I've been trying out the Olympus OMD-EM10 to use alongside the Pentax K20. Very pleased so far, but for wildlife (or any other moving subject!) the electronic viewfinder has limitations over the DSLR's more immediate viewfinder. The controls, body size and weight are so close to the old 35mm OM2 so there are a lot of benefits over the DSLR for a wrinkly old wreck like me. I can't see it replacing the Pentax, but for a lot of jobs I can see it getting preferential treatment.

The remembrance of the Great War inspired my submission of "Lest we forget..."  :iconpoppyplz:
It's a hundred years since the conflict. Poppies, cornflowers and forget me nots are symbols of hope and remembrance in various nations - "Lest we forget" and history repeats itself...

Thanks for the fave and spending a moment in thought     NaNoEmo day 11 - Remember 

Please do keep on watching Dave???    Waving

I just wrote a critique on one of your photos, and I had no idea you've been doing it as long as you say you have! I'm really sorry if you don't like it, and feel free to absolutely not accept it!
