    Not at all works perfectly.

    Just wiped it down with a damp microfiber towel.

    Awesome shots! Great opportunity to take advantage of the weather sealing. Sad that so much destruction followed.

    I really like that second one. At first I thought you had done some selective desaturating, but then I realized nature did it for you.

    Hey guys, most of the images are using the Dramatic Filter except 1.

    Great shots! I took the OMD out in the rain with the 12-50 yesterday also, but all I got was one pretty good tree down. I think the approach of a hurricane is a pretty good time to use the "Dramatic Tone" filter, if anytime is a good time. Great stuff - I assume that since you're posting this stuff that you came through it OK....

    Yup power is out for me until probably Friday?

    Having lots of backup batteries everywhere has helped me a lot.

    Thanks for posting these great shots. I was a bit confused why vignetting occurs on the second B+W. Shouldn't a native lens have full sensor coverage?

    May I make a request? I greatly appreciate your providing the shot info below the photos, but would you make your text info slightly darker? They are nearly impossible to read.

    The deep hood causes vignetting. It's required to keep water off the front element/filter.

    Awesome! Glad I don't live in hurricane country anymore, but they are something to behold.
