Portraits with the Olympus Pen-F and Nocticron:
It’s been a very busy month for me, so I haven’t had as much time as I would like to post more consistently. But my schedule is clearing up, and I did finish up with the Olympus Pen-F, so I’ll be posting my review up soon. One lens I found myself using a lot with this camera was the Panasonic Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 ASPH. The Nocticron has been out for a while but when I borrowed the Pen-F to review, I knew I had to give the Nocticron a try. It’s expensive, and it’s a pretty big lens if you consider it is designed to be mounted on a micro four thirds camera but the performance is exemplary. I’ll be writing up a review for it as well. But while I’m working on those reviews, I thought I’d post a few images with the Pen-F and the Nocticron.
These images were taken while I was walking with my friend around Lower Manhattan. It was a nice day, and we ended up under the FDR. Sometimes when it is crowded, I go to this area because it’s usually a little more quiet. Plus, it’s nice when the weather gets warmer because you have the shade of the FDR and the breeze from the water. All the images here were taken at F1.2 and only natural light was used. For those who want to see how this lens performs throughout the aperture range, I’ll be posting a whole range of images in my review. I just really like how this lens produces portraits at F1.2, and in my opinion, it’s such a great match with the Olympus Pen-F.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the images. I have plenty more in my Panasonic 42.5mm Nocticron review as well as a few in my upcoming Pen-F review, which I am going to get back to right now, so stop by soon. Thanks for stopping by!
