This was going to be my test. The G1 came through with flying colors.
I had the E-P1 on a Y-strap with the 50 f/2 on it, too. It was just too bright (parade started at noon). I used it for about 20 shots. If Oly comes out with the next incarnation of the E-P1 with an EVF, I will be all over it. I also had some trouble with settings getting changed (all of a sudden I was shooting with the 2 second timer on???). Those are issues that experience with the E-P1 should iron out. I'm just not familiar enough to recover quickly.
The EP-1 is one step too late for me as I am still happy with the G1.
There are appearing fingernail scratches on my G-1's camerabody grip, so I definitely need a new one in the near future
Another problem is I don't use my E-3 for some time now.
TEBnewyork what dreamcamera you know more about?
I am dreaming about a slightly smaller, more rangefinder looking camera with a tiltable LCD, (improved) EVF, some more megapixels and an one tip aproachable 20x focus magnification.
Is that too much too ask?
My E-3 went bye, bye after the G1 showed up.
[QUOTE=Cindy Flood;122600]Tell me about it. I wore the paint off of the buttons on my black G1. I just sent it off to be converted to an IR body. I got a new G1. I fashioned a button cover to protect the buttons this time. It is working well so far.
My E-3 went bye, bye after the G1 showed up.
What is an IR body?
Forgot to mention that the 2 buttons for focus magnification are almost completly black also. That means I can't sell this camera anymore
You are so brave by just saying bey bey to your E-3 . You never take pictures in the rain?
I am mentally still not ready. I have to become more rational
Thanks for that; it is may be ready for sale.
I just wasn't using the E3 enough. I put a little raincoat on my gear if I go out into the rain.

I am having my black G1 converted to a dedicated IR (Infrared photography) camera. It was calibrated to use the kit lens, but I'm hoping some of my other lenses will work, too. I'll post some pics when I get it back.
Never got into IR photography. Are you into spionage
Does it mean you can't use the camera normal wise anymore?
Well, it shows I don't know anything about this. here is a picture.
Shot with the 45-200 because it happened to be on the camera.
Time stood still in Toronto
I am going to convert a G1 to do UV and IR. From my experience with the NMOS sensor (E-410), I would expect significant increase in details (the glass is just too thick on these) and significantly lower noise due to enormous sensitivity in the UV and IR regions (way better than a CCD sensor which is several times better than a CMOS sensor).
It will be interesting to see Cindy's results. Where are you getting yours converted Cindy? What kind of a filter they would be using?
My conversion is being done here: http://www.precisioncamera.com/infra...-services.html
I am having the 665nm option. I sent in the kit lens to be calibrated with the G1. I haven't received it back yet, but they told me that it worked out well (it was their first G1 conversion.)
A few recent images from my G1 with 45-200mm
My first picture to this forum.
I've had my G1 less than a week, and love it. This was taken with the kit 45 - 200mm lens on Tuesday.
Here some pics from my G1/55-200
Took my 45-200 to the Zoo this weekend. Great lens!
The G1 quetly snaps on, with the most keepers of any camera I owned before. That said; here is one with lens at 200mm from far away.

Really like that reflection, Scott. What kind of flag is the other one? Some Corporation flag?
Here is one where you can see a part of the Atlantic wall made by th Germans.
I'd be pleased if you could start another thread on this topic ...
btw ... since the camera focuses by what lands on the sensor (not what lands on the focus screen) will it need calibration? My Nikon coolpix did not.
The weird thing is we see just one pair, and they are both bright yellow. But they exhibit sexual dimorphism which mean the the two sexes change color in different ways though the seasons. That's why we see what looks like two males, but I think this is the time of year where the female catches up to the male in color.
I guess they will leave us when Winter comes so I won't have a chance to see if they go khaki.
I've been watching the various purple cone flower pictures, including yours, and I think you are a month or so ahead of us. We have a few and they attract butterflies, birds, bees - good for testing the macro lens.
Yesterday I was "working" at Virginia Beach , and managed to do some sniping off of my 7th floor balcony.

gorgeous shots everyone!!
I'm just back from summer holidays in our farm in Russia, and I would like to share the first flower close-ups with you.
If you like these, stay tuned for more !

New G1, trial shots with 45-200
is there a thread for pictures shot with the G1/GH1 and the 45-200 kit lens?
If not I'd like to start one right here.
There was one, http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6856
but it was rather long. A new start is good.
Actually, let's keep them together for posterity, I'll merge them. We've sped up the server with a bigger pipe, so it's fine to keep them together .

Digged up this thread because I ran into this picture I want to share.
The 45-200 is a nice lens for weddings from a distance.
Like the background rendering too.
I actually think some of the issues with this lenses at the greater focal lengths is related to the difficulty in handholding and getting a steady shot. Here is 100% crop at 200mm. I think this is pretty decent for this lens.
