Greetings everyone! I'd like to start off by saying this site is VERY helpful. My wonderful wife bought me a GF1 (with pancake lens) for my 40th birthday. I absolutely love the camera. I'm planning on buying the OM adapter so I can use some of my old OM-1 lenses. I previously shot with a Canon G6 (still love the camera). I really wanted to step up to a dSLR, but with a 2 year old and a 4 year old, just not feasible to lug around a bulky camera as I chase after them :) The MFT format is perfect!

I work as a Project Manager for a microphone company here in the Chicagoland area. Like I said, I have 2 little boys and 1 wonderful wife (as evidenced by the GF1 purchase ;-))

I look forward to enjoying this wonderful site.

Thanks!

Thanks so much Spaceghost, now I can offer you the official unofficial welcome to mu443.com!

I find it's really nice when people do stop in for a brief intro because it does give others a bit of insight as to where people are coming from both geographically and photographically. There's a very nice mix from both in here.

Your birthday present sure was a nice one. I'm going to have to read this aloud to my husband as my birthday is coming up, albeit I'm quite beyond 40 years old.

Take your time, check out the Housekeeping forum for handy "stickies" and I'll be looking forward to seeing more of you and some of your photos from that camera.:drinks:

Welcome to the forum! Your wife must be the best and most wonderful wife in the world! That is until: (1) I get married (if it ever happens); and (2) I convince my future wife (whomever she may be) to buy me a M9!!!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Great community. I DO have the best wife! I'll be spending the better part of this next year trying to think up a good argument for the 7-14 :)

Why wait until the next birthday? July 4 is coming up soon enough! That calls for some gift receiving (and giving)! Tell her that you need the 7-14 so that you can better document the growth of the boys! The 7-14 would allow you take photos of them even when you don't have the GF1 pointed directly at them!

Armanius, good points! What better reason than our country's birthday? :) I think her argument will be "why don't you just use the Olympus 135mm / 3.5 you have and an adapter?".
