    Hi -
    I just recently discovered this format. I've found so much info on this forum, and a lot of enthusiastic people.
    You guys love these cameras - I can't wait to get one of my own.

    Mine will be a step up from my P&S Lumix, which just broke this week. I'm so excited to have better quality in a highly portable camera. My DSLR, which I dearly love, is just so BIG! And I hate letting family members use it - can't stand to see it in someone else's hands. So, I think I can safely hand an Oly off to someone else to snap a shot and not have an anxiety attack.

    Thanks in advance for an awesome forum!

    I'm more possessive about my PEN than I am my DSLR. The DSLR is rugged and tough, and can be dropped or banged about without worry. The PEN is more fragile, and is actually a more important tool in my arsenal.

    Welcome, and the pen's are great camera's. And I travel allot with them on a motorcycle and flying. And they are very durable. And the photo images are excellent with great color.
