    you should be able to figure it out...
    I do too, but I usually use the 18mm and generally shoot with zone focus. These have narrow enough DOF I'm guessing you're shooting pretty close to wide open and using auto-focus???

    Hi Ray,

    Yeah, pretty much shooting wide open with AF.
    I'll have to try the 18mm, which will force me to get closer to the subjects.

    I've yet to try zone focussing -- I'll have to start practising this in MF. I've been to used to AF on M43 systems !

    With Well Wishes,

    Rob

    The 18mm does make zone focus easier, but don't underestimate the natural look of the "normal" lens. Henri C-B, a pioneer in street shooting, is said to have used the normal lens almost exclusively.
