Coals to Newcastle - taking my EM1 MkII back to Japan!

I have just returned from a 3 week trip to Japan with SWMBO.

Since I was ostensibly on holiday with my wife, it was not primarily a photography driven trip and I was dragged - sorry, went enthusiastically - along to a number of things that were really far too touristy for my personal taste and photographic intent.

However, I managed some reasonable images and the camera performed well. Battery life was never an issue (I had two with me) although I do wish Olympus would take a leaf from the mobile phone makers and come up with Fastcharge batteries - it takes FAR too long to charge such small units.

AF was generally good but less than reliable in poor light, on a couple of occasions actually failing to lock altogether. I tried setting a limit on the AF distances but that made little difference.
