    I posted this on mu-43.com as well.

    My better half and I went down to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on Saturday. This was the first real outing with the newly aquired E-PL5. I'm pretty impressed with the camera, and the latitude the RAW files have compared to the E-PL3. Most of these are OOC jpegs except a few that I really needed to tweek in RAW. We spent most of our time in the Japanese Garden. Some of the other gardens had blooms that had already come and gone or not in yet. Most of these were shot using a polarizer. This tends to bring out the natural leave color a little better.
