Reasons to be happy

Trying out what is hoped will become the solution to tog onwards and upwards. Taken with an xz-1 with vf-2 digital viewfinder.

Re: Reasons to be happy

Wally, these are so beautiful that I can't figure why you had only one reply?
And I'm glad to see just how good the XZ-1 is as I have been trying to talk myself out of buying one!
I already have the VF-2 for the E-PL3 so it would make good sense. That F1.8 lens is a doozie.

Re: Reasons to be happy

This is good to see, Wally. They are lovely pictures and the combination, especially the VF-2, seem to be working well for you.

Sorry to have missed this post first time around, are you still getting on well with the camera?

Re: Reasons to be happy

Thanks for all the kind remarks. He is a little cracker and so full of life it's almost scary.

I've been doing a calendar, one snap per month so that we all have something to look back to and see the subtle changes as they occur and, they will make a nice personal Xmas pressie.

The xz-1, given my problems, when fitted with the EVF has been working a treat... until I dropped it a few weeks back, literally within hours of buying an e-p3 kit on this forum.

I now own it and my friend now has a new one as replacement. My only real niggle with it was the lens cap which I've now sorted with a legit Oly one - not exactly a cheap work-a-round - but it doesn't add to the overall size of the camera.

With the xz-1 and the e-p3 plus a few added lens, I think I'm more than covered for the sort of togging I will be attempting.
