I wish I had seen digital coming before I put 50K into film cameras darkroom and studio equipment.

Should you ever get the bug to buy again, I would suggest going mirrorless. That is the wave of the future and Sony is spearheading that with their latest Alpha.

Appreciate the advice on the lenses and know what you mean about deleting photos.  I have it set up to take multiple frames when I press the button.  On our trip to Lake Powell, I probably took over 600 pictures with a lot of oops's in the mix.  Expect the keepers will end up being around a couple dozen but SD cards are cheap.

I was a little concerned with the Olympus being able to handle fast action shots but did just fine photographing a water skier and caught the bird.

How's things going? Still enjoying that new camera? If so, I would like to encourage you to try our monthly contest. Seeing your participation would be welcome competition.

I used to truely love working with my Hasselblads, even working with a Yashikamat 124G was a true pleasure and being able to develope the film and print it in my darkroom was a joy that I suspect most will never know.  But digital is here to stay so getting it to sync with studio lights is the challenge for me.
