    Getting away from the basics

    Hi Folks,

    Just a reminder. As you know we'll check the EXIF data to be sure the image was made using ยต43 at the end of the day.

    But it would be really nice if you take an extra 2 minutes to inform us which body and lens made the image... As in:

    Oly EPL2 / Oly 17mm. Or GH2 / Lumix kit Zoom 14-45mm

    Thanks so much, and thanks for all the great entries to date! :thumbup:
