A Christmas Caturday is a special Christmas Day and a special Caturday. So in that spirit I present a series of cat photos (along with one of Annie the Doodle) to help celebrate the Christmas season. The first photo in the sequence is Luke in his usual morning kitchen location, with our Christmas tree in back and out of focus. And his classic look…
Except for the first photo, which was taken with the Panasonic Leica 1.4/25mm, all others were taken with my Christmas present to me, a heavily-discounted-because-it’s-refurbished Olympus M.Zuiko 1.8/75mm prime. I got it because it’s my little gift to me for a long year, and because refurbished it was less than half the prince of the 1.2/45mm PRO, making it a lot more affordable.
As far as I can tell so far it’s an outstanding lens even wide open at f/1.8. At a 150mm equivalent it allows me more distance between the animals and myself, helping to better catch them photographically. I used to be a heavy user of 135mm film lenses from Minolta and then Olympus, so working with this lens isn’t a challenge at all in spite of a number of 75mm lens reviews.
The body on all these was the Pen F.
