    2015 is coming to an end, so time to start these retrospective threads :)
    We've had some great trips and some nice weather this year - lots of nice memories to think back to while the El Niño rains are pouring down outside... :)

    Also, with the odd "m43 is lacking this or that" post here and there, it's maybe nice to focus on the positive things of our cameras of choice.
    I love the choice of lenses m43 offers: Lots of quality zooms, that almost double as macro lenses... small quality primes at different price levels - from fisheye to portrait to macro... weatherproof options...
    I like how small everything can be. (I don't like to change lenses when I'm hiking... Thankfully m43 is small enough that I can simply take another body)
    It's a fun format to use, and you can do a lot with it!

    Some of my 2015 highlights (in chronological order :) ) :

    So easy to tell from pictures when the shooter loves what they're doing.

    Thank you! Yes, I love those colors too! Funnily enough they're from my oldest 43-camera (E1, 5MP) - straight out of camera.
