I too REALLY want Olympus to come out with a great 20/25. Say 25 1.8 even to keep the weight down. The Panny 25 has a rattlesnake sound (kind of wondering if it's like the 35 2.0 if so then I'm not worried) and the 20 bands in low light at ISO1600+ which I use a LOT. Not sure which to get because of this.

For quality? The PanaLeica. It's not like the rattle snaking (which is apparently somewhat intermittent) affects image quality. And the banding on the 20/1.7 seems to mostly occur at higher ISO with higher shutter - I haven't really noticed an issue so far.

My OM-D just shipped and will be here tomorrow! Picked up a used 45mm 1.8 off Fred Miranda as well, can't wait to give this body a shot.

The 45mm is great on any camera, and the E-M5 is no exception. They make a nice combination when it gets dark.

yeah I'm not overly worried about the rattlesnaking, but they say it'll come through on video, and with the banding I shoot my husbands band and need high ISO to get high shutter speed to freeze motion on stage (I shoot ISO3200/6400 to try to get 1/250) So that's why I worry a bit. But from using the camera a bit I saw one shot and saw how grainy it was, not bad mind you just noisier then the other shots and saw it was ISO8000! That could be converted to b&w and very easily be used for the web, so to get faster shutter speeds with the OMD I probably could just crank the ISO more too.

But with the rattlesnaking I could always switch lenses for video. It's an easier fix then not being able to use the 20 at all in those band situations.

Now I just need to sell my canon stuff so I can buy a lens or two aside from the kit lens! Of course the kit lens is pretty great for a cheap zoom! I'm getting fairly good results with it and it's only been a little less then 2 weeks!

Has anyone used the 100-300 for birds? Not BIF just them sitting in the trees around the yard. Yes they're skittish and move very quick, but I'd rather get slightly frustrated then not have the longer lens. But if it's real bad for keeping up with them, then maybe it's not worth it.

Here are some more photos from the kit lens

SO happy I waited until I could get a silver. In love with the retro styling. Can't wait to break it in.

Yeah, silver retro-style definitely looks nice.

My default setup is with Oly 12-50mm kit lens and clipped-on flash. Lens has Hoya UV filter as well as JJC lens hood.

This is with Oly 45mm lens with JJC lens hood.

Hard to see in this shot, but it has a cheap eBay glossy screen protector on ;)

Where did you get the shutter release? I used mine a lot on my 60D and it's on my must have list to buy as soon as I get some extra cash.

I bought it from JJC's Australian online website for only A$10.

As you can see from my pic and the pic shown on the website, they look completely different :confused: but mine works as described.

Oh I didn't see you're from Aus. I'll have to look here in the states. Looks great though! Can you get the extra batteries there yet? Still out of stock everywhere here. Driving me nuts! That's my biggest dislike about the camera, battery life sucks!

Shot with PW PII's and a Dynalite pack setup. It's a little over exposed as I shot it right after doing the same with my 5D MKII using the same setting except for ISO. Forgot that the lowest ISO is only 200.

I am sure you can find the remote online e.g. eBay.

As for the OEM battery I was lucky, got mine over a month ago when I called a local camera store and they managed to get one for me within a week. I know a lot of people still waiting for spare OEM batteries to be in stock.

picked up the L-bracket and hand grip from "Jon" the other day. The grip is rad. I'm torn on the L-bracket because this isn't exactly a landscape camera for me, but it works VERY well with the spider holster...
