      Working on it. Recently douns out LR3 does not supports OM-D RAW and had to updated CS5. Plus my computer has either been at my friends's house or packed up for work.

      Why not convert to DNG? It's practically the same format...

      Nice Wrangler btw... Love that color

      That's what I'm thinking about until I upgrade. I've never done it before and haven't had time since yesterday evening.

      I convert all my E-5 and E-510 RAW files to DNG... I see no difference at all.

      I was thinking about this: If I had a really small case/bag for the OM-D, I could toss it in one side of my Dyna-lite case with one prime on it and one in the pouch and two Pocket Wizards in the other side. Talking about ultra-portable high powered lighting. I'd have two bags; one bag would be the camera and lights and the other would be the battery.

      That would be a fun shoot. Normally I have a 30-40lb bag with 5D MKII, lenses, triggers, 580EX II (it's just always in there) flash clamps, and other junk, a 20lb battery, my light bag, and my modifiers.

      I have to contact a local artists this weekend that I'm supposed to be doing some photos for. It's for some more local musician photos since that's who I'm marketing too. Maybe I'll try the ultra portable kit.

      I was going to post up a photo from this weekend, but it apparently didn't get uploaded and looks pretty crappy anyways. I was shooting the Lumix 20 f/1.7 at some bikes with a lot of chrome reflecting a lot of sun and there was CA everywhere in the viewfinder. I didn't see if it translated to the photo as it was a snap for the group I was with. I'll get it uploaded on Flickr and see what it looks like.

      I also traded my dad my E-P3 for his Canon XTI. He doesn't use the Canon much since it's pretty big when trying to fit it on a bike. I think it's sat on a shelf next to his computer for over a year without being used.

      good news, start saving...

      http://fourthirds-user.com/2012/08/o...rds_lenses.php

      Akira Watanabe, manager of Olympus Imaging's SLR planning department, confirmed today that the company is definitely working on a body to deliver the focusing performance expected by users of the Top Pro lens series like the ground breaking 90-250 f2 fixed aperture zoom.

      Watanabe has been delighted with the success of the OM-D which has pushed the boundaries of performance for system cameras but acknowledged that it did not deliver with the legacy high end lenses from the E-System. Whilst further information were not forthcoming, he was keen to emphasise that Olympus is actively developing a solution and will announce more details in due course.

      It would be great to see an "E-7" with the 16mp sensor that's in the OM-D!! Keep the OVF and add some better AF performance with an AF assist lamp built in, I will be SOLD!

      Well I finally took the plunge and ordered an EP1. The cyber-Monday deals on KEH made the combo of an EP1 and 17mm f/2.8 almost irresistible (check 'em: www.KEH.com), so I figured now was as good of a time as ever.

      It looks like I will be doing a lot more "real job" related travel to various slums and disreputable places around the world, so I've been pining for a small, discrete, high powered digital camera to document the street/environmental portraits/travel gnar etc I come across during my adventures to places where my D90 and a prime lens warrant a bit too much unwanted attention.

      I hope I can get accustomed to the P&S grip (arms out/tourist stance) and get the AF to suit my needs. I'm used to wandering the streets with 35mm manual SLRs and rangefinders so I'm guessing the slow AF speeds won't be too much of a problem..

      Here's to more photo gear

      enjoy, mine still gets the workout here and there. I've got the 20mm panny and it stays on the camera 90% of the time. The 17 is a solid lens but you may want to keep an eye out for the 20mm...

      have fun

      Does anyone have a place to check out presets for the E-300 for use in Lightroom? Perhaps the E-500 / 510 might share presets, but anything to get closer to what Viewer 2 gives me via RAW files would be appreciated, as I hate using the workflow in Viewer / Master but love using LR.

      Well I'm definitely in love with my EP1 and it hasn't really left my side since I first got my hands on it. My only real complaint is that it's so shiny. I wish a darker version was available the day I ordered it in an effort to "blend in" in a bit more when I'm shooting, but I guess you can't have it all.

      99% of the time I'm shooting Large Fine Monochrome JPEGs and loving the results straight from the camera, with the exception of some slight straightening/touch ups.

      So far it has put up with my daily commutes and a 15 hour drinking bout throughout NYC without even batting an eye.

      I've finally ordered an OM-D. After years of wanting a PEN but not being thoroughly pleased with each offering (EP had this but EPL had that, etc.), I think the OM-D is the camera I've been waiting for since I bought into the 4/3 system (though in m4/3 format...). Yeah, I'm late to the party but oh well. I'm sure it'll be like a camera from the future compared to my E-300.

      I got it with the two lens kit (odd enough, same as I started with my E-300 many years ago...) which comes with the 12-50 and 40-150. The 12-50 will be a walk-around staple and the 40-150 looks decent for times when a tele is needed, but of course the system seems to shine in its primes. The typical suggestions are the Pana 20mm, Oly 45mm and Oly 75mm. Is everyone pretty much in agreeance or is it worth looking at an Oly 17mm, or 12mm, or the Sigma offerings?

      Olympus is doing rebates. $100 on cameras and $150 on lenses up to 3 lenses. Makes me want to spend $1700 on the 12 f/2 and 75 f/1.8 so I can get $300 back in the mail.

      Thanks, I'm still really digging this thing

      I'm starting to really appreciate its internal image stabilization and I really like the 4:3 aspect ratio.

      I'm pretty disappointed with the FV-1 optical viewfinder though, but I didn't really read up on it before placing the order so I guess that's mostly my fault. I figured it would have some sort of "hot" communication with the camera via the hot shoe but it's a cold mount. I hate being completely blind in regards to exposure and focus confirmation but it is what it is.

      I love going down to DC for the people photography. I'll be in Baltimore this weekend. I may stop at the inner harbor to go take photos.

      The Inner Harbor is always a good time

      Feel free to give me a shout next time you come through DC

      Enjoying the E-M5 thus far, though I do wish the 12-50mm was a bit closer to my old 14-54mm in color, contrast and sharpness. And the LR4 profile still needs work, though a bit better after acquiring the Huelight profile. Still, it held up well during a little snowfall and trip to the arboretum, exactly the reason I got the kit (for smaller, weather-proof travel compared to my E-300).
