Never Say Never

When I purchased my Olympus OM-D E-M1 mirrorless interchangeable-lens compact (MILC) camera in September 2014, I said that I would not buy another camera ever again.  Never say never!

I ordered a new camera on Sunday, March 3rd.  My new camera is the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, which arrived this past Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 pm.  See how exact I am about the arrival time?

My new camera, before the unboxing

My new camera has been around for awhile.  It was released in November 2016, about 3 years after its predecessor.  I am keeping my Olympus OM-D E-M1 — as a second body.  

Here is a comparison between the two cameras.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 vs. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

My new camera has several improvements, compared to its predecessor.  I am looking forward to photographing birds with my new camera.  I should have more success with birds-in-flight, given the faster auto focus capability.

There is a ripple effect, when a new camera is purchased.  Since purchasing the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, I also made the following purchases:

• the Kindle Edition of “Mastering the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II” by Darrell Young,

• a Lexar Professional 128GB Memory Card, and

• a second Olympus BLH-1 Rechargeable Battery

I anticipate the purchase of additional memory card(s).

I plan on my new camera being the last camera that I purchase in my lifetime.  I won’t say never, though!

    For a moment there I thought you might be referring to my current fav song “Never Say Never” by Passenger. Of course I continued reading to see what it was all about. Anyhow, check out the song, it’s really lovely. Congrats on your new last camera, your photos are awesome!
