Upload & Sell: On
I'm really starting to like this body. I'm also learning my way around the quirks and which JPEG scenarios (or RAW) are good for which situations.
I'm *also* starting to see how people like street shooting - it has a nice appeal to it, trying to catch interesting scenes or expressions.
Took a trip with the family to Santa Fe, NM (first time there for us) and it's a nice little town, lots of art colleges and people with cameras, so I didn't feel too "strange" snapping shots (still shy though, but at least the XE1 is small and pretty unobtrusive)
Strangely, I've found it nearly impossible to get a sharp shot at 1/30s using OIS, no matter what the focal length. I have no idea why. I'll have to do more testing, but that might be my "danger" shutter speed. that is matching my heart beat or something crazy like that.

Tell me if the 1280px versions are too much, I'll have to re-export them to 1024x from LR -- Flickr's downscaling adds too much "crunchy" unfortunately.
