    Hi everyone.

    I've been lurking on this site for months and thought it was high time to register and say hello. It's a great site and I've recommended it to many a fellow enthusiast!

    First a bit about me I guess - when I was a kid I used to envy my Dad's camera, a lovely Olympus OM-1, so much so in fact that he picked up a cheapo OM-10 for me to start using at a tender age. Years later, when digital cameras started to become readily available and second-hand SLR's appeared in their hundreds on eBay every day, I got myself an OM-2n and a few prime lenses for next to nothing, and I loved it!

    Years later still, keen to join the world of digital photography, I made the silly mistake of abandoning it and purchased a Panasonic DMC-TZ5 compact point'n'shoot affair. A good camera yes, for what it is, but it seemed to stop me taking photographs. It would get thrown into my bag if I was going travelling somewhere, but I would hardly use it. It just didn't inspire me.

    Thankfully, along came the OM-D :smile: Maybe I'm just an OM bore but since getting one last year I'm quite the budding enthusiast once more, and my modest collection of old OM lenses are finally seeing the light of day again :smile:

    I'm very much looking forward to using this site to further my knowledge and skills, and hopefully sharing some of my results with you :2thumbs:

    See you in there!

    Don't the gloves make it hard to work the small buttons?

    Haha :cool: No, but it's a great song!

    Unfortunately it's a nickname that's stuck because 1. I have large hands and 2. I'm really clumsy.

    Perfect attributes for a photographer I'm sure you'll agree :smile:
