And yet, another happy E-M5 owner :-)

Last week I stopped by Precision Camera here in Austin to see what the E-M5 forecast looked like.

I was interested in getting the E-M5 with the 14-42mm kit lens. I went back and forth regarding whether to get the 12-50mm, but wanted to avoid the extra size. I don't shoot much video, and can't remember the last time I had to shoot in rainy weather with my Olympus 4/3 gear, so I opted to shave off a couple hundred and go with the 14-42mm. At the time, Precision didn't have any in stock, but Joel (the saleman) said he expected something by today. They did, however, have an HLD-6 grip set in stock, which I bought at that time.

After listing my E-PL2/14-42mm on eBay today, I thought I would call to see if there was any hope of getting one any time soon (I was fighting the urge to order one on line from Berger Brothers Camera, as they indicated they had one in stock, and Arlington Camera in Ft. Worth showed a black one with the 12-50mm in stock.) Anyway, I left a message for Joel to let me know and he called me a short time later and said, "Your timing is impeccable! I was going to call you to tell you that we didn't get one yet, but before I found time to call, we had one delivered -- it's here waiting for you!"

I'll spare everyone the ISO 3200 'Junk on the coffee table' test shots Tomorrow, I try to get out and shoot a few decent images, and of course the requisite photos of dogs and cats

By the way, the camera feels like a million to me with the grip set on it -- and the shutter sound is a thing of beauty!

God Bless,
