    Fun period event on Governor's Island off the southern tip of Manhattan; felt like being in a period movie set (except for the ubiquitous smart phones and a few DSLRs). All with X-Pro 1 and manual Olympus Pen-F 70mm F2.0 lens. JPGs with some PP on LR4.4.

    That looks like a fun event. I love the way you showed today's technologies and yesterday's dress code. The DSLR is almost as big as the women! And the ways the gentleman looks at his girlfriend in the second to last photo is something of all times!

    I was a party pooper and went in jeans; it did feel odd

    Thanks. I use on standard Provia setting. MF focusing generally not a problem, though I do use the focus check/EVF magnify feature every now and then.
