    Default Hello from Australia! :)

    G'day!
    I am Monique - and I live on a sheep property - in the middle of NSW (western NSW).

    I would love to know if there are any other Aussie Oly users around!

    Love my Oly camera (E-30) but needing a second body and looking at the E-5 or do I hold out for the rumoured E7???

    I shoot a wide range of things - families, kids, babies, landscape, macro and so on. "Jill of all trades" out here where population are small and distances long!

    Cheer

    Hey Monique,

    David from Brisbane here.
    E5 user myself and I'm waiting patiently for the E7.

    I would suggest you wait if you can.

    What lenses do you have?

    Cheers

    Hi David,

    Thought as much .......

    I have the 14-54mm 1:2.8-3.5 II which lives on my camera ..... to 2 kit lenses which I haven't used since I got the 14-54 a year or so ago. I have the 35mm macro as well. I also have the 70-300 that I use to shoot my kids sport.

    Looking at the 50-200 SWD ... between that and the 14-54 I am thinking I could be sitting nicely! Then wait for another body!

    Trying to research the 50-200 to see if it is okay - so far all reviews are fabulous

    Tell me - the E5 - how does it handle low light? Something I struggle with {I shoot the local High School musicals here}

    Hi Monique,

    The 50-200 is a fine lens.

    I don't really use my camera for low light shooting but it is a know short coming of smaller sensored cameras, it is not impossible though.
    It's probably best to ask that question in the forum to get more experianced answers than mine.
