    Just got my OMD, and I had to take a picture of something. I don't have a cat, so this is the best I could do before the rain came. Sorry that the light was a little funky (barn in shadows) and that I have not had time to set my camera up yet. I will get familiar with it over the next few days and post some better pics then.

    I came from an E-PL2, which I loved with two exceptions. I really use a viewfinder 98% of the time and wanted an integrated one, and I missed having dedicated dials and sub dials to change settings.

    The OMD feels great and I am looking forward to getting out with it. Thanks.

    Yes it is. Of course a SkiHound would recognize it.

    Just got my camera today and had it in the car while doing errands. A cliche for here but I wanted to take a picture of something. I have much better pictures of the barn before it was renovated and some nice fencing removed that framed it.

    Thanks for the chuckle! And a nice shot, even though it's not a kitty.

    Haven't ever made it to Steamboat but would like to give it a try. Snow doesn't look very good right now though. Enjoy the camera.

    Shouldn't have much trouble finding some beautiful stuff to shoot around Steamboat! Enjoy the new cam!

    SkiHound: I found an E-PL2 shot from this past season that might be more appealing for you (although the snow was not all that great this year).

    Ever consider taking a picture of a dog? I love your shot, even though there isn't a dog in it! I live close, I can bring you dogs!

    Dog for Rstrader

    Rstrader: My dog (not a very Colorado-looking dog to be sure) was a mess from playing in the snow and she wouldn't sit still, but here you go (E-PL2):
