Starbucks is a great place to get a caffeine fix or a munchie... but it's also my personal storefront. I posted a CraigsList ad for a G5 yesterday morning, had several interested parties by noon, and met Andy at a nearby Starbucks in the early afternoon. His reaction, captured with the ep3 + 20/1.7, made it clear we had a deal.

After I had money in hand, we discussed the finer points of photography and lenses. I showed him virtues of the 45/1.8 for portraits...

and he let me try out his Sigma 30/2.8. I was impressed at how well this affordable lens does wide open.

The G5 is a terrific camera, and shooting with it was fun, but I missed Oly jpgs and ibis. The EP3 may be discontinued, but it's far from obsolete.

You'll be impressed with the ep3. Where did you get it?

Frank,
You're a wheelin' & dealin' machine! :smile:
I'm trying out for Jonathan's understudy.

This is making me miss M43. Maybe I'll pick up an E-PM1! :tongue:
Please do. It was more fun when you hung out here.

Great images and congrats on the sale
Happy seller and happy buyer = great deal
Definitely a win/win, Morten. Are you still in China?

I do all of my camera selling at Starbucks. Nice environment and works well for the person to take some images to see that the camera works.
