The Olympus Pen E-PL9 - Punch in your Pocket

I love my Nikon D850 (and D800) camera, the image quality and feature set are simply stunning. It is, in my view (and in others), the best dSLR on the market today. It's also big, bulky, and not always convenient to carry. Enter the Olympus Pen E-PL9.

In a Pinch

You may have heard the expression, "the best camera is the one you have with you" uttered from time to time and, for the most part, it's probably a truism and almost inevitable that it's a cell phone. Today, that's no different for me:

Both taken with an iPhone 6S+ while out shopping for plants today. I'm sure I could have gotten more detail using my Nikkor 105mm macro lens married to my D800, but seems that I wasn't carrying that combo for some odd reason...

I think these are some shots I would have been super happy to have nailed with some of my earlier dSLRs and they remind me that, in the right light, an iPhone or similarly capable phone can do the job more than adequately.
