Failed to Resisit the Pressure of Temptation and Succumbed ... ...


I was fast becoming a photographic dinosaur. So yesterday at our local store, I succumbed!


My new OMD E-M5 Mkii, body only, the lens I bought (14-150mm f/4-5.6 Mkii) is on its way, should be here by Friday.
Meanwhile I've charged the battery and set the camera's date /time and had a general 'get to know you' session ...
it's the same OMD as Tina's but hers has the silver top retro look which I love, mine is all black
so when we are out 'n about in downtown Hanoi, we will know just which is who's!

Well hopefully this will give you back the joy for the skills you have.

Although I don't think I can take all the credit!

Brilliant Mark well done . That's a superb travelling package, you certainly wont regret it.
You are going to have an even better holiday now you can relax and enjoy it. I'm sure Tina will show you the ropes
Definitely looking forward to the posts.

I love the E-M5ii - one of the nicest-feeling cameras I've used.

The black verions takes far superior pictures. Just don't let Tina get the better of you.

Seriously, or you're just kidding me? Find that hard to believe, same specs.

I'll try keeping her as the underdog!
She's forgotten her password which is why she's so quiet.

8:10am this morning - Thanks all, lens didn't arrive at my PO Box but I had with me the Galaxy S8+. Most likely tomorrow.

8:10am Downtown Wang', Murphy Street

This is the town's main street looking south

Don't take me seriously, she's a mind of her own and irrepressible!
Passwords are a pain, photo hosting sites hardly require one, like putting a padlock and chain on a broom cupboard

You seem to start very early over there, like here to avoid the heat!

I saw this and thought of you....
