A Thing of Beauty... (u4/3 gearheads only)

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Post pictures of your beautiful u4/3 gear on this thread so we can admire your good taste.

Oly e-pl2 + Panasonic 20/1.7

Re: A Thing of Beauty... (u4/3 gearheads only)

I don't appear to have bought into the whole "micro" thing.

GH2+11-22+the cheapest bubble level I could find on ebay, and it works quite well.

GH2+18-50+Metz 48

(I don't have that lens anymore, traded in for a 14-54 f/2.8-3.5 II)

By the way, Uncle Frank: I always did think the E-PL2 was the best looking PEN design. They should have stuck with it.

Very nice and discrete combination.
I do like small setups
I had better not say anything about mega zooms and flashes.

Well it wasn't taken to show the body, but what you can stuff into Olympus Slim Bag M !

I love the white E-P3 and would be very happy to trade my black G3 against a white one, alas the white one isn't available in all countries and I couldn't get one here.

Well, I am afraid I have to agree that this lens is pretty good looking, especially on the right MFT camera. And you know how much it pains me to admit that.

Re: A Thing of Beauty... (u4/3 gearheads only)

This is my little baby. I'm working on providing a nice smooth servo zoom lens to the GH2 for more polished video. I've already powered the lens and tested it. More information to be posted here http://TechThoughts.org as the project progresses.

I find this combo very well balanced..

The tripod is just for the shot. It's well balanced and ideal for handheld street stuff even on my e-pm1
