One other diff e-3 vs e-30 is 10m vs 12m. I opped for the pixels over the weatherproofing.

I have not figured out the individual lense focus option. Maybe this weekend I'll tackle that?
And I'm just getting used to the 500..
Thanks for the info. Looking forward to some of your shots.

Olympus published an article on how to do that. It was on their web site for a while and then went into some sort of witness protection program. But I have a copy. I'd post it here but this forum doesn't have a Files section, so send me a PM with your email address and I'll send it to you.

Yep, that is a new one. Even Churchill talked about Yankee arrogance when they were over there saving the British and French bacon from Hitler. LOL

You two just can't see that the "perceived" arrogance is just a bravado brought about by people totally out of their depth in unfamiliar surroundings.

The comment "We saved your ass" is just blanket bravado. When all else fails, and you're totally lost and overwhelmed with the culture and the surroundings. Just feeling inferior! Just remind them of how you saved their ass.

Sure to impress people, put them in their places and make lasting friendships ..

Prolly better quit this now......

On a more serious note.
The tide of the war had just turned, with Stalingrad and El Alamein, followed by Kursk being pivotal battles. From then on the krauts were on the defense.

BUT, it would have been a long hard struggle possibly/Probably taking years, without the involvement of the US. Or it would still be communist Europe.

America did come in with along with arsenal of the West and it's fantastic industrial strength. Then the millions of troops and ultimate sacrifice of manpower.
For that, for a kid who was born before Hitler attacked Poland, I'll always be greatful.

It's fun to get a rise out of proper British gentlemen. No harm intended. LOL
