this mildly dystopian vision of berlin’s future was shot on a recent stroll through friedrichshain again. this is one of the first pictures taken with the panasonic wide angle conversion lens gwc-1 attached to the lumix 14mm pancake. when i got the 14mm on ebay as a de-kitted lens i had the converter in mind already. the converter seems to be quite scarce, though. i was lucky and got a used one from amazon warehouse deals very quickly (as opposed to four to five weeks delivery time for a new one) and i’m very happy with it.
as you might know my first serious attempts at photography happened to happen with the great panasonic lx-3 and that had a 24mm equivalent lens. i really did miss the wide angle at first with my e-pl1 but then i got over it. at least i thought i did. now with the gwc-1 the good old wide feeling is back and i’m very happy with the converter.
soon i will post a few more images and a short assessment of the gwc-1.
