    This seems to be a nice Forum with lot's of knowledge.....thought I'd introduce myself here.

    I live in Bavaria and was till the end of 2012 a passionate Nikon Shooter (last with D700, 24-70f2.8, 70-200f2.8, 85f1.4.......). But I noticed that I didn't like lugging this heavy backpack around anymore. So I started in m43 at the 01/2012 with a GX1.........was a nice little cam, but somehow I missed the adjustable AutoISO function plus IBIS seems a good idea (considering my progressing Age :wink:)
    So I switched the GX1 with a Olympus E-M5.......what a difference!

    the IQ was comparable (if not better) than my D700, and the little lenses finally delivered. From here on the NikonGear wasn't used at all...so I sold it after Christmas :redface:

    Have been building up my m43 gear from there on, and am very happy with it. Only thing I really miss is the continuous-focus-performance of the D700 :rolleyes: but I hope for future Olympus OM-D Models to take care of that with on sensor PDAF :biggrin:

    I'm doing year-long-projects for the 5th year now.

    I spent two years in Bayern while in the US Army- beautiful place.

    Your photos are masterful and well thought out.

    Servus & Willkommen :drinks:

    As you traded in a complete system with a couple of lenses: I am curious as to which µ43 lenses you got.

    Nice pictures you are having there. Do you follow a specific theme each year or is it a "one-pic-per-day" project?
