Olympus OMD E-M1, 7-14mm, F 2,8, 1/30 sek., ISO 400.
On photo tour in Copenhagen with my Olympus 7-14 mm lens.
Now the the turn has come to test my 7-14mm (FF: 14-28mm) wide-angle lens in the evening and night hours.
The test is part of my decision to invest in a fixed lens with aperture 1.2 or 1.8 or if I can use the lenses I already have. I take the pictures handheld and will try to evaluate if I can find a good combination of aperture, iso and shutter speed that gives satisfactory results in low light.
I had already decided to use aperture 2.8 on all the pictures.
A wide-angle lens is not suitable for all types of subjects but chosen for the right subject, such an objective can add drama and excitement. Since I had a plan to photograph close to the motives with a blurred background, such an objective may be appropriate in many cases.
I have to admit that I could not find as many motives as desired and therefore I did not get tested shutter speeds longer than 1/8 second or iso values higher than the ISO800.
However, the pictures I came home with from the photo tour I would regard as satisfactory, quite technically.
A preliminary conclusion must be that I can use my current lens 7-14 (FF: 14-28mm) for my nightlight photo project.
