Earlier this year I bought my current camera an Olympus OM-D E-M5 and have since steadily accumulated a selection of prime lenses and I am absolutely delighted with the results. Years ago I started out in photography with an Olympus OM-1 35mm film camera and then OM-2 and OM-4Ti cameras and a range of Zuiko prime lenses and the OM-D has proven to be a fantastic and very versatile camera.
There’s always been something about the Olympus OM system that I’ve loved, low weight, small size, great build quality etc. so when I could afford one the OM-D E-M5 was simply irresistible, I knew that I’d love it before I even got to hold it in my hands. I decided to post six photos, all of which were shot and processed as HDR and taken with this camera and my range of lenses.
“York House Gardens Statues Autumnal Abstract”, OM-D E-M5 and Samyang 7.5mm 1:3.5 fisheye lens.
“Passer By”, OM-D E-M5 and M.Zuiko 12mm 1:2.0 lens.
“Colourful Shopfront”, OM-D E-M5 and Panasonic Lumix G. 14mm 1:2.5 lens.
“Muted Guitars”, OM-D E-M5 and M.Zuiko 25mm 1:1.8 lens.
“For The Love Of Boats”, OM-D E-M5 and M.Zuiko 45mm 1:1.8 lens.
“Support”, OM-D E-M5 and Sigma 60mm 1:2.8 lens.
The Micro Four Thirds system really suits my style of photography I can carry the camera and HLD-6 grip and these lenses plus accessories at a fraction of the weight of a full-frame DSLR and equivalent lenses, put simply, I’m lovin’ it! 🙂
Thanks for reading.
PS. The “Passer By” shot is a bit of a rarity for me in that it has a person in the shot. Not deliberate but a happy accident and I decided that the man walking in to the composition should become the title of the shot almost like he was walking through my photograph.
