Lens Review – Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 lens

The Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8Before I jump in and start wildly commenting on the Olympus 12-40mm’s good and bad bits, I’d like to give a bit of context to why I’m examining this lens as a potential purchase…

I wanted lenses like the awesome 14-35mm f2, the super versatile 50-200mm f2.8-f3.5 but i couldn’t afford them.

Photos on the way to IKEA

I’ve started taking my camera just about everywhere with me. The other day I took my super compact camera kit (Olympus OMD EM5 with the teeny tiny Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens) on a little trip to IKEA.

This thing is new!

Hi there, I’m really interested in photography, video creation and imaging technology and i’m going to make all sorts of content about it!

This site is primarily about that stuff, but also about the things worth recording, the important stuff like food, booze, art, music, live performance and all the great cultural stuff that goes on in a big city like London (my current home). I also love exploring the great outdoors so you’ll see natural landscapes and wilderness too and hopefully a whole lot of travel photography and videos.

I’ve just started experimenting with creating my own short videos, you can find these on my video page or subscribe now on Youtube! I’m very keen about the possibilities here, it’s such an exciting time to be someone creating content and telling big and small stories using photography and video.

You can contact me with this form, if you wish to collaborate on some fun photo/video/other creative project, i’m open to all suggestions!

Thanks for reading
