    That Chris is something to be proud ^5. You are famous to all your µ4/3 buds ... and after you buy us all congratulatory beers ... the good thing is that you'll still be famous.

    wow i really dont know what to say. im stoked for this little achievement, but im overwhelmed by your nice words and support!. it really means a lot to me. like literally!. this is a really nice community-group of people! :drinks::drinks:

    I would love to buy a round for all Gary!. :drinks: In fact, as crazy as it might sound, we should really try to organize a meetup once a year in a different place around the world and just get MU-43.com together for a nice photo walk an bunch of beers. would be awesome right?.

    hopefully RT lets see. im enjoying this little "smily face" in my book!. but yes, lets see what future will bring!.

    hahaha im glad you ask Bhup, if you read the interview they asked what piece of gear i cant live without or something like that and there i mention quite subtle that i had another camera to my OMD as a backup and missed what could have been a great shot. so there you have it. thats the X100s in there! :biggrin:

    Thanks Margaret! appreciate it!. and Yes!, lets do it! Mu-43 year meetup! :drinks:

    Congrats man! The question is though, will you still be famous in 2018, after all the m4/3 cameras have vanished?

    Well done Chris
    I can imagine how great it must feel
    Great idea about the get together
    Perhaps localised events should be something to be enthusiastically pursued
