    Hello all

    Long time lurker and non poster on this site- love all the information and images that I find here.

    Sold my Canon EOS400D a year or so ago and picked up a Lumix G3, and now have that, the 14-42 kit lens, a F1.7 20mm Pancake Lens, and soon to own my most desired 7-14mm UWA Panasonic Lens later this week!

    Love my G3, hoping to upgrade to G6 in the new year.

    What else? Live in Gourock, Scotland. Work as a firefighter, married a year, and I'm hitting the big 40 this year.

    Oh, and as well as that, I'm becoming a Dad in the same month as hitting 40, so it's all happening!

    Hoping to get into posting on here as much as possible, and looking for as much help and suggestions as anyone can be bothered with!

    Here's a few pics all with the G3- all comments welcome :thumbup:

    Welcome to one of the best forums on the net! I'm another Scot, but that's where the similarities end: I live in Dortmund, I'm retired and well beyond 60!

    Not my real name, but I'm a big Connery fan :)

    Sorry to hear your father won't see his grandchild - I'm lucky enough that my father is still here, at 91!

    Welcome!

    I have a G5, a GX1 (which is a G3 basically) and a GH1 I've just picked up for very little to use for video.

    You are going to love the 7-14mm! This set of mine was shot entirely with that lens on my G5 and I could just as easily have shot it on a G3: Megalith of Madness - a set on Flickr

    I thought your name was familiar! I have WAY too many contacts and don't visit other photostreams enough but I will have a look at yours later, and thanks.

    Hi from West Lothian and welcome. Some of your Flickr contacts are also mine :smile:

    Was your photo with the bottle of Singha taken in Phuket?

    Think you're on my Flickr as well Glenn!

    No, it was taken in Thong Nai Pan Noi , Koh Phangan in an amazing little burger shack called Handsome Sandwiches.

    Brilliant place.
