What a terrible picture.

Poor DR, the blues are way off, colors washed out, and blown highlights. It at least needs a reflector on the right side to even out the harsh shadows.

I thought the same thing...

... WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED.

If so, hit the STOP button!

'When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at
his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,
and I know it was not that blow that did it,
but all that had gone before.'
-- Jacob Riis (1849 - 1914)

Stay Well,

That's from a great movie...

Takeshi Kitano's "Sonatine", if I'm not mistaken. On a postive note - he doesn't actually shoot himself in that scene. One a more worrying note, well, I don't want to spoil that excellent movie...

Oh ! That's what you mean by "getting more bang for the buck" ?

E-1 (sold 2009; should have keep it); E-520 (since December 2008!) E-410 (since June 2007) E-500 (2006- lost 2007); zuiki 14-54 (sold 2009); zuiko 14-42 (excellent, sold 2009); zuiko 14-45 (on the E410); zuiko 40-150Mk1 (excellent); zuiko 40-150 Mk2 (sold); zuiko 50 f2 macro (sold 2009, hoping for SWD version, should have keep it); Zuiko 70-300 (sold 2010, fun for portrait and compressed perspective, not fast enough for birding); flash FL-36 (so-so but light and useful)

I hope to be able to get a E-3 + 14-54 mk2 in late 2010 or early 2011, for less than $1000

Re: Oly 4/3 team getting ready for the big announcement

LOL, best post of the day! I'm sick of all the speculations, just wait for the announcement. However, if the "leaks" on the E-5 are correct, that OP photo would be the correct course of action for them to take.

That's because it was taken with a nikon

sorry it's late and since everyone else is brand bashing i thought i'd jump in. I don't actually feel that way. Just trying to keep the humour going.

Please don't tell my mother I work for Olympus.
