Title says it all and I have to say he thoroughly deserves it http://robinwong.blogspot.com/

His excellent 'from a user perspective review' went along way to helping me decide to go for one :)

I read his blog on the E5 and saw some of his fantastic shots whilst the E5 was first launched.

Well done to Olympus for supporting its supporters. He deserved the E5.

He deserved it. I'll continue to visit his blog to see some more fantastic images from his new camera.

Olympus gave him a E-5 body only but left out the lens. How is he going to give more fantastic photographs when he only have that kit lenses and 50mm in his bag? Olympus should have given him a lens with a body. Even that 14-54 would have been great. The amount of attention he gathered from his review is worth many times over.

Am I asking too much? :rolleyes:

I'm sure something like the 12-60 would be next on his list.
Mind you he does have a 11-22 and the 50f/2 (as you mentioned) both are stunning lenses and the 40-150 is not half bad lets face it ;)

Although the 40-150 is not half bad I just cannot see the point of using anything less than HG glass with an E-5 (except legacy stuff, which is generally all about fun really).

Forgot..he does have that 11-22 . A very used and very battered unit.

No, Olympus have not indicated any 12-60 going his way.:o

So I'm using my legacy 350mm for fun despite it out resolving any of the 4/3 sensors I've tried it with yet.
