    hello all. i'm new to m43, ep3 and was referred here from another forum. i was trying to decide on whether to purchase the oly 17 or the panasonic 20, the photos here with the pany secured my decision.

    started out on film about 20 years ago with a canon ae1 and ae1p.

    took head shots for child models.

    photographed 2 weddings.

    stopped photographing for a while.

    jumped back into photography going digital;something i said i would never do.

    first dslr olym 520, 410, 620, e30, e1 (still have), OMN2 (still have). canon g10, canon g12 (still have). recently sold my e30, needed lighter gear to carry because of car accident and no desire to lug heavy gear around. just got my ep3 last friday and now i'm buying her just a few outfits.

    i will photograph anything, but love landscapes and street photographer is interesting.

    i suck at PP, but i try.

    love to write (humor).

    never leave home w/o a camera, i feel naked if i must.

    Welcome Natural Woman,

    You will find this forum is full of friendly, willing and informed members all willing to help make new members welcome.

    I think you have made a great choice in the Panny 20, it is a superb lens and mins spends 99% of it's time on my GF1.

    Enjoy the forum and the people
