Yes, I did, with the mk1 lens but its wasn't as clear and detailed as this (that's not to say it was poor by any means )
You've a good memory Mike, its one of my standard test shots to check air quality and lens quality (one of these days I must go back over the years and do a comparison of all the lenses I have tested in this way )

Just found this shot, straight from camera, 100% crop of the eye of a young Stag (Sitka Deer) at Ashurst Owl and Otter Centre.
Shot using ISO1600 (rather poor light), f3.5 (Panasonic 35-100 f2.8) f3.5 for 1/500th sec hand-held
from the JPG with no additional PP in LR5.3
an even better version, from a much closer shot a few seconds later, resized to 1000pix from 1800 x 1500 (approx)
Still straight out of camera but very slight post sharpening after resizing down (same settings, I just moved closer)
looks like a different colour balance?
Odd, I had it in AWB, maybe getting closer changed the light?
I know Brian (and others) have switched to the E-M5 from using full frame and other DSLRs when the original OM-D E-M5 came out, but has anyone who has bought the new OM-D E-M1 decided to switch to it from a DSLR (full-frame or other)?
Still undecided on that one Josh. I traded in my DX Nikon for an E-M5 also, but love my Full Frame Nikon.
All of a sudden there are lots and lots of EM5`s showing up second hand

And a lot of other mirrorless cameras too
No too many Panasonic GH3's though... it's a sign of a good camera when they are not on the second hand market. No doubt the myriad of E-M5's becoming available is own to release of the E-M1 rather than a slight on their capability.
I suspect there may be more GH2s in the same way that there are more EM-5s, as users upgrade their camera bodies.
I've not seen much evidence in response to Josh's question about people changing to DSLR from m4/3rds here or elsewhere on the web, its mostly about people coming over from the likes of Nikon and canon and nearly always in an attempt to reduce weight but maintain image quality and shooting capability
When the EM5 arrived there were lots of E3`s and E5`s appearing second hand, I never quite understood the argument that 4/3 was being abandoned, it was simply progress and the system maturing.
I moved over to M4/3 three years ago but hung on to my DSLR until I`d bought the EM5, it might be a hard pill for some but lots and lots have moved over from Canon and Nikon DSLR`s users with the arrival of the EM5 and there will probably be even more changes once the EM1 becomes established.
I see that the Luminous Landscape website has awarded the Olympus OM-D E-M1 as the Best New Camera Of 2013.
I guess you already knew that
But still may be worth a read on this gloomy, wet & windy day ( well it is where I am )
Foul isn't it Jeff, I had read the article, it amused me that he thinks its made of Titanium but otherwise I had to agree with what he said
For me, the EM series has brought real enjoyment back into my photography, the EM-1 in particular is an absolute pleasure to use
I see the price has dropped a smidgeon (about £100). Every little drop increases temptation!

There is a tendency for higher numbers of Panasonic camera`s in the second hand market with far fewer Olympus, I have no idea why.
