Going in

Alright well I just couldn't wait anymore. I picked up the OMD today after much thought along w/ the lenses. The black/silver looks like my very first SLR the Pentax ZX-M...when life was in full manual mode and in film. They may look alike but whooboy they are very different. lol.

Futzing with the menu a bit and some shots from the backyard...I have a a bit of a learning curve here coming from my 7D. I'll have to figure out what all these settings are for. But I think the weirdest thing was the zoom since it's optical controlled by the ring, not some button on the body. It's a little weird at first. Maybe that's just me. Also the buttons are so tiny! the body is so tiny! Again, this was the point but something to get used to for sure.

Anyway, really looking forward to getting to know my new Olympus!

PS, I picked up the Oly 12-50mm & the 40-150mm + the Pany 20mm.
