2606 – Cold Moments

As I said in the last post, I am still thinking about selling my 12-40/2.8 lens, but let’s forget that for a while, let’s look at what it can do while I still have it.

A few days ago I’ve taken some extreme images shot directly into the rising sun. Did the lens flare? Well, it did, and depending on the exact position of the sun in the frame, it did more or less so. In today’s image it did not, and I’d say this lens does not flare worse than any of my primes. I’d say that’s quite an achievement for a zoom.

By the way, this image may be sunny, but it was windy and cold while I took it. It’s time for mittens again. Oh, and: the OM-D E-M1 is perfectly usable with mittens on. No problem at all and much better than the E-M5.

The Song of the Day is “Cold Moments” from Paul Weller’s 2008 album “22 Dreams”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Looking at the Nikon DF, one of my first questions was whether I could turn all those little (stacked?!) dials in winter wearing my electric gloves. 🙂

    1. I have no idea what I’d have done when the DF had come out while I still had plenty of Nikon glass. It’s certainly a beautiful camera, although I am not sure whether the physical dials make sense or not. Some reviews hint at function following form.

      Anyway, I was spared that decision and the E-M1 is outstanding when it comes to usability.
