Sun in the rain

We were having brunch at the beach restaurant when it suddenly rains... and there in front of me, on the table was a little vase with a single sun flower braving the rain.

Olympus announces the E-620

Wow, what a pretty little camera! Olympus combines the best of the E-420 (Size & portability), E-520 (Image Stabilisation) and E-30 (Features & technology), and came out with this little winner.

Olympus E-620 Features & Specifications

At PMA 2009, it attracted many attention and raised eyebrows. I jumped onto the DSLR wagon and invested in the 4/3 system some time ago, and I guess there is finally light at the end of the tunnel with Olympus' continued commitment to the 4/3 system.

Damn, now I regret getting the E-520 in December :(
