    Agreed... I didn't wait for anything and bought it with my credit card the week it was released.

    This is the second photograph I took with it, in the V&A in London:


    A religious experience, indeed!

    I have the cash in hand... picking it up Monday... I don't use credit cards anymore... So I don't like spending money on something unless I allocate it prior...

    ahuyevshi, are you liking the adapted lens better than the Pany/Oly offerings?

    Honestly... I think my 20mm 1.7 will be going up for sale real soon... I feel like there are limitations that I don't have with the adapted lenses.. I'm not sure how else to describe it.. It might be because the E-P2 is kind of slow in AF (I did like the 20 on the GF1). I bought the E-P2 because I needed the EVF for manual focus. The screen is so bright that I rarely have to use mf assist (which I don't like anyway).

    When I shoot my dSLR I mostly shoot AF, and to me it feels like the camera is doing all of the work.. MF with EF Canon Lenses still didn't feel right to me... Obviously I will still use my dSLRs for paid motorsports jobs, however for personal use I am in love... I feel like I did when I was a kid stealing my dads Pentax... I shoot full manual..

    Then again I'm the guy who uses the exposure computer to go out and shoot a lubitel without a lightmeter.. So I might just be weird...

    As soon as I pick it up... It's not the size of the other voigts... It is about the size of the canon 35mm..
