    Hi everyone,

    I just thought I would introduce myself. I am civil engineering tech at an consulting engineering firm in Green Bay. I'm interested in getting into m43 photography because I'm tired of poor quality images from compact cameras. I have used all kinds of compact digital cameras over the years and need something better.

    My first digital camera was a Kodak DC200 with a large 4MB card, it died of unknown causes and ate 4 "AA" batteries in less than 50 shots. Several unimportant cameras later I had a Panasonic TZ1 with 7 spare batteries which was great in good light but died of water & sand damage at a beach but survived Africa. During a trip to Patagonia I lost my next travel zoom, the Fuji F300EXR, which fell down a crack in a glacier never to be found again. No idea if the camera produced great images since it was brand new on that vacation. My current 'rugged' Canon SD1200 is very pocketable but doesn't produce the quality I'm looking for, has no user controls & is due for replacement.

    Unrelated items: I have traveled quite a bit over the last 10 years so if you want to know more about the Netherlands, England, Kenya, Tanzania, Argentina, Chili, Canada or the US please let me know.

    Thanks,
    J. Hosper

    Any of you know a physical store that sells m43 besides Best Buy? I haven't found any around GB.

    Ritz Camera in Milwaukee has the Olys and the GH2
    Art's Camera's in Milwaukee only has the PEN last time I looked. m4/3 is poorly represented in MKE
