I just got the roll back from my Zuiko 85mm lens tests. They are posted up under the Zuiko 85mm f/2 section, so check it out. In addition there are a bunch of cute pictures of my son I took with the lens. I also took several pictures in Potapsco state park a few weeks ago. I’ve been dealing with an issue related to the light meter on my OM-1n where it reads a couple of stops low for exposure (resulting in about 2 stops over exposure). When I got the roll developed…lo and behold all of the pictures from the park were about 2 stops overexposed washing them out some…GRrrrrrr. I appear to have fixed the issue now though (fingers crossed). PS. I am LOVING this new lens, it is so sharp and small.

I managed to find that darned Heron when I actually had a long lens on me. I just wish I had a 600/4 instead of a 400/5.6, or heck even a 400/4 and a 1.4x tc. I did not have my 1.5x tc with me to try a couple of shots with that and my 400mm.

Funny story about this one. My wife and I peaked in on the little guy to see how he was doing a few nights ago and noticed he was snuggled up with his frog (a common occurance lately). We debated for a couple of minutes about taking a picture of him, because hey, he was sleeping and we didn’t want to wake him up. Well documentation was required for later in life. He slept through my poping a couple of flashes (in a pitch dark room…pre-focus, f/11 and a 28mm lens saved the day) and then my wife taking a picture with her P&S digital. Didn’t even stir.
