1st anniversary of E-1 ownership

Just realised that I've just passed one year of owning an E-1. I bought it on Ebay complete with HLD-2 grip, FL20 flash and 14-45 lens for 250.

This is one of the first photos I took on the day it arrived, 4 December 2009.


Still loving it a year on.

And I understand why! Lovely portrait of a best friend.

Super shot. I too purchased an E-1 on E Bay last month and my initial impressions are very favourable indeed!

Re: 1st anniversary of E-1 ownership

My wife is very keen to adopt a Greyhound. Perhaps you could PM with any thoughts? I'd be very grateful.

With regard to the E-1. They must be one of the great DSLR bargains at present. Bodies typically go for circa 130 and sometimes less! Modesty prevents me from divulging my own personal purchase details If anyone doubts the wisdom of buying one, don't hesitate!

Dave, sure will, they make excellent pets. Please excuse any delay in sending a PM though - I have an early start tomorrow and the prospect of a very long day.
