A Thing of Beauty... (u4/3 gearheads only)
Feb 13, 2012

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Post pictures of your beautiful u4/3 gear on this thread so we can admire your good taste.

Oly e-pl2 + Panasonic 20/1.7

I don't appear to have bought into the whole "micro" thing.

GH2+11-22+the cheapest bubble level I could find on ebay, and it works quite well.

GH2+18-50+Metz 48

(I don't have that lens anymore, traded in for a 14-54 f/2.8-3.5 II)

By the way, Uncle Frank: I always did think the E-PL2 was the best looking PEN design. They should have stuck with it.

Very nice and discrete combination.
I do like small setups
I had better not say anything about mega zooms and flashes.

Well it wasn't taken to show the body, but what you can stuff into Olympus Slim Bag M !

I love the white E-P3 and would be very happy to trade my black G3 against a white one, alas the white one isn't available in all countries and I couldn't get one here.

Well, I am afraid I have to agree that this lens is pretty good looking, especially on the right MFT camera. And you know how much it pains me to admit that.

This is my little baby. I'm working on providing a nice smooth servo zoom lens to the GH2 for more polished video. I've already powered the lens and tested it. More information to be posted here http://TechThoughts.org as the project progresses.

The tripod is just for the shot. It's well balanced and ideal for handheld street stuff even on my e-pm1
