    Seeing as I've recently resurrected the photography forum, time for a bit of an update...

    I think last time I posted here I was still running the Nikon D800. A fantastic camera for sure but just ludicrously too much for my poor skills. I always felt that I could never do the camera justice.
    I then moved back to Pentax with their new (at the time) K3. Again a fantastic camera, but I just lost interest and because of its size/bulk I just never took it anywhere.
    I then got rid of it all and had a think for a while. Eventually I bit the bullet and picked up an Olympus E-M5 and started a collection of lenses for it.
    It really is a great camera and being so much smaller than anything previous it actually goes places now. With the grip off and the little collapsible 14-42 EZ lens, it even fits into the tool bag on the front of the Drifter.
    Recently tho, I got the 12-40 2.8 Pro lens. This is seriously one of, if not THE best lens I've owned on any camera. Its quick, sharp, and very versatile for anything in the wide to normal focal range (which is what I mainly shoot).

    Sweet looks the goods. My crash camera is a Sony NEX 5n. A few lenses. love the portability. It comes on the bike. Hence its crash camera moniker.

    I did think about Sony, but the lens range on m43 won out in the end.
    Mind you, when the 5n was released, m43 wasn't even around.
