I believe large quantities of alcohol and a bath full of ice are useful.

Re: Olympus OMD EM5 Body Only - Black

Nice one John,let the fun commence.

I would have been interested with this and the lens from the original thread if not for this..Olympus confirms new camera body for Four Thirds lenses.
So congrats to both seller and buyer.

Thanks Keith,

The "new" camera interests me very much, but not on a personal level because:-

a) I know that I really won't be able to afford that one!

b) I might be wrong, but I'm expecting something a bit bigger than the E-M5 and for me the whole point of going MFT is to go small and light.

Re: Olympus OMD EM5 Body Only - Black

Went on a rare trip to the "town" today....Birmingham city centre that is.
Hoped to sneak off around to get some pics and hopefully check out photo gear in a few shops.
Took the 520 with the 14-42 on and 40-150 along with a couple of filters in a tiny pentax bag. Travelling light I thought......after about 4-5 hours I found out I wasn't...neck and back playing up now.
So I might have to change plans to go for a giant E7....

In the shops I wanted to find some Oly stuff ...at least the EM5 to see how big/small it really is.......Currys/PCWorld and Jessops had a great collection (surprised me) but apart from Pens there was nowt to look at.......Is it the shops NOT stocking OLY or OLY not letting them...I don't understand it.

Bad thing was seeing all the Canon and Nikon beasts on show.......

Keith

Good grief Charlie Brown, I mean John! What have you done? Oh well, we only live once so I hope you really enjoy it. It will certainly help you with it's great specs.

Keith I was thinking of going into Brum to look at a E-M5 so I am glad you posted as it saved me a journey.

Unless of course I decide to visit Gas Street Basin with my little Pen kit to take a few snaps.

Re: Olympus OMD EM5 Body Only - Black

Jessops have a few in the London stores... I had a very brief play yesterday, not long enough to take it all in, but I do like the styling. There were too many wires and alarms hanging off it and both staff and security lingering.

I like to see FS turn sold so quickly.
