Another close encounter with one of the neighborhood squirrels, same tree...heck, maybe the same a week ago.

This time I had the Nikon D2X & 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 VR II. The 200mm focal length on the Nikon's APS-C sensor giving me the same field of view as the 150mm lens on the Four Thirds Olympus: roughly the same as a 300mm lens on a full frame camera.

Though physically larger than the 4/3rds sensor in the E-5, the Nikon's sensor has the same 12MP resolution and is much older, dating to 2004, six years earlier than the launch of the Olympus.

It still takes a pretty nice picture, though, especially with a good lens on it, and the 18-200 VR II is a very good walking around lens for a crop-sensor Nikon.
