Brian, does it take a better image if you paid for it rather than got it as a freebie?
I should blooming well hope so!
If you ever wished your OM-D had focus peaking, here is something that might interest you
The OMD already has it, but its deactivated for now.
But if you need focus peaking, its probably time to give up photography
Spent some time at my favourite river site this morning, and fyi, the batteries don't last very long at -14C ambient temp. I also learnt that I freeze much quicker than I used to. Keep them in an inside pocket next to your body; you can even restore a bit of useful life in them with some body heat. For all those who joked about my 5 batteries, this is why I have them.
Has anyone got the macro close up lens that fits the 14-42 II, I understand the 14-42 and 45mm share the same bayonet fitting, the 14-42 hood will fit the 45mm so the close up lens should fit as well.
Watch yer back!

I spent a few hours at the Hawk Conservancy Trust today experimenting to see if I could use CAF mode to get better shots of birds of prey in flight.
Under the rather poor conditions that prevailed (it looked "bright" but I was needing ISO800 and f 5.6 - f7.3 to get sensible shutter speeds of around 1/800th +/- when ideally I would prefer ISO200 with f8 and speeds of 1/1600th +) I couldn't get CAF to provide anything of use.
SAF + M on the other hand allowed me to get a fairly good "keeper" rate although because of the aforementioned poor light + the fact that I shot in .JPG (not RAW as usual - all part of the experiement) the image quality is not so hot (but the focus is good even with fast moving birds), I was shooting with 9 point focus grid and centre weighted exposure metering at 4fps.
So long as the first shot was focused it seemed to hold focus between shots quite well (but didn't correct an initially misfocused shot in subsequent frames)
Here are a few after much cropping and post-processing (as I said - IQ is not good )

I found this nice deal on the 35-100, 30% cash back.
seems a bit early in the cycle for Panasonic to be giving such a large cash back, I wonder if sales are below target?
They just want to sell more GH3`s

The offer was limited to the first 50 applicants.....I think you'll find they've all gone !
