    E-PL3 and 15mm F8.0 bodycap lens at close focus setting, plus lots of luck.

    P1010824.

    Nice capture. As much as I like the idea of that lens on my E-p3, I just don't see the image quality that I want, in the hundreds of shots posted in various places. It doesn't keep me from being tempted by the size and convenience. Must resist!

    Thanks. I have my share of the more traditional "sharp" lenses in the m43 and x line-ups. but fell in love with the compactness of this lens, its simplicity (one aperture, two focus settings), and its FOV. That said, I have many photos that are very, very sharp with this lens (am admittedly not a pixel peeper or test chart reader, and realize others have different requirements). It is not at all a "LOMO' lens, and is great to shoot with.

    I completely agree with you on this. I find the IQ more than good enough, with the speed, simplicity, compactness and lightweight it makes a tough act to follow.
    Love the image!

    I'd brighten it a bit -- but it's really cool! Didn't know that lens could do anything like this.
