    Hi everyone,

    Came across this site while researching my prospective :43: purchase. Was encouraged to proceed based on many of the posts and photographs on this site. I'm now the proud owner of an E-P2, 17, 14-42 & 9-18.

    Up to now I've always used Nikon kit. F90x, F100, D70, D300 and an assortment of Nikkor lenses. Great cameras & lenses but never fun to carry.

    Welcome - ditch the 17mm and get the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 though ;)

    Grum - why would I want to ditch the 17mm. Results so far show it to be a cracking lens.

    I'm sure it's good, but the 20mm 1.7 is amazing - imo. Sorry, only messing, I'm sure you will enjoy it plenty :)
