I’m sure we all do it from time to time; just browsing the Internet to see what’s new, what’s on offer, and if there’s any acquisitions to made, on the cheap that is. Well, I was guilty of this a few weeks back and I came across something I was hoping I was not going to see. An Olympus Pen-F with the 17 f1.8. And it was at a price I just couldn’t say no to.
So this is my newest purchase as I’m a bit of an Olympus fanboy. I like their cameras and the images they produce. Some swear by the SOOC jpg but I’ve always been a raw shooter and that’s what I’m going to stick to partly due to the fact that I’m not capable of getting good OOC exposure and I know the look I’m looking for, something I can produce from a raw file but find it extremely difficult in adjusting jpg files.
When you look at the specs between the Pen-F and the E-M5 II, there is actually no contest at all. There is no reason to buy the Pen-F because the E-M5 II offers the same, or even more, for less money. It’s just about looks, it’s the only reason to buy this small (albeit pleasing) camera. It’s fun to use and what’s fun to use tends to get used more.
So here it is, the Pen-F with the 17 f1.8 lens:
Expect some more images from this camera in the future, I’m sure it’s going to be used a lot.
