jhoff80: I really just wish there was an option like the Toshiba card and like the EyeFi card that just made the camera show as simple network attached storage, instead of needing a specific client like EyeFi, or having to do stuff through the browser like with the FlashAi card.
No, I have one, I'm fully aware how it works and of it's limitations.
That's what I'm referring to, that in order to get your images onto a local PC you need a client running. The client is pretty much junk, in my experience, especially if you have a ton of files on the card. It's very slow, and sometimes it's gotten completely stuck on me.
Like I said, I'd much rather have a card that just showed up as a network drive, I'll do everything manually.

Maybe it's just me, but I wonder if there would be less controversy if the Washington Post explained it better. To a layperson, their description that the photo is a composite of several images combined with computer software makes it sound like things were Photoshopped into the picture.
I wonder if a better description would have helped... something about how it's multiple images of the same scene combined to show a broader array of light, or something like that.
By mentioning multiple images but not saying that the images were just different exposures of the same scene, I can see how it would seem more controversial than it is.
I'm not even close to an expert, and the author is obviously way more talented than I am, but am I the only one who prefers the darker two images before processing and adding in all of the lights?
Again, I don't mean to sound rude at all. It's just my knowledge of photography is more technical and I need to learn more about the artistic side of it, so I really want to know why the brighter pictures, which to me seem too washed out, are better.
Of course they announced something newer, because I just purchased an EyeFi a couple of days ago.
jhoff80: Wow, I might be selling my 20mm and buying this for my E-PL2.
Yes, the Olympus kit lens retracts, but it does stick out pretty far still, making it difficult to put in a jacket pocket. I love the 20mm for its low-light performance, but otherwise a zoom lens is much more useful for me. I would just sell the Olympus kit lens to get this, but I don't think I'd get much money on that sale. :D
Or maybe just buy this and keep the 20mm too, depending on the funding available when this comes out. ;)
Yeah, I know it's a better lens, but at the same time, with it being a prime, it limits me so much that I rarely use it except for night shots indoors.
