Anyone have memories of spending time like this at the river? I sure do.

Treating Friends Right

by Robert Watcher

Anne and I are heading back to our home in Nicaragua in a few days - and so we had to treat our Canadian Hosts to a wonderful evening and meal before we leave. They picked us up at the airport in Detroit, 3 hours from their home - gave us a comfortable place to stay for the past three months - and are returning us to Detroit for our flight back to Nicaragua.

Their selection was the new and impressive Beach Street Station in Goderich, Ontario. It is remarkable the fine job the owners have done in transforming this old train station into a desirable restaurant. The outdoor patio, faces the beaches and setting sun of Lake Huron.

True Grit

My photography has been on serious hiatus due to lack of events that interest me, and time. Out of boredom, I've taken to prowling our yard to subjects. For the pasty three years, this elusive (ought to be called the Artful Dodger) catbird has escaped my lens. This year, a pair has nested in our immediate vicinity. I know catbirds aren't as exciting as other birds, but after three years, I'm glad to get some shots than don't go immediately into the trash.

This pair was bringing home the groceries one morning, and held their ground. It was interesting so see the smorgasbord of bugs they caught for their chicks. Still dealing with noise issues (Olympus repair never addressed them), so any critiques/comments are welcome.

Newbie with a question. My first micro 4/3 was a Panasonic G1, loved it, then I upgraded to a G5, loved it more, then I added a GH3 recently, even more love, now to the question, I've been eyeing the Olympus OMD-EM1 and would like to add it to my bag, the price has come down which has made it even more enticing, but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be sort of redundant because of my other three micro 4/3's cameras or if it would be a great addition and have features my other cameras just can't do ?? As far as lens go, I have several different length Panasonic lens that would also work on the E-1. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and wisdom !!

Anybody shoot either, or, preferably, both of these. Torn between them. Anybody know the min. aperture at 50mm FF equivalent?

Perhaps you could tell me how they perform.
