Nice one, Brian. That Canon looks kind of uncomfortable to hold. Is he wincing under the weight or was he suffering from trapped wind?

Know what you mean...I had spent the day lugging around a 50D and the f4 version of the same lens...as well as my Pen of course. That wont be happening much longer as the SLR is going on ebay shortly.

Seriously, it does seem a shame to part with a camera like that, but I suppose it's needed to finance other puchases. My E-3 will probably go much the same way, when I have the heart to part with it.

Its really tough, I don't need to until my pre-order of the OMD comes...but realistically I just don't use it from month to month whereas the Pen is used routinely.
