Olympus Simplifies Photography

I have been pushing my Olympus 14-150mm F4-5.6 II lens to its limits and liking it more and more.  These are all crops which were then upsized to make the sizes shown.  Click on one of the images to switch to slideshow mode and then down below the bottom right of each picture you can select a larger size to view the details better.  Note that these images started as out-of-camera jpegs which were then tweaked in LR CC and upsized in ON1.

I was considering obtaining a 60mm macro lens but I don’t think I will since I find that I can make good enough images like these without it.  I would like to get to the point where I could just use one camera and one lens for most of my photography, and I’m now closer than ever with the Olympus PEN-F and this lens.  I am at the point where I can do it for my personal photography and I’m working to see how much of my Homewood event photography might be photographed with this camera.  So far, I found that a faster lens was often needed indoors and I used either the Panasonic 12-35mm F2.8 lens or one of my F1.8 prime lenses in those cases.

A lack of things to photograph and a need to make images that I haven’t before, pulled me away from using my prime lenses as much; but, I still prefer walking with and using one prime lens.  It took the Olympus 14-150mm zoom lens to go back to getting some enjoyment out of a zoom lens.
