Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review Coming Soon

I have been using a GF1 since it first came out. It has served me well for over 5 years and has gone with me to several trips throughout the southern United States as well as several trips through Europe. I have toyed with the consideration of upgrading several times in the past, usually whenever the “next big thing” was announced but I could never manage to pull the trigger. Well folks, the time has come to set aside my trusty GF1 and jump on the Olympus OMD bandwagon. The beautifull E-M1 is making it’s way to me as I type this and I will be doing a review as soon as it get’s here. I will also be taking me on an extensive journey through the Mediterranean and I will upload some favorite shots sometime in July. Please keep an eye on MicroFourThirds.net to see what I think of this highly regarded camera.


Still Using a GF1

It’s way past time for an upgrade, but until then, my trusty GF1 is still my camera of choice. I tried using a Canon GX1 for a few days while on vacation but the range of interchangeable lenses with the micro four thirds format is hard to beat. My next camera, unless something better comes out, will be an Olympus OM-D E-M5. For now, it’s the GF1 and I still carry three lenses with me: The Panasonic 20mm pancake, a Minolta Rokkor 50mm Ff1.2, and a Panasonic 7-14mm wide angle lenses. I have found that these three lenses give me the flexibility I need, whether it’s landscapes (7-14mm), night photography (50mm or 20mm) or just street portraits (50mm) then I have a the lens for the job. Here are the most recent pics taken this summer using these three lenses while on vacation in Northern Europe:
