    The macros look great! That's something I need to try more of one of these days...

    I love the SCP, so I turned it on for every mode. It's a lot like the "Q" button on my Canon 7D which I'm used to. Especially with the lack of hard buttons, I find myself using it often. I did set one of the custom buttons to ISO, but I find myself using the SCP most often.

    I hardly used the mysets on the E-P3, but I'm using them a lot on the E-M5. I have the first set to my "home" settings. This is my baseline, so no matter what I monkey with I can always get back home. I've found myself grabbing the camera the morning after shooting at night and shooting at some crazy high ISO in bright light on accident before. I'm now in the habit of turning on the camera and going to straight to myset 1 to make sure I'm good.

    The others are more dedicated to tasks. Myset 2 is set to 5 shot bracketing at 9fps for HDR, myset 3 has IS turned off with a 2 sec timer for tripod shooting, and myset 4 is set to live bulb. Overall, I like them, I just wish I could set a hard button to take me to the selection list. I also wish I could name them!

    Thanks for the info Brett! That shot shows so much detail. How does it compare to your 7D in DR and IQ?

    I would say that for static images, the 7D has been pretty much obsoleted by the E-M5. IQ and DR are both better. The only concern I have now is moving subjects. I enjoy motorsports photography, so I need to get it out to the track to see how it does. I know the continuous AF system is supposed to be the weak link. Depending on the results, the 7D might be up for sale...

    Thats a great shot Brett. 10000 ISO on the OM-D. WOW! How do you like the 20mm? I bought the 45 with the $150 rebate but I'm really thinking of selling it for the Pana Leica 25. I love the 45 but I would use the 25 more often espcially indoors.

    That's a tough one because the 45mm is my all time favorite lens, though I do hear that the 25mm is awesome. I really like the 20mm, it takes great pictures and is tiny. I may upgrade to the 25mm at some point, I need to use my friend's lens for a bit to see if it's worth it!

    Thanks Harry. I found it so much easier shooting in manual focus on this ride. I normally would miss so many chances while my camera battled to focus in auto. This time I decided I would test it out in manual and such a better experience.
