Vacation photos (E-3/12-60/50-200), and some crying..
Aug 6, 2012

I really like those two lenses, both f2.8 at wide end and covering from 24-400 mm (equiv.). Optically - I don't need anything better. Unfortunatelly, after I got home I discovered that many of my images were front focused :(. So later this week I'll send my E-3 to calibration (again), and I think this will be my last attempt to stay with Olympus.

When talking about CaNikon and other brands many ppl here say (including myself) that one of the strongest chain in the camera system are the lenses and with Olympus we are lucky to have some of the best lenses available. While that may be true a simple fact is that no lens can save the image if the AF system is unreliable or inconstant. I'm a simple guy and I don't need more than 10-12 Mp and iso above 1600; DR of the E-3 is good enough for me (especially with LR4) - but I need a reliable and accurate AF system and in that area Olympus is keeps disappointing me, with every body that I own/ed.

A Photokina may be interesting this year and I will look at what others have to offer.

Ok enough crying, images from the vacation are in reply (those without focus issues )
