Can I echo that and Ulfric, I remember back at the meet up in May you were unsure about keeping the Pen! Obviously you made the right choice

Re: FTU and e-group photo competition winners revealed

I've been too busy to notice this thread for a couple of days, so ...

Thanks!

( Hey Jim, it looks a bit different now ... I 'modified' my e-P1 with a new OVf and thumb-thing.)

Re: FTU and e-group photo competition winners revealed

I'm completely gobsmacked to find out I was the winner in the dslr group, and even more so after seeing the shortlisted entries, it could of been any 1 of us, I certainly wouldn't of wanted the tough task of picking a winner thats for sure.
congratulations and good luck for the future to all who made the shortlist.
best wishes for the new year to all my fellow four thirds users!

Re: FTU and e-group photo competition winners revealed

A big thank you to Ian and Olympus.
Today (after a car-chase ... sortof) I received my lovely prize ;
Brown e-pM1 & two silver lenses.
This is the first camera I've had that deals admirably with energy-saving lightbulbs and gives a decent colour balance, absolutely brilliant!
Plus, although tortuous, the focus on my 4/3rds 14-54MkI is truly excellent.
And an orange focus-light! And 5 fps! And wierdly better low-light exposure than my e-pL1.
I have some kit-lens tests to do now that I've got ... well, too many of the little things.
Thanks again.

The problem is that Olympus are rather busy at the moment! The book productions, which will be done in-house by Olympus designers, has not been forgotten - honest! But yes, I am sorry for this delay.
