Goodies indeed this Xmas. Not only did I get some North American Combine miniatures and Charley's War Volume IX, both of which I knew I was getting, I also got a surprise prezzie. I like surprises, and this one came in the shape of an Olympus F2.8 60mm Micro 4/3rds macro lens. I had forgotten how much better fixed focal length prime lenses are than zooms, no matter how good the latter might be.
Here are some examples done on the fly to test out the new lens.
|This, I think, really shows off the camo scheme quite well.|
|Super extreme close-up and one can really see the shading and blending, and dust, doh!|
|Sweet cruelties abound as I spot a splash of green on the wall of a building that I've never noticed before.|
|The Strikedog shape is nicely broken up against the buildings.|
|Dream Pod 9 Heavy Gear Jerboa paratrooper mech, shown for a size comparison.|
