Nice!  You're clearly a man of powerful thirsts.

Here I am, looking a little like Frankenstein's monster surounded by
torch-wielding villagers, as my own camera was turned on me recently:

I think this picture also captures some of the characteristic
strengths and weaknesses of the micro-four-thirds cameras in dimmish
light, as it's one of those Cathy had in her hand to take this.
There's a kind of chalky/mealy quality to cartain pictures coming from
that sensor which I don't see in pictures from the M9 or a big Canon.
Maybe if were cleverer I'd know how to process it out somehow, unless
it's mostly a pure limitation in dynamic range.  It's not a terrible
look, it has its appeal sometimes, but it seems characteristic.

Anyway, I bet we all have examples of getting fixed in the sights of
our own instruments, some even pretty successful....
