Hi Moncho !

Glad to see your enjoying the E1 too ! I like both shots, although if it were possible to reduce the reflection of you in the glass of the door it would be even better. The second shot is a nice portrait.

Looking at the reflection - are you in the UK ? As I can see what looks like the old BT telephone boxes in the back.

I'm a new E1 owner like yourselve and have had mine now for 2 weeks and am very happy with it, although I didn't realise it still was on the v1.1 firmware which I upgraded to v1.4 yesterday. I don;t miss the video mode on my FZ10 as I never really used it but I do miss being able to shoot using the LCD and having a live histogram in the viewfinder. The only weakness in the camera for me is the current kit 14-45 for me its a wee bit too slow and soft but I have found its sweet spot at beign aroun f7-9. I've got a 14-54 f2.8-3.5 on order from cameta camera's so hopfeully I'll be able to test that out in a couple of weeks.

Although too late now, at the time of shooting that's what polarizers are for.

Hi Harj! that are Chemical bathrooms! jeje! I´m from Argentina!

I´v seen the reflections , I didn´t have the polarizer yet, and was a quiq shot not premeditated, my cuisn was walking from the elevator to the door and only managed to take tha camera, putit on the eye and shoot!

I´v seen you posting a LOT, and giving rounds, I´m gladd you deside for E-1!

I´m getting used not to have the live view! play around you´ll love to shot fast-live action! it´s exelent to catch "the moments"

Try the Om 50 it´s veeery light combo wth E-1 and MFocus it´s easy withit, I´v buyed the adaptor from ebay (

hope it help!!
