It's Fun-Fun-Fun Time.....E-M1 that is.

I've been snapping away for over 50 years, I've had loads of different cameras from loads of different makers, none have I had so much fun with or pleasure from as my E-M1, my Mamiya C330 came closest.

The camera has been with me for a week but today was the first time I was able to put it through it's paces.

I'm over the moon, it's put 'life' back into my photography, sadly due to all the 'fun' I got carried away and there is nothing I'm inclined to post here, but I'll take a second look.

What say other E-M1'ers ?

Re: It's Fun-Fun-Fun Time.....E-M1 that is.

We are in Devon for the weekend and this morning was the first time out proper with my Em1. I was using it with the 12-50 and the weight, or lack of, was a revelation after the e3 plus 12-60 although I still have the latter. Everything was a joy to use. Was using my legacy 135mm OM this afternoon and with focus peaking mf was really easy. I will definitely add to my OM glass collection. They look good on the em 1 as well. I did get a lock up though :-(
