This winter has been so far very mild and hardly any snow at all. So when it does come down, we get a “little” excited around here. I took my new Olympus E-M5 MarkII out in the wind and falling snow with the Zuikio 14-150mm f4 lens, the combination makes this perfect, as it’s weather sealed and freezer proof. But it’s a slow lens…and once you’re used to faster f2.8 lenses then having a slower lens is hard to work with at times. But, I’m saving up for better glass and renting when I need them for this camera. In the meantime, it’s not like I don’t have excellent camera equipment already, I do have pro Canon full frame DSLRs and fast L glass. It’s just nice not to have all that weight every once in awhile.
The day was pretty overcast and grey, and I wanted to test the focusing with the snow. So I went across the street from my house, and down to the creek. It was bitter cold out!
It was 25 degrees and very windy outside! But that never keeps kids and adults from sledding down the hill! I ran into some friends of ours and took some shots of them.
Bros in the Snow!
The next day, the sun was out, but it was colder, the temp was 20 degrees but felt like 15 or less! Still, it was gorgeous, and the conditions were perfect!
Overall, the camera did really well, I was surprised! Some shots were missed, and a little soft, possibly my fault and getting used to the system. But I’m really pleased so far.
