    Hi everyone

    I am totally new to m4/3, I bought my first Oly device, a brand new e-p5 with the nice 9-18 mm lens a month ago. I am also waiting for a delivery of an used Zuiko 75mm :)

    I am very happy to join this community

    I am running a website all devoted to fossils, my big passion. Tired of google translator, I am trying hard looking for buddies that help me with articles in good English

    HOME

    here a sample of my website page in English

    The Bürgermeister-Müller Museum (in ENGLISH)

    I am totally hooked by photographing fossils in every respect. My old Canon 30D gave me some problems, so the idea to switch to Olympus m43, because of the size.

    I found this wonderful community while I was in the need to sell all my canon equipment in order to finance other m43 lens. Zuiko 8mm fish-eye is my first choice, also I am praying the Olympus Gods to build a bright-long lens human-priced and slightly better than the 75-300II, so I will be all set with my lens needs

    Cheers

    Welcome Nando : big spender! ;)

    Your fossil page : the coloured borders are SO 1980's, can you make them grey or earthy and all the same colour?

    Yes, I was a pretty big spender during the golden times, good bucks have slipped from my wallet to the cargo sized Canon's pockets.

    Right now I like to think I had my e-p5, 9-18 and 75 for free. I was able to sell most of my Canon equipment, so I am up in the trade.

    I am selling the last canon devices: 30D, 70-300 DOIS, Tokina 10-17, anular flash light, converters etcetc, for financing the 8mm and maybe part of the next-to-make zoom

    The second question is much tough to answer, thanks for your suggestion, but I lost too many sleep-time hours to make the photo frames for changing them now and for uploading them again on the website, maybe in the future... come on, I am an old guy, the 80s were my childhood :eek::biggrin:
