    I picked up my new Pen-F yesterday afternoon (replacing my EM-10v2) and love it. Brought along a few charged batteries and my 14-42EZ lens, spent some time in Times Square learning the camera and changing most of my settings and then had a concert at BB Kings with The Rides (great Blues/Rock band with Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Sheppard and Barry Goldberg).
    Some pics - was shooting RAW+JPEG. Loved the Color and B&W Profile dial (hope I don't use it so much that it falls off). Pictures are a mixture of the profiled JPEGS and RAW imported into Lightroom 6 with slight adjustments and cropping.
    Comments welcome.

    I started listening to him when I discovered him through Apple Music last year and this was my first chance to see him live. Loved the way that Stephen and Kenny played off each other but Kenny was AMAZING!!!

    I like the first picture best - particularly the highlights along the edges of the steps and on the handrails. I'm not sure about the light at the top of the shot, but otherwise I think this is a terrific image.

  6. I have only had my PEN-f for a few weeks and am LOVING LOVING LOVING it!!!!!!

    I have always been a RAW shooter but have been having huge fun with the Mono modes (Monomode 2 is my fave!!) and I have been playing with the ART filters also and they are great too. I am really tempted to just go with JPG's from now on! I will prob either do RAW +Jpg or download the Oly software and convert the raw's there if I want to add filters.

    Talking of which I wonder if the mono and colour filters are available in the Oly raw converter?

    Mono Mode 2
