So I am almost, an official :43: owner!

It's in town, so I should be getting it tomorrow!

I wanted a black, (and still have a black on order, which I'd better cancel :eek: ) but I snagged a blue one so I wouldn't have to wait. I prefer a darker body over the metallic gold.

I also managed to grab a Pana 20mm f1.7 when B&H had a short supply in stock, so I should soon be 'good-to-go' for the :43: times.

Can't wait to shoot :43:! :cloud-9-039:

I got a chance to put my hands on one today in the local Ritz store. I like the grip/feel better than the EP1, but I don't care for the back button layout. I also think it might get out of balance with a larger lens. I think you will enjoy the purchase however. If its anything like the EP1, it will be a fun camera for you!

I'm planning on picking one of these up once Amazon gets the black in stock and I sell my GF1. Let us know what you think of this little pen that could.

Would you believe???
The brown truck came today with the camera, but didn't leave it. My wife was in the back, putting on her make-up, and she heard the dogs barking at the door and the bell, but didn't go to the door to check it out!!!
So...now it's Tomorrow......!!!!:crying:

The shipper, Willoughbys, via Amazon, required a signature, (which I wasn't expecting), so......:crying:

Poor you! I knew they would need a signature but managed to be around or made sure someone else was... It is after all fairly pricey to leave "on the steps".

I feel terrible for you :frown: because I remember how excited I was when my new E-P2 was en route. So tomorrow you just can't go out or you must make your wife swear not to put on her makeup!:wink:

Well...She was alert to receive it today...And it sure looks nice.
Now to learn how it works, charge it up, and start shooting.
I prefer RAW, but I don't know what software currently converts it's raw version, so I suppose that I'll start out with jpg.
It came with a CD for Windows, but I use a MAC. So why no Mac version Olympus????

You know? I kind of like this blue color! It ain't half bad!!!

I thought it was supposed to come with RAW (ORF) conversion software made by Olympus? That would be absurd not to provide it if they didn't.:confused:

Congratulations CanonDude...you might even have to change your name soon.:biggrin:

If you get stuck with any software questions, here's a link to a specific Olympus Master software thread which currently resides in the Olympus camera forum: https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=1285 while all other software post processing and other, reside in the Software section down here: https://www.mu-43.com/forumdisplay.php?f=75

I'm sure Brian's "Quick Start" videos in "Image Works" could come in handy, too, though I realize your camera may have a completely differenet set up. Looking forward to hearing more and seeing more, too! There are quite a few E-PL1 owners around here and I really am looking forward to hearing about this new Olympus Pen version.

I'm looking forward to comments from E-PL1 owners about how easy (or not) it is to change aperture/shutter speeds using the buttons rather than a wheel/dial. I have trouble using the latter and this latest model could be just what I need.

BTW has anyone seen the EVF sold seperately yet? I've only seen it advertized as part of the E-P2 package.

Enjoy your camera, Paul. :smile:

There should be a Mac version of olympus' raw software in there.
No. Only one CD came with the camera and it is marked Windows, and that is what it is.

I just downloaded a Mac app from the Olympus website called 'Olympus Master 2'. Hopefully that will let me convert this camera's RAW files until Adobe and Aperture get updated for the E-PL1.
Aperture may already be able to see them since it has been updated for the E-P1 and 2, and since the PL1 uses the exact same sensor. ?????
