Re: EM-1 MARK II review

I'm breaking from the trend and have placed my order already

Reasons?

- I had the money put aside from sale of my remaining canon kit and profit from our annual exhibition sales
- the spec and actual changes such as the new sensor with 121 cross pdaf and higher frame rates are needed for my type of shooting
- I like shiny new toys
- I don't drink, smoke or go out with expensive young women and have minimal other financial commitments
- I'm losing a lot of my contemporaries and friends to stokes, cancer and the like and there is no guarantee that if I wait I will be here to buy at the "proper market price"

So, what the heck - I buying myself my new toy and if you promise not to be to critical of my efforts I may even tell you how I get on with it

I'm now waiting like a kid for his promised Christmas Present
