I Got It! Meet My New Photo Partner - Olympus OM-D EM-5

Finally took the plunge and got myself a new appendage in the form of the Olympus OM-D.  After four years with my beloved Canon S90 (of which I recommended enthusiastically to all friends and strangers alike,) I decided I needed a camera that can shoot well at night (without flash,) be quick with my candid compositions, and still compact enough to fit into my various pockets, purses and bags - in short, perform everything my little S90 used to reliably do, only better.  
Taking it out for a the kitchen.
It's been eight hours since I've brought it home and so far, it's not disappointed me in the least.  I love everything about it - the way it intuitively knows what I want focused and which bits to tastefully fuzz, the retro-ness in its body aesthetics, and how easy it is to handle overall.  The only downside I can see so far is that darn detachable lens cap which I just know will soon be an honorary citizen in that Land of Misplaced Stuff, of which the current inhabitants are orphaned socks, USB cables, used lip glosses and original house keys.

  1. My experience with orphaned socks and lens caps are very different from yours. With socks, well, there is another parallel universe where mis-matched socks is a fashion statement, so they take whatever they want from me whenever they feel like it. I probably lost one lens cap in my entire 40+ years of working with them. I misplace them quite often; like I would dig into my pocket thinking that my lens cap is there but it is not, then when I get back to my car, it's there on the seat. My lens cap always somehow manage to find my lens.
