Zig,

A convincing argument for the epl-1 is you need to pack way less weight. Camera and zoom on shoulder, little lens in pocket or small bag ie purse. Presto nothing else to lug around.

Hi Ted,

thank you. I also like 3 a lot probably because, with the E-510 I would have had fun trying to reproduce that shot. I actually took 2 shots of that scene. In the first shot, I actually used a little exp.comp. then in the 2nd, I let the camera set the exposure. Wouldn't you know, the camera did a better job.

BTW, that's an actual room from Frank Lloyd Wright's home. It was dismantled and set up in the Met. Everything is 100% authentic.
The Met is a just seriously great place to go to. They have such a wide variety of exhibits.

Actually you can spend a whole day at the Met, and not see everything. Kinda like the louvre in paris. It can be a multiple day trip.

To bad they are starting to charge a high admission do to bad management. It uses to be free, and all they asked for were donation. Because of all the endowments they uses to have and taxes benefits.

Hah! That happens to me a lot. Should I apologize for giving you too much credit?

Hmmm. I'm from the Chicago area where FLW spent most of his life practicing, and I've always been attuned to his designs - no wonder I like that shot! But how did the New Yorkers steal that setup from Oak Park?

Boy, you guys are fast! I turn on the computer this evening, then go to this forum, and there are already 3 pages of comments to Zig's post which he just started today!

So my belated compliments to zig for the shots!

Hi Steven,

Just goes to show how much interest there is in the E-PL1 since most of the responses have to do with that little cam.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you.
