    Some recent shots using my EPL1 with ZD35/3.5 (attached via DMW-MA1). I'm loving the VF-2 for macro - saves the stress on my neck!

    The "sized for web" view don't do the pictures justice - at 1:1, the detail is astounding. I'd say the EPL1 is easily sharper than my Olympus E-410 (already one of the sharpest full-size 4/3 cameras).

    I admit, I like bright, punchy colors. LR3 obviously added some extra saturation...which I like.

    Sadly, my wife also likes my camera. She likes how it's 'snappy' and how the pictures are 'crunchy'. Looks like she may be stealing it from me soon...

    Beautiful pictures! Good reason to get the OMD for yourself.

    I'd love an OM-D, but I can't justify it right now. I'll wait until my wife physically claims my camera as her own...she hasn't yet!

    Well done.
    I'll have to make it there sometime.
