    Just as I've been successfully selling off my lesser-used bits of gear, pangs of GAS started up when reading reviews of the E-P5. It looks like a beauty, especially since it is meant to really mimic one of my all-time favorite film cameras, the original Pen-F, look and logo-wise. Thankfully, I have one of those beauties, and took her out for a spin this weekend. I am also happy my local Walgreen's flm developer knows how to cut and scan half-frame negatives.

    A few from the last couple of days shooting with the Pen-F, either with the 38mm F1.8 or 20mm F 4.0.

    Yes! Paying for my older son's second year college tuition fees also helps......

    The GAS Fighter pictured below, and more of his output (complete with dust marks on neg scans and all that other film stuff). Taken with the Zuiko 20mm F4.0 and 37mm F1.8, and CVS ISO 400 film, processed at Walgreen's.
