The divorce is final...
Nov 4, 2013

I finally turned my 2 E-5s and 2 E-1s over to KEH at a PPA trade show here in Columbus, Ohio today. They gave me a fair deal on the equipment and I recommend them for buying and selling used Oly equipment. They were a pleasure to work with without all the drama of selling directly to folks you don't know or trust.

Anyone looking for a few classic, low-click, clean Oly cameras should check KEH in the near future. There are also a few lenses (2 50-200mm zooms, one SWD and one ED and a type I 14-54mm) and a bunch of accessories including a brand new HLD-4, grip straps, original Oly OM to 43rds adapter and T-ring adapter, etc., etc., etc.

Some of my favorite last Oly pics...

Thanks for looking,

In reply to redshifted, Nov 5, 2013

Are you staying in the Oly camp with an EM-1 or leaving for Canikon pastures.....?

It would seem, from what little I recall of reading your posts and viewing your lovely photo's over the years that you may need more than what the m4/3 unit can offer and I imagine you with a nice 5d3 and red rimmed lenses......

If you're leaving, good luck and great light, but I hope you're staying in the Oly camp as you have proven your ability to make Zuiko glass sing.

Thanks Jan,

I hope I have something worth sharing in that thread. One of the things that I always liked about this forum was that there was always a dedicated group of photogs that just enjoyed sharing pics.

I still get a kick out of sharing pics with people all over this shared planet - because of a camera brand forum  . it's a shame more folks don't have a sense of shared community and experience that we're lucky to have here.

Very well said.  The man behind the camera is much more important.  Hope Fuji works for you.

My sentiments exactly. Good shooting with the Fuji gear, it looks like a wonderful system. You're always welcome to come and post on the "Weekend Monochrome" thread, its brand-neutral.

Fuji..... very nice... those shots are all so good... especially the first, the sunset (so nice) and the last..... but all so good.  As has been said, so much about the person behind the lens and not the gear!

Good luck to you and enjoy the nice fuji cams, i'll have to look in at your great shots in the fuji forum, your shots do give inspiration for improvement and I truly enjoy seeing them!

Cheers

That's why I never ask what goes on behind closed doors. Too much information.

I always check the photo threads on a few forums and may pop some into the monochrome thread.
