DOF fun / by Joel Bramley

My new lens finally arrived, the Olympus 45mm f/1.8. This is the first lens I've ever had (removable) where the aperture goes beyond 3.5 so you can image how excited I was when I put the lens on the OMD and wound the dial for aperture backwards and it kept on going until it hit 1.8. As I said I've never had a prime lens before so it will take bit for me to get use to using it and the extra f stops. Often during my first walk with the lens the shutter speed would blink indicating that the shot would be over exposed, I had to drop the aperture down to f/5.6ish before it would stop flashing or drop down to 1/3200 sec.


Here are some of the test shots and so far I am really impressed!
