Yes, but Canon is for the undiscerning masses, we're talking Olympus here!

Just because Fiat only provide an emergency get-you-home spare wheel doesn't mean I wouldn't expect a prpoer one with a Rolls Royce!

Apparently you inflate the clock, gets rid of that horrible ticking sound.

Looking at the photo of all those cameras, I think somebody has already nicked the lens hood from the one in the middle.

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

Hi Ian and thank you for the play line of your visit which I found to be very informative. It has more or less defined what i will do. I expect a call from my provider to tell me that they are in stock and then I will have a look and feel of this new camera...probably buy it if it is not bigger or heavier that the E-P3 and I am sure you could answer that question for me when you get a chance.

The E-P3 is not as tall because of the SLR-style hump on the E-M5 (which contains the EVF and IS sensors) but in reality with the grip off it's very similar in size and weight. Maybe you should pre-order in order to net the free grip?

Thank you Ian for your response. In Canada there are no freebies for pre-orders because our supply chain is in the USA and we are dictated by them as what we can or cannot do. For us...it is always the elephant in the room!!
Further, your two sites are the best on the internet and as I always say "only the Brits" can do it right...all others follow!!

I subconsciously considered you to be a Brit (please don't feel offended!).

And you are far too kind with your praise

Ian, by way of my Cockney Mother and Aberdonian Father I guess that makes me somewhat of a Brit!!
