I have received a few questions, doubts and curious remarks from readers asking if the uder-reviews I have posted here were paid advertisements from Olympus. My answer is NO, it was NOT a paid advertisement. Olympus Malaysia approached me with the loaned unit of E-5, and I had VERY limited time with it for 3 days only, and I did the shooting and review on my blog out of my own time, effort passion and love for Olympus. I did not expect anything in return. Nonetheless, the overwhelming positive response from everyone, everywhere is more than enough of a reward anyone could ask for !! I hope this clears up some misunderstandings.
I have to thank you ALL beautiful readers so, so much for putting in so many kind words in my previous entries pertaining to Olympus E-5 reviews !! Olympus Malaysia has heard your comments, and they have decided to give me the Olympus E-5 for one more run this coming weekend. If it was not for the overwhelming response in the forums everywhere in the world and the massive amount of comments to my review write-ups, this certainly would not happen.
A father's love. Olympus E-520 with 40-150mm F3.5-4.5
I shall be doing the same thing as I have done before, to fully concentrate on shooting. I will have the opportunity to bring the Olympus E-5 out of Kuala Lumpur this time, into other states, hence I am thrilled at the photo opportunities this weekend promises. I can only pray for fine and beautiful weather to add the finishing touch. I cannot wait !!
I will spend most of my time shooting, and making photographs happen throughout the weekend. The soonest I will be able to post anything up here would be on Sunday night (Malaysian time), and definitely I will be breaking down my user-experienced oriented review into multiple parts. Do come back and see what more this Olympus E-5 is capable of doing for us.
It has been a great pleasure and fulfilling experience using the Olympus E-5, and sharing my thoughts and photographs with all of you. I sincerely thank all of you for your superbly inspiring feedback and unexpectedly generous encouragements. I will do my best, with the Olympus E-5, this weekend.
