Re: Might be of interest to E-1 fans

I've found an E-1 and E-500 bodies for $250 CDN for the pair. If they're still listed next weekend I may make an offer.

Re: Might be of interest to E-1 fans

Very interesting article, I recall looking at the same camera & for the exact same reasons decided to stay with Canon, now almost switched entirely to OM-D EM1 & 5 even if I haven't sold all my gear haven't used the Canon now for 14 months.

Re: Might be of interest to E-1 fans

Here's a very dull photograph that surprised me in how the E-1 could handle the shadows behind the lights (more or less) as well as the sunlight out the windows.
With the 9-18, I think at 9mm


And a close up from today, using the 14-54mk1


Both photos are just quickies, but I hope encourage folks who haven't, to give the E-1 a try

Re: Might be of interest to E-1 fans

Nice flyin' machines! Do you have the old version 40-150? And if so, do you like it? Am thinking of getting one as they're so cheap, for the brighter aperture.

Re: Might be of interest to E-1 fans

Ian's article in AP about old Pentax DSLR may interest those of you with an E-1 bout how much the latest software can help.
