"Next Exit: Burger King!"
Yet not so fast, we are in the middle of nowhere. There is no exit and for sure there is no Burger King around. Towed away and forgotten.

Excellent Gary.
I particularly love that first photo; the mix of vertical and horizontal is wonderful.
Beautiful architecture too. Is it some form of military academy by any chance?

Thanks for the comment.....

It is (was) a private estate that was deeded over to be a public preserve. Located on Sarasota Bay in Florida. Hidden away, it is mostly used by local residents

Recently I went with friends to Avebury. It is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles around the village of Avebury, Wiltshire.

The weather was overcast when we arrived, and changed over the day with dark clouds, rain and then bright sunshine mid-afternoon.

It is one of the best known prehistoric sites in Britain, it contains the largest megalithic stone circle in the world. It was a place of religious importance to prehistoric pagans.Constructed over several hundred years in the Third Millennium BC during the Neolithic or New Stone Age, the monument comprises a large henge (a bank and a ditch) with a large outer stone circle and two separate smaller stone circles situated inside the centre of the monument. Its original purpose is unknown, although archaeologists believe that it was most likely used for some form of ritual or ceremony. The Avebury monument is a part of a larger prehistoric landscape containing several older monuments nearby, including West Kennet Long Barrow, Windmill hill and Silbury hill.

Ok, so I've been lusting after a PEN-F for a few years but have been reluctant to spend the money since I have the OM-D.2 but when I saw the recently reduced by $100 price it was enough to push me over the edge and to further rationalize, it's coming up on Christmas. Arrived today and the battery just finished charging.

Nothing special here, just a couple shots of some Christmas decorations around the house to give it a basic function test. LF jpegs SOOC with some cropping only on the flower shot. Looking forward to becoming more familiar with it.

A few more random shots from around the house.....all are SOOC jpegs, some were cropped. The color ones are profile 2, the b&w's are also profile 2, low grain and the shadow adjusted from -6 to -4, HL adjusted from +6 to +4, MT left at 0.

My used (new to me) Pen F arrived today. After charging the battery, I ran it through a few shots to make certain it works OK. Seems to be fine and I do like it. Condition is excellent as described by seller. My only concern is the shutter release button seems soft/spongy compared to what I'm used to on my E-M1ii. I realize it's a different design and it works like it should, just a different feel. Is this normal ? Would a shutter release button help me hit that button better ? Appreciate your thoughts.

Anyway, this was taken using my Helios 44-2 while checking manual focus / peaking.

Funny, this very topic raised a couple of weeks ago in a different thread here in this forum. The shutter button on the E-M1 series should be more sensitive with a lesser defined "half-press" resistance, while the Pen-F should have a much clearer, tactile resistance for half-pressing the button. That's the case at least with both my Pen-F, as for the E-M1 series I could only speak for the original (Mark I). Personally I very much prefer the shutter button on the Pen-F - be it with or without release button. I'm using one on one of my F's while the other one doesn't have one, screwing such a button in helps quite a bit, but it very much depends on the release button itself, some are quite bulky and large, I think those actually have a more negative impact rather than being helpful.
