Don't judge a camera by reviews, but by it's potential.

It deserves a full watch.

If I can achieve anything like this with my incoming Pen-F then I'll be over the moon.

Yes, but do you, or do you not, use the Oxford comma?

I think the photos there owe more to his eye, his observation and composition, than to his equipment.

Yes, of course, but the equipment can have a big bearing on how you turn your vision into an image.

People at work often used to ask me what camera they should buy. I would tell them to get one they liked, because they were all good by then, and if they liked it more they would use it more. Seems that he likes the Pen-F!

I tried, but sadly I couldn't like it.

One was delivered this morning by Parcelforce from Wex at 09:30.
It was collected by Parcelforce at 14:30 for return to Wex.

PF were in the area.

I tried...Ho-Hum.

Crickey Dave - a couple of hours isn't really a fair trial.

Blimey, there must have been a fundamental deal breaker for you to decide that quickly!

I assume WEX will now have an 'open box' Pen F to sell off at a reduced price. At least somebody will gain from it.

Sounds like a world record to me. Have you been in touch with Guiness?
