Yes … Very nice photographs.


Simply superb photography esp the top one
I must look into this lens of yours
wonder if I can adopt it on my nikon… there are so many adapters being sold nowadays… wonder… 


… this one was with DMC FZ18, older camera — with no interchangeable lens.
SLR cameras have come up with adapters for micro-4/3 lenses – do review which suits your camera especially from image stabilization perspective.
