    Decided to go completely micro four thirds and sold my Pentax gear and got the OMD to go with my Pen E-PL5, I'm getting to Old and Creaky to lug heavy equipment around now. :)

    After charging the battery decided to take some pics of my favourite subjects so I went straight down to the sons to take my three Granddaughter down to the park.

    Somehow I inadvertently managed to change the setting from raw to jpeg after the first few shots so they were all taken in jpeg..something I never usually do!

    Anyway onto the first pics I took with it.

    Gorgeous photos, Paul! Keep sharing them with us.

    You mentioned they were JPEG. Did you apply any post-processing?
