    Here are some shots that I took at the Christchurch Lantern Festival recently. I was there for a few hours with my fiancée - walking around, eating food, watching performances. My full kit (including travel tripod) and drink bottle all fit in my everyday backpack, and didn't cause me any grief carrying it at all! I saw more m4/3 there than I've ever seen in one go before - in addition to my E-M5, there were two E-M1s with the 12-40mm kit, as well as a PEN with a 17mm f/2.8. All of the m4/3 users (including me) were Asian :tongue:.

    The crowd was too packed along the river bank to set up a tripod, but I later crossed the river and took a few with a tripod...
