    Hi all,

    I'm a long time Canon DSLR user (5dii plus a few lenses). Just bought myself an Olympus E-PL5 to explore the MFT thing and get a lighter camera. Got it with the 14-42 kit lens, but I can see me adding a pancake before too long.

    Great IQ.

    BTW - discovered that the latest RawTherapee development build (and maybe other builds) supports the raw files without any problems. It's also a very good raw editor - almost as good as Corel Aftershot Pro (formerly Bibble) which I've been using for several years now. In fact, unless Corel start supporting the more recent cameras, I may just switch to Rawtherapee for everything.

    Anyhow, looking forward to the E-PL5 and these forums.

    Paul

    Welcome. I'm really pleased with the IQ of the E-PL5. Lots of nice mu43 lenses out there. The Lumix 14 is my favorite small lens.

    Well, the NYC shots on my Flickr page are taken with the Pen:

    You'll see that I've been playing with the Art Filters!

    Still getting used to the ergonomics - it feels awkward after my 5dii and I think I'm going to have to buy the EVF - this holding the camera at arms' length isn't to my taste.
