Congrats on the camera. I just jumped off the deep end and bought a refurbished 75 f1.8. Even though I do primarily landscapes, this lens should be fun to force me into shooting new material.

Ha.

Or what's the joke about owning a boat? It's a hole in the water in which to throw your money? Ha, I know those people.

zig - good to see you around and congratulations on the EM-5, I like the image, great cape scene. I really am glad to have you back I have that print you made of my grand canyon pick proudly displayed in our living room, the cropped version I also framed and gave to my cousin who is rather fond of it.

It's a shame you didn't pick up the EM-1 or EM-10 as they have focus peaking which can make manual focusing a bit easier. There is a trick where you can use one of the art filters on the EM-5 to achieve similar highlighting of high contrast areas. If you're taking JPEG + RAW you'll get the art image in the JPEG but the RAW will remain unfiltered as it were. Petapixel did a decent write up of how to do it.
