Re: Spares for E5

Surprisingly at Luton Cameras. I had tried their website the day before and it was marked "withdrawn - no stock" but I decided to try the effect of a phone call, and somebody went into the store to...

Re: 10th Anniversary of Micro Four Thirds

I still use my E5 for specialist jobs and will continue to do so in spite of having both a full frame Canon and a PEN-F. In particular it handles the 70-300 well and I see no need to buy either a...
