Touring New Zealand with the Olympus E-M1, 12-40mm and 8mm fisheye

Loren Runyon, an Olympus OM-D E-M1 user and author of the blog Mirrorless Planet, recently took a two-week photography trip to New Zealand with his wife Catherine, who is also a passionate photographer. To document the trip, he started writing a series of five travel blog posts, each detailing a major geographic phase of the trip.

In the first post, he talks about how, from the moment they landed in Queenstown Airport, New Zealand immediately became one of their favourite places in the world thanks to the beautiful landscapes and friendly people. Whilst in Queenland area, they managed to visit the historic Arrowtown and take part in a stargazing tour where he experimented with the M.Zuiko 8mm f/1.8 fisheye for astrophotography.
