    Hey guys!

    Just want to introduce myself - i bought a silver E-PL2 twin lens kit for my girlfriend while i'm away working in another city. I "accidentally" opened it up to muck around with it and now i have to say, i'm kinda hooked!

    She wanted a new camera, but i denied her the right to get a P&S - i said it has to be something that's good and looks good! She agreed on the looking good part and i convinced her she'd make a good photographer.

    It was really a no brainer ending up with an E-PL2 - nothing looks this good for this price. The NEX might take just as good photos (or better) but it doesn't look like a cool camera!

    Anyway, this is fast becoming a long post so i better end it up here. I didnt think i'd like the camera as much as i am. There's something fun about it, and it definitely looks the part.

    ... Howdy guys!

    good question lol! i think i'll return this one to her and get a smaller PEN for myself. sounds weird but i already have a 5d2 and x100 so want something more pocketable. Maybe an EPM1 for myself, hmm i'd miss the retro EP and EPL looks though!

    and as for vegemite... no comment :tongue:

    Thanks!

    Its such a good looking camera IMO. Cant wait for the Pana X series 14-42mm, might be a good time for me to jump in.

    In the mean time, "his & hers"
