    and that's Disneyland. :D  I was so excited to take the OM-D with me to Disneyland. I haven't been there since 2006, and the last pictures I took there were with a point and shoot camera. I have learnt a lot since then, and have a lot more to learn from photography. I'm still learning on what the OM-D can do, but it's been amazing. One thing that stands out was that I got on a ride, and my camera and I got wet. People looked at my camera when the ride ended, and looked at me with an expression that said "you're dumb for taking that with you." That's what I read from their expression, but then I turned the camera on, continued taking pictures, and walked away. haha. It was so funny! :) 

    Pictures were taken with the 12-50mm lens, and the Panasonic 25mm

    Well here are the pictures. :D

    Lovely colorful pictures! Looks like your family had a great time there!

    We are pretty spoiled for having a Disneyland here in HK, so that I get to take my daughter there every year. However, it is tiny in comparison, and we never get that blue sky!

    I've recently been to Disney World in Orlando and I can say the the monicker 'the happiest place on earth' rings pretty true. I like your selection of images and this one stands out to me. Mostly because I like the fact you got creative. You look a good match with your camera.

    Wow thank you very much for the comments. :D 

    It really is such a nice place. I think I can appreciate it more now. It's weird because as a kid I loved it, and as a teenager I thought it was just ok, and now I fell in love with it again. I don't know if it's because I'm older and it brings back memories.

    There really is so much going on at Disneyland, and I want to go back to capture more. There are many pictures I didn't get to take. :( 

    My family came from Mexico to visit Disneyland, and they looved it! Have you posted your pictures from Disneyland HK? I would love to see pictures. :) 

    I've never been to Disney World, and would love to go. :D  Thank you very much for the comment. :D  I've been starting to play around even more with shutter speeds because of IBIS. It really does help.

    Most of the outdoor pictures were taken with the 12-50mm lens, and all the indoor pictures were taken with the Panasonic 25mm.

    I really want to buy the Olympus 12mm F2 lens next. If I do buy it I think I'll sell the kit lens, but it's been useful because it's weather sealed.

    This is one of the reasons I'm still hanging onto my e5...weather sealing from 7-283mm

    Nice shots! I went to Disney World for Christmas and took my 14-150 and the 17/2.8 for indoor shots. I also took the 12-50 as it rained one day. The OM-D (or any of the MFT cameras) is the perfect travel camera for me. Small size and excellent image quality as your shots show.

    It's nice to have all that range weather sealed. :D 

    Thank you guys. :D  What lens did you use the most at Disney World? It really is the perfect travel camera. I was surprised that it felt the same weight as my dad's Nikon D90. The weight of the Canon T2i that I had bugged me, but the OM-D is probably heavier. I guess what bugged me wasn't the weight, but the size.

    The OM-D is about 20% lighter.

    530g vs 425g

    Nice pics, been to Disneyland a few times, always wanted to take my camera though that was back when I still just had a DSLR.

    Curious as to what you used for a bag and if you had any close calls on rides? I have thought about taking my OM-D in the near future though worry about it getting damaged.

    Ahh ok. Well I didn't get tired of having the T2i with me, but it did bug me. haha

    Thank you. :D  Haha you're going to laugh as what I use for a bag. I use a Gameboy carrying bag that I've had for over 10 years. My OM-D accessories fit seem to fit perfectly in some compartments. haha. I looked for the bag on eBay. Here are pictures I found. haha

    Lens here.

    I any big problems with my OM-D. There was a ride though where I was nervous because the ride would be us going up and down. When ride just let itself fall I felt the OM-D stay in place while I went down. lol

    I used the 14-150 by far the most. But that's why I bought the lens anyway. The 17/2.8 fit in my pocket, along with the little flash. Previously, I carried my K5 or K20 and a superzoom. Sometimes I'd carry the 40/2.8 pancake with me. Even though the K5 is one of the smallest dSLRs out there, it wasstill noticeably larger than my OM-D kit.
