    A colleague of mine was kind enough to lend me his PL25 last weekend, so I went out for a walk with just that lens on my E-PL3 to take some pictures. Despite it being a little bigger than my own Panny 20mm I thought the lens handled very well on my Oly, just the right size to act as a good support in my left hand. I did notice the rattlesnake but no big deal to me at all. All in all a very nice lens indeed.... Below a few pictures I took that day at one of my favorite local places, some old Philips factories that are no longer used (production has moved east like with so many factories of course) and are currently being transformed into apartments. Given the "raw" nature of the subject I went for B&W conversions.

    Thanks for looking, hope you like one or two.

    I went for a walk tonight with my EPM1 and PL25. I bet your flip screen, though, comes in real handy!

    Nice shots, and thanks for posting.

    Nmber 2 and the last one are my favorites.

    All excellent, geometric shots... but #3 really is especially wonderful!

    Yes, I love the flip screen.... I initially bought the E-PL3 rather than the E-PM1 because of the fact that it had a few more direct controls, did not think much of he flip screen, but I have grown to love it and use it probably 80% of the time... it just seems more natural to me to hold the little camera pressed against me looking down rather than holding it at arms length... and it definitely helps with longer lenses to keep the combination more steady...

    Sent from my phone, pardon my brevity.
