everyone, say hello to my new lens, the olympus 17mm f2.8.
I got it free!:D:D:D
It all happened to be a blessing from God and luck of timing cause the day I decided to get my Olympus pen ep3 was the day that Olympus pushed out its Christmas promotion!
I think if you buy an Olympus Pen Ep3 from registered dealers in Singapore (the set comes with the standard 14-42mm kit lens) you will get a free additional battery and the 17mm f2.8.
It is really good for portrait shots!
For an amateur like me that is!
I read many reviews online detailing how the edges of the pictures were not sharp but I tried it today and I think the bokeh is good enough to make me weak in the knees! Haha.
Love the speed and the picture quality.
The best thing is: IT IS FREE!
I still want to invest in the Olympus 45mm f1.8. That will be a really good portrait lens for an amateur level..
and honestly speaking, you can use these prime lenses for scenery shots too!
I love the fact that it is so small and compact and the fact that I do not have to unlock the lens!
Think this means that I’d not get the Panasonic 20mm f.17 since im satisfied with the 17mm.
The cost of the Pan 20mm f1.7 is in the range of SGD500+++ It is really quite expensive for a micro 4/3rds lens!!!!
So if anyone is interested, I’ll attach the facebook link of MS colour the shop I bought from. They are based in Ang Mo Kio but their prices are really good!
You can private message them to get a quote!
So anyway, after I collected my free lens and battery, I headed down to Vivo to meet the two girls!:D
Sheryl and Lisa:D
We headed to Sentosa, Siloso beach after that!
(We had planned and failed to go so many times! It always rained….)
The sun was nice and bright today!:D
We managed to get about an hour of nice weather before it rained!
prepare for an extremely picture heavy post!
I must apologise for the slightly over-exposed shots cause SILLY ME was wearing shades and i forgot that that would affect my visual judgement>.<
i thought I looked funny here.. like awkward lol. with the rubbish at my feet…
it started to rain so we headed to the large pavilion on Siloso beach!
Sat there for probably half an hour to HTHT but it was difficult with primary school kids running around and workers dragging lockers in place for Zouk Out which is happening tomorrow!
later we headed back to Vivo and went looking for earrings for Lisa’s mum and after she left,
Sheryl and I headed to the petshop at Vivo (suddenly cant remember the name of the place>.< )
WHERE I GOT TREATS FOR FLUFFY WHOM I AM MEETING NEXT WEEK.
and then we went to coo over all the puppies!!!
I really want a dog in future…
I know it’s sad and heartbreaking when they die but to have a friend so loyal is really something that is so hard to come by…
But we’ll see… maybe I’ll just end up keeping Chinchillas:)
Headed home after that and had dinner at the same ole place at JE.
Met my primary school friend Darrell and had a nice 5 min talk hahaha.
Mummy called me when I was at Sentosa and I think I may be heading to Beijing if it is okay with my cousin…. we’ll see!:D
