Hi Greg/Steven,

Thanks, I continue to marvel at the colors that the Pen cameras render. I've found that yellow shades as well as purples and reds very difficult to reproduce using digicams IMO. The EPL-1 does a really good job and usually, I don't have to adjust the colors when editing.

Here is a link to the official fourthirds website that lists all the available lenses for the 4/3 system. the 12-60mm 2.8-4.0 lens is the first on the list.

Hope that helps.

I understand.

Actually, your lens combination should cover you for just about all situations.
The Panny lens is outstanding and the 14-42mm is quite good.

I too have and use the 14-42mm kit lens. Mine is the original version that came with the E-PL1. I'm looking to replace it with the newer version as it accepts filters as well as the macro and wide angle add-on lenses that Olympus released not too long ago. But then, I start looking at the 14-150mm lens and think that's probably my better choice.

thanks again Zig. I had no idea what an expensive hobby this can be! your right though. I have 2 pretty good lens's now. You really need some sort of zoom on a camera.

Can't let this one go... This plant is actually called Monarda or commonly Bee Balm. Butterflys and hummingbirds are the usual reason for adding it to ones garden. It is a prolific self seeder so it can rapidly spread throughout your garden. This year we have some that have developed a double head -- have not seen that before.

pics 1, 2, 4 were taken with the E-PL1 and a Micro-Nikkor 55mm, and pic 3 with the kit lens (version 1)

Thanks for correcting me on the name. And, for the add'l photos.

It is a most prolific spreading plant. My friend gave me 3 of them last year. This summer we have about a dozen.
