    Hi, I'm a new user of this forum and a new user of micro 4/3. I've used always a "traditional" reflex: I've used Nikon D70, Nikon D200 and Nikon D300, with lens as 12-24mm, 18-70, 50mm 1.8, 180mm 2.8, 80-200mm 2.8; but for some years I have problems in the neck and started to leave the equipment at home, losing the fun of taking pictures. I tried to buy a compact camera (Lumix TZ10) but it was a big disappointment, especially because of the inability to shoot in raw, but also for the small size of the sensor ...
    So I tried to buy a GX1 used, with a 14-42 lens and the viewfinder LVF-2 (the viewfinder is essential for me!) And I used this summer. The result was very satisfactory. Now I am looking for best lenses, especially wide-angle (the 14mm is too little for me, I want a 9mm, but they cost too much!).
    Sorry for my english ....

    Welcome u171173 (interesting name)!

    I look forward to seeing some of your work. I LOVE my Olympus MZD 9-18mm and would thoroughly recommend it.
