14mm no crop
Quote: I think it is a bit slower
wow... that really surprises me. I always thought/understood these bridge cameras were slower than most dslr, but quicker than most compacts
bit of a set back if you're into street photography

I often struggle to catch the kids when they are on the move with this, mine is the older model perhaps the newer models are faster
I'm sorry, but I can't see this stuck on 29 votes...
Very impressive image. Like it alot....
Wonderful image! Wish I'd taken it!
