    The Governor of my state showed up at my workplace yesterday for a tour. I was very busy on a project and had no time to spend with the entourage beyond being wrangled by our office manager for a photo op. We all stood in a group around the Gov. while three people shot our photo. Two of the three were just staffers, using small P&S cameras. The lone pro Photog, who I suspect was not press, but part of the staff following the Gov. was shooting with a M4/3 camera!

    I did not have the time to speak with her, as I was literally on a conference call concerning my project and pulled the phone headset off for the photo and immediately got back on the call afterwards. I did note it was likely a G2 or GH2, using an adapted lens.

    Probably a staffer for the gov who's into photography. I doubt if a news photog would use a manual focus lens. Was she also carring a bag and/or two cameras and/or various tags hanging from her neck?

    Maybe some of the press is finally catching on to :43: - it's certainly lighter and more convenient. :smile:

    I was at a lecture by a visiting ambassador last week and saw a lone photographer brandishing a PEN. I couldn't make out the lens (and kept askimg myself what lens would possibly work for such a thing), but it warmed my heart nonetheless!
