Long time Nikon owner, Medium Format film and 35mm before that. (Let's not talk about the Box Brownies.) I've decided that all work and no play is just plain dull and have decided to start doing some more frequent travel. Sized up the backpack holding the D7000, lenses, flashes and thought, "Sorry, you can't come". My wife likes her Panno TZ30 and it's easy to carry but it's not... well, you know... it's just not a DSLR. But I can't let her have all the fun taking photos. Oh well, I'll just have to make some sacrifices for portability. Sony RX100 looks nice but, no viewfinder? Can't have that. NEX 6 is dropping in price, similar sensor to my D7000, but hmmm, some hardware issues reported. Back to more research. Some nice looking Fuji's. But all of these little cameras are missing one thing or another that I can't just can't do without. What's that one? - an Olympus OMD EM5 - looks a bit like the OM1-n I used to own back in the 70s. Looks a bit too big, though. Let's have a closer look, anyway. OK, it ticks all the boxes and it does kind of look like a real camera. One of the local department stores has it on special and none of the "real" camera stores around town want to match the price. I manage to convince the salesman that it's been superseded by the EM10 ("10" is bigger than "5", isn't it?) and he drops the price a bit more and throws in an SD card. It's sitting next to a D5200 and it's much smaller in real life than it looks on the PC screen. So now I've owned one for 24 hours. So far, I'm shocked - it's really very impressive. Maybe no sacrifices at all for portability? This looks a great site. Looking forward to lots of reading and maybe getting some tips on my first prime. 17mm f1.8 looks good. Bit pricey here in Australia, though. Cheers, Paul.
