    Hello all,

    I forgot to introduce myself before making the posts I did :) Anyways, I'm Sam from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

    I'm a Telecomm specialist by trade. I've been into digital photography since 2000 & my first digicam was the Canon Elph S100. I love photography and take my camera everywhere :)

    I shoot the occasional professional gig, but mostly for fun (I shoot for money to offset my gear spending). I use a Canon 5D-II & 7D for serious stuff and now use the m4/3 system for fun. My Flickr:

    I hope to learn and share tips n' tricks of this fun art from/with everyone here.

    Cheers,

    Sammy.

    Welcome to the forum Sammy! What m4/3 stuff are you using? What types of pro photography do you do? Weddings, portraits, landscape, all of the above? Welcome and enjoy! Look forward to seeing your work and getting tips from you!

    Howdy & thx for the warm welcome! I shoot everything that you've mentioned. For Pro gigs, mostly weddings & portraits (no landscapes). For fun, I love shooting urban fragments and outdoor portraits involving strobist-like setups.

    I have an Olympus E-P2 w/ 14-42 kit lens + Panasonic 20/1.7. I'm expecting delivery of the 45 Elmarit t'rrow. I also need a fast aperture MF lens for portraits, so looking into various CV lenses: 35/1.4, 40/1.4, 35/1.2 & 50/1.1. Cheers.

    I just ordered the CV 35/1.4. Should hopefully get it by the end of the week. Super excited!
