Hmmm, 300mm f/4 he thinks, looking over his glasses at 'er indoors asleep on the sofa, head tilted right back, emitting those combination snore/gargles. Closing his eyes, the sounds reminding of a time, many decades ago when wash-day was a Copper on the stove, bubbling slowly as Grandma gently boiled the undies…That's why I haven't bought it (yet), 'cause I like being married.
That's a decent bonus... helps make the price tag more palatable I guessHere's the first of the bonuses from Olympus this month.

I used get a lot of insurance calls, I reckon they keep databases because they've tapered off a lot.James has been my inspiration: I see scammers in a totally different light now and an opportunity for some home-grown fun
I damn well nearly hit BUY about 10 minutes ago with the thought of selling off my mk2 ....... did have a small cry firstThis will make present owners of the E-M1X wishing they had waited a little longer.

My hand was hovering over it too, but then I remembered I like being married & then we have a daughter's wedding to pay for later this year too.I damn well nearly hit BUY about 10 minutes ago with the thought of selling off my mk2 ....... did have a small cry first
I still don't regret the early buy or the price paid but i'll beat we are seeing Cost price + 1%
If only I could convince them of the 'benefits' of that package. They would only say "What's wrong the cameras & flashes I already have?" (FL50 & FL50R with E-M1 & E-M1 II)and what a wonderful Camera flash combination that we can use to capture those special moments missed by the hired pro tog.
Not sure your wedding party size/bill but 3.5k could be a rounding error? somewhere?
Oh come on not thinking quick enoughIf only I could convince them of the 'benefits' of that package. They would only say "What's wrong the cameras & flashes I already have?" (FL50 & FL50R with E-M1 & E-M1 II)
She may reply, "Just use that FL-LM3 splash proof flash for the snap shots you'll take!"Oh come on not thinking quick enough
" Darling i have this wonderful weather sealed cameras but the flash units are not and you just never know if someone will spill or throw a drink over one or both at the wedding, it would be a disaster. Olympus is going to GIVE me a new weather sealed flash for the much better camera and highly reduced bargain at that. I'm sure i could sell off the mk1 and FL50 to cover a chunk of the cost "
BTW i have a fully functional FL50 that doesn't get used enough, the Godox gear has somewhat made it redundant. Now once Adorama list the X2T units i'll grab one as it has the pass through hotshoe.
