I've become so used to using cameras with fixed LCD.......... including videoing with the Canon 5D2 for long sessions, having any sort of movement is a bonus! I will probably forget it can move. Wink

Lol for members of this group

Anyone fancy having a meet sometime this year, play with each others kit/adapters/lenses.

This might interest a few none CSC users as well to get a general picture of how the system works, and the endless kit set ups with all the different bodies/adapters/lenses including legacy and the wireless flash system available for Pen/EM5 users

Just started taking photos in RAW, now that Adobe have kindly updated ACR. Here's a picture, of a tapestry, which I thought came out quite well.

So what, you may say! The "what" is that it was taken at ISO 25600. Certainly usable for smallish web photos. Smile

You can shoot in portrait mode without tilting the camera on its end.

Handholding with the new 5-axis IS works so well I don't think I could do any better with a tripod.

RAW format, converted in Olympus Viewer 2, which is a huge improvement over their old program. So far I like this one.

I can't believe how fast the AF is, even in dim light. I hope it works nearly as well with the 100-300mm I have on order.

Indeed. Definitely faster than my old Canon 5D Mk II, that's for sure!

I take it you've read reviews of the lens? (I haven't actually done so). The AF is as much down to the lens as the camera, methinks.

Methinks you're right, CB Smile

Hopefully where you are buying it from has a returns policy which will enable you to give the lens a good try out. Smile
