Re: Former Olympus & current K-5 owners-a few questions

I picked up the K-5 with the 18-55 kit just before Christmas and the 16-50 on the 24th. The 16-50 seemed like it did not want to focus lock but I thought I was doing something wrong. K-5 also had the stains and some front focus so I sent back the K-5 and got a body only.

Then I got the Sigma 8-16 and used the 16-50 with manual focus in some low light situations. I just shot a couple of real estate listings with the 8-16 and my Olympus gear is all packed and ready to go on ebay at 1pm tomorrow. E-3, E-330, 12-60, 70-300, 50 macro, FL50.

In spite of the fact that the 16-50 is also packed and getting sent for repair there is just no comparison between the K-5 and the E-3 for me. I knew the ISO would be better but I didn't realize that the dynamic range difference would mean my interior strobe workflow would be so much better.
