I shot this last week at the Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), as I headed back to Austin from my conference. The Canon G15 did it’s job, as I hope it would, whenever I carry this sucker around. At ISO 80, it can really create very solid images, especially in good light.
The G15 is my daily carry around camera and I bought it and the Olympus E-PM2 with me. The Olympus was dedicated for my urban landscape HDRs and I only had the Panasonic 14mm f2.5 + the wide-angle adapter. I regret not brining a second low light lens like the Panasonic 20mm f1.7. The G15 does great in good light but certainly not the best for low light, though in a pinch I push it to ISO 800.
The G15 body is similarly sized as my Olympus E-PM2 but the big difference is it has a collapsing 28 – 140mm lens. That’s the benefit of a point and shoot even over a small micro 4/3 camera. It turned out that I shot this scene at a 40mm equivalent. I find that I really don’t shoot telephoto much, I guess I do see in wide-angle. I do use the macro, however, which the Olympus with the 14mm doesn’t do well.
