    You are going to hate it - big, clunky, slow to focus, poor image quality, loud and constantly vibrates.

    Send it to me and I will dispose of it for you:biggrin:

    Congrats! Budget in some time to go through the configuration menus - there are oodles of options and the odds are if there's something you'd like to change, there's a setting for it somewhere.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome!

    I had too many other things to do at home and around 1:30 am I started reading the manual that came in the box. I will download the full manual to study it for sure. Having an EPL-1 helps as far as the menus but I am pretty sure that many options will be beyond my capabilities. :rofl:

    Like I need to figure out how to activate the Macro mode. :mad: 

    Later tonight I will start taking some pictures and post some of them, but not before I update to 1.5. This unit has 1.2.

    Again, thanks for the warm welcome! I really feel like I just joined a new forum! :biggrin:

    Macro mode - hold the macro button down and slide the zoom ring all the way forward.

    Firmware upgrade - make sure to have fully charged batteries - it will make you first update to v1.3, and then to v1.5.
