And Then There Was Sarawak Laksa

Few days ago I posted a photo of Sarawak Kolo Mee. Do you really think that would be complete without the Sarawak Laksa?

Taken with Olympus OM-D E-M5 and that new awesome M.Zuiko 25mm F1.8 lens of course. That 25mm lens is just perfect for food photography. You can have a decently wide coverage, yet at the same time you can choose to do close up shooting if required.

    1. I will refrain from giving the location of this shop, because there are better ones out there in Kuching. My favourite place is Chong Choon Cafe at Padungan.

  3. Man oh man your food pictures are complete and utter torture. It not only looks beautiful but it makes one super-hungry as well. I already gain weight just looking at all those carbs. But it sure is gorgeous, and the new lens is absolutely a great performer. Bon appetit!

  4. Hey, Robin, always fun looking at the food !!

    BTW, could you tell us which firmware version for the OMD-EM5 works with the 25 f1.8 to correct for color aberration, lens distortion, etc.

    This lens is looking to be the one to get just want to be sure that my EM5 will take full advantage.

    Thanks, David in Seattle

    1. I would recommend using the latest firmware update from E-M5, you gain smaller focusing points! that is a huge plus especially when focusing accuracy is an important thing for me.
      I did not have the chance to try the 25mm on older firmwares, but it worked well with the new one.
