If you have the Olympus 40-150 you may have had the unfortunate luck of having your lens hood explode. The design of the lens is genius but unfortunately, it is very fragile. Until Olympus fixes the lens hood I am sticking with the lower cost solution. Links in the post below!
I was fortunate to shoot with the all-new Lensbaby Velvet 85 F1.8 that was released a few weeks ago. As many of you know I love the Lensbaby lineup especially the velvet line. I have to tell you the all new 85 is no slouch. The build quality is amazing, the lens is sharp when you need it and dreamy when you want it. A number of looks that you can get from this lens make it one of the most versatile pieces in my bag. Below are some shots that I took this week during a photo walk and around the area.
One of the great things about having a standard like Micro Four Thirds is more than 1 company making lenses for the standard. I wanted to share 5 lenses that are under $500 that would be a great fit for your Micro Four Thirds system.
I wanted to write a post that helped people figure out what lenses to buy when they get their new Olympus Camera. Note I am a wedding and portrait photographer and not a landscape photographer. I purchased quite a few lenses when I made the switch and after a few months, these are my favorites.
