    Hi all,

    I've been lurking on the site for a while now, and thought I should say hello.

    I am an enthusiastic photographer living in London UK. I've been using M43 equipment for a couple of years, starting with the wonderful GF1 and having recently upgraded to the G3 (I missed having a viewfinder).

    Since then I've been playing around with different lenses, with my most recent purchase being the Olympus 45mm 1.8, as well as a couple of converted CCTV lenses (25mm 1.4 has produced some interesting results...)

    I think that's about it - looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Tom

    Thanks all! A nice welcome.

    Quick query - does anybody use the iPad app to view the site? I've been struggling with getting thumbnails and images to load.

    I use the app but it is pretty useless for images.

    Okay - handy to know that it isn't something I've done!

    Hello Tom ... and welcome from a fellow G3 owner. I used to be a Londoner but cannot claim to be one now that I've moved just south into Surrey and no longer commute into town.

    Welcome Tom,

    You are in a great city that offers many photo opportunities especially street and architecture.

    We try and get up to Islington (for Canal festival in Sep), and also visit Camden Town where the opportunities are amazing.

    I have recently upgraded my GF1 to the GX1 and use the 20mm as my street lens - very happy with this small sharp combo.

    You can see my images including London here:

    Hi, Tom from a native Londoner now living on the Kent coast. It's closer than Wellington, though :wink:

    Hi,

    Some great images there! I'm slowly putting together a portfolio website with a friend - we wanted to try something different and so we're building it from scratch (which means it may take some time...)

    I'm actually Islington based myself (both work and home) but not sure what the Canal festival is?

    Canal Festival

    Hi Tom,

    The canal Festival is held every Sept on the towpath near Wharf Road, it has stalls, barges, events and all sorts going on and is usually a great event (1 day only).

    Here are a few photos from past ones (GF1+20mm)
