    Yet another reason to choose the XZ-1, being faster than any of my 4/3 or m4/3 lenses at the tele-end, andhaving excellent AF allowed me to catch this fleeting bank of Fog rolling over the Dallas Skyline from my Bedroom window.
    XZ-1 1/2 Sec at F2.5, ISO 200, very heavy crop.

    Nice capture Lili - love the lights peaking through the fog.Out of curiosity, since you shot at ISO200 can I ask what you put the noise down to in the sky portion?

    Thanks stills, As to the noise; it is 50% crop, also under exposed by about a stop.Shot in RAW I turn off Noise reduction in OV2. I ought to have shot at ISO 400 or shot in manual mode to get a longer exposure at ISO 200. But the Fog faded out in under 5 minutes :(
