Hi, I'm a new member.

Have Nikon DSLR, Canon FD and Leica SL systems but am waiting for Lumix GF1 to start with for the new digital era.

Freedom at last! One body [M 4/3] for all eyes [i.e. lenses]...ok, of course with adapters.

I'm 71 year old...it's not too late, it isn't?

From Florida.

Welcome!
I will be 70 next week - it's never too late. I also came to m4/3 from a Nikon DSLR and film background, with both the GF1 and the G1- love them. These are wonderful cameras, easy to use and even easier to carry around. Here is a shot I took with my G1 the other day.

Welcome aboard. I'm 61 for the time being.
This new m4/3 format is made for us older folks.
Smaller footprint, more convenient etc.
Enjoy and if ya have any questions, let me know. I'm always around...

Welcome and Hello from Snowy Scotland. I hope you have a great time with m43 and all your lenses! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it, and maybe seeing a photo or two:)

Hi Mandily
Welcome. With the GF1 you not only get a great image taker - you will find that it's simple, intuitive controls are familiar to a DSLR user. Plus it's fun.

By the way, M4/3 is for kids too. I'm about to turn 47 and enjoy the reduced size and weight too.:smile:

When the camera arrives, if there are any questions please visit here. You won't find a friendlier place.

Hi Guys,
Thank you so much for your welcomes. Got GF1 and Macro 45 / f2.8 recently.

Went to Dade City, FL, for Kumquat Festival and got more than satisfied customer from the results of photo shots.

The SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3.2 SE is amazing for RAW processing. Added Photoshop for framing when necessary.

Here are two samples, the first is Camellia flower found at one office's plant fence and the second Kumquat Oranges at a vendor.

Great shots - I particularly like the Camelia. The colour is exquisite. Glad that you're having a good time with your GF1. I must admit that I've never eaten a Kumquat. What's the taste like?

All the best,

Colin

Welcome! You'll find this is a great forum. In addition to having people from all over the world, you'll also find people from your neck of the woods . . . St. Pete here.

(Love looking at all those snow pictures, huh?)

Hi!
Thank you for your kind words. There are two categories of Kumquat: sweet and sour, and since is rather small both are eaten whole [with skin altogether]. The taste is exactly like regular oranges. But when eaten whole, the tanginess of the skins is felt strongly.

Cheers from Florida.
