Olympus E M-1ii, f1.2 glass, and LOTS of frogs (and Fotodiox)
Currently, Olympus, is allowing our sales-guy, Troy, to try out the their flagship microfourthirds camera, the Olympus E M-1ii, along with their PRO f1.2 lenses (17mm, 25mm, and 45mm). Just recently, he took this gear down to Milwaukee’s Public Museum to see the FROGS exhibit that was going on. He also had along a screwmount Takumar 105mm/2.8 lens and M42-to-MFT adapter from Fotodiox (who we’re doing a Demo Day with on Jan 27).
Here’s some of the photos he made!

Such a variety of frogs to see, and all with such unique characteristics! All above shot with the 45mm/1.2 lens.
All above shot with the 17mm/1.2 lens. It’s always neat seeing families at the museum, as the kids are mesmerized by so many of the exhibits!
Not too far from the museum is the Milwaukee Central Library, and Wisconsin Avenue, which has some great memorial statues. These were great to play with that Takumar screw mount 105mm/2.8 lens and Fotodiox adapter. The lens’ close-focusing distance wasn’t much suitable for the close-up work of the frogs, but outside it did great.
