The fat cats are going to have to lift their game. The little guys are HUNGRY!
 
The final nail in Canon's coffin was the release of the Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 Pro. Until that point there wasn't a professional grade lens in the MFT lineup that came as a suitable replacement for my Canon 70-200L f/2.8. (I didn't really see the Panasonic as suitable as I wanted an Olympus constant aperture)

I tested the 40-150mm at an Olympus event in London at the Olympus Image Space and I was so impressed with the sharpness and focus accuracy.

2015 will see me out this (and my other lenses) through their paces at a multitude of events, including 14 weddings, nearly as many engagement shoots, portraits, 8 Days in Dubai, 4 days in Venice (where we are only taking cabin luggage), a birds of prey experience and also 5 days shooting motorsports at the Le Mans 24 hours (which I've shot for the last 3 years on my Canon system).

Suffice to say I'll be using this kit in a variety ways and producing a variety of photographs.

I have every faith it's going to perform!

+Alison Stegert this should tie you even more to OneNote!

Oh and you can get it native on mac now too!
If you use OneNote on the iPad, you've probably wondered by now why the heck you can't just use a pen. After all, the Android tablet added stylus support

Time to start saving...
 
Olympus is excited to present to you the OM-D E-M5 Mark II : Designed to set you free.

Symbolising photographic freedom with its in-body 5-axis Image Stabilisation with up to five shutter speed steps of shake-compensation.

The E-M5 Mark II’s superb video IS ability makes high-quality filmmaking much easier to achieve for the video novice. Engineered to provide ‘pro cinema’ quality stability typically available only with professional gyro-stabilised external rigs, it is so effective that you can even record stable dynamic action footage when you’re running and recording with the camera in hand. Video is recorded at Full HD resolution with a choice of 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60P frame rates.

Introducing another world’s first to the mass DSLR/Mirrorless ILC market is the E-M5 Mark II’s “Hi Res Shot” mode, capturing composited 40 megapixel ‘full-frame sensor’ quality pictures by using the camera’s Voice Coil Motor (VCM) driven IS mechanism to systematically shift the image sensor by half a pixel’s width as it takes 8 shots in sequence.

If there was a delete one, I know a few people I would invite to have a seat! And if you had a home one, it would so easy to pop home for lunch.

I started a trello account because of this article
 
You can organize just about anything in Trello:
Trello is an awesome project management tool that makes collaboration easy and, dare I say, even fun. But this visual list tool can do so much more, whether you're organizing work projects, family chores, travel plans, or just about anything else. Here are some ways to put Trello to use for managing your entire life.
