I Haz New Camera Lens!

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett


This could very well be the latest birthday present ever, but it was so worth the wait. Last night I picked up a 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 lens for my Oly OM-D E-M5. The standard 14-42mm lens is okay, but gotta have more zoom. They claim it's the equivalent of an 80-300mm focal length lens on a standard DSLR. That makes it a great companion for the stock lens. And yes, we got a very sweet deal on the lens. It was less than half of retail.

Enough of the tech talk. Pictures or it didn't happen!

This is one of the first shots I fired off. Midnight was sitting in Paul's lap, and I was able to get a decent profile without bothering her. This may be where the lens gets the most work - cat pictures!

Midnight asleep this afternoon. Still in the same position.

Some catnip that has survived the recent hard freeze.

The moon shot through the trees.This may be one of my best moon pictures ever, and that's not saying a lot. ;-)

I look forward to taking more pictures, particularly after the cataract surgery when I'll be able to see better.
