One-day trip to Bishop, CA with OMD EM-1 : pt 3

I never really looked into MFT(micro four thirds) cameras before and didn't really take them seriously. I already own 3 full-frame cameras and if I'm ever going to get into a new kind of camera system, it was probably gonna be medium format, something like Hasselblad H5D with much bigger sensor, not smaller.

I don't know about you, but I ALWAYS run into "Damn, I wish I had my camera with me right now" kind of situation almost every day. They say 'The best camera is the one you have with you', and I just could't agree more. Sure, I could just use my iPhone, but the quality isn't just satisfying. 

Due to smaller sensor size, MFT cameras produce a lot less bokeh than the full-frames. Some people might find it as a disadvantage, but I think it creates a great opportunity to challenge yourself to capture the moment solely by your composition skill without depending on your fast prime lenses to do your work for you.

I know it might be hard to tell from this image, but the sharpness is superb!

This one was shot with Voiglander 25mm(50mm equivalent). Since it was shot wide open at incredible f0.95, image is little soft but produces amazing creamy bokeh!

I always hesitated and worried to own a manual-only lens, but I don't have to worry no more - focus peaking feature in EM-1 makes manual focusing so much fun.
