    How do you get the data out of Lightroom? I tried the 75mm and did not like it. I sold it and bought the 40-150 2.8, that I love. I was happy to see your praise for the 7-14. It’s on my wish list as well as the 42.5. Thanks for your thoughts on these lens’s.

      Hello! To see the stats you must activate filter in the Library of your LR.
      There are also other options, like dedicated apps that show lots of information.

    Hi Dirk, I too am a professional wedding photographer. Traditionally I used Canon 5d’s. However I recently bought a Pen F for street photography and love it! Can I ask do you find the AF fast and accurate enough under low light conditions at weddings such as the 1st dance and reception? Or would one of the OMD’s be better? I ask because I would really like to switch to the light Olympus’s for weddings.

      Hey there,

      I don’t do weddings, but I do photograph on the street – I imagine the challenge to anticipate social interaction and the consequences for achieving focus correctly are quite similar.

      The Pen F has a nifty feature called “AF Targeting Pad”. You can find it in the menu with the AF settings. Enable it, make sure your touch screen is turned outside and when looking through the viewfinder with the camera pressed against your face, you can use your thumb to guide the AF target points on the touch screen where you anticipate the action to be you want to focus on. On the street, this is a game changer.

      The Pen F can also spot meter to the AF point you use. In combination with the AF targeting pad feature, I hardly imagine any other camera will fare better.

      Hope this helps. For me, this actually was the reason I bought the Pen F as I already had an E-M1.

      Tobias
