Wish I could get this in the US. Epm2 + 17 is exactly what I'm shopping right now.
jlabate: One of the features that I liked about the original Pens was the option to set different aspect ratios, 1:1 being my favorite. I haven't seen those additional ratios listed in the specs in the new Pens. Do the new noes not have that ability anymore?
They are there
forpetessake: Can't wait to see the sibling rivalries on the m43 forum. Both E-P5 and E-M5 produce religious following, and true believers always zealously fight the infidels from another camp.
An appropriate post for someone with your handle (i.e. forpetessake)
BuckarooBanzai: What's the over/under point on the price point of the body only being $600? I say 1 year from now.
Price drop is the reason I held off the OMD for a while, but surprisingly the price has remained relatively high for Oly. I really think the latest tech in Oly is helping them support their prices. These are not just compact or good cameras any more, they are GREAT cameras. Oh, and the OMD and now EPL5 offer AMAZING control and customization.
WT21: Google is evil.
My response to someone wearing this will be simple. I will not talk to you while you are wearing them, or if they are in sight. Put them away first.
or maybe pull out my camera and start filming them, informing them I'm putting it up on YouTube entitled "Google Tool"
Google is evil.
Spent some time on his site: http://johnnytergo.com/ I think DPR might have in this article the worst of the lot.
I do wonder, though, if these kinds of "in your face" photogs will lead to legislative action against street shooters.
posted in wrong section. removed.
To be really superficial, I think the name "Cornell Capra" is pretty cool :)
WT21: Don't see any reason to come off my m43 kit based on this. I had the XE1 briefly and returned it. Glad I did. I loved the Fuji handling and styling, but the size, IQ and AF speed of m43 still bests it, IMO. And is a better compliment to my 6D.
@draschan: agreed. I love my EPL5 for size, but I would like a little better manual controls. I teeter on the edge of an OMD (had one before), but as m43 is meant to be my "compact" camera, I keep it small.@HowaboutRAW: I've used just about every m43 camera, and currently have an EPL5. Lenses currently are P14, O17/1.8, PL25 and P100-300 (and also lens cap lens). I have done a few pics at ISO6400, but not many. If I need high ISO, it's usually for action, and that's where the DSLR comes in, because you also need the focus speed. If you need ISO6400 on the Fuji, you are also doing MF, since the Fuji hunts terrible in low light.@ ManuelVilardeMacedo - the EP1 is a great cam. I'm hoping the EP5 has the new sensor and the old EPx aesthetic, though I would also love a shutter speed dial :)

I really like the pics, but I'm just not sure they are NYT front page material. Mostly stylistically, not quality wise.
WT21: Also note -- when Google bough Nik, they sent out an e-mail saying you needed to allow your account data to transfer to Google. If you said "no" then you likely don't get this deal.
The e-mail clearly said you have to transfer your data to receive any support. The e-mail I got confirming the transfer said
"By transferring your information and your previous history, you will continue to be eligible for support for your Nik Software products."

I bought the desktop app.
I do not at all care for Google. Simply cannot stand them.
abolit66: technology, shmenology, learn how to make a decent camera first, Fuji!
slower to focus using CDAF is not really 'focusing issues'
They're good cameras.
I deleted all my photos on picasaweb. Now I've got smugmug. Much better anyway, I pay for the service, and I don't feel like Big Brother is rolling me up into "Big Data" (though they probably still are) Really, can't stand Google.
JackM: 201 questions?? You are out of your mind! For that kind of time I expect to be paid a consulting fee.
15 minutes? Did you actually fill that out? 14 minutes, and I was only 1/4 of the way through. Unless, of course, you aren't actually thinking about your answers
201 questions? I started on it, got to question 20, then thought "how long is this thing"
Agree with Narnia -- life is too short. If I fill it out completely, you would OWE me an iPad, not just a chance to enter to win one, lol.
Let me know when you cut it down by about 75%.
