    Our local camera store (Mike's Camera) hosts an event at the Denver Zoo a couple times a year. Several camera companies come along and allow you to borrow a camera or lens for a couple of hours. Today I borrowed the E-PL5 and put my 100-300 mm and EVF lens on it. I didn't get to stay very long because we were with my twin grandsons (8 months old). Here are a few pictures:

    I enjoyed my hour with the E-PL5. Autofocus seemed very snappy.

    Pretty neat!
    Did your local store actually have the E-PL5 or was it the Olympus Rep :confused:

    I believe it was a local rep. He said the store should have them by late October.

    great to see the first photos using the EPL5. May well be the difference to
    upgrade.

    I already love the 100-300, nice to see how well it works with the new body. Thanks for the preview!
