    Very nice Zuiko! Sharp and the bokeh looks quite good.

    Don't know if it's your processing or the lens, but tonality in the shots is wonderful.

    If there's one quality of a lens I prefer over everything else it's transparency and this lens seems to have it in spades. No need to mention the terrific sensor behind it.

    Here are my LR settings developing setting. I didn't do any color adjustments, but the graduated filter also had a +20 clarity boost.

    I get it, Highlights -100 and Shadows +100 does the trick.

    I can't remember what tutorial it was were I got that, but the goal was to compress everything as much as possible before changing the tone curve...kind of like how videographers use S-Log for grading video.

    And the samples are continuing to be outstanding! A great lens in the hands of a skillful photographer!

    The isolation in the first shot is fantastic. I was getting anxious for that guy sitting on the rail. Looks like it could be a long fall down behind him. :)

    Having a few Olympus OM Zuiko's myself, I looked this puppy up. It's one honking big lens, but "the best!" of the lot. Nice pick, great shots and really good clarity. New to you? or did you pick it up recently? What attracted me to Oly were the smaller lenses. But while not one of those, I applaud your choice. Top drawer! Site says it' 67 ounces... which leaves me marveling at these shots all the more. Tripod? or handheld?
