And one more gear post for 2011

I’ll post just a few more shots of my new (old) PEN EP-2… First off, the camera body itself without any lens – but with a leather wrist strap made by Gordy. I’d failed to mention it in the earlier post and want to point it out here. Its just a great little american made product. When is the last time you said that? Here’s a link to their website.

Next up I want to show the PEN attached to my Canon 85mm f1.8 lens. On the PEN EP-2 its a fast 170mm. Its size is not too large for the little camera body, kind of at its limit – but manageable. I think I’m going to actually use this combination!

Here’s a sample shot I grabbed on a short walk this morning…

Next up are two shots of lenses mounted onto the PEN EP-2 that I doubt I’ll use. Ergonomically they just don’t work for me, especially when I can use other lenses that do a better job (ergonomically) at focal lengths in the same range. [I’m thinking of my the Voigtlander manual focus lenses, the 40mm and the 20mm. As pancake lenses they work well with the iris adapter – see earlier post…] These are great lenses but just make more sense on a DSLR body. Nonetheless I’ll post the photos to satisfy those who are curious what the combinations look like.

These look pretty ridiculous, right?

But I’ll post them in case anyone
