Bokeh heaven with the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens on Australia Day

Written by Gary on January 26th, 2013

Today is Australia Day, and in Melbourne, we have an annual vintage heritage car rally and the locals take the opportunity of going for a stroll amongst the cars and snacking on the many options from the temporary food stalls while listening to free music and watching the aerial antics of the Roulettes.

I took the opportunity to have a leisurely stroll and play with my beloved Olympus mZD 75mm f/1.8 lens on the Olympus E-M5 Micro Four Thirds camera – an absolutely awesome combination when you want bitingly sharp images with beautiful smooth bokeh – a photographer’s dream!

So here I present a few from today.

and some of the Paparazzi Dogs – a new, larger than life size series of statues in Melbourne’s Federation Square:

seems they are using a Canon dSLR:

If you are taking shots like these, make sure you turn off the E-M5’s face detection AF as this will over-ride your AF selection as in this shot where it automatically sets AF to the nearest person’s closest eye – great for portraiture but stuffs up your vintage car shots!
