Hello, I have just joined this forum. After much deliberataion I am currently in the market for an e-p2. I am sure I will love it and I am sure I will get a lot of knowledge from this great forum. I have owned several Olympus cameras over the years. Cheers from Geelong, Victoria

hello and welcome! I'm also a local native, from around the other side of the bay though!

I have an E-pl1 and would recommend it! if you were considering panasonic, i'd probably go a gf1 for similar body, or gh2 for the "latest and greatest"*

*to be contended

in short,
Welcome :)

Thank you for your kind welcome. To Kosta, - I did consider the Panasonics, but no built in IS with them. I will certainly look at the Pan 20mm f/1.7 though. Only today I have discovered a new edition of the e-p2 sporting a black retro 'F' lens cap and black 17mm lens to be released this month in Europe. May not come to Oz though and could be quite 'exxy'.

Welcome. There is a strong Australian presence here.

The retro Pen F style lens cap is cute. I think it is matched to a black version of the 17m lens. Don't know if it is available here or not.

Cheers

Peter

Hi Pamela,
another Aussie and Victorian here. I use a Panasonic G1, with 20mm, 14-45m, amd 45-200mm lenses. Spent 8 weeks housesitting near Geelong earlier this year, lovely city and beautiful scenery. Although it was winter I still got the camera out and took some beaut shots. Good luck with your purchase, I don't regret changing to mu43.
Cheers DUD

Welcome from sunny (well, not this week anyway) Queensland.

I'm on the Panasonic side of the fence, but my daughter is an E-PL1 owner. Both Panasonic and Olympus have much to recommend them -- you can't go to far wrong no matter what you decide.

Thank you again for the welcomes. Today I bought the e-p2 with the zoom. As I wait for it's arrival I will make a study of the wonderful posts here, so much to learn. I intend to mend my ways and take photos and not just be a collector of equipment. I have a shelf of lovely Minolta glass decreasing in value every day, very sad. I noticed a stunning sunflower photo in b & w here, to note but one, - so inspiring. Cheers, Pam
