_9280007 Darned Fluorescents!

Testing both my new 17mm Olympus lens and the comparative color of new under cabinet led lights. This image represents a combination of lighting sources: window light, ceiling tungsten floods and three colors of fluorescent bulbs! Not easy for a camera to interpret with auto white balance.

I can desaturate the cyan to get rid of the cast from the vent hood light, or I can look for a bulb with better color output, which I'm going to do.

Happy to report the 17mm focusing is way, way faster than that from the Panasonic 20mm lens which I truly love, except for its failure to lock focus a good deal of the time.
