    Default I am so bored.

    I have a nice Pana 45-200 to look at and fiddle with, but I don't have anything to attach it to. I also have a nice flash, but nothing to use it with. I just shipped out the defective camera this morning. They will have it on Thursday. When will I have my new one? Who knows? Sigh.

    I am borderline paranoid on this, so even my backup camera has a backup ...

    edit: Actually, the reason I have a second backup camera, was that I got a GF2 included free, when I bought a slightly used 14mm f/2.5 ...

    Nothing paranoid about that at all. With the electronic cameras and auto-focus motor-driven lenses, I always had the entire lens range covered twice (usually the second setup was less expensive, but still workable in a pinch,) three flashes and three bodies on EVERY job. I've had the motors fail on two Canon lenses, but never had a body fail. I didn't (and don't now) worry so much about manual lenses, and since the set I have now is increments of about 15mm, if one has a problem it's not the end of the world.

    I called Cameta today to see if I could get the red version of the E-PL3. They said the new one will be shipped out the same day they get the defective one in, and they will give me a tracking number. They have been pretty awesome so far.

    Oh yeah, just let me dig up my pirate gold. Hey while I'm at it should I order one for you too?

    Good point. I'll get myself 5 or 6, just to be safe.

    I'll let you borrow one of mine. I had Enzo and Viktor drop me off a six pack of them last month. You never know when you might need one around the house, and I'm too lazy to have to go too far to pick one up.

    If you go to a m43 site's buy/sell I've seen EPL1s with the kit lens not selling at $150. Cheap backup there. I think they give the camera away with the lens. It's a $100 used camera. I have an EPL2 but to be honest I'm not that fond of it other than the compactness. The images are good, but I miss having well placed dials too much.

    Well, my camera was delivered to Cameta today, so if they can turn it around and get the new one shipped today there is a slight chance I could have it by Saturday. More than likely though it won't be before the middle of next week. Keep your digital fingers crossed for me!

    I will be getting my new camera and a couple of goodies in the post tomorrow!

    Without trying I ordered an ND filter, and an Olympus PEN holster bag that will arrive with my camera in the morning. To celebrate this happy accident, and the fact that I will once again be with a camera that by everything holy will trigger my flash, I am going to post my favorite image from my first 4/3 camera, my E-500!
