Food Photography With Olympus Pen E-P1 and Voigtländer Nokton 58mm F 1,4 SLII

Food photography is one of my favorite subject. I love good food and I also like to take photos of the food while dining out. I used to have to carry a large DSLR to restaurants, which was not always convenient. Now with the Olympus Pen, it is much more convenient and less obtrusive to shoot photos of the food in restaurants.

I tested out the Olympus Pen E-P1 and Voigtländer Nokton 58mm F 1,4 SLII combination last night and I am quite pleased with the results. All the photos were shot in RAW, then converted to 16 bit TIFF with Capture One Pro and then further processed in Photoshop CS4 and re-sized and converted to JPEG for web output.

    • I bought the Voigtländer Nokton 58mm F 1,4 SLII at Echo Photo & Audio. They don’t usually stock Voigtländer lenses, but they ordered one for me. Please visit my “Recommended Camera Shops in Hong Kong” and “Camera and Lens Street Price List in Hong Kong” articles for info on where to buy and street prices. You can find links to those articles on the sidebar on the right.

      Of course you need adapter. The Voigtländer Nokton 58mm F 1,4 SLII is a Nikon mount lens and won’t directly fit onto the Pen. You’ll need to get a Nikon to Micro 4/3 lens adapter.
