A Weekend of Olympus Fun

Last weekend, shutter therapy took quite an unexpected turn. Initially, we created a street photography session for a friend (landscape photographer) who wanted to join in the fun, exploring street photography, since this is not something that he does often. An outing was then organized, with a small group of common friends, all non Olympus users. One of them asked if I could bring along the latest OM-D E-M5 Mark II for a test run, so I said yes after checking the availability of the camera for the weekend. When the others found out, they also asked for Olympus gear to use on the street that particular session! I ended up bringing along E-M10 Mark II (2 units), E-M5 Mark II (2 units), M.Zuiko 7-14mm F2.8 PRO, 12-40mm F2.8 PRO, 12mm F2, 17mm F1.8, 25mm F1.8, 45mm F1.8 and 75mm F1.8 (2 units) for everyone to try out in that particular outing. It has been a while since I brought out my large bag which I have last used for my DSLR system! 

It was a short outing to Chow Kit, KL, my favourite shooting ground. It was interesting observing non-Olympus users giving the system a go, discovering the wonders of using M.Zuiko lenses, and experiencing the super fast Olympus AF capabilities, coupled with Touch Shutter (shooting immediately after touching the LCD screen). Also, how small and light the system is, easier to use for street photography! I believe everyone enjoyed themselves, and having fun was the main agenda of the day!

All the following images were taken with Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and M.Zuiko 7-14mm F2.8 PRO and 45mm F1.8 lenses

A good example of how useful the tilt screen is, on the E-M10 Mark II, for compositions such as top down shot of a table.

It is not an every day thing I bring out so much gear!

I sure hope everyone had fun, and enjoyed shutter therapy! It is only Monday now but I am looking forward to my next shutter therapy in the coming weekends already.

  3. Looks like I will be in KL this weekend. Staying in Tune Hotel at the southern end of Chow Kit again. But last time I didn't find the kind of Chow Kit that enters your lens... however that was my first time in Malaysia and the first days of that trip. By the time I made it to Penang I got a little better.

    1. The Chow Kit I went to was in the we market area and the streets surrounding it. Do drop me an email and if all things go well I do not mind taking you along to my usual spots there.

  5. This is amazing, as usual.

    How was the balance with the 7-14mm f/2.8? It looks heavy.

    I just sent my E-M1 for repair and bought a Panasonic GX8 and 12-35mm f/2.8. Hopefully, the E-M1 will be repaired quickly but I'm glad to have time to learn how best to use the GX8.
