    I migrated over here after several years of lurking around Rangefinderforum.com Portal - Rangefinderforum and reading about the :43: format over there. I don't have a kit yet, but hope that will change soon (maybe a nice G1 body will pop up for me on the classifieds soon???!!)

    Seeing images from the 20mm f1.7 is what really sold it for me. I love fast prime lenses with a warm, pleasing out of focus area. I can't wait to get ahold of one. :biggrin:

    Welcome aboard. We're neighbors in a few ways.
    I'm in Philly and hang out at RF also.
    There a few things available in the classifieds.
    Good luck on finding something.

    Re: Welcome from New Jersey

    Hi, Welcome to the mu-43.com forum. I have the Panasonic GF1 with 5 Panasonic lenses for it. I am waiting for the GF2 to be announce. I will most probably get the GF2 and use it as the second body. I realy like the Micro FourThird system. I normal shoot in RAW and use Photoshop Elements to convert the RAW to JPEG. I do very little editing of pictures. The RAW to JPEG looks good to my eyes. I save all of my photos on an external HDD which I use only for storage of my photos. The E-P2 is another excellent camera. I am from Roebling New Jersey. Since leaving Roebling I only been back twice, once when my father passed way and the other time when my mother passed away. Since 1961 I have been working and now retired in California.

    Shooter -- Thanks, I live right outside Philadelphia in Camden county... just a short ride on the Patco to get into town.

    I don't really post much at RFF but love hanging out and learning from those that have so much more to offer than I do. I learned how to develop my own b&w film and prints through reading there....built my own little apartment- closet-darkroom, and have learned about all the different varieties of camera formats out there. I now have a rangefinder: Yashica GSN, a twin lens reflex: Rolleiflex, a classic SLR: Canon AE-1, and hopefully soon, a :43: will join the group.

    I also have a Panasonic LX2 for a digital p&s. It is a neat camera and I love the 16:9 aspect ratio. However, it is not a great people shooter. (barrel distortion = big noses at the wide angle, and lens stops down and becomes too slow when zoomed out)

    LaMesa -- So I guess you are saying I would be better off if I moved to California? hahaha :tongue:

    Herman -- thank you.
