    Rod, I gotta say, you're in for an adventure. And "google is your friend." There's a wealth of info on the net, just try googling for stuff like "beginner photography tutorial" and you're set.

    You guys are too much. At the price point quoted, weather sealing (by Oly's standards) would be toooo much. How are they going to discriminate their flagship if they put weathersealing on everything?...

    Given the length of the exposures, I would guess it's heat-noise from the sensor. It happens frequently in certain sensors on long exposures, and is usually worse in the same place in each frame,...

    Don, I agree that for that use, the kit lens is probably sufficient; if you want to go up a step, I'd suggest the 14-54mm, since it's sharper and faster, but in studio settings, things depends more...
