Hi folks,

My two Lumix 12-32mm lenses mounted on my PEN-F and E-M5 mk II. I still haven’t managed to fully test the new one but I’ve done some testing and it seems just as sharp as my older one. I went out earlier to get a few test shots to a local common type area which was very heavily waterlogged after all the rain we’ve had of late, slipped with the camera in my hand and got myself and my gear thoroughly covered in very slimy mud but shot nothing of interest. ๐Ÿ™‚ On my return I wiped it down first to get the worst of the mud off, removed the lens, fitted a weather-sealed one and thoroughly washed the camera (the E-M5 II) down, dried it, and after gently cleaning the lens, refitted it, as good as new, you got to love Olympus’ weather sealing when you need it!. ๐Ÿ™‚ I always buy lens hoods for all my lenses, I think that they’re an essential accessory, these ones, by JJC, have the benefit of having a 58mm filter thread on the front and thus accepting an easier to attach filter like my variable ND filter and lens cap which, as they’re screw-on lens hoods is a very useful feature as you don’t have to remove them to fit a filter, a neat design feature I think.

I did a couple of test shots indoors of some ornaments, I love art deco ๐Ÿ™‚ , and our music room AKA dinning room, “Eat to the beat” ๐Ÿ™‚ , she loves Elvis, I tease her that there’s always been three in our relationship. ๐Ÿ™‚

And, as they used to say in Blue Peter TV program when I was a kid, “here’s one I made earlier” in pre-lockdown Bognor Regis, shot at f/5.6 ISO 200 as a five-frame handheld HDR, which I think that you’ve seen before which does nicely illustrate how sharp these lenses are.
