    Wanted to try the 45-175X lens again for street work ( I usually use the Panaleica 25mm f1.4) and have to say it was a delight to use and the results are very acceptable.

    Thanks Bluebear, I am happy with this combo for street despite having only used the 25mm for street before.

    Are you just that close to people or were you making use of zoom here? Seriously, your last few posts, the framing is awesome!

    Hi kristen,

    I have been using the Pany 45-175X lens a lot more for my street work as I was unsure of it's capability at the longer end - after this weekend I am a lot happier with it and find the internal zooming an advantage as there is no change in physical lens size.

    It certainly does perform well and as much as I love my Pany 25mm f1.4, I may just be tempted to use it more for street.

    I do still enjoy getting in close especially where I can interact and converse with the subjects rather than snipe from afar.

    I think that is what impresses me the most about your images-- they are intimate, you are right there, they don't feel like you're sneaking your shots, they feel like you are a part of it. Another bravo to you!

    I love them all...that last one made me hungry....could you order me a bacon roll and chips please? (if I were younger and healthier I would move to London!) it is a delight for photographers of all stripes!!

    We visit London probably twice a year (it is about 90min away) but it is well worth it and areas like Camden Town & Islington are a real street photographers dream, it is a melting pot of nationalities, ages, dress styles and attitudes.

    The images at the start of this post are all from my local town that is small (20K) but still has a mix of good street subjects.

    Some from Islington in Sep:
