    Hi there

    Love digital photography. No way do I consider myself anything beyond well informed beginner. Aftern countless trials with several cameras I have come to 2 major conclusions:

    a) Nothing beats CMOS like sensors when wanting to explore vivid and detailed photography (so point and shoot just does not cut it).

    b) Prefer the slimmer profile (lighter more compact) offered by micro 4 thirds....I am not patient enough to handle a Canon, Nikon, Sony or etc...full size DSLR...

    I purchased an E-PL2 by Olympus a few days ago. Loving it. Feels really natural to take photos with this device. Love the results.

    Cheers!

    Welcome, and hello from Scotland :smile: I feel like you - don't want to drag a DSLR around, and love the compactness and good IQ of m4/3. Hope you have lots of fun with your excellent camera!

    All the best,

    Colin

    You made a great choice for your camera. I think you'll be happy for a long time to come with it.

    Welcome!

    From what I know, CMOS is a sensor technology, not a size :) It does not matter much anyway, but if you get a little more serious about photo I thought it's worth mentioning.

    A good point which I corrected. I believe my grammar was misleading ...reads better now....

    Thank you
