Downtown Towers

The towers of downtown Toronto from the city's 'Cloud Garden' on Richmond Street. I stumbled upon this amazing little downtown park the other night while out with my camera (or in this case Nick's camera with a sweet ultra-wide angle lens). I'm going to have to go back when the weather is nice and the leaves are back on the trees. There's a big waterfall and an indoor gardens/greenhouse feature too that I want to see when it's open sometime. : )

Another wonderful shot Iain, this one is more of 'this world' than the previous one.

You're going to have to get a lens like this for your Olympus wink
Iain Myrans: I'd love one but have you seen the price of the 7-14mm! Olympus' lenses are incredible but they cost so much! That one is $2000 Canadian, it'll be a long time before i can afford it. I've thought of the 11-22mm but that's still not as wide as Nick's lens on his Canon.

I just discovered the Cloud Garden this week too! It looks so cool, but I was heading to Union so didn't have much time to explore and look around. I want to go back soon...

Amazing how big cities downtown looks alike... (http://www.monika.shutterchance.com/photoblog/56510.htm). I admire the colours of your picture, especially the sky... perfect navy blue!

My E-400 came with 14-42 and 40-150 lenses, they'll be standard with the E-410 when it's marketed and I'm sure some people will be selling them on. I know the wide angle isn't as great as for the one you were using, but it certainly gives good results.

Have you looked somewhere like Ebay to see what's available? As an alternative, I think Sigma are now making 4/3 compatible/Olympus-fit lenses now, they're usually quite a bit cheaper.
Iain Myrans: Hey Ellie,
Ya the 14-45 that I have is quite a good lens -- probably the best kit lens any manufacturer puts in a kit with the exception, probably, of the new (and from what i hear better) 14-42. It's nice and wide but it's not close to as wide as the 10mm on the 1.6x canons. I'll be honest though, I'm not a big fan of te canon colour. You can tell what photos on my blog were shot with the canon and which were not. They do stand out for that but I love the fact that there are so many cheap cool lenses for em! I've not chedked ebay for the 11-22 or 7-14. Everyone I know who uses the 11-22 is in love with it and makes it their main shooting lens.
