Pudu Wet Market with Pro

Public holiday again! Whenever it is holiday or weekend, I'll get a chance to went shooting with Robin and Carmen. Today is none of the exception. Managed to hands on with Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 PRO lens. Sigh, felt my Olympus E-M1 just completed with the lens. Too bad I wouldn't need the lens nor going to buy it. At least not at this moment with my financial status. My 12mm and 45mm still served me well or I still have my Olympus 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 lens which is one of the reason I am buying E-M1 in the first place.

So yea Pudu wet market. A market that located beside Jalan Pasar which I never realized it until today. It is a very very huge market! As Robin said, people around this market definitely the friendlies market we ever been. Some of them are pretty over friendly I must say. There are alot stuffs to get too at here which made me almost forgot my main objective this morning.

The Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 was incredible awesome lens. Maybe, maybe just a not on par with those CaNikon 2470 f2.8 but I felt it was good enough. Solid quality built, weather and splash proof like the E-M1 body and most important is, the lens performed very very well with Olympus E-M1. I was shooting between f.28 and f4 with this lens for whole morning. I am satisfy with the sharpness! Well I guess no point by just saying. Hopefully my pics speak louder than my words here.

The only things I probably dislike about the lens are the weight (but hey! It is full aluminium built!), lens size (but hey! It is f2.8 mid range zoom!) and the zoom ring a little bit tight for my liking. Oh well, it was personal based feeling anyway since I am sucker for smaller lens and overall portability. But I don't doubt myself will be getting the lens someday when the times come and I need it. It is really awesome lens that easily replace my 12mm and 45mm in terms of focal length coverage.
