    Hello guys,

    I jumped ship from Pentax a couple of weeks ago and purchased the Panny G3 + Sigma 30/2.8 . I am particularly interested in landscape/animal/portrait and street photography. I am not very experienced but I have done a few paid assignments (wedding and concert photography). I am Norwegian but live in Sweden with my wife and two kids. We also have a dog (Estrela Mountain Dog).

    Looking forward to learn more about the m43 system. :2thumbs:

    Have a nice day!
    Kind regards

    Welcome to the forum! If you want a slightly wider landscape lens the 14mm is a very reasonably priced lens. :smile:

    Thanks guys!

    Revbob, The 14mm is indeed very inexpensive now so it's a good time to buy it.
    I have also considered the Sigma 19mm, but it's a bit close to the 30mm. For some reason I can't find an inexpensive telephoto prime lens in the 60-100mm range. Quite weird.

    Kind regards

    Welcome and cool dog! Share some pictures of he/she in the "for the dog lovers" thread. I'd suggest picking up an adapter for any of the old legacy glass (Pentax, Olympus, Nikon, Minolta, etc.). Since we have a 2x crop factor with m4/3 a common and cheap 50mm becomes an effective 100mm.
