I may just treat you to 1,5 hour of video that the E-PL3 will take of the goldfish in my pond tomorrow, Mark. That is - if you're good.
Your images certainly show how good the E5 is with that beautiful lens. I hope Oly brings out the E7 with the new sensor too (& with more updated tech. additions) to give these great lenses another suitable body to use with them in the future.

You can get the downlowd for Kuso Exif Viewer here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multime...f-Viewer.shtml & click on the blue DOWNLOAD -> (but not on the ads that surround it). To use it you just right click the mouse on the image concerned on the WEB & also you own stored files. Hope that helps.

Woops - sorry Ross, if I had read properly I would have noticed that you had already mentioned to Mark about the EXIF from Google.
Perhaps we can go for the longest thread ever not relating to the original subject
If I keep interjecting!

Thanks Lyn - I was hoping to hear back from Ross who I emailed, he usually rocks up around midnight wearing dark glasses, a typical muso!!

I'm a bit nervous about Chrome as to whether it might conflict with IE.

Yeah ... I'm wondering whether the Crimson Rosella is still there, back on p.1

Sorry Mark. You'll either read this or the email first, but with IE you may need to allow Active X with Kuso perhaps. However, you can always install Google Chrome as well, but donít let it make it the default browser if you donít want it to, although at any time you can make either one the default browser.

I hope you can have success one way or another.

Re: A Crimson Rosella stops by to say "hello".

Ah, there you are Ross.
Just emailed you re this, now have both Kuso and Chrome as said but neither opens exifs as yet.
Will call in my tech savvy guy on Sunday.
Thanks for the help and advice, I guess I'm at least half way there!

It was that assessment that turned me off the E-M5.
There is someone else with some good experience with this in this thread.

Thanks, Lyn. I have installed Google Chrome but am not happy with either its EXIF reader or indeed the browser which is way slower than IE and in many cases GC can't find the page, or simply times out while IE delivers.
I will try Ross' alternative Kuso, and if I like it better then I will uninstall Chrome.

Thanks for that, Ross. Just as I feared.

But as I implied elsewhere, cameras are like spouses, aside from ourselves there aren't any perfect ones !
