    Default Just bought a Oly 14-54 F2.8

    Hi,

    I am very new to photography, Just bought a Oly 14-54 F2.8 with my current E510. Any ideas to what type of pictures can i take as a start to practice or what kinda pictures will bring out the most potential of this lens. Initially i bought this for shooting people with great DOF, now i realise that a macro lens produces much much greater DOF than i though.









    Oly-E510, 14-42mm,40-150mm, 14-52mm F2.8

    Take what you like not what we tell you to take because if the subject matter doesn't interest you, its hard to take good photos of it. The 14-54 is very versatile lens, in a way a jack of all trades as all kits lens (even one as good as this) are designed to be.

    So, what do YOU like to shoot? Short of birding and high magnification macros, the 14-54 should be able to cover most of your needs.

    People portraits, kids, baby, grandma, grandpa, brother & sister, friends. You have a good close-up people portrait lense.
    Not sure if you can get close to birds with this but those in cage sure you can get close enough LOL.

    I think what you meant was shallower DOF?

    This lens is real sweet. You can dump your kit lens already.

    This should be in the 4/3s forums btw.
