...somewhere I lost what I was doing here (I took time away to put Christmas STUFF away).

So, today I took the 50-200 setup for an hour-long hike through one of my favorite city parks. What I came away with has convinced me that the 50-200 Type I is a good match to the E-P3 for my usage.

Here are a couple photos from this morning that caused me to smile.

I quite liked the last shot. Did you use spot metering? HDR?

Spot metering...that's the trick. I've been using spot metering almost 100% of the time in conjunction with AE lock. It works real good.

What diameter does the monopod need to be for the clamp to fit? I have a Manfrotto and there is a rubberized grip just below the 1/4" thread mount.

...the arm is not a clamp, it does fit any monopod. The arm is a Manfrotto product, it fits onto the monopod screw mount and of course the camera then fits onto the screw mount of the arm.

Ahhh, looks like this gadget would be useful to have.
