    hi,

    Photography is my hobby (next to bicycles). I simply shoot as I travel, walk around the city, bike around, etc ….
    I am Polish, born in Gdańsk, now live in Warsaw.

    I was looking for small and portable side kick for my Canon 5D (mark I) and after annoying experience with Fuji x100 AF , I decided to try m4/3. So recently I started my journey with with E-PL3 + P14 and O45. And I love it.
    I will probably soon upgrade to E-PM2 and later try also OMD, perhaps already in new version in a few months.

    5D is starting to catch dust now :). But I think I will keep it anyway, perhaps with 85 1.8 only, for special occasions. ;-).

    I was reading the forum for a few weeks now and it seems to be really great community and amazing source of knowledge and experience.

    Looking forward to read, sometimes write and share some pictures.

    Cheers,
    Mateusz

    Welcome to the forum! I kept my 40D for awhile, but I found that it was not being used so I sold it. :smile:

    Welcome, Mateusz! I live in Dortmund, where there are tens of thousands with Polish ancestry. Not to mention Borussia Polonia, with Lewandowski, Blaszykowski and Piszcsek (I hope I spelt those properly!).

    This is a wonderfully helpful forum, enjoy.

    I've only been to Warsaw (on business), but I would like to visit Gdansk and Cracow some time.

    hi,

    Thank you all for welcoming !
    I will soon start some thread with pictures from Polish cities and countryside or post some pics in opened threads, already posted some in P 14/2.5 set.

    BigTam,
    spelling was almost perfect. and Borussia was really lucky yesterday in overtime :).
    and sure both Cracow and Gdansk are worth visiting.

    Cheers,
    Mateusz
