    Five years ago Olympus introduced the first OM-D E-M1

    I still use my original E-M1 along with my newer mkII. I also owned an E-M5 mkII, but sold it and kept the E-M1 when I bought my E-M1 mkII. I shoot mainly longer lenses and fast moving subjects, and the original E-M1 can still deliver, surprisingly well in fact, along side my mkII. My Olympus 300mm is almost permanently attached to my mkII, as these two were built to work in complete harmony. I have zero desire for any full-frame camera from any manufacturer, as what I shoot lends itself amazing well to the m4/3 world.

    Impressions of the Lumix G9

    Welcome to m4/3, and I used to shoot with the Panasonic bodies up through the GH3, but switched full-time to the Olympus side once I picked up the E-M1. The Panasonic has a much simpler, easy to navigate menu system than the Olympus. I have not used the G9, but I really like some of the features it has. I would be curious to see if it is as fast as my E-M1 mkII for moving subjects, such as birds in flight. I will be watching to see what you can get out of it.

    Chris, I second the motion, great to see your work again. I can imagine -25C as I live in Minnesota, but makes it no less daunting. Gorgeous images!

    Vivion, You are correct, I work over the contrast for some of these in a "secret sauce" I use as a plug-in. As I said up front, I like a little different look in my shots, especially when there are so many other really good photographers at the same event, I like mine to look "different."

    Alan, Many thanks, and happy to hear you are pleased with my work from that week. The Raptor shot is one of my all-time favorites, and happy to hear I am not alone!

    Thanks Dallas, the Raptor is truly a vapor generating beast.

    And sometimes you are in the right place, have the camera set up correctly and then get lucky. This is an F-22 "Raptor" catching some nice vapor with the burners lit in a hard turn. E-M1 mkII and Olympus 300mm Pro

    I have done a few shoots with aircraft owners, and I try and keep checking to see the look on their face when we are shooting around their aircraft. When I get a look such as this, I know we are still good to go. Olympus E-M1 mkI and Olympus 17mm f1.8

    The ladies asked me to set up a shoot with a classic airplane from the 1940s. I found a willing owner of this gorgeous Howard DGA-15P who consented to allow us to shoot with his pride and joy. Olympus E-M1 mk11 and Olympus 25mm f1.8

    The leader of the Warbird Living History Group and one of the ladies from the group were drafted to paint on nose and tail art for this C-47. This is Kevin Wisniewski applying the new name "Hairless Joe" to the Yankee Air Museum's C-47. E-M1 mkiI and Olympus 12-100

    Oshkosh is not all about the airplanes. One of the highlights of my week is spending time with the Warbird Living History Group, a group that actually camps in the warbird area, and they dress and live the part of history. The work the ladies go through, especially for their hair styles, is incredible to see. In the past few years I have become good friends with many of them, and we have been able to share more than a few special moments, including this one I set up and captured with Shane and Bryana.

    USAF "Heritage Flight" with an F-16 "Viper" and a pair of P-51D "Mustangs". This is uncropped, any closer and I would have missed this shot since I was shooting with the Olympus 300mm Pro on my E-M1 mkII
