    I'm a member of talkemount, and just signed up here yesterday. I have popped in here from time to time to browse, but never registered 'till now. I've been using NEXes the past couple of years, first a 5R and currently a 6, which I like a lot. I had a Pentax K-30 weather-sealed camera, and it took very nice photos, but I really preferred the NEX size, feel and controls, so I sold the K-30 after less than a year. I also have a Pentax Q which I throw up from time to time attached to a model airplane.

    I've been watching the OM-D E-M5 pretty much since they came out, and finally found a near-mint used one for a very nice price. It arrived yesterday, and it really does look brand new. Although slightly heavier, the E-M5 is almost identical to the NEX-6 in size. I'll be submitting a post with a few pics in a few minutes.
