E-M5 and a Ski Ascent of Quartzite Peak

Took the E-M5 + 12-50mm out for it's first field expedition yesterday. I really don't know why there isn't more love for the 12-50! I love that lens! The focal length is perfect and the balance on the E-M5 (especially with the landscape grip) is very optimal.

Overall I was impressed. There were several things like bumping the focus points too often, some missed AF (sometimes the shutter wouldn't fire for me, probably user error) and the noise the camera makes is quite noticeable, I just don't care about it. I could clearly hear it every time I turned the camera on though - and that's outside on the side of a mountain, so it's definitely there.

These are all OOC jpegs with maybe a bump in exposure and conversion to B&W. I must say I still love the Oly colors! I find that with snow you should turn off the "warming" effect, which I did for these.
