    As some of you are probably aware, after two years of trying I've finally managed to kill my poor abused GH2. So with an EM5 on it's way I thought it'd be a good time to go through my archives and collate 10 of my favourite GH2 shots - these aren't necessarily the 'best', but the ones that speak to me personally as the documenter.

    Having shot about 50,000 files with the little beast, selecting 10 is no easy task, and if I did it again tomorrow it'd probably be another 10, but here's trying :wink:

    Due to me being slack I'm still yet to upload most of my shots from 5 months of travel last winter, so unfortunately that work it missing from this list...

    Bokeh - SMC Pentax-M 50/f1.4

    Pete on the incredibly exposed 'Southern Traverse' of the Eastern Arthur Range - Lumix 20/f1.7

    Ancient Myrtle Beech forest - CV Nokton 25mm

    Jenneret Beach - m.ZD 12mm

    Nice in memoriam. All are nice, #9 is my favourite. Did you do something special to kill off your GH2? :smile:

    I *think* I got it a little wet, but considering how hard I've flogged it who knows :confused:

    Sorry to hear about your loss. How wet did you get it for it to fail?

    Not very actually. It just been for a swim and had it hanging over my shoulder, so would've only been a few drops. I've had it wetter before...
