    hi all,

    got an E-P3 a couple of months back, and have been lurking ever since.

    have never enjoyed taking photos so much, and am becoming somewhat obsessed!

    thanks for having me.

    I'm in Surry Hills, Sydney.

    Typo - the 20 is the Panasonic f1.7

    Got a good deal on the camera at Digidirect Bondi Junction - was cheaper than US prices. Got the 45 while i was in NY, the 20 from bhphoto online, and the 14 from ebay.

    Welcome to the forums. Same case, from New York. I also got an E-P3, and I am becoming obsessed. Do you post your pictures somewhere? Would you mind sharing them?

    I am so jealous you live in such a beautiful city!

    Welcome again, and nice to meet you!

    G'day from RADelaide!

    I'm still obsessively using my E-PL1. Just sold off my e510 four thirds system and now exclusively Micro. Keeping an eye out for an E-P3 as my next purchase...

    Welcome aboard, it's all good.

    WTF is this vegemite stuff people keep mentioning? Sounds like a kind of bug.

    Just found out the other day that according to the 2011 UN Human Development Index that Australia comes in No.2 as the best place in the world to live, with No.1 being Norway.

    Revealed: The world's happiest places to live | News.com.au

    And what is even more interesting is that Melbourne is the best city in the world to live.

    I think we aussies are pretty blessed.

    I had some on my bread for lunch:smile: Maybe this is what makes australia the best place to live.

    From Wikipedia: "Vegemite is made from used brewers' yeast extract, a by-product of beer manufacturing, and various vegetable and spice additives. It is salty, slightly bitter, and umami or malty – similar to beef bouillon. The texture is smooth, and the product is a paste. It is not as intensely flavoured as British Marmite and it is less sweet than the New Zealand version of Marmite."

    Vegemite used to be regarded as iconically Australian, hence the jokes here, but lost some of that lustre when the company making it was bought out by Kraft.

    Count me as one Australian who could never stand the stuff.

    For the record, I'm a fan of Vegemite.
