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 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.
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!

I look forward to seeing many great photos taken with this new camera.
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!
Hahaha i’ve seen you told this in one post somewhere where I even asked you about it, yer I thought it is a different new one.
