    Hi,
    I'm a new member here. Was using DSLR before but sold all my gears and replaced it with OM-D EM-5. Hope that was a right move :wink:

    Hi. Welcome to the forum.

    I'm in KL too. I've been living here 2.5 years. REally like it in KL. So many great street photography opportunities.

    Just sold my Nikon D3s last week and bought and OMD and suite of lenses. It should arrive tomorrow. Looking forward to having a lighter weight kit.

    Hi Richard,

    Nice to know you, I'm also foreigner in KL and have been living here for 2 years now. Indeed KL have so many street photography opportunities and that's one of the reason I bought OM-D :)

    Hi Syuhada!

    No worries - I sold my Nikon D300 and associated gear in the move to :43: and I haven't looked back.

    I think you'll enjoy the new format.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Welcome to the forum Syuhada.
    You will have regrets about selling you DSLR sometimes, but the gains outweigh the losses if you don't want to carry all that gear about. Mountain trekking comes to mind, or wandering around those Malaysian outbacks, hard work.

    Thank you guys.
    @Vincen77o: you are right... I started to look to :43: back in May when I went to Mount Rinjani in Indonesia. I brought along my Canon 40D and 2 lenses and it was very hard indeed.
