As I said in an earlier post, I obtained a Leitz Wetzlar Elmarit-R 28/2.8 
lens to use on my Oly E-510 as a walk-around kit.  The combination is much 
easier to carry than the same camera with its Zuiko 14-54 zoom.

The local hospital is in the midst of a large expansion program, giving me a 
subject that served for demonstration purposes.  While I did not have the 
camera perfectly level, I see no indications of distortion. The 28mm on the 
E-510 gives an angle of view similar to a 56mm lens on a full-frame 35mm 

Out of four quick shots, I got four keepers.  I think it will work out fine.

Comments and critiques welcomed.
