I like giving my old electronics away. I’ll have a Olympus 17mm f2.8 lens to giveaway soon. But no camera to go with it. That would be useless for my sister. I gave one of my sister’s a camera already, don’t know if she uses it. She could use that lens on it, but she already has a lens.
My other sister doesn’t have a micro four thirds camera. The E-PM2 costs about $150 used on Amazon, about what I got for mine.
The E-PL5 is a little more, $189, still barely under $200. I’d buy the E-PL6, but it sold out already on mpb.com. The 5 is only $180 on the site, and it comes with a charge, the 6 didn’t. I still would of bought it. I almost bought, I think it was the 6, from the official Olympus site, it was refurbished I think, and under 200 bucks, can’t remember if it came with a lens, I think it was around $160. If I wait long enough, somebody might have something for cheaper.
Not sure I can tell the difference between the pictures that I took with the E-PM2 and my current camera, the OM-D E-M10. The only real difference is the built in viewfinder.
Oh yeah, I sold my E-PM2 with a viewfinder that attaches to it. The used one on Amazon doesn’t come with that.
The problem is, I don’t have enough money for the best lens available. Even if I did, I probably wouldn’t buy it.
Be selfish and sell the two lenses I don’t need, and buy something for myself. The i5 costs to much, $190, and you can’t even overclock it. All the new AMD CPUs will be overclockable. I don’t overclock, I just like the ability, that way I know they aren’t putting an artificial limit on it.
Buy a Fuji X10 for myself, so I can be a Peeping Fuji. It has a lens on it. Is it small enough though? It’ll need to fit up my bum, so I can get myself arrested, and smuggle it into prison, so I can make prison porn.
For myself, I’d rather buy the Fuji X-E1, and the lens I ordered for my current camera. It’s about 200 bucks on mpb.com.
It’s settled, I’ll buy the Fuji X10, after I’m done “testing” it, I’ll give it to my sister. That might be a couple years or longer, and it might no longer function either. Never mind, it’s to damn old, from 2011. I can get an Olympus that old for less, and give her the 17mm lens.
Now to take a picture for this post, that will make absolutely no sense. Never mind, the dog is in the way. I’ll wait for the new lens.
