Bill: Thought you should see a picture of mine the LA Times ran in it’s Sunday Travel section today. I credit the (iso 6400) photo as shot with an Olympus OMD-EM5.

David:You may be interested in these brief reviews of several lenses (including some surprises) that have worked well for me on MFT (Panasonic) bodies…:–Lenses.htm

Jared: Has some of the most spectacular panoramas I’ve seen. I was looking to see what equipment he uses and found some older panoramas with exif data still: This seems to use a 43rds olympus E-410 and the olympus 8mm f3.5 fisheye. Pretty stunning for not only a tiny sensor, but a really old sensor as well…Also, I see some newer panoramas mentioning olympus, so I think a lot of his panoramas are taken with 43rds gear.

New SH-1 is the first worldwide compact camera with 5 axis on sensor IS for stills and images.

P.S.: I don’t know where you can have that sexy leather case for the new SH-1.

The first PEN looking compact camera has one unique feature: It’s the first camera with a 5 axis on sensor stabilization. Combine this with the super 25-600mm zoom range and you will have a great combination!
