    Hi all. My name is Steve. My background is that of an architect. Photography has been a part time amateur pastime of mine for many years. My first camera was an OM2n purchased around 1980. I still have it and have used it recently. One of my relatives gave me their Nikon FE system a few years ago. I still have that too. I have quite a few OM and Nikkor ais lenses.

    I have had a couple of point and shoots but my purchase last spring of an E-P2 with an Olympus 14-42mm and a Panasonic 20mm was the first time I have stepped into any serious digital photography. I read more about photography and shoot less than is probably good.

    Available light shooting (no flash) is my favorite. I like the Pany 20 and the OM 50mm 1.4f (with the MMF2 adapter) a lot. I am thinking about an adapter for the Nikon manual lenses. Any thoughts?

    I am looking forward to interesting reading from you all. Thanks for having what looks like a great forum and for making this opportunity possible.

    Welcome. My wife and I have a small cottage on Beaver Island off the coast of Charlevoix.

    What part of Michigan is yours?

    Welcome Steve! I'm a Michigander myself (although I reside in Chicago now). Manual lenses are fun! The adapters are an inexpensive way to put the old lens into use again. Enjoy!
