Loving the @GetOlympus M. Zuiko 45mm f1.8 lens…

Why did none of my friends warn me that cameras were an addiction? I find myself buying and shopping for accessories and lenses based on 3 criteria:

  1. Can I afford it? (I do have a mortgage to pay and three kids to feed.)
  2. Will it help me take better pictures?
  3. How will it look on my camera? (I must be honest.)

Here are some of my cameras outfits accessories:

The initial kit lens served me well. The below photo and gallery (click photo to see gallery) were taken day one with the camera which happened to be as a chaperon on a school trip to DC for my daughter:

M. Zuiko 40-150mm.

The zoom was put to use for the first time while a chaperon on another school trip. This time to the Durham Life and Science museum for my son. Sample picture and gallery below (click image to see gallery):

Next are my most recent acquisitions, the Olympus VF-4 (to aid in bright light situations and manual focus) and M. Zuiko 45mm f1.8 (a good fantastic portrait lens).

Still there? Thanks for sticking with my most recent E-PL5 ramblings. Great compact size, great image quality, and a broad lens selection that starts at more than reasonable prices. I am so happy with the Olympus M4/3 system that I have become the office, friend and family Olympus sales rep.

Thanks,
