Re: Why was it successful?

Eric, two and a half years ago I bought a D3 with 85 F1.4 lens for portraits. Of course the D3 is a monster to handle, but the combo delivers.

I would buy a OM-D pro just to use my 14-35 and 35-100 lenses. I now have two E-5's so I would sell one to help finance the purchase.

I have been doing a lot of African American weddings and I find that the D3 has more dynamic range than the E-5. A very dark complected bride in a white dress is a challenge. I expect a 1-2 stop improvement in dynamic range in the new OM-D Pro.

Oh, on another note entirely, I just finished Michael Woodford's book, "Exposure" Give me your address in a private email and I will send to you for a good read.

My email is photographer6@verizon.net.
