    It was a very nice day today, so I took my bike and went for a nice ride around my hometown to shoot some pictures... All pics taken with E-PL2 and E-PL3, lenses used Samyang 7.5, Oly 9-18, Oly 14-42 and Oly 40-150. Hope you enjoy one or two, thanks for looking!

    Great shots Pim! Love the wideangle stuff, makes me want to get a CSC. I've never thought of Eindhoven as pretty or interesting to look at untill this series of photos, so well done!

    Some interesting buildings and angles - they are suited by the B&W.

    Thanks Bartjeej, yes the current Mu43 line up features some very nice wideangle options. I mainly use the Oly 9-18 for that, as opposed to the rather excellent Panny 7-14. My main reason for ditching my D300 system was to go for the weight and size advantage, and the Oly lens is tiny of course, and gives very decent output. I tried the Nex system two months ago but lack of native lenses (and especially in the wideangle area) means that I prefer my Oly set up for now. The Samyang 7.5 that I bought this week gives me even more options and when used carefully it can serve as an ultrawide as well, keep the horizon pretty central and the typical fisheye perspective is much reduced. My Oly 9-18 remains my favorite lens by far though, ideal walk around lens as it give you the wide angle combined with a very nice "standard" FoV at the 18 mm end.

    Ps, Eindhoven unfortunately does not offer much in the way of grand building etc, but I find that every city offers something if you turn away from the standard stuff and look for the details..:)
