It isn’t a new camera in the sense that it was never used before, but it’s close enough! I hasn’t been used much and this is the first time I’ve gotten a new camera and immediately seen an improvement in photographs. The OMD M1 Mark II (the three is out, but that’s way out of my range) and since my friend Ben got a nearly new three from a friend, he sold me his nearly unused II and voila! Also, Olympus supposedly is selling out. We don’t even know if there will be any new Olympus cameras — or lenses — after this year. Which is distressing since I’ve been using Olympus’s cameras since I was in my 20s.
All the pictures of the Blue Jay were not post-processed. This camera focuses really fast!
This is one amazing camera. It reminds me of the OMD EM5 Mark II in terms of it’s size and shape, but it takes a bigger battery and it holds two CD cards. So you can shoot one in RAW and one in JPG. Or one in color, the other in black & white. I haven’t figured out what I want to do with it, so for the moment, I’m doing nothing about it. But I did take 133 pictures with it today. The birds, hearing about the improvement in seed, have come back. Are they spoiled or what?
