Well, horrible in that is exposes my complete lack of willpower.

I called my local camera store today just to check on my E-M5 body preorder status. I was pretty sure, up until now, that I was going to pass on the E-M5 and wait for the updated E-P3. Anway, the friendly salesperson lets me know that, lo and behold, my camera just arrived in their warehouse and would be at their store tomorrow.

Arggghhhh!

So, yeah, there is approximately a 100.0% chance that I will go down and pick it up tomorrow.

My condolences/congratulations. I feel sorry/am happy for you.
:daz:
Haha, thanks! Nah, I am generally happy. It has actually been nice to read some user experiences before receiving mine... feel like I know what I am getting into.

I believe an intervention is required. Just have the salesperson ship the camera to me instead. I'm only trying to help.
SC is such a helpful group of folks! Thanks, Armando! I could ship you a slightly used (by that I mean looks like it rolled down the face of a small mountain) E-P3 instead.

No, no, enjoy E-M5 thoroughly! And to make place, ship your K01 to me:p
I would, but I am worried that it will be an expensive shipment. The K-01 is a bit heavy. :biggrin:

Heck we've all seen the state of the buildings in Kyle's neighbourhood, he will be lucky if the warehouse is still standing in the morning! :p

Enjoy your new camera Kyle!
:rofl: Great point, Karen!

I am still waiting for the Minnesota or Wisconsin Tourism Boards to offer to pay me to stop posting photographs.

pictogramax put dibs in on the Pentax right away and I don't what I'd do with two E-P3s.
I do have a pretty, red E-PL3 that my wife wants me to sell. Hmmm, oh yeah, and I do have a banged up LX3 (it was my backpacking/snow cam for a bit) I could let someone have, so both you and Armando are covered! :2thumbs:

Don't do it, Kyle! It's a horrible camera. I'm struggling just to press the shutter button on mine. Of course that's partly because I'm trying out the shutter release on the awesome tilty/touchy screen, but that's neither here nor there. BTW, would it bring a tear to your eye if I said that I haven't been able to get the PL25 to rattlesnake on the E-M5 yet. Oh, and be warned; the first time that you find yourself alone with the E-M5 in a quiet room will be an eye-opener.

Seriously though, this is a definitive camera for Olympus. A genuine two-fingered salute to anyone who ever said that Olympus and/or Micro Four Thirds wouldn't survive or couldn't be taken seriously alongside larger formats.

Enjoy Darth Vader!

Yeah, you were no help, Nic, with your images and positive feedback! :biggrin:

Crazy cool to hear the PL25 may not rattlesnake. If it was going to be the same as my E-P3, I was considering selling the PL25 and sticking with the 20/1.7 as a more compact option (plus have the FoV covered on my Pentax).

I am really looking forward to the tilt screen. I think I will use that a lot more than the viewfinder.

Thanks for the heads-up on the hum. I think I am ready for Darth! Dang, I knew I should have got the Stormtrooper version of the K-01 (black/white).

I don't know what this camera does to people: I was just checking availability on another tab in this browser. And I'm not getting it til November. Or so I thought....
