    Hi, great site, wealth of information

    I just bought a 14-42 lens on ebay & the seller put me onto you guys.

    (I've also got a 40-150 and a 17-2.8 lens and spare battery on the way)

    I used to love my Olympus SLR's OM1 OM2 & OM10, so sad to see them go with the demise of film. For the past few years I've been using Panasonic Lumix FZ30 FZ50 & TZ10 which have turned me into a lazy photographer, played with a few Nikon & Canon digital SLR's but never liked them enough to buy one, then almost wet myself when I saw the announcement of the OMD.

    Now after seeing this forum & finding all about the camera & about all the adaptors for old lenses, I'm so spewing that I got rid of my old Zuiko 35mm lens collection.

    I only just bought my OMD (with 12-50 kit lens) a few days ago & keep thinking its by far the best camera I've owned. :2thumbs:
    Still got lots to learn but I'm stoked .

    Welcome to the forum... there's a wealth of information here.

    I'm a recent convert to µ43, and I'm using the OMD EM-5 as well, it's a great camera.

    Thanks for making me feel at home here

    No Problems, can do, House is on the Market ,(if it dosent sell we are renting it out,) We are going on 12 month road trip by Landrover & Off road Caravan, heading off Feb 2013 return date = hopefully never. The OMD is going to get a workout.

    a previous trip here

    noting special about the images, as I said before I have become a lazy photographer, now I have the OMD I have some control back & I promise to do better :)

    Hi and welcome, nice to see that the E-M5 has got you inspired! :thumbup:

    If you haven't sold all of your OM lenses already, you might want to reconsider for a moment. There are lots of people that use these and other legacy lenses on their µ4/3 cameras with great pleasure and results.

    Welcome mate! Sorry to hear about your Zuiko collection. It would have been a fine fit to the OMD!
