New acquisition: the Olympus 45 mm 1.8 for Micro Four Thirds

This is a really small, fast, lightweight lens I bought for interviews with my Panasonic GH4. Here I was trying to do an interview with my dog Noshie which didn't work out too well... So I just told her to sit still and be pretty, for which she has great talent, as you can see.

I love the image that comes out of this lens and I plan to carry it around a lot more. Weighing in at about 100 grams, you won't even notice it's in your bag. For the 250 euro's, it's a bargain and a worthy supplement to my Panasonic 12-35 mm F2.8. and Canon 70-200 F4 in combination with the MetaBones Speedbooster.

I've been putting a lot of footage on stock sites recently: this and a lot of older footage can be seen on my account under the name ImagineVideo at Pond5.
