Happy New Year.

January 6, 2007

It’s been awhile. I’ve been so busy with the GlassyEyes site, that things here have quieted down a bit too much.

I got a new lens for the camera. I used my “bonus” from work to get me most of the way towards the gorgeous and VERY flexible, Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 zoom for the Olympus “Four Thirds” system. I’m very impressed, but have had little time to actually use it. I need a trip somewhere to put it through its paces — and to regain some perspective before things get crazy around here again. I plan a detailed review of the differences between it and the 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 in the coming weeks.

I bought a Nintendo DS Lite for my birthday and have been “gaming” with the guys at work and the kids at home (but only on weekends!). Great little piece of hardware. I remember thinking, “what a contrived system that is,” when they announced it, but I was completely wrong. Some of the best user interfaces, and control schemes I’ve ever seen.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

Pictures OF the Lens – Sigma 30mm f1.4 for Four Thirds

So, when I was looking at purchasing this lens (which I love), I couldn’t find any pictures of it on camera.

Here you go. She’s a fatty.

Started a Photoblog

I repurposed an old blog — took me a half hour to delete all of the old entries and update a few things — as a Photoblog. Yes, you can still see all of the photos over at my beloved Flickr, but I’ll highlight some of the good (and bad, and ugly?) stuff over at the ropadope photoblog (


Arrived! Sigma 30mm f1.4 for my Olympus!

All I can say so far, before really giving it a workout, it that it “feels” solid. It’s a heavy lens. It looks great on the E-500 — you can almost hear all the light being sucked in through all of that glass. I’ve taken a few shots, nothing noteworthy yet. I hope to post some samples in the next day or two for all to see.
