Equipment List Update

Oh no... I went for a walk on Sunday, and don't know why I walk into the camera shop, and don't know why the shop has a E-620 on display, and don't know why I ask to play with the E-620, and don't know why I took out my wallet to pay for the E-620, and don't know why I'm a happy person now... hehehe.. sigh... Anyway, the E-620 is a nice little camera, paired with the 25mm pancake lens - I think it's about the smallest DSLR to carry around.

There is only a minor quibble - the grip. For some reason, it doesn't feel as comfortable as the E-420 which I had before and like very much. But I have to sell it as I realise having image stabilisation do help me quite a bit. I guess I will get used to it soon, it's a tradeoff for the in-body image stabilisation which the E-420 (and the E-450) lacks.
