Oh wow. These Sparrow pics are all beautiful. I especially like the ones of the female; she chose such photogenic perches and poses.
I was considering an E-1 at the time. A lass on another forum had one given as a gift from her husband. She
never ever posted a picci that was actually in focus though - neither with her E-1 or any other camera as I recall.
I still have and still use my original 2003 *istD, a gift from my
husband. I used it with an old Tamron 28-300 and I think I've probably had some of my best pics off that combination.
