One month with the Olympus Pen F

Olympus Pen F

I miss having a tool that let me be the photographer.
— myself, in 2017

I guess what I meant by that was rather I miss having a tool that let me be an artist. The Olympus Pen F is exactly that tool. It's not perfect (anything above 1000 ISO looks cartoonish. 6400 is usable but probably not for print. The m4/3 is so far away from Nikon's full frame sensor that it is not even funny. There is no comparaison.

 The 17mm f/1.8 struggle to render a beautiful bokeh. Not very pleasing but for $300USD, you get what you paid for.
