Thanks for your comments, Moose. Others have pointed out something
similar, and it is true. But, and perhaps AG and I are the only
disciples, there is something distinctive about the Kodak CCD sensor
that makes its images rise to the top of the pile. My E-1 won't be
abandoned any time soon.

Sometimes all advances with cameras and lenses don't really make

of this bloom yesterday, I looked at one from a year earlier, and
liked it better. So, I took the old Oly E-1 and the older Leica
Elmarit-R 60 Macro out this morning and shot the same bloom. To me,
the colors just blow me away! It's a shame that the old Kodak CCD
sensor couldn't keep up with the demands for higher ISO speeds.
I'm not going to say there is no difference. Although that might be a
good way to get a visit from AG, his mood could be a problem. ;-)
OTOH, there is so much difference in the light that I think it, not
the sensor system, accounts for most of the difference you see.
