Re: Are they really worth getting ?

I was so unimpressed with my samples of the original 14-54 and 50-200 I borrowed a Canon setup for a month. Some of you know how well that went.

My 12-60 and 50-200 SWD are never going to leave my kit.

Well, there's at least two folks on here selling the original 50-200mm which would fit the spare body nicely.
You wouldn't have to swap lenses in the rain that way.

You think I'd want to go out in the rain after last summer...?!

I love MJ0RZD saying in the signature area: "My greatest fear is after I am gone my wife will sell my 'toys' for what I told her I paid for them!" Amen!

Well, I guess many of us could have that fear ... but so what if we have enjoyed them to the full ...

Re: Are they really worth getting ?

There are three cameras that I fondle.
No, I'm not joking.
You know when you want to just fiddle with a camera? Yeah?
The E-1 is one of them.
I especially like the ke-chugg of the weathersealed card door.

The E1 is perfect for the colouration of that cow.... Actually the flutterby too....
