Shopping Trip

I had a trip to Christchurch yesterday to practice shooting with the Pen E-PL2 and caught this pair in the market there.

Re: Shopping Trip

Nice. I'd forgotten there is a market in Christchurch!

Re: Shopping Trip

Very crisp shot there, Gerry.

E-PL2 has had good reviews and I was tempted.

Christchurch UK, of course - not New Zealand's ill-fated sister city.

Re: Shopping Trip

Thanks for taking the time to look Mark. I think I am pleased with the E-PL2, but it is too early for me to say yet as I have stepped down from pro Nikon equipment to the Pen and a Lumix GH2, so a big learning curve in so many ways. And yes, Christchurch UK.

Re: Shopping Trip

I think when you get used to it you will become hooked on 4/3rds photography.
I see it at the most exciting development in digital photography, and that from a former Nikon user also.

Re: Shopping Trip

I think you are right, but yesterday I tried the Panasonic 100-300mm lens for the first time. The zoom ring is tight and I had focus problems. I will persevere!
