    So, I went to my local camera store yesterday looking for a lite weight tripod to keep with me (BTW, I bought the Surui T-005 combo in red, nice little unit, good feel and extremely lite and compact). As I was talking to the sales rep, I noticed a box on the shelf. An OM-D it was. I asked if it was actually one in the box. Indeed it is, the rep said. They received five on Thursday and this was the one left.

    So, I picked up the phone, called my wife, and she said YES!!! Fathers day was a day early. I am the proud owner of a black OM-D. I really wanted a silver one, but, when you see the black in person, it's hard to pass up the awesome looks of it...

    I like supporting the sponsors on the site here, but, sometimes it pays to go to your local dealer.
