Hi Bob,

That comment sure does put some pressure on me.

Actually, I'm looking forward to spending a fair amount of time with Greg on Sunday and Monday ( if he doesn't get sick of me) showing him the places I think make this my favorite part of the world. I hope the weather cooperates as the early forecast for Monday is not all that great.

But we'll think of something.

Anyways, Greg,if you should be able to break away from your classes long enough to read this, be aware that the Pan Am bicycle race to Provincetown will be held this Saturday and Sunday. There will be literally thousands of participants in the race. As a result, the roads will be clogged with racers &
tourists.

Zig

Sounds like I might need an alternate route!

Back to class...

Greg, you said, "Sounds like I might need an alternate route!"

....how about getting a bicycle and spandex then follow the flow, just fall out when ya see Zig waving to 'park it here'.

Zig would not have a problem finding me. He would just needed too listen for the guy who passed out and died on the route, go there and it would be me.

Right now, my mind is awash in the world of Puts, Calls, subordinated debentures and modern portfolio theory. In other words, I'm pulling' out what's left of my hair at the moment.

Stuffs get on the sensor whether you like it or not. As long as you keep changing lens it is going to happen. I am glad that you had a backup camera with you. It happened to me 2 weeks ago when I was out shooting with my Samsung NX100.
Here is how I clean the sensor on my cameras:

Picked my E-M5 up today. Turned out, they had to replace the entire sensor unit. How about that. All under warranty, of course. Arlington Camera did not even charge me for shipping it to Olympus.

Glad to hear that Oly took care of the problem properly.

But it does bring up a little concern as to what exactly happened.
