Dead Flowers

GXR, f13, 1/2500, ISO 200, JPG, 50mm


  1. Another brilliant shot, Cristi.

    Thanks for the answer to my questions on the previous post.

  2. Well done again! I am very interested to see that you keep coming back to the GXR with 50mm EFL. In use it is quite a change from the 28mm EFL you used so much on the GRDs. You have inspired me to use my Oly E410 + 25mm pancake in the street. It is only a few mm bigger than the GXR has a reasonable OVF and focuses reallly fast.

    All the best


  3. Thanks for your comment Calvin!

    Thanks for your comment Peter!
    I do like the handling and lens quality of the GXR although to be honest I am not too keen on that 50mm EFL and find it quite limiting. I would much rather have a 40mm if I can't have a 28mm, with 50mm I can never seem to get close enough to people or for macros nor far enough away from buildings or for landscapes.
    I think 50mm can work for street shots once you get used to be a bit further away from people. The E410 will give you a much better AF than the GXR so this should not be an issue there.
    Have fun with this and maybe share some of your pictures.
