    Default E-M1 and 150mm F2

    Daniel re-kindled my interest in this combination, so I took some of my most enthusiastic model.
    I was quite pleased overall. It did not hunt once, which is the opposite of the 50-200 on the E-M1, which it insists on a short hunt almost every shot.
    I like the background separation, though there is green fringing on some, particularly the last shot. Not unusual for a big prime in a contrasty situation.
    They were RAW, put through CaptureOne 7 on the one click Auto setting with nothing else done.
    Cheers,
    Don

    All very nice. The first is my favorite and I like the lit-up eyes in the last one.

    Thanks Lorey. A bit lucky with the eyes. Sparkle for the next run.

    Yes Daniel.
    It has helped the 150 more than the 50-200 I think.

    Don,
    How could you ever think of giving up that lens?
    Great set...

    Hahahahaha!
    Yeah, I know what you mean David. I should hide it deep in my cupboard for a while, then sneak it onto EBay without a farewell shoot.
    But I KNOW I would regret it for ever after. Besides, I doubt it would sell here now for more than a pittance.
    Cheers,
    Don

    Indeed ,
    My SHGs have long been paid for, and I don't need to raise additional cash, so I will happily hold on to them and utilize them with my obsolete E-3 and 5 and
    the E-M1.
    Cheers,
    David

    Thanks for commenting. I discovered the setting by mistake. The peak of a steep hillside with bright green sports fields some distance far below. Reviewing the first shot, the totally washed background was a welcome surprise.
