It seems like every three or four months I look in the cabinet and notice that I have a bunch of gear that I have collected and then I head off to the BUY/SELL forum here and on a few other sites and clear out the gear with the naive idea that it will stay that way. I am especially vulnerable to legacy glass (my version of crack). Then a few weeks after the clearance sale I notice I have a PayPal surplus and it starts all over again. Part of it is that there is always something new and shiny that is waaay better than what I already have for whatever reason. Well, it's 2012 and in honor of the ending of the Mayan calendar (and fiery apocalypse according to some corners of the more "special" parts of the known universe) I've decided to try something. I recently acquired an E-PM1 as a gift. I like it well enough. Truth be told I think I prefer the G2 I just sold but rather than bundle it up and sell it try to get back the thing that I sold because it was better than what I have now...(see where this is going?) I am going to commit to make pictures with what I got. My E-PM1 is a perfectly serviceable camera. Is it IDEAL? no, but then again nothing ever is. So in that spirit I am committing to using what I have until it fall apart in my hands. I will learn to work around what out cannot do, exploit its strengths and find solutions to its weaknesses.
