    I assumed that a thread like this already existed. If there is one, point me to it. I know how much people like to photograph their new toys (I mean tools).

    I wanna see black ones and silver ones. Ones with native glass and ones with legacy lenses. I wanna see pinhole lenses attached and I wanna see big honking teles attached.

    Show us the OMD on your couch, show us your OMD visiting the Taj Mahal. Show me yours with a wonderful bokeh behind it. Show me yours surrounded by detailed in focus surroundings.

    Let's see a few dressed up in half cases or totally stripped down to bare metal. I wanna see some E-M5 porn here.

    and if one single person points me towards a Google image search I swear I'll smack 'em.

    Yet have to figure our how to add an image to the post, but this is my week new OMD as seen by my Nikon D90.

    For the Love of Photography: Olympus OMD it is..

    Love the camera.
    Still have to get used to the really wide perspective of the 12mm lens for my people shots and keep faces away from the corners..

    One could argue this meets the definition of "From the sublime to the ridiculous" but I sort of like it!

    Kenez: how's the af speed of the 14-54 mk2 and can you post a shot without the grip and without the base plate?

    The 20mm is gone and replaced by the 25mm, but you get the idea.

    Here you go. I think the ergonomics with 4/3 lenses are better with the grip attached (usually both pieces but at least the upper portion). As far as focusing speed goes, this is actually a Mk I lens but it is definitely useable except for fast action shots. I would say it typically locks focus in 1-2 seconds. The Mk II version might be better since it is optimized for contrast detection focusing. I should have stopped down for these shots since at F2.0 the depth of field is very shallow but at least you get the idea.

    Your black body comes with a silver kit lens?

    In my country, the silver body comes with black kit lens only, no silver lens.

    I like the covered logos...I was thinking of filling in the white lettering with black paint and wiping the rest clean, but I'm to chicken so far...

    A few members have used a toothpick to actually remove the white paint from the letters. Results look very clean.

    Why do you have all the I.D. covered up in your camera?

    yes that's how it came. I asked for a black lens but they didn't have any. I'm not fussed either way

    Just to give it a more stealth look and I like it.

    That is a Gariz soft shutter button, found here on eBay.

    I've actually done this with all the older m4/3 camera's I've had, a GF1 and G3. I used just a matte black paint and it was very easy. I've since sold both, couldn't really tell if the buyer cared or not. I just like the look of it more. I had some left over leatherette skin left over so I just cut a few pieces and see if it would stick before painting this one.

    Not me. I mean, what's the point when one E-M5 looks the same as any other. Why not just do a Google Image search for this, i.e. "camera porn"?
