About me:

Former Marine, former engineer at Douglas, McDonnell Douglas & Boeing for 39 years and in retirement enjoy hiking with my Rhodesian Ridgebacks & others. Enjoy taking photos on the hikes and since 1979 have had Olympus cameras (beginning with the RC 35). When Olympus gave up on the DSLR I began adding Pentax DSLRs which seemed to me a logical progression from what I have been used to and indeed that is as it proved.

While my K1 was at Precision being converted into a K1 Mark II, I acquired an Olympus OMD-EM5ii in my ongoing search to have on hand a good go-light kit. But then I learned that the EM1 was better at handling old Olympus glass; so I acquired one of those as well as some micro-4/3 glass. The IQ and EVF are better than I would have thought. However I typically alternate between my K1ii and my KP on hikes. I take the EM1 when I want to go light.
