New camera day !

Everyones favourite day today for me - new camera time !

It was a tough choice between the Fuji EV-1 and the OMD but i went for the OMD EM10 in the end !

Still can't believe how tiny it is - I almost can't take it seriously !!

Anyway my first Olympus camera for a long long time so i thought id seek out some expert help

Looking forward to picking your brains !

cheers !
