About me:

First camera was a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic - a gift from my father in the late 70's. He was a died-in-the-wool Olympus man and eventually I got an OM10 and then an OM2n. I bit the OMD bullet when I saw the E-M10. I knew I had to have it and have not been disappointed. I'm not a professional photographer - just a guy with a camera and an interest in capturing images.

  • This is amazing to me. I have never heard of that pro low light capture mode. That ISO 2000 image is outstanding. I've wanted an X30 forever and this might bump me over the edge.
  • Replied in Pretty good
    A couple thoughts on using legacy OM lenses on modern OMD cameras (1) They don't have the modern lens coatings that help reduce flare and other affects of shooting into the light. I have a 100/2.8 that ...
