    Hiya,

    I've just picked up my first u4/3 - an EPL-1 :2thumbs: to augment my existing 4/3 kit.

    We are going to Europe later this year and I wanted something more appropriate for carrying around while sight-seeing. In the short time I have spent with it so far, I'm very pleased with the flexibility and quality of the EPL-1 as a 'lite' option. So much so, I have a VF-2 on the way :smile:

    Look forward to catching up with other members through the forum and galleries.

    Welcome from another Sydney-sider (from the Shire).

    Enjoy your PEN. I have never had so much fun with a camera as since I got my E-P1 and my photography is even half-decent some of the time now.

    Enjoy your trip and in the meantime, if you are interested in getting together with some other Sydney photographers from time to time, send me a message and I will put you on to a great local group.

    Cheers

    Peter

    For those that don't know, below is a Tassie (or Tasmanian) devil - Tasmanian Devil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Taken a couple of weeks ago at a local wildlife park (Gosford - is this far from you flash ??).
    Not strictly u4/3, actually taken with my E510 - last non-u4/3 I promise :smile:)
