    I haven't seen "threw" used in place of "through" in a long time.

    And it's so shitty, DPreview didn't even review it

    ok before anything else, how does your job help you with olympus? If you get a considerable discount it might be worth considering

    Granted 4/3 system has never proved equal to either Nikon's or canon's offerings, but its still a capable system in its own
