Default ...giggle! giggle!

...that is all, just giggle! giggle!

I am tickled about how things are. The bathroom project is finished, this weekend is taken with birthday dinners, next weekend is taken with mine and Bonnie's "Golden" one on the 15th.
______________

Arlington Camera (our local store) called this afternoon; guess what I brought home from AC.

tickled, tickled & tickled

.....it is! PLUS the VF-2 works too!

I have been just looking at it and tripping the shutter with the mini-flash around the house. Can't wait til daylight.

The FT lenses focus much faster and the hand balance is terrific with them. The grip is 'oh so nice'

I did buy an extra battery expecting an electrical contact requirement in the camera but that is not necessary...... just a battery in the grip works fine.

Wi-Fi from my iPhone works like a charm... change MODE, AP, SH, ISO, EV etc, can write file to phone then share on Facebook, twitter whatever...... pretty neat, fun & useful. I will likely carry my 'gorilla pod' more now too, the phone is easier & quicker to use than the wire.

The photo shows where the 'dusty' 14-42 ranks in priority..... just pulled it from a bag and hooked it on, the little lens doesn't get much love and the 9-18 shows the wear it has seen with its 'much' love.

This is going to be fun, but learning the menu settings is about the same fun as always (NOT).

BTW, the hardcopy manual is even more worthless than any before it; it only shows the camera buttons/switches and refers to the 'digital' manual which is included on the CD with Viewer3.

I'm reckoning that I probably remove all the Oly Viewer apps I now have on the MAC and start over with Viewer3; after seeing if my 'OLD' cameras/lenses will be seen by the new app.

Now that looks sweet. Glad you got it.

(just FYI I got B&H Photo to buy my 14.42 for 85 bucks used . . . which is odd because that seems to be all they go for on the "market" so I don't see where they're getting money out of it)

That's a sexy and good looking camera..!!!Congratulations Bob.

Did you have chance to try the 50-200mm yet?

I would love to see some results from this combo.

A bathroom vanity. Was I close?

I believe the 50-200 Bob has is the original, non SWD version. He can correct me if I'm wrong.....I cannot remember but I believe he totes it around in a Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag and the 50-200 SWD and it's god-awful, big-tank-of-a-hood would never fit in that bag
