    After all, I have just bought an EM-1in large part based on the insight that some of you have unknowingly provided me with. This insight, though, has been invaluable help as I've added this little beauty alongside my DSLR armoury. And beauty it is too. I was lucky enough to test it on a business trip to Boston last week and it was great fun.

    Thanks all :smile:

    I could ask you to pop round, you're not far :smile:

    I have had a very busy time and hit the problem that I couldn't open Olympus RAW files. Downloaded their their own software but it's is so slow on my laptop, can't believe it. I will post my menial offerings when I can get organised. Promise.

    Yes, I had the issue for a few days after getting the EM1...I just set the cam to save both RAW & JPG so at least I can review the pics efficiently.
    I now have the LR release candidate that has the EM1 raw converter. It looks like I will be migrating from Corel's AftershotPro image library/RAW converter, as it doesn't look like there will be usable solution from them anytime soon.

    Hoping for a Black Friday sale someplace to snag a full LR install for cheap....

    Here are some from first few days use, both with a legacy OM 50mm F1.4 manual lens:


    I'm still trying to work out if the Focus Peaking mode is going to be the norm for my MF work...I've had great results just going off the EVF, using the zoomed view only when really needed.
