Sorry to pester you!
To be honest, it's not something that has crossed my mind and I have gone back to the camera specifically because you have raised the point. I can honestly say it is not a problem for me. I guess camera shop personnel get to handle a multitude of cameras and get to like a certain 'feel' - if this is not replicated in another camera, then maybe this is why they make the observation?

Thanks for the congratulations, John - I did put in my pre-order early but I am lucky that we live a short drive from SRS in Watford, so we were able to nip across and pick it up within hours of being notified that stock had arrived. In fact, StephenL was at the top of their list and I was second in line but he has had to await mail delivery! for me, for him, hehe!

The card reader that both Barrie and I use for all our downloads is the -

Kingston Media Reader - Card reader - 19 in 1 ( CF I, CF II, Memory Stick, MS PRO, MMC, SD, MS Duo, MS PRO Duo, miniSD, RS-MMC, MMCmobile, microSD, MMCmicro, SDHC, miniSDHC, MS Micro, microSDHC ) - Hi-Speed USB

It is quick and easy to use and inexpensive - 9.89 from Amazon.

Regards,
Ann1e

Re: My first OM-D E-M5 photo

Just got it. Also bought 12mm, 45mm and 17mm. I am so dead, as the modern parlance goes. I took this one on Jpeg, straight out of the camera. Just an excited snap

Congratulations on first posts...Ann1e and Jim!
When whoever has Jacobs order 160 gets their E-M5 then please let me know, because I have order 161 and it means mine will be on its way!

Just three hours to charge the battery - so if the light is with you when you retire for the evening -

I think it is a beautiful crafted product.

It's just arrived and the battery is charging! As soon as I saw it had reached Edinburgh depot I phoned the driver and he made it first drop.

Nice to see that cameras are beginning to arrive - in fact... I'm envious as I don't have one at the moment!
