    Thumbs up Re: Still testing the different pastures

I've been through rain, snow, dust, extremes of heat and cold and almost 100k shots later I am still clicking happily. I've played with other systems (not mine, friends) that cover a wide range of Canikon but have never been tempted to buy in. The affordable glass is crap compared to Oly, and the good stuff is way too expensive. I liked the 5DIII with L glass, great setup, but a massive cost.

    The next camera I buy will be either an E5 or its successor. I don't really care that much about whether in 5 or 10 years Oly won't be making 4/3 bodies any more, the kit I have will well and truly have paid for itself over the years. Do I occasionally wish for more ISO? Yes. But really the camera has never stopped me from getting a shot, most of the time it is all on me and my lack of skills that I mess things up.

    Here's some pics from my recent honeymoon trip around the US National Parks, all with E3 and HG glass. All shot as JPEGs (another reason I love Olympus). I printed some of these up to about 20" and they looked, to my eye, fabulous.
