Toshi Terada (taken yesterday) - E-M5, ISO 800, accidentally shot at -1EV compensation but corrected back in Lightroom (using JPEG) - remember when ISO 800 was on the edge of acceptability?

An E-M5 for you, what colour would you like? OM-D E-M5 pre-production samples waiting to be distributed to journalists at the Amsterdam seminar.

Re: Hello from the OM-D E-M5 press seminar Amsterdam

Does the 12-50 come with the lenshood as standard?

Well, I like the black ones, and I like the silver ones. There's only one way to find out - FIGHT!

The black one looks much better in product photos, but in reality the silver one looks great in its own right and I chose one of those to use

My pre-order is for the silver, with the proviso that if they only have black, that will do!

It's almost always extra with Canon lenses. The 9-18 m.Zuiko, 12mm f/2, 14-42 m.Zuiko II, 45mm f/1.8 m.Zuiko, 14-150, 40-150, 75-300 - none have hoods as standard.

Nope, you've obviously not yet bought an Olympus Micro Four Thirds Lens.

Ian, here's some feedback for Toshi - we're not happy about having to pay an extra 30 - 40 for a cheap bit of plastic which shoud be provided with the lens anyway!
