      Thanks Fernando, indeed, yes it is. I always say its the most underrated lens in m43rd’s. I have tons of images that I’ll eventually publish with it as its my primary lens in this system. I also just recently added the Oly 14-42mm IIR and that should be a lot fun.

      • Thank you Jorge.
        I see a lot of optical magic on this lens from what I see and your images are a beautiful example of it.
        I also love the B&W treatment you achieved searching for that “dynamic b&w” setting results. That tones (from the dyn. b&w setting on the GF1) are what made me strat with micro 4/3, although I got an E-P2 and the 20mm 1.7, which I love for b&w but not for color.
        I think the 17/2.8 produces a lovely color also.

        I hope I can get close to that tones somehow sometime, any tip very wellcome

        best wishes,

          Excellent Fernando, stay tuned here because I plan on sharing how I process my images with the various applications I use which are Lightroom 3, Silver Efex Pro II, and I just added Photoshop Elements 10. Also watch for an upcoming where I’ll share a Lightroom preset for RAW files which simulates the Dynamic B&W setting for the jpegs on the GF1/LX3 which you can use on your RAW Olympus files.

          • that makes me extremely happy!

            Looking forward for that Lightroom preset and the whole lesson
            Thank you Jorge

            P.S.: Gracias por tu actitud generosa, sin duda ilumina este mundo convulso.

  1. your sense of been in the right place at the right time is amazing. What a lovely job with your processing.

      Thanks Rey, total coincidence, I suppose if one walks around enough things start to appear. 🙂

      Thank you James. To give you a brief explanation on how this shot came about. I was walking by and I had actually passed the alley but her aloof position, like if she had lost her keys in the alley was the kicker, walked back a few steps and click.
