Ok thanks. I hadn't thought of that but I see what you mean. There was a broad platform about two feet tall just behind where I was standing, so it should be easy.

Amaizing how did I know that!! spooky. Anyway it will be interesting to see if it works out any better.
Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but work has kept me brutally busy over the last few months (RRSP season up here in the frozen white north).
Free cookie to whomever can figure out what lens I shot this with!

Also, still waiting on the cherry blossoms...

Jekostas, I guess OM 50 f1.8..
Did you consider cropping out the fuzzy white bar on the bottom?
Last night was home made pizza night, snapshot before attacking it

I actually did mess around with cropping the rabbit picture a little, but to be honest I didn't really like where the eyes ended up in relation to the rest of the pic, so I just posted as is.

And last night it was BBQ Pork Tenderloin kabobs for supper
Out of tomatoes and red peppers though, will just have to do this again

OK first guess, OM 50mm f/1.4 (cause that's what everyone has). Second guess, OM35mm or some other ~35mm. Otherwise, no cookie for me. Too many MF lenses from every mount, it could be anything...
...though it seems to have a perspective between 60mm and 120mm, 35mm equivalent. So 30mm-60mm in real life.

Okay, that was probably unfair, but I just wanted the cookies all to myself.
Konica Hexanon AR 52MM F1.8. Not actually the greatest of lenses, but it has a nice bokeh and decent colour/contrast if you keep it under f8 or so (any higher and there's a monstrous colour shift).
Surprisingly sharp wide-open, though.
If anyone is interested, old Konica Hexanon AR Bayonet-mount lenses fit on the 4/3s mount with no adapter and only a minimum of modification required.
The 40mm F1.8 is a pretty decent pancake-style lens for an E410 or E420, and with the latest firmware updates, it's possible to have IS on older manual lenses for the E5xx and E-3 cameras.
