    newcomer

    Hi,
    I'm new in this forum and I would like to indroduce myself:
    I'm Mike, living in Huntsville, AL and converted from Canon to Olympus 4/3.
    Main reason was weight and the white color of the L-lenses and the arrogance of the Canon users in the different forums against other brands. I never found that in pure Olympus forums, maybe we know why we are here
    I'm now nearly complete with my equipment, the only thing I'm missing is really wide angle. I got spoiled by the combination 5D and Sigma 12-24mm, there is no 6-12mm for Oly available. The rest is easy: Nothing can beat the AF of the E-5 with 12-60 or 50-200, they are weather-sealed, tack sharp and a famous double zoom package. Combine those with a 8mm fisheye you got it all., that's my travelling kit. when I don't want to carry it all.
    I love the art filters, the dramatic is my favourite, here is a sample.
    Greetings,
    Mike

    Welcome to PR Mike - and Happy New Year! Looks like you made a good decision - with some nice equipment.

    I had to give up my Canon equipment a couple of years ago due to a back problem and could no longer carry around the heavy equipment. Those "L" lenses were hard to give up, but I have gotten comparable images with Olympus, and never looked back!

    I invested in the E-PL1 and love this camera and the fine lenses that I've invested in. I recently got the Olympus M Zuiko 9-18 as I needed a wide angle - it's a really nice lens IMO.

    I also found an E-620 at a great price to go with my favorite lens - the 50mm/f2. I tried it with the E-PL1 but it was too slow. Now it's glued to the E-620

    I love the image you posted. Beautiful shot. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Liz

    Hi to all,
    thank you for the warm welcome. You see me much more happier now, because I could get a "looks like new" used 7-14mm for $1050 from another forum. I got back my beloved wide angle. You may understand this when you see my favourite picture while I was shooting with true 12mm on my 5D.
    Mike
