Sri Lankan Buddhists In Their Zeal To Denigrate All Other Religions Will Say The Cutest Things.

by Anura Guruge

I got this in an e-mail this morning.


Click to ENLARGE and have a chuckle over.

Made my day.

Yes, yes, yes. Of course we had the World’s worst elected Female Prime Minister (my Aunty Bandaranaike). But this was classic.

The IRONY of “Pope Joan” would be lost on this writer — who, if you hadn’t guessed, is a female.

I guess she has NO IDEA, though 6% of the population is actually Catholic (and we do have a genuine, under-80 Cardinal), that the Catholic Church has no female ministers.

Of late I have started to blame my now deceased adopted father for much of this. No wonder he was so anxious to pluck me out, from the education system he advocated, to get a ‘better’ education in the West. Another irony.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II Delayed? Has Canon With EOS M5 Already Stolen The Mirrorless Thunder?

by Anura Guruge

Click here for the full, original “DPReview” post
with entire Olympus Press Release.


Well the much anticipated Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II, as was expected, has been announced at PhotoKina 2016. But the wording on Olympus’s press release is curious. It says: “Olympus Announces The Development Of Its New Flagship Camera …”

“Announces The Development” …

Claims that the camera will come LATER this year, i.e., 2016.

Does that mean December 2016 — the Canon M5 slated to be available in the first week on December.

The specs, as I always expected them to be, are FORMIDABLE. It looks like it will be one heck of a camera.

But, in the end, push-comes-to-shove, the Olympus despite all of its bells and whistles is a Micro Four-Thirds (4/3″) and the Canon M5 is an APS-C — and sensor size does matter. I might, however, be TEMPTED to wait to see what the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II can really deliver.


Enlarge and stare at. From “” — with THANKS.
