tgelston: I love mine but wonder if the 24-70 f/4 had been out. . if that would have satisfied me. My partner that I shoot weddings with says no, we need that extra stop but in my tests the 24-70 f/4 is right there hanging with it - I have a little video review up of the three 24 lenses https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzR_CjFs8g8
OM-D E-M5 with 45 f1.8 and 75 f1.8, fantastic optics and IQ. Olympus bringing out f2.8 zoom/s in a few months (hopefully 12-60) and possibly new E-M7??
DeFinitive: Just as I thought, no photos of the gulags, how controlled are these photos and then we see comments of "I'd love to go there"!
Maybe Iraq didn't have WMD but Nth Korea has gulags, as seen from satellite images. Have a read at "Escape From Camp 14", this will give you a better insight into Nth Korea.

I started with the 45 1.8 on my E-M5 and just recently added the 17 1.8 when visiting Hong Kong last week (US$485). I had been waiting many months to get my hands on it and decided against the panny 20 1.7. I'm very happy with my two lens set up at the moment but will definitely add one or both of the new Oly 2.8 zooms coming out later in the year.
My first impressions are that the 17 1.8 is not as sharp as the 45 1.8 but as others have mentioned, it's sharp enough. I really needed the wider FOV for a lot of the street shots and environmental portraits I like to take. The 20 1.7 die hards will defend that lens, I have used it on my E-M5 but I still decided to wait for the 17 1.8.
OM-D or X-E1, that is the question, can the X-E1 IS lenses match the IBIS of the OM-D, how about lens IQ compared to the new Oly MZ range?
Vitruvius: About 8 years ago 1200 line 15.4 inch screens were common. Back when they were used more for work than play. Then the market decided that everyone on the planet only used their laptop for watching movies and gaming so a couple years ago 1080 was about the most you could find besides the macbook pro. Last year I was looking desperatly for a higher res laptop PC and was told that the big three screen makers had stopping making screens for laptops over 1080. There is no laptop PC on the market with a 2nd gen quad core i7 and 1200 line screen other than the Mac book pro. It is really nice to see this shift to higher res again. I use other programs with lots of tool pallets and I don't want to lug a second screen around.
Do you think the 17" MBP is a good buy if you can find one? What is the best res of 17" MBP and is it a worthwhile photo editing tool?
