What does a workers camp, a Kampung, a Kowa, a Veydra and a Nocticron all have in common?

New and old

I think the answer is – just a really awesome experience for shooting and capturing the moment! The Kowa 8.5mm, Veydra 16mm and Leica Nocticron 42.5mm are all just brilliant native mount micro four thirds (m43) lenses.  And, a workers camp and kampung just make for an exciting day out with these lenses.  A couple of weeks ago as I was transiting from Malaysia to Vietnam where I caught up with a good friend of mine, Bjorn, for a few hours of shooting before I caught a plane.  We swapped lenses and casually explored the local area trying to get the most out of the equipment that we were using and really just wanted to document the local area.  I know that it won’t be long before these areas are eventually bulldozed, given their location near Mont Kiara.  I have tried to include the lens that I was shooting and some of the settings below each image.  The Kowa and Veydra were both used with the Olympus OM-D E-M5II and the Leica Nocticron was used with the Panasonic GH4.
