Nashville, TN, that is. The first camera I ever held was an old Brownie, as a pre-teen. No one told me I had to advance the film in between exposures, and there was no mechanism to force me to do so…a very discouraging first experience. Fast forward several years, and I was enthralled with the new Olympus OM system. The OM-1, followed by an OM-2n and an OM-2sp, were my companions through a number of years, including a number of years living in west Africa and in France. Heavy work and family responsibilities then kept me out of photography about the time digital was beginning to come on strong. I woke up one day and realized that I needed to move into digital, but could not afford the kind of equipment I wanted. I went through a couple of Sony digicams, including the 707, which had a form factor that I still miss. Finally, back into Olympus with the E-300 two lens kit, and the 14-54 (love that lens). Unfortunately, by that time, I had already sold the remaining OM kit. I hated to see it go, especially the 85mm/2, but it had to be done. The E-300 and lenses will follow their path to new ownership, however, in order to repair the damage to the budget that the E-PL1 has caused. But I may hang onto the 14-54…. Anyway, the kit currently is the E-PL1 with 14-42 and EVF, and the 14-150, which I really enjoy. Some day when I work up the courage, I'll submit a few, but am in no hurry. I've been reading on this site for some time, and referred to it frequently when trying to decide on the replacement for the E-300 (the candidates were E-620, G1, and E-PL1).
