I stumbled upon mu-43.com doing a Google and must say it is a very nice web site with tons of great information. I look forward to sharing in the fun with all of you.

I came to u4/3rds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic 4/3rds cameras. My original goal for wanting a u4/3rds camera was so I could use my collection of Leica & CV M and LTM lenses. I bought the EPL1 because it was a u4/3rds camera that finally came into my price range, after all I really only wanted the body. What a surprise I was in for. It has the best image quality of any 4/3rds camera I own. After using it for a couple months, mostly with the kit lens and some Leica lenses, I decided to add the Oly 17/2.8. What a dandy little lens that is. It stays on the EPL1 99% of the time now and is such a compact package it goes just about everywhere with me.

I posted a pic of my EPL1 with my 1932 vintage Leica 73mm f/1.9 Hektor lens attached in the "Show your adapted cameras" thread. That's almost 80 years of backwards compatibility! I love the EPL1, but you probably already figured that out.:wink:

Bokeh Diem,

Great handle!

Thank you for the welcome and the comment on my EPL1/73 Hektor image post. What a drag that you missed on the C-mount Hugo Meyer lens (truly a rae find) but hang in there. It took me years of searching to finally find a Leica 73mm f/1.9 Hektor in reasonable condition at a price I could actually afford.

Oh yes, Geedy Lee, another great Canadian performer and fabulous guitarist.

Don, love your introduction! Welcome aboard and glad you stumbled in.:wink:
BBW,

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I must confess I am a camera junkie first, and an amateur photographer second i.e., I probably won't have a lot of gorgeous photos in my gallery but still I will expand it as I get more time under my belt with my EPL1.

For now my gallery will be more equipment oriented since that is my first love (the history of cameras and using vintage lenses on my EPL1.. or any digital camera fascinates me). Be that as it may, I have taken some nice photos in my time and will post some to my gallery here, but that assumes it is OK to post photos not taken with a u4/3rds camera (I must confess that I was so excited to find this web site that I registered after only speed reading the Terms of Service Agreement... and I am not a very good speed reader:tongue:) Most of them, for now, will have been taken with vintage Leica lenses adapted to everything from an old (old is subjective in the digital age) Canon D30 (not 30D) year 2000 vintage 3.1mp DSLR to my current love, the EPL1. Some will simply be what I have seen in everyday life, regardless of the camera used (that pertains to my older photos). New photos will be taken with my EPL1 or updates in u4/3rds cameras as they mature.

I hope that is acceptable here. If not I will modify my gallery to reflect only u4/3rds camera use if that is required for compliance with the ToS.

I have added some photos of the "once-in-a-lifetime" ride I took in a WWII B17 bomber, which reminds me... in too many forums folks seem reluctant to post pics of their self, something I have never understood. To me it is always wonderful to not only put a name with a face, but to put that face in the perspective of their everyday life's experience, and so I post.

Don

G'day Don. Welcome man, to the elite club of Photographers!:rofl:

I'm gonna check out your aircraft shots now as i enjoy a bit of WW2 history and the like. Favourite WW2 pilots of mine are Douglas Bader and Jim Wallace. Incredible stories.
