Another Oly update just posted by Reuters. Very interesting, the way these losses were actually from years ago that had been shifted off-books to other entities and tried to cover by now booking them as supposedly "advisory fees".

Just seen on another board. The image was a REALLY good image of a bluejay.

"Critic: Very good image but I detect some motion blur.

Photog: You probably do. You are aware that these things move, aren't you?"

Default Come on!!

So, I come down with a mild case of "pink eye" and go to Wally World to get some "stuff" for it. Now, mind you, I don't see all that well close-up anyway and couple that with pink eye and it's almost total far-sightedness. ANYWAYS, here's the directions I get in the box.



No kidding!!

........and it is a fine photo too which supports what I always say, "that old camera you may have is as good today as it was then". It's why I keep my E-300 ready, I used it quite a lot this past summer along side the E-3, actually carrying both at the same time on several occasions.
