Why Terry Lane kept his E-M1 Mk II.

When you have far too many cameras & you only want to keep one.

Terry Lane a past columnist for the Age (Sydney) newspaper talks about his past task on reviewing digital cameras, resulting in buying several over time but then deciding to reduce to just one. This is his story (some may find it a little less than riveting).

I watched it earlier today. I liked his style and his precise delivery of what he wished to convey.

Re: Why Terry Lane kept his E-M1 Mk II.

lovely descriptive story about his camera needs, I also use the mk2 and I think its the best oly camera since the original om which I still have.no camera is perfect there are always compromises and the small sensor will never beat a large one but its very close now and I can live with difference.

That's great because I don't think everybody liked his style.

Good to hear (read). I love my Mk II as well & am reticent to use the Mk I when I need to use two lenses without swapping, as the Mk II just performs so well.
