Puyallup Spring Fair & Panasonic S1R and 24-105mm f/4

Even though the S1R is weather sealed, I used one of these:

This was only my first time shooting with this camera / lens combo, and it did remarkably well. I really enjoyed the shooting experience, and it was without a doubt more fun to shoot with than either Sony or Nikon bodies. The only drawback is that it’s a big and heavy system, but with results like these, it’s a trade off worth making.
