    polariser lah. but the sky is very blue but it overexpose too easily without the polariser. First time using a polarisor and I found out it did not work very well at 14mm due to the variation in the sky color.

    Most of it is just snapshots. I took like around 500 photos and only like 22 is ok I wonder do people actually like take more than 10mins to compose and wait for a shot? On my tour, no time to walk around the subject and look for angles. except at yongpyong which I had 2 hours to shoot on top of the gondola.

    I did not take much shots of korean life actually. I still quite shy at pointing my big E1 at the locals... how do you guys do it? There were quite a lot of interesting scenes which I missed.

    Wind30. Nice pics. I like most of them. Did u manage to lug the 50-200mm for the trip?

    yup but I left the tripod collar in the luggage all the time. My entire setup, E1 + 14-54 + 50-200 + FL36 on a sling bag was ok. When my shoulder needs a little rest I just carry the bag by hand. All in all quite a comfortable weight.

    Really liked the 50-200mm lens. One of the big reason why I bought oly. The 70-200 f2.8 is so heavy for C/N. The 50-200mm is quite a good portrait lens and I used it more than my 14-54mm for portraits. At 80-100mm wide open, it is quite good, IMHO. but got to stand quite far back

    Nice pics u got there !

    I didnt lug my gear along during my trip there 3 years ago cos i was travelling with my
    parents....i regretted until now

    however, my E-1 and just 14-54 was with me for my Japan trip last year....it was
    so care-free to travel alone, so many things to see and shoot....if anyone is interested,
    my pics can be found here : http://photobucket.com/albums/y108/j...05%20Apr%2005/
