G'day Azza from another one of us downunder (Geelong...).
Ramble and rant all you like. Love it! You sound like you've been bitten by the photography bug in, um, er, the worst possible (best!?) way!
I too am partial to the Olympus marque, having used an OM1n, OM2n and then the beautiful OM4 (I owned 2, after one was destroyed during a bicycle touring accident in 1985). My all-electronic EOS 1N has, as its prime lens, a manual-focus tilt/shift lens, and I much prefer this over the AF "do everything" others I have.
