I am a complete newcomer to forums, in fact this is my very first post on any forum and I feel pretty sure that in the coming weeks I will make more than a few mistakes and ask some stupid questions, but heck, we all have to start somewhere. Having purchased an E-P2 a week ago, I was browsing the web for more information and came across the mu-43 group. I am amazed at the friendliness of the members and the amount of information and help you give to each other. As a result, here I am: My Name is Jim and I live in North Yorkshire, UK, not too far from the coast. I am recently retired and have been interested in photography most of my life but never progressed much beyond snapshots despite the Pentax SLR's and eventually Canon DSLR's. I hope to learn from forum members. My current gear is Canon EOS5D (mk1) with various lenses and now the Olympus E-P2 with 14-42 kit lens. I also have M42 and Canon FD adaptors for the Oly which just came yesterday (I have a number of geriatric lenses and can't wait to try them out). I use Mac computers and Adobe Lightroom to keep track of my pics. Since retiring my wife and I have taking to travelling more and spend a fair amount of time in the English Lake District and exploring Florida USA. I have a number of hobbies and regularly switch between them so never get bored. Photography, travel and boats being the main ones (ideally sailing boats but my wife gets upset when they heel over so at present its a power boat). Thanks for setting up such a great forum, I'm looking forward to participating and hope I can contribute something useful. Jim.
