In preparation for a trip I am making in a few weeks time, I recently bought a 40-150mm lens for my Olympus Pen. Equivalent to 80-300mm on an SLR, but a fraction of the size and weight, it will be handy on my travels. I have had little opportunity to try it out since I got it. So with this in mind, and armed with a two for one voucher, a friend and I headed to London Zoo on Saturday.
It was an enjoyable day out, but photographically very challenging. A combination of the tricky lighting conditions (bright contrasty sunshine outside, mixed artificial light inside), glass and wire meant I didn't get many shots I liked. Not as thorough a test of the new lens as I was hoping.
