…. and it poses on my old Olympus E-System display:
Now if you followed my blog, you will know that I wanted to buy the Sony NEX-7 for quite some time. And so did some of my photo friends. But I went through a long time of consideration and finally, the E-M5 it was. So far, I am very happy with the decision. It definitely loses a bit in terms of sheer file quality in comparison to the Sony NEX-5N, yes – but let’s put it the other way ’round: It still does deliver beautiful image quality and plenty resolution for my needs. I am sure that 24×36 inch gallery prints will look great. Probably with some limitations if there is very fine foilage in the shots…. but time will tell, and anything short of a Nikon D800E won’t be much better than the E-M5 in that respect, anyway. The rest of the camera is simply gorgeous. I will go into more detail in the next time.
For now, here are just a few of my first shots. All were taken in RAW, all with the Panasonic 20/1.7, handheld…. most at open aperture and times at around 1/10 of a second. The images were developed with the nice and simple RAW Photo Processor before adding some finishing touches (such as saturation, contrast, distortion and shift correction) in good old Photoshop…. enjoy!
