The owner of this space have also been blessed to review the E-5. He is also another unknown photographer and till today, he still shots with that E-500 and 35mm..He only recently upgraded to a 50mm.
Morning,

thanks for the info and the new link. Again, another fine example of excellent macro work. I have tried macro a few times and found it to be pretty difficult to get ant decent pics. Having seen the work on here and in these links, along with the techniques descibed, I feel I should have another go sometime soon.

cheers

Kelvin

Love the dramatic tone art filter, that wuld save me a lot of PP! Shame I can't justify the extra 1500 to get my hands on it!

Robin Wong has now published a summary of his trial of the E-5 on his blog, with more great pictures including extensive use of the damatic tone art filter. Just click on the link in the OP then click "Home" on Robin's blog.

Re: Wow! E-5 pics you must see!

Don't jump at it so fast. As with previous launches, a couple of months will see interesting packages and bundles. And if you can wait a year or 2, then discounts. As for me, I will wait for a new PEN. The E-PL1 is serving me well for now.
