    I actually remember that picture from when you first posted it! The clouds still have a nice lot of detail in them which is kinda what I'm hoping for from the E1...

    Cople of days ago camera reminded me that I'm still missing quality glass, wider angle and a tripod - would loved getting a better shot
    Considering you can get a 1TB drive for £40 these days it’s easy to keep everything… the difficulty then comes when you back it all up!

    I still like it, the frozen water gives it a real ethereal feel… is the lake still fozen?

      Re: E510 vs E1

      I'm seriously considering finding a cheap E-1 for a temporary camera until I can save up for an E-5. My E-3's shutter just died on me, leaving me with only my E-P1. I do need a replacement asap, as I have a lot of important location work coming up. My E-P1 should service me in the studio for the time being, but won't cut it in the field.

      The only problem is... how do I convince my commercial clients that 5MP is enough, when it's coming from a sharp, vibrant CCD? Perhaps I should try it and upsample everything before presenting it to anyone. I bet the quality would hold up.

        Upsampling is probably worth a try... maybe someone could send you a few E1 files to play with before buying one?

        When someone asks you if 5MP is enough, just remind them that "full HD" is only the equivalent of 2MP! (1920x1080)

          A bit OT (I was drunk when made last post) but yeah the lake was a frozen (at least some of it) and there were those great cracks in the ice.

          Ned if in need I can upload to you some E1 RAWs to play with, not a quality glass in use but will give somekind of imagination.

            The E1 was the flagship camera albeit a couple of generations ago and a few megapixels have been added since then too but it's still a fantastic camera, even now. Unless you are going to blow up your shots to fit bill boards it doesn't matter. With the 14-54mm lens Mk1 or Mk2 it's a great setup. I recently got that very setup and love it. I hope you enjoy as I am.

              Are there other users out there who use both the E510 and E1... if so, what's been your experience?

              The main thing that annoys me about the E510 is the blown highlights... I've read that the E1 has better dynamic range, can anyone verify that?

              Obviously to take advantage of the weather sealing I'd also need to invest in a HG lens and I saw one lucky so-and-so win a 14-54 mk1 for £155! One question; is the only difference between mk1 and mk2 the contrast based AF support?
              This may not be important to you, but there is a difference in the lens hood and how it attaches to the lens. The Olympus ring flash can be attached directly to the front of the 14-54 mk I and the 50-200 mk I lens but not to the mk II versions of each. I never got an explanation of why they made that change.

              I've had an E-1 for quite a few years now and I still use it. The LCD is rather small compared to the newer ones but the optical viewfinder is fine. The sensor does not have the higher ISO capabilities of the newer ones, of course.

              I haven't used the 14-54 mk II myself, but I have been quite happy with the focusing of the mk I on the E-1. Of course, I'm not a sports photographer or a pro photographer :-)
