Looking at the serial number list of potentially affected units, mine is a later body.

Greg, have admired your shots with the 75mm and the clarity this lens brings ie: to the tree branches in the third shot. Wonderful. But did you have to capture in such delightful detail and colour the cherry blossoms, the hyacinths and rhododendrons. It is still winter!!

Very nice shots Greg. You sure take a lot of pictures of your home and yard.

Who knows....maybe I'll have a chance to do some picture-taking of snow this next week in New Jersey

By the time you guys have all the blossoms to shoot, they'll probably be dying down here from the heat.

It won't be long now for this to be the norm here. I like seeing all the snow pictures, it reminds me of why I moved from Iowa to southern California for 15-yrs then to Texas for the past 40-yrs.

Greg the shots are great as usual, the 75mm is on my dream list, the 60mm is too so really no help deciding...

The statue is really nice, reminded me of something I was reading about Ryan Brenizer and the Brenizer technique. He's one of the top wedding photogs in the country currently and he recently posted a picture with some high praise for the 75mm f1.8 and the OM-D

http://www.flickr.com/photos/carpeic...in/photostream

He also wrote a full review here

http://www.ryanbrenizer.com/2012/08/...pus-om-d-e-m5/

More on the Brenizer method here http://www.flickr.com/groups/brenizermethod/

The statue would seem to make an ideal subject for this method and since you already have the lens for it I figured it might be of interest to you.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

on the bag front I am also struggling with the choice of lenses for my trip to Florida this spring, mainly I am trying to decide if I bring the 45-200mm in the bag or the 70-300mm. I can't fit both and I really can't fit the 70-300mm easily but I can make it work and I have basically stopped using the 45-200mm, having grown comfortable with the 70-300mm and fallen in love with it's IQ. I know I'll pack both but I am just questioning if I even need the 45-200mm anymore.

oh and ha you guys and your puny displays of snow!

Looks like those serial numbers are only for Japan and Europe, or did I miss something?

Whether Japan or Europe, and I think you are right, either means not here, for which I was glad.
