i took these yesterday using the 55-200mm lens that came with the camera. i am getting a 28-300mm asap. i don't like the 55mm end nor do i like the loss of light. that said, i am happy with the camera so far.

i find the ovf to be not as good as the pentax but it is usable. i like that the ovf/live-view toggle is on the camera body and very easy to switch back and forth, which i did. this pic was taken at some distance and cropped for posting.

i took this pic in my house using the flash. i am not good with flash and i rarely use it. otherwise these blooms seem to leap off the screen. more thoughts to follow . . . as i learn the camera.

Thanks for posting, and get us informed of your progress with it. That first image is not bad for ISO 800.

most of my pics are taken after 5:30 p.m. so i usually have to do a little noise reduction on them . . . not that there was a lot of noice to reduce. i have to get used to the camera . . . and remember all of my photo schooling. :-)

Jim, how do you read the exif data in these pictures?

I use an image editor in Linux that tells me a lot of info, as well a cross platform browser utility.

Here is a free EXIF reader that works in Windows:

That raises another question.
Are you downloading the picture from the forum and then reading it?
That's what I had to do and then I looked at it in fsviewer (Fastone) and saw the data.
