    Default So, I dug out the E1 for a bit

    I've loved this camera since the day I got it. Then, one day I bought the 11-22mm lens
    from our own, formerly passed, Bill "bootstrap" Turner. He told me it would be magic on the E1.
    I never got around to trying it on there, but WOW! is all I can say. Unbelievable colors and razor sharp!

    It IS a magic combination.

    Lovely sunset shot, Jim, not overdone as sunsets so often are. I can almost smell the trout grilling....

    I like the sunset shot very much too, but I really like your encampment most. :-)

    Indeed, E-1 plus 11-22 is a magic combination. And IME the lens just gets better and better as the sensor resolutions go up—it's outstanding on the E-M1 as well.

    My E-1 kit is now very simple—body, 11-22, 35 Macro, and 50-200 plus EC-14. Two spare batteries, remote releases (both IR and cable). Tripod adapter plate. A couple of 8G cards. That covers it all: a complete system. 11 years old on the body, still going strong.

    Beautiful Jim.
    Do you get the impression that the images from the E-1 are less urgent, more relaxed and creamy than the latest sensor?
    Cheers,
    Don

    Just goes to show that older isn't necessarily obsolete, or that newer is better. Looks like a combination you might be playing with for a while.
