    Is that a word ??? Well it should be ! lol. ok first day of driving for 6 weeks...I bit the bullet and armed with E-PL1 set off north for a flea market... incentive- one good regular camera dealer....

    - met 2 older guys who are well into micro 4/3's and using their old lenses-they both have stalls at the May London photographic fair
    - got a Zuiko 135mm f3.5 lens for £20.00
    - got my OM primes to work at infinity focus with a new adapter
    - xD card arrived via fleabay for an old digi-compact

    Have had a great day !

    Sounds like a good day. Where's the flea market - I'm looking for one with a few good camera stalls.

    The 135mm is very, very good on micro 4/3rds. One of the few OM lenses I've got that is usable wide open. I'm keen to see if the 200/5 is as useful. Just need to find one at a decent price!

    I spent the day reminding myself that the 45/1.8 is one of the best lenses you can put in front of a m4/3 camera. Blew the OM primes I was using last week on the cherry blossoms into the dust.

    Thanks ! The stall was at Tynemouth Market. However the dealer does work out of a shop in Newcastle Upon Tyne and he is on line but the stock list isn't up to date. It's Classic Photographics in Newcastle Upon Tyne....

    That 45/1.8 has produced some amazing images on Flickr....
