    Hello to everyone here,

    A few words to introduce myself. I am in the UK in the rural East Midlands where civilisation has passed us by and we still ride horses and draw water from wells :eek:
    I have owned a Panasonic G1 with the two kit lense since april 09 and a GF1 + EVF & 20mm f/1.7 for a couple of months. I have recently added the 45mm Leica macro and the 7-14mm f/4. Until recently I was also using a Sony Alpha A700 dSLR but after many sleepless nights I have sold all my dSLR kit and committed myself to :43:
    I know many users use 'legacy' lens with their :43: kit but I was attracted to 'small & light' and therefore will stick to OE equipment.

    I look forward to reading your opinions and viewing your pictures.

    Yes, welcome badly and please plan on hosting some of us in your neck of the woods because civilization isn't all it's cracked up to be, as you well know.:biggrin:

    G'day Badly. Welcome to the Forum and you'll find it home here. One thing i'd like to know, why did you give yourself such sad name?:confused:

    That part of England sounds like an awesome place for a young aussie to come and see sometime soon.
    I have a GF1 as my camera and still researching around for a good price on an EVF. Sun can get very bright around here.

    Good to see ya,
