    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    I have the Nikon mount version.
    I dont use it every day, but when I do it justifys the cost (which wasnt all that painfull).
    Whilst it works well handheld thanks to the anti vibration feature, I do get much better results when I use a Mono or Tripod.
