    I was looking for a lightweight but still highly capable camera system for a five week backpacking trip through Greece, and m43 delivered. Here's a sampling of some of my favorites, there are many more starting here:

    All taken with my Em-5, Oly 12-40/2.8, PL 25/1.4, Oly 45/1.8, and Oly 12/2.0.

    Guardians of Knowledge. The National Library, Athens.

    Larissa castle, on the distant hill, still looms over the fertile valley floor. Mycenae.

    Drydocked. Kalamata.

    The Good Life. Kalamata.

    Racking out on the ferry to Crete. The blue lunchbox I'm using for a pillow holds the lenses, I talked about it in detail here:

    Samaria Gorge, Crete. Hiking down through it is the common route, and I did that too, but really the views are better from above.

    Guarding the Ramparts. Kalambaka.

    Blue Frontiers. Crete.

    Casualties of Love. I attended a performance of Erotokritos, entirely in Greek of course. Some of the musicians look like hillbillies so it must have been very authentic.

    Cubic Icing. Cycladic buildings on Santorini. The entire island is the caldera rim of a huge volcano: just a narrow ribbon of land between cliffs and the Mediterranean.

    I had a few more I wanted to add but it seems there's a limit of ten. So you'll just have to go to my own page for the rest. Happy travels!
