    Too bad not vertical grip

    Me pending approval from "Finance Minister"

    Seem like US having better promotion

    body + kit lens + 40-150 = $899

    Which is 899 X 1.66 = about 1.5k SGD

    time to call me buddy in San Francisco

    Very detailed review indeed. The amount of improvements in terms of onboard processing such as 'lens shading' & increased processing/write speed over the E-300 are more than I initially thought when reading the specs.

    Heee... I got approval from missus to go ahead to buy it liao... now waiting for it to arrive on our shores.
