    Hello everyone!

    I guess this is a common story these days. I put all my Nikon gear for sale yesterday and I'm gonna switch to an OM-D to make my gear smaller and lighter to lug around.

    I have focal lengths from 12 to 600 mm with Nikon and my backpack weights over 20 kg with tripod strapped on it... Over the years I have noticed that I miss a lot of photo opportunities because I was just lazy to carry around my gear. Hopefully this will change now. :) 

    Maybe in a week or so I can shoot my first frames with OM-D. It's interesting to see how I like it. It sure feels nice to handle in the stores.

    A few words about myself if someones is interested to know. My real name is Kim and I live in Helsinki, Finland. I've done "serious" photography since the 90's and I shoot mostly landscapes or more specifically seascapes. With the light and small OM-D I'm hoping to also start a bit with street photography which I have avoided with my current f/2.8 zooms as they feel too big and intrusive.

    Anyway it's nice to be around here now. :)

    Welcome! The :43: system has some nice, fast primes that are great for street shooting. Enjoy!

    So now it's done. I just walked home with OM-D, grip, Panny 7-14, 12-35 and a new nice and light carbon tripod and head.

    My fiancée doesn't know about this yet. I might not wake up tomorrow morning.
