    Bought an E-P3 recently and it is truly a street shooter's dream cam. I just love the E-P3's lightning fast performance and I was very happy with the results I got at my first attempt. Thanks for viewing! :)

    Greetings from another Hongkonger... Nice street shots! You are going to have so much fun with the E-P3... BTW, interesting choice of lens. I would think most people prefer to use either the Oly 12mm f/2.0 or the Lumix 20mm f/1.7.

    like the TST pics, nice place for street shooting, although causeway bay and mongkok are great areas as well.

    Great stuff. I would really be interested in hearing any thoughts you have about using the E-P3 for street shooting, as I am really looking into getting one for just that purpose. I also own the 14 2.5. Thanks, Rick.

    I like No.4 the best. 3 people all looking in different directions doing their own thing!

    Would love to see them larger though.

    Hi Rick,

    I would say the E-P3 is about as good as it gets although a swiveling LCS screen would make it even better! :)

    Been through DSLRs (too heavy), early M4/3 cams i.e. E-P1 (too slow), rangefinders (too troublesome although some purists might balk LOL) and am presently settling on 3rd gen M4/3 cams. Feel I am not missing as much shots as I used to. Hope this helps in your decision.

    Nice shots, HK is one of my favorite cities! The second image appeals to me, perhaps because that might be me someday...

    I just got a 14mm recently (today!) Amazingly light, compact and fast AF on the E-P3.

    Yes, post bigger pictures.

    Trying to post a bigger pic here, last time I used 800x600 but not too sure why it ended up displaying a smaller version that needed one to click to see the original size. Here's one at 1024x768 :)

    How did you solve it.

    I'm new to this forum and would like to know the best way to insert a photo into a post. I tried previously but they ended up as thumbnail attachements.

    Do I have to upload the photos to my member gallery before I can insert them in a post?
