    I've been sneaking around the site for over a year but have not posted/contributed anything but figured it was about time and I might as well start with an introduction..

    I've been seriously interested in photopgraphy since 2005 when I got a Minolta 7D camera. Prior to that I had some film cameras and also a Minlolta SLR, hence the Minolta D-SLR.

    Until two years ago I had a Sony/Minolta kit with quite a few lenses and used their mid-range APS-C bodies, Minolta 7D --> Sony A700 --> Sony A55 --> Sony A77. I still keep this kit as I still like the "feel" of a larger body and it also work significantly better for some stuff, notably things requiring continous autofocus.

    Two years ago I got into m4/3 with a E-PL1 (w/14-42 kit). I quickly picked up some legacy lenses, mainly some Minolta and Konica glass (including the very nice Rokkor 58/1.2). Now I've also got a E-PL3, OMD and some nice native m4/3 glass and is quite happy with the kit I've got.

    Last year we made a picture wall at home. Basically a painted wall where one can put up prints with magnets (no need to frame them). I put up around 20 prints with my favourites from the year before and I noted that all prints except for one came from the E-PL1 (only the one, the largest, came from my Sony kit). So I'm really happy with the IQ i get out of the m4/3 system.

    I really like this forum as it's really friendly place with a good tone in the discussions. Now when i've introduced myself I look forward to be more involved in the discussions than I've been in the past!

    Cheers //Niklas
