    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    Cool, David. Always ready to listen to some updating info from a trusted old timer like me. Let us know how the E-M1X works with the SHGs so I can get a bit more amped about buying one myself.

    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    Thanks for the reply, David. I see your entries from time to time around the various forums and always find I can rely on your well thought out opinions.

  3. Lens Topics Re: M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens and E5

    Laingjd is correct. It will not fit. However, I would look around for a used 14-54mm (either version 1or 2) for less money. I really think it's a better lens than the 12-60mm. Best diffracted...

    Still shooting with the E-5 and a full complement of SHG lenses. However, my current travel camera and every day shooter has tended to be a Stylus 1s, which is really an amazing little camera. ...

    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    I still check in every once in a while. And yes, I am still using the trusty E-5 and full set of SHGs. So, not a lot of interest in downgrading to micro 4/3. I suppose I will have to eventually...

    I still check in briefly every once and a while. Actually, there's nothing mysterious about it

    1. Micro 4/3 was (and, frankly, continues to be) of very little interest to me.

    2. Way too many...

    Landscape/Outdoors North Bowl On Mica Mountain

    Been a while since I posted a photo here. Last month, I thought I would break out the trusty little XZ-2 for some pano work, so I slapped on the skins and hiked up to the top of Mica Mountain. This...

    I shoot a lot of birds but it no secret around here that I am not a fan of the 50-200mm for birds, especially when using either TC. Your bird shots are about what you can expect from...
