I ordered one the morning it was announced. I ordered black but since then I saw photos of the silver and wished I had ordered that. I hope it comes this week. I have heard some people have been getting them already.
I have a TG-2. It's ok, I like that it is small as I use it as a secondary camera. I just like to snorkel and shoot over/under shots. I once drowned a DSLR in a Ikelite case so I shy away from putting expensive bodies in these cases that are big and bulky since then. I also have a Nikon AW1...

Olympus EP5 in silver with VF-4 $700 SOLD
I handled the E-M1 tonight. It feels really good in the hand, built in grip is beefy. The controls have a better feel than the E-M5 (I never liked the mushy controls of the E-M5). The screen looks really big too.
I was considering adding a DP2 to my camera quiver. I am a bit worried about the slow focus and lack of high ISO performance but I have other cameras that can do that. Ray Sachs has some really nice images with the DP2 (as well as other cameras) on serious compacts site, this week it's the...
HHH is good for a body with lens + one other but not much more, MM30i you could add two more lenses at least plus an iPad. I think the SUD20 is a bit larger than the MM30i but I like the layout of the MM30i
oly 45 OR oly 75
sam 7.5 Only if you have some fisheye images in mind
I would bring a tripod the best photos are early and late during magic hour where a tripod makes a big difference, and circular polarizer filters. If you are leaving soon be...
I too am going on a cruise late summer. Rome to Venice with many ports in Greece and one in Turkey and Croatia. I usually travel with DSLRs and often bring M4/3 for off time but I am planning on the opposite this trip. I will travel with a small tripod and a table top tripod too.
I will not...
Right on! When you spend $400, $700 or $900 you should get a lens hood and not have to go chasing all over eBay to order one from China for under $30 or pay Olympus ransom of up to $80 for a piece of plastic.
And the menus could use some refreshing.
I might as well post this here too. Oly 60 mm 2.8

Here are a few from my first outing with the EP5 this weekend in Ithaca, NY. I went to a lake, some waterfalls, a farmers market and botanical garden. I wasn't there to do photography so I didn't have much time to do much investigating of the camera and menus. I shot with 35 1.8 and 60 macro and...
Mate an RX1 and an EP5 would make a really cool camera. Quality of the RX1 sensor with lenses the size of M4/3 but I think physics may be against it. I have both and a bunch of others. Yesterday I shot the EP5 and the Fuji XE-1 together but I haven't yet gotten to the RX1 and EP5 yet.
Digital Rev has always been 90% entertainment 10% information. Kai is harsh on M4/3 but Lok (who is really the more technical and photo/video buff) seems to really like it. Sure the EP5 is not groundbreaking but it's an interesting step forward. My favorite video they ever did was the original...
I had one for a day at the original price (quickly returned) and it's not even worth $299. Major focus issues, bad design. Canon has fear of eating into it's DSLR line and designed a bad mirrorless camera.
I'm expecting delivery of the EP5 today but I won't get to try it until tomorrow. I didn't order the EVF-4 but I may get one. I'm looking forward to the Wifi and easily transferring images to the iPad. I ordered the silver because I like the classic look.
In general women aren't gearheads and that's what most forums are. Most tech and photo forums seem to be about 80% male. I'm a tech/photo geek and I've been popping in and out here for several years. Want Women, try Pinterest :-)
Here is a link to an article with eyewitness statements with a photo of I believe the alleged attackers. It should never come to something like this, but blaming the photographer is like blaming a woman is a short dress for being raped. To me it says something about the state of disrespect of...
Though the X100S isn't that small it is extremely light and jacket pocketable. I used to have the X100 but sold it when I got a Sony RX1 but it too is quite a bit heavier then the X100S.
When I want to go light (I often carry D800/D600) I go with the RX1 for wide and the OMD with a 45 or 75...
Black is nice but I won't be selling off my silver ones for this. Lack of included Lens hoods is the bane of Olympus lenses. When they charge $899 for a lens they should throw in a hood, Nikon, Fuji, Sony and others do too.
What a time of change the 1960's were. I was just a child of 5 in 1963 and the only news event I remember from that time is when Kennedy was shot. This shows how important the power of a still image can be that after 50 years they can still effect us.
I shoot with several types of gear from FF DSLR to high end small cameras and lots in between. While I've been shooting M4/3 for almost 3 years now and have a good set of lenses for the format to me the sweet spot is mid telephotos that allow me to go light yet fast. I will often shoot with a...
The Godfather scene was more like paparazzi then street photography. Some of the best street photographers do an in your face style. I sometimes do candids, I sometime ask people if I can take a portrait of them, it's two different styles. Sometimes people say something but usually not.
If you really liked your Canon primes why not get M4/3 primes? The Olympus 12, 45, 75. Best IQ, if that is what you are really looking for. I think you would be quite disappointed in the 40-150, I was. If you are serious about zooms look to the panasonic 2.8s.
