    After selling off most of my m43 gear in the fall, I picked up an EPL3 in January, to get back in. I shot an EPM1 pretty much from fall 2011-fall 2012, so I decided to try the flippy screen on the EPL3. Very nice! But, I needed the touch screen for the AF lenses. Best combo for action kid shots. So, I got an EPL5, to get the touch/flippy screen. The larger grip attachment was also handy, to better manage the P100-300.

    Well, after not being able to sell my EPL3 for a reasonble price, I've decided to dedicate the EPL3 to Oly 15mm lens cap shooting, in B&W. Give that a play for a while.

    So, the EPL3 remains, the EPL5 is the new kid in town, and they join their mac-daddy, the 5D (pics shot with their annoying little brother, the RX100).

    I have to say, I do like the look of that CV40 on the EPL5 (I added a step-up filter to the CV, so it can take 46mm filters).

    That's the "large grip" for the EP3. Fits the EPL5. It is sweet indeed :)
